Who are your mentors in life? How did they help your journey?
My mother Joan is one of my mentors; in the final months of her life she taught me how to see the beauty in the chaos and the messiness. One morning in the hospital I asked her if there was anything she was grateful for and she said, ”I woke up today, I am grateful for that.” Mum battled with brain cancer for 18 months and through the unspeakable challenge of facing the end of her life she taught me that despite the pain and discomfort of our circumstances there is always something to be grateful for. Dr. Joe Dispenza, author of "You are the Placebo” and “Breaking The Habit of Being Yourself” is also someone who continues to inspire me. Through the application of his work I have come to understand the immense value of developing the latent power contained within my mind and the tremendous impact that this has on every area of my life.
A pivotal moment in your life so far?
The most pivotal moment in my life so far has been the death of my baby Magnolia. Mothering her for 39 weeks in my womb was an enormous privilege. Holding her beautiful body and walking through the fire of grief with her father has tattooed into the recesses of my heart and brain the importance of savoring every single moment.
What are you most grateful for?
My health, my husband, Magnolia and my incredible family and friends.

Who are you? How would you describe yourself?
I’d like to say I know for certain who I am but honestly I’m still figuring this out. Through my study of meditation and quantum physics I am beginning to experience and understand the greater part of myself that I perceive as non-physical. It’s hard to describe. There is something here that I can touch (my body) that for so long I thought was me and then there’s this other part of me that I can’t touch but I feel when I close my eyes and focus my attention and energy inward on the space around and within my body. I have a strong passion for learning, writing poetry and hosting events that assist women in unlocking their creative voice. I am working on my first book called “She Was Born; Poems of Loss and Liberation” it’s about the journey of healing after loss. I am hoping it will shed some light on the profound initiation that bringing a stillborn baby into the world is.
