What’s your favorite way to spend the weekend? Sitting by the pool with good friends, listening to good music, and enjoying the day.
What job would you be doing if you weren’t running your own business? I was considering going into teaching. In fact, I was just about done with my master’s in education when my father, who began the businesses, asked me to come back to work for him. I made the right decision for me.

What’s your best advice for starting a new health or wellness routine? Staying the course pays off. There will be times you’ll want to stop, cheat, or doubt the process.

How do you make healthy habits stick? Setting up healthy habits one at a time and remembering it should all become a part of our lifestyle…not just a temporary fix.
What can you do to feel better immediately? Practice pranayama (conscious breathing), meditation, reiki, sound therapy or a yoga practice based on what brings you balance now.

Eat healthy and plant based, meditate, and spend time journaling positive affirmations.
What do you do to look, or feel, better when you have: one hour? I exercise somehow when I have an hour that comes free.
