I also have been blessed to be leading passion centered retreat experiences for five years now in many unique populations and environments. I have lived at Kalani Retreat Center the Big Island of Hawaii in 2012 where I learned, researched, and breathed retreat as a lifestyle.

I live to rejuvenate the soul and find passion in helping other find the dream quality of life. My college background in Therapeutic Recreation is where I grew profound skills in program design, assessing peoples needs to thrive & live a freedom filled quality of life.   I am inspired deeply to create a place for community and individuals to express who they are, awaken life turned on with light and thrive alive. I recently was blessed and asked to teach NIA for a Yoga Retreat in Sayulita, Mexico in October 2013. I had dreamy opportunity while exploring the area to visit Haramara Retreat Center, a place I have been drawn to for many  years.  Stepping onto the land, I immediately felt at home, fell in LOVE with every thing in my site and knew this is where I will lead a retreat one day….and so here we are!  The dream is unfolding with you!!
