BACKGROUND

Health is my passion. I want to hone this field by incorporating multiple areas of health into my wellness philosophy. My role as a wellness professional will be to: allocate resources and implement programs that advocate for vulnerable communities so they can make informed decisions about their livelihood. I aim to provide cultural awareness and a spiritual approach as a means to inform, treat, and prevent illness.

Spiritual/Emotional Wellbeing- stress management, energy balancing, life coaching

Fitness- mind/body, yoga, pre/post natal, personal training
