Reason for starting
I originally started my business because I wanted to help busy professionals learn how to eat healthier & lead healthier, happier, more productive lives. I re-launched with new branding in 2011 after the birth of my 2nd son to help busy entrepreneurs perform better in all areas of life by drawing on the ancient wisdom of Eastern practices.

Biggest Success
Finishing my first book! “Refuel, Recharge, and Reenergize: The Conscious Entrepreneur’s Guide to Taking Back Control of Your Time and Energy”, was self-published in August 2012. It’s available in paperback and Kindle version on A free chapter can be downloaded at

What is your top challenge and how have you addressed it?
Prioritizing time with family (two boys, age 6 and 2) and self-care while growing my business to live up to my big, bold vision! I struggle daily with the challenges of being a mom, overseeing “household operations,” running my own business, and more. My life is the laboratory for all the Eastern-inspired strategies I share with clients.

Who is your most important role model?
My husband. He has this magical ability to be an amazing, fun-loving father, an incredibly understanding and supportive husband, an inspiring and successful advocate of educational opportunities for urban youth, and a successful professional. He inspires me to be a better person every day.
