Mind

I'm a huge nerd for anything psychology, spirituality or holistic health. If I spent as much time reading as I did compiling book lists for what I want to read next, I'd probably have less dust on the bookshelf! :P

Body

Getting outside and moving is of paramount importance to me. Nothing shakes off a bad mood like some healthy grub and ROGA or GOGA (that's running + yoga or goat yoga.)

Spirit

My meditation practice (though, inconsistent at times!) is a huge source of refuge for me. When all else seems scary or uncertain, I can always go back to my breath.

Relationships

My friends and family are my support, my love and my inspiration. We drive each other crazy sometimes, but who doesn't? I wouldn't be who and where I am today without them.

Work

It's not work, it's play. When you love what you do you're constantly challenged, humbled and excited to be an expert and a student at the same time every day.

 

Yeah, yeah, yeah – that's all great. But do you want my full resume? Read on!
