One of my greatest loves in life is my journey.
For as long as I can remember, I longed for a home. A place where family and friends come together to share meals and stories. I wanted a point on the map that belonged to me; a place to explore my ideas and allowed for growth.
As a child, my non-traditional home life was spent in flux between my separated parents’ houses and the open doors of friends who saw my urgent need for refuge. The instability placed me in a position of vulnerability where I leaned into my discomfort and learned to ask for help. Learning to listen and ask for help became the launch pad for connection.
Through moments of joy, kindness, courage and calmness, I was able to connect my authentic self with the outside world that welcomed and challenged me. Over time, I discovered my way home. This has become the purpose of my personal and professional work and is the subject of my children’s book, Your Heart Compass.
My journey continues.
As my interest in connection, spirituality, and the human experience grew, it brought me to the study of forest therapy. In 2022, I earned my guide certification from the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy.
Today, I share my home with my husband, Hani, my two children, Leila and Tarik, our dogs, Muffin and Mookie, and our dog in spirit, Marlon Brando. I nurture connection and encourage continued learning in all areas of my life. I explore the interconnected nature of all living beings in my walks and in my monthly newsletter, On The Path. You will find my offerings in my books, poems, newsletter, blog, guided meditations and guided forest therapy walks. You will also find me sharing and connecting in social spaces on Instagram, Facebook, TikTok and LinkedIn. My heart is always open for you to join me on this journey.
Let’s journey together.
