But, that wasn't always my journey.
Nature & Novels
Growing up in small town New Brunswick I spent the majority of my time exploring nature, stomping in streams, or with my nose in a book.
Middle school and Junior High years were rough for me. I had 9 other kids in my class, so naturally being the “misfit", I was the outlier and didn’t really fit.
After graduating from TRHS in 2010, for a number of different reasons I took time from school and went right into the work force.
I got hired on the spot at Urban Planet where I found many of my strengths in management and was quickly promoted into leadership roles.
Late Nights & Narcotics
Half a decade of managing a team taught me lessons that years of University couldn't have scratched the surface of.
Though I loved my job, one thing in my life became very clear after I was let go.
My addiction was getting the better of me.
... It was circa 2011-2012 and I was hitting my rock bottom.
It took two very concerned friends cornering me in the kitchen with genuine concerns about my life, to make me realize that my moment was now or probably never.
I am living proof that it is true that one small but intentional action performed daily, can lead you into an entirely different world. A world that your current self feels is impossible and only in dreams.
Nurturing & Nourishing
In the spring of 2013 after a year of terribly rocky waters I recognized the only thing for me to do was up and go.
Relocating to Nova Scotia allowed me to get away from my current party scene and get a fresh new start.
I began to make small daily shifts, which over the years have collectively led me through recovery, and into healthier daily habits.
I completed my Acupuncture degree in 2020, while 6 months pregnant and in the middle of a global pandemic.
Today I am on a mission to share my experience, teach others about the effectiveness of traditional healing and show others that living a more empowered life is possible.
That it is true with ONE small but INTENTIONAL action performed DAILY, it can put you in an entirely different circumstance and headspace..
