One of my greatest loves in life is my journey.

For as long as I can remember, I wanted a home. A safe place where family and friends gather to share meals and stories. A welcoming place to cultivate ideas and encourage growth. As it turns out, as a child, I did not have a traditional home life. I spent many years in transition between my parents’ homes and friends’ homes. Although the transitions created feelings of instability, they also placed me in a position of vulnerability. In this vulnerable position, I learned the importance of knowing how to ask for help and how to accept and appreciate the help of others.

This led me to another important life lesson: the power of connection. Through experience, I learned that it takes one moment of mindful connection to shift from negativity to positivity. It takes mindful connection to shift from a fixed mindset (thoughts/perception) to a growth mindset (heart/action).

Over several years, I worked to establish my own home, which I now share with my husband, Hani, my two children, Leila and Tarik, my dog, Muffin, and my dog in spirit, Marlon Brando. This site is an extension of my home. It is a safe and welcoming place where I share pieces of my life story, my work and my belief in the power of connection. I hope you will join me by sharing pieces of your life story and your life’s work.

Let’s journey together.
