I live an inspired and creative life. But for many years I lived completely unaware of the crisis brewing inside me; until I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Soon thereafter I decided to take a non-traditional route to heal and discovered the healing power of raw & living foods.
By embracing a raw and living foods diet I detoxified my mind, body, & spirit. As toxins and 30 pounds of unwanted energy left my body I felt light, full of hope, energy, and inspired action. I watched myself grow calmer, more patient, and more loving – more of the person I truly longed to be. (This picture of my in the hat was taken in July of 2008, before my raw foods journey.)
A raw & living foods lifestyle opened up the physical space within me to expand and grow beyond my wildest dreams.
Used purely as a call to serve, I embrace my experience as an opportunity to help others live the life they desire. The benefits I have gained through exploring my own health issues have led to my passion for supporting and encouraging health and wellness in others. By teaching I confirm my faith and maintain my connection with raw & living foods. I live to inspire others the way I have been with raw & living foods.
Over the last decade or so I have lived and worked in many exotic places, but I proudly call Santa Barbara home. As a Mother, Wife, Artist and Coach I spend much of my time following my small children, stretching to use my artistic energy teaching art, building web sites and creating intentional jewelry, (here you will find a sampling of it SynergyJewelry.com).
I truly enjoy "un-cooking" and see it as a highly creative method of preparing food. As a graduate of the Living Foods Institute in Atlanta & The Optimum Health Institute in San Diego, I bring a special knowledge of natural detoxification and have a little gourmet twist to my raw & living foods lifestyle. I teach a weekly raw foods “un-cooking” class at Child’s Play Preschool and coach grown-ups about raw foods, creating custom food plans, personal chef services, and teaching classes.
