Nature & Novels

Growing up in small town New Brunswick I spent the majority of my time exploring nature or reading a book.
(Oh the timeless & innocent years!)

 

Middle school and Junior High years were rough for me. I had 9 other kids in my class, so naturally, being the “strange” one, I was the outlier and didn’t really fit. As a highly sensitive person, being bullied was the norm and I spent a lot of time alone crying as mom was always working long hours to try and keep up financially.  

 
After graduating from TRHS in 2010, for an accumulation of reasons I decided to take some time from school. 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.

... I was snorting pills in the bathroom on break, and smoking meth before going on shift.

 

It took two very concerned special women cornering me in the kitchen with genuine concerns about my life, to make me realize that my moment was now or 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..
