I'm in the relationship business...
Whether it’s your relationships with people, food, nature,the products you purchase, or yourself…how can I serve and support you?
Whether you’ve just landed on this page or been around my site, you’ll find a variety of topics on this page. This is your library of resources which are meant to give you tips for accomplishing more and offer you self-empowerment.
If you don’t know me, you may be surprised to find a plant-based recipe, organic baby powder, and a time management schedule on the same web page. Those closest to me understand this is how I’ve created success in my own life. That’s why I share it with others—I know being healthy is more than just green shakes.
(Don’t get me wrong, I love green shakes! It’s just that I rarely find people addressing the mundane tactics needed for us to thrive in our health, rather than just survive. It’s more than just drinking enough water and eating salads.)
I believe in balance. We’ve unknowingly given away most of the balance in our lives and it’s become one of our biggest challenges as a species.
I take walks with my husband nearly every day. During our ventures, I’ll observe the numbers and variations of birds, trying to identify them with the least bit of information possible. I’ll try to note the shapes and patterns of trees around us, or the flow of the water (or melting snow here in Maine!). I’ll ponder a certain noise if it breaks my train of thought or conversation. I’m always curious about how what I’m seeing reflects what’s going on in my life at that time.
As frou-frou as that may seem, I’m very grounded in reality. I wake a good deal before sunrise every day, have a large cup of water, stretch a little, meditate, have my coffee, watch educational videos, and plan my day.
I know what steps I need to take for the day and week, so I can accomplish my goals. I have a plan for what I’ll learn each month and what my major project or focus is.
I find nature balances my Type-A personality.
I may be a right-brained introvert, but I am also a very logical person who works best with a set routine of habits. I didn’t create my health and standard of living by accident. Nor should you.
An architect doesn’t hand a contractor a mere sketch of a home. A sturdy home is designed with an extensive set of blueprints. This page is your blueprint for a well-designed and healthy, fulfilled life.
The goal of this page is to give you resources for all I mentioned above…habits for a health mind, body, spirit. You’ll find an ever-growing Zibrary (zen+library=zibrary) of chakra materials, Ayurvedic practices, seasonal tips, tricks to being more eco-friendly, time management hacks, goal-planning tidbits, nutritional facts, and physiological and psychological information.
As with everything else on my site, you’ll find Facts not Fads™. I’m not a fan of trends. It’s probably the greatest gift my father gave me (after the gift of life, that is!).
I don’t watch the news, nor do I spend much time on social media. In all honesty, I’m quite out of touch with what’s going on in the world. I like it that way. My focus is on how to make the world a better place, not be reactive to what’s being shown to us by clever media sources.
So, without further ado, feel free to browse, download what interests you, reach out to me with questions, join the courses I’m creating, or share your own story with me.

Learn to separate fact from fad! In this 3-week course, you’ll learn how important sleep, meditation & exercise really are. You’ll learn how to nourish all your senses, get pantry basics, see how digestion works & how to shop for groceries. You in?
Oh yeah…there’s a NO-COST trial version you can take, as well! <3
This FREE course gives you a basic intro to herbal medicine. What many people consider weeds are actually quite medicinal.
In this SHORT course (it takes about 5 minutes to complete), you’ll learn about 6 common herbs that may be growing in your yard. If they are, please make sure you aren’t using pesticides if you chose to ingest them.
Consider what you can save in future hospital bills if you’re on a path of thriving instead of surviving.
- What’s the cost of your insurance? (By the way, our insurance industry rates are determined by how much every one of us uses it.)
- What’s the true cost of getting sick and having to take time off?
- What’s the cost of losing loved ones because you didn’t have the simple information they could use?
I know the cost—I lost both of my parents before I was 30. They weren’t even 50, and died of preventable diseases. Both of my paternal grandparents also passed away in their prime from preventable diseases.
The worst part?
I now have the knowledge it would taken to save their lives.
Sadly, it’s not the knowledge neither my family nor I were given through conventional medicine.
Last year, I helped someone reverse the same preventable disease my mother had. In just 7 months, the ONLY change they made was to their diet. The diet they follow is NOT what Western medicine prescribes for this condition, by the way.
Can I be a bit transparent with you? If you’re ever in a place where you’re frustrated, burnt out, losing faith, feel lost, or feel it may be time to make a change, you’re not alone.
We’ve been there (meaning Rob and I). We encourage you to fight for what you want, follow you passions, and keep dreaming. Here’s a quick article about our (sudden) relocation from NY to Maine. We hope it’ll help inspire you when you need to make a change!
