Thanks for being here, and learning a little bit about me!
Here are some random things about me, in no particular order:
I am an over-zealous project undertaker, a real food enthusiast, a self-development junkie, and a multipotentialite with many different passions. I am a lover of learning and adventuring, and a firm believer in living an optimal life full of vitality and happiness.
I am a traveler at heart, I have been to over eighteen countries and lived for extended periods of time - in Spain for study abroad, and Ukraine for Peace Corps for about two years. I spent four years going to different Model United Nations conferences all over the world.
In Ukraine for the Peace Corps, I taught English in a small school in a small town, in the middle of the country (Kirovogrhad Oblast). It was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life, interacting with another culture on a daily basis and integrating myself by learning the language and adopting cultural traditions. Outside of teaching English I also organized student camps that involved empowering teen girls in areas of self-image and worth, human trafficking, healthy relationships, and becoming leaders.
I love self-development but as you can tell with my education and travels I am also passionate about international/domestic development. Topics that I love to discuss/hope to involve myself more in, including all women's issues, undernourishment, poverty, and human trafficking.
I firmly believe that every single person has a right to know what is in their food, where it’s coming from, and what it is actually doing to their bodies. I also believe that people have a right to updated & real science, not science that is dictated by pharmaceutical industries, corporations, and the government.
I believe that the fake food companies, toxic corporations, and our healthcare system need a major transformation.
I believe they ALL need to be held accountable for their actions in their creation of a sick & chronically ill society. THEY are the drivers of all the conditions I am currently helping women and men fight on a daily basis.
I fell victim to all three of these powerful industries for many years. I had an autoimmune condition, allergies like you wouldn't believe, and digestive issues. I also had many other symptoms that were chocked up to be normal.
My passion lies in getting us back to a state of health and in taking back that power we know is rightfully ours.
What should be rightfully ours? Nourishing foods, health care that helps and heals, clean water, fresh air, nutrient filled soil, time to rest, time to play.
