My spiritual awakening began in 2011 after the death of my brother/best friend. I immediately began to feel an overwhelming void within me that the external world simply could not fill. While his physical body ceased to exist, I had a deep knowing that his energy was more present with me than ever. It was through this realization that I chose to embark on the path of spirituality in order to seek answers to life after death. Shortly after, I fell into the practice of yoga and meditation and in May of 2015, I graduated from my first yoga teacher training.  

In 2016, I started the journey of opening up my own yoga studio in Atlantic Highlands, NJ - Selfless Love Yoga. Throughout this time, I experienced multiple smaller awakenings that were short-lived, but kept me expanded and motivated enough to continue my search for the truth. After four beautiful and fruitful years, chose to close the doors permanently at the end of my lease due to not seeing a sustainable future in the world of COVID-19.


Shortly after closing, I began to experience a tremendous amount of tumultuous energies and a period of what seemed like everlasting darkness. While residing in this space, I felt as if I had no choice, but to spend time cocooning and being fully present in this stage of shadowy transition. I was called to step away from everyday earthly life and focus all of my attention on my own inner work. For far too long I had been battling my own demons constantly poking their heads around what began to feel like every corner I turned. I spent so much of my energy focused on helping others, that I had forgotten how to help myself. My soul grew weak and tired of living in this way and wanted to be set free - once and for all. I longed to feel the divinity I knew I held within me and the love I knew I deserved. It was time for me to find comfort within the dark in order to be pulled back into the light, which I so deeply craved.


Through immense inner reflection and work, long periods of silence, and a whole lotta L-O-V-E, I began experiencing longer lasting higher levels of consciousness. While this journey felt like it would last forever, it was a journey in which each and every step brought me to this exact moment in time. Within this personal transformation, my eyes have been opened to what my true calling is, my divine purpose, and what this world really needs right now. For as many humans to wake-up and look beyond the mayas (illusions) of this earthly plane and find their true essence, to align themselves with their souls, to find lasting self-love, and to live the lives they truly deserve.

I’ve walked a path full of experiences that have shown me the way, I’ve lived in the dark and danced in love with my demons, I’ve hit rock bottom and managed to rise back up, and I’ve learned valuable tools to aid myself in overcoming each and every hardship. All of which (and so much more) has ultimately brought me exactly to this point. I am deeply honored to now serve as a guide for all of those who are in the midst of transitioning into this new divine human that you were always meant to be... that deep down you feel called to embody and embrace with open arms. Understanding what others go through is invaluable and it was imperative for me to have lived in pain and despair, to have found my way from darkness to light before helping others to do the very same. 

"People come into your life to help you shift into a new and more authentic version of yourself. The most challenging can be your greatest teachers - even if they teach you about what you need to avoid to have a peaceful productive life. Then there are those who magically enter your life with divine synchronicity to help direct you to the fulfillment of your dreams. Today say good-bye to the reflection of your shadow in others, and follow the light bringers... magic is afoot, greater than you can imagine."
