a conscious lifestyle blog & supportive space
I currently live in Brooklyn, NY with my other half, Dan and our two bengal kittens, Bodhi and Zoey. I'm a Kundalini yoga, meditation & breathwork teacher, empowerment coach, intuitive guide and writer.
When I am not curating content for The Dreamerie, connecting with this community or working with clients you can find me recharging with lots of self-care, practicing kundalini, experimenting in the kitchen & dreaming up my next adventure.
I was inspired to create this site and do this work through my own healing journey which began over 10 years ago.
In 2011, while living in NYC and attending school at the Fashion Institute of Technology, I began to feel sick. Very sick. I ignored the signs and symptoms for weeks until my body was screaming at me. Within 3 months I moved back to Florida with my family and was undergoing chemotherapy before receiving a bone marrow transplant that would save my life.
I wrote about this journey on my blog, How a bone marrow transplant was the best thing that ever happened to me.
It was at this time I connected to a dream I had long let go of, to start a blog and share the many topics I am passionate about, find my community & continue to immerse myself deeply in understanding how to heal myself on every level. I started my first blog, Jewels of a Dreamer in early 2013.
I moved back to NYC shortly after my transplant and over the years as I continued on my healing journey, I began to stray from my own dreams. I wrote about this journey on The Dreamerie, Past, Present & Future • An Update.
At the time, the experience of not being alignment with myself, not listening to my body and not doing the work I was put on this planet to do was too much for my body to handle. May 2017 I was sick once again, in what would be the biggest wake-up call of my life I was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome and temporarily lost mobility on the right side of my face. I wrote about my experience with this diagnosis and healing here: My Experience Healing From Ramsay Hunt Syndrome.
My health journey has cracked me open in ways I couldn’t imagine. And while the challenges have been some of the most difficult moments of my life, I wouldn’t change a thing.
My faith in this path is unwavering.
My trust in the journey cannot be broken.
Just when I think I can not surrender any more, I do.
It is because of my health journey and all the ways in which I have healed myself, that I have been able to connect deeply to my purpose on this planet. The why I wake-up every morning bursting with excitement to share, connect and teach. What this site is all about.
Because it was when I started truly understanding myself on the deepest of levels and took responsibility for my life that I began to heal, find clarity and take action towards fulfilling my dreams.
This is the inspiration behind The Dreamerie.
Empowering you with the tools to make your dreams a reality.
