And, We’re Live!

Welcome! Thank you for visiting my site. I thought I’d take this first blog post to introduce myself and share a little about who I am, my background, what I’m doing, and why.  First, a little about me. I’m more or less a Philly area native - I moved here when I was three, and apart from college, have lived here ever since. I currently reside in Philadelphia with my husband and our dog Grace.

So, what is it that I do? I like to say that I wear a lot of hats. Quite literally, as those who know me personally will attest to. But also in life. I’m yoga instructor. I’m a Travel Planner who has owned and operated my own travel planning company, Chimera Travel, for the past 14 years. I’m a health advocate, with a primarily mental health awareness and advocacy. I’m writer and am currently in the process of publishing my first novel. I’m a certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor.

And so, I’ve decided to tie these all together on one site. I believe that each of these overlaps in their own way, and since I couldn’t find anything specifically that involved all of my passions, I’ve created it myself. I truly believe in total wellness - mind, body, and spirit, and I believe that each of us connect to these in different ways. It may be a physical workout or training session. It maybe yoga or meditation or another mindfulness practice. It may be through creativity and imagination. It may be through exploring a place that deeply speaks to us, connecting to other people despite differences in location and culture. It may be sharing our story with health struggles to motivate change or to help others who are struggling, working together to improve our opportunities for treatment and healthcare.

I’m passionate about each and every one of these topics, and I want to connect with others through each of them. And so, I’ve created my own business, in which I’m able to help others to recenter, reconnect, explore, experience, and express. I’ll be blogging about each of the areas, and you can learn more about the specific topics and services that I offer on the tabs and drop down menus at the top of the site. And of course, I’d love to connect with you on social media!
