WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT TGS?
The staff, hands down. Not only are they great at what they do, but they do it with such intention and love of community.
What is one piece of advice you’d share with your younger self?
Trust your intuition — it’s Divine guidance. This concept has been tested many times over throughout my life. It definitely takes practice and self-trust, but I’m grateful to be more in flow with my intuition today than I’ve ever been. It’s something I’m passionate about helping my clients tap into as well, whether through meditation or other wellness modalities.
If you could have dinner with 3 people, dead or alive, who would you choose and why?
Maya Angelou – So much has happened in the world since she transitioned. I’d love to soak up her wisdom on where we’ve been and where we’re going.
Alice Coltrane – I feel deeply connected to her work and would love to pick her brain about music, well-being, and spirituality.
Toni Morrison – It’s so inspiring to know that she published her first book at 39 and went on to publish for roughly 50 years after that. I’d love to ask her what inspired her most
What’s one hidden skill or talent that you possess that people might not know?
I sing. I went from writing songs on my Muppet Baby keyboard when I was little to writing, recording, and performing through my college years and throughout my twenties.
Music is still part of everything I do, including WorthyWell. So it was only natural to curate several playlists to inspire me as I developed the brand. It’s fun to now share these with clients for inspiration as we journey together. Check them out by searching WorthyWell on Spotify or Apple Music. Wake Up is my favorite.
