How do you know Erin and EAT.PRAY.MOVE?
After meeting Erin in NYC, I took one of the retreats to Ischia, Italy, and my life was changed! First of all, I got to cross two life list items off—taking a yoga retreat and going to Italy. But the takeaway was so much bigger than just a vacation. I have never come away from time off with so much insight into who I am and what needed to change in my life. Taking one of her retreats makes you realize who you are beyond the noise of regular life, and it lets you experience joy you didn’t know was possible. People noticed a tangible difference in me when I came back home.
What do you do outside of EAT.PRAY.MOVE?
I am a certified holistic health and life coach, in addition to being a blogger. I work with modern women who are stuck or in a transition period and need support to move forward in life. From nutrition to relationships, I look at the big picture and help them remove obstacles and give them tools to become the best version of themselves. I have had my own struggles with health and stress in life, and I love being able to use my experiences to help others break through to the other side.
Why is yoga important to you?
I found yoga in a dark time in my life, and it truly saved me. While all the rest of the world was stressful, I found that the space of my mat was a comfort zone. And it was one I could access at any time. It’s a gift, not only to our bodies, but to our hearts and minds. It’s a reward really, after all the stress we put on our mind and body on a daily basis. It balances me in so many ways.

What do you love about travel?
I was fortunate enough to travel North America for 3 years with my husband’s work, so I was kind of forced into it a nomadic life for a bit. Within a month, I was hooked. I realized how much is out there and how much of it I didn’t even know I needed to see. You also get to see how much people are alike, no matter where they live. You get to learn the feeling behind a place, what drives it. Most of all, you get to learn and relearn how small you and your problems are. Travel makes me feel alive, period.
Favorite place you have traveled?
It’s a toss up. I loved Lake Louise, in Banff National Park, Alberta, I got to kayak in mint colored glacial waters, surrounded by snow capped mountains. It was like stepping into a postcard. But I was speechless at the beauty of Positano on the Amalfi Coast of Italy. Italy in general is everything you have ever imagined it to be and more.

What makes you happy?
Most things in life do, when I take the time to savor them.
But I love my husband, yoga, a good cup of tea, anything that gets me close to water, beautifully made vegetables, pugs, paperback books, cupcakes and TRAVEL!
Where is next on your travel list?
Paris! My husband pointed out that all of my favorite movies take place there—Amelie, Sabrina, Midnight in Paris.
I just want to drink amazing wine, eat the best croissants, see amazing art and wander through Montmartre.
