>“The most valuable gift you can give yourself is the time to nurture the unique spirit that is you”
I am a 51-year-old mother and wife.
I grew up in Unionville and now live in Leaside, an area I dreamt of living as a young adult.
I have always been lucky to have a great group of friends, but have found that as I grow my tribe of girlfriends has grown with me.
These friendships propel me forward and encourage me to live my best life in my best light.
Like many of us, I have travelled my own journey that has taken me to a place of brokenness.
In 2007 as a new mom to a beautiful baby boy, I was widowed at the age of 37.
My first husband was an incredible man and was taken from us way too young. I was left to raise our son and manage the grief of our tragic loss.
I made a promise to the universe that I would give our son a happy, loving beautiful life.
My journey of loss was full of heartache, pain and gapping invisible scars. It was also full of love, support, family, friends and hope.
In 2012, I was given a beautiful second chance at life and love when I met my husband Mike.
A man that was brave enough to fall in love with me when I was still very fragile. His promise was that he would help and hold me on my path of healing. He held true to his promise and here we are 9 years later, 7 years married, a beautiful, happy family.
Yoga was a big part of my healing and over the past 3 years to help myself and others I have turned my passion for yoga and mindfulness into a business.
I became a certified Mindful Meditation Coach, and Hatha, Restorative and Kids Yoga Instructor.
My goal is to help others through breath-work and movement manage the challenges of life by bringing balance to mind and body.
My biggest accomplishment over the COVID months was writing my first book “Ordinary Miracles ~ Life After Loss” a memoir of our journey written to help the widowed community to find the strength to love themselves and remember how important they are.
