I'm an islander originally from Kingston, Jamaica, and now I live in Texas with my husband, two teenagers and two fur babies. I love spending time with my family, doing yoga, gardening, being in nature, art and traveling. I am incredibly passionate about all avenues of health and wellness, including nutrition, yoga, yoga therapy, personal training, integrative wellness coaching and more.
In my personal journey with wellness, like many mothers, I have experienced the struggle of balancing everything and trying to make wellness a priority. It was hard but I found that balance is a process, and my wellness journey taught me that (like the oxygen mask metaphor implies) we must first care for ourselves to care for our loved ones fully.
In my career as an occupational therapist, I worked in various medical rehabilitation settings. So many of my patients suffered from preventable chronic diseases, such as obesity, asthma, heart/cardiovascular issues, pulmonary (lung) diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, Alzheimer's disease, cancer, digestive problems, arthritis, and skin issues.
It was heartbreaking to see patients readmitted to the hospital for the same issues over and over as their symptoms worsened for something that could have been prevented.
I felt that the missing component for them to get well again was to make health-focused lifestyle changes -- but lacked the guidance and experience to make these changes happen.
I wanted more for my patients, my family, my friends and myself and have devoted my career to using my experience to encourage wellness!
My work is the intersection between medical care and wellness. I am excited to share what I have learned with others, working hand-in-hand with healthcare professionals.
I have a special place in my heart for women's wellness. I understand the instinct to put others’ needs before your own and help them achieve optimal health and wellness through self-care.
I genuinely believe that when we as women can care for ourselves, we FLOURISH in mind, body, and spirit. This creates a ripple effect that benefits our loved ones and our community which ultimately makes the world a better place!
Best health always,
