Thanks for stopping by to see what fun things I’m up to.
Born in San Diego and raised on the North Shore of Oahu, I have had the best opportunity to grow up here and call Hawaii my home. I’ve raised three young adults and many fur babies along the way, while traveling and visiting many other beautiful places learning, sharing, teaching, and co-creating healthy lifestyles with beautiful souls. While I wasn’t raised in a holistic healing environment growing up, I fully embrace the benefits of plant based preventative care, conscious communication and energy healing as an integral way of life now. My gift is to be able to share this with you by expanding your options and allowing you to choose what tools work best for you. You can read my story HERE.
As a Wellness Advocate, for dōTERRA, and a personal energy coach, my first and foremost goal is to help people take BETTER care of themselves as naturally as possible. While most of us take care of ourselves to the best of our abilities, there are always ways to improve our health, well-being, finances and self-care. I’m here to show you different ways to get better results and keep you accountable the whole way through.

Essential Oils and Aromatherapy
Essential oils have been part of my toolbox for almost 10 years now! Aroma is memory-evoking….Emotionally, it can instantly take you back to your childhood memories…good and not so good…Grandma’s mothballs are a not so good memory…but the aroma of oranges bring me right back to sitting on my Grandpa’s kitchen counter as a two year old watching him sprinkle sugar on our wedges and anticipating the sweet citrus exploding in my mouth! To this day, Wild Orange essential oil is one of my favorites, and I add a couple drops to my water, champagne, smoothies, and yogurt.
Essential oils are highly concentrated, volatile, aromatic compounds found in the leaves, stems, bark, and flowers of plants. When planted properly, harvested at the right time, cared for and distilled accordingly to get the most potent and purest of chemical constituents, you not only get the aromatic properties for emotional benefits, but you also get the properties to support the physical well being of the body. Because they are so concentrated, 1 to 2 drops will usually get the job done, making essential oils an extremely cost effective choice for natural cleaning as well.
With all the essential oils on the market, how do you know which way to go? Health food store? Department store? Amazon? Instagram or Facebook ad? A company that offers science, support and education?
Great question! While essential oils are 100% natural (depending on the source), that doesn’t make them completely safe. There are some essential oils that should never be taken internally. Oils that support a healthy and clear respiratory system, for example, should be aromatically breathed in, not taken internally. Seems like common sense, but sometimes mistakes happen when guidance, education and clear communication are not part of the process. Before I studied essential oils, I bought a large bottle of frankincense from a local health food store and was so excited because it was “so cheap” I realized later that it was mixed with some kind of carrier oil and was not suitable for internal usage at all. The reason it was “so cheap” was because there was very little authentic frankincense in the bottle. It was cut with mostly carrier oil. No one in the store told me that when they directed me to the essential oil section. My advice on purchasing essential oils is to work with someone you are comfortable with and can trust. Ask questions, try samples to see if it works for you, only purchase when it feels right, not because someone says “this is what you need, trust me”. Be part of the educated decision. Create a 60 day plan. Some results are immediate, but understand that some results require time. Anyone who truly wants to help you on your journey will respect you AND your budget.
