I'm the founder of Return to Sacred and have over 10 years of experience as an entrepreneur in the wellness industry. I guide business leaders who are ready to ditch burnout, strengthen boundaries & make meaningful impact by uncovering blind spots. I've specialized in offering tools through an ancient mystery school rooted in oral tradition since 2013 and worked with thousands of people. My mission behind Return to Sacred is to support change agents like you in developing the capacity to face life’s challenges and save time, money and energy in building a better world.
As you can probably tell this authentic Mystery School in 2011 gave me access to a power within I couldn’t obtain through any other system with the same level of depth and purity. As I took steps forward this spark became a stronger flame to burn away crippling self-doubt and helplessness. I give credit to this spiritual pathway that has supported me in stripping away layers and gifting me an unshakable sense of worthiness to fully live life alive. You deserve this feeling too and I think if you're still here reading my story it's for a reason.
During challenging times I have the bandwidth to listen to that soft voice that navigates me every step of the way. There is confidence, clarity, support and inspiration on such a consistent basis. My purpose cannot be locked down, I pivot online and continue to do the inner work and share these practices with others like a good dessert. In person or at a distance, there is nothing sweeter and more fulfilling than helping people make the breakthroughs they’ve been striving to achieve.
I built a deeper connection with myself, which gave me the courage to let go of what was draining me. My foundation rests not just on the understanding that I am an eternal being, but also how to apply this knowledge into daily life. By knowing my true worth and investing in what is most important, I began giving myself the freedom to do less and hold more. This meaning I wasn't managing people's emotions in the background anymore and I started to let go of the reactiveness. I felt a new level of capacity with my progression.
Shortly after I left my job I met a guide from the Modern Mystery School and received a Life Activation session. To be honest I wasn't sure I needed it, my cup was full and it felt subtle at first. I was unsure what was happening, yet I continued to follow the breadcrumbs of curiosity. I took the leap of faith and experienced initiation, many doors opened for me after that two day training. I had found what I was looking for: a way to function on a higher level. Utilizing ancient lineage-based energy tools, I awakened parts of myself that I could explore and integrate in a balanced way. My life began to shift from scattered to sacred.
I completed my yoga teacher training in 2009 and learned more about energy centers of the body. I was curious, but it seemed like an abstract concept that did not apply to my modern day-to-day life. Synchronistically a few months later my mother, a nurse at Children's Hospital, was trained in Usui Reiki at the exact time I was in a minor car accident. Although she was skeptical and insecure about giving me a treatment, she complied. After the experience I was blown away, my body felt almost immediately free of pain. I found a teacher to train with weeks later. Access to the unseen and working with energy was the missing puzzle piece. However, inside I felt there must be more.
started entrepreneur life
I retired from my position as an elementary school teacher and embarked on my new adventure, a serial entrepreneur. My goal was to be everything and do whatever it took to get there. I drove myself dizzy with stress chasing my own tail and people pleasing. My primary mode of operation was adrenaline, rather than vitality – although I didn’t know the difference at the time. I knew something needed to change and I thought to myself, "When I feel like a joyful five-year-old with power I'll know Ive found my way."

Moved & opened up a healing center
I was given the ability to live out my biggest dream at the time: open up a yoga and healing center. I had to pinch myself most days that this was my life. However I was still dreaming too small and forcing things to fit. Luckily the tools served as an accelerator to help me surrender quickly and sit in the unknown until I figured out my next steps.

Launched a business strategy
In college I discovered yoga, which wasn't widespread at the time, I became hooked. Yoga undoubtedly saved my life and opened me up to a whole new world of alternative healing. I felt purpose studying to become an elementary school teacher and minoring in philosophy. I was dabbling with buddhism and meditating in a temple. Overall I felt drawn to try as many different healing tools as possible. However, something still felt incomplete. I was still fading in and out of dissociation with slippery coping strategies. My foundation wasn't stable, yet I didn't know how to make the changes needed to let go and feel consistently anchored. I craved having full access to my spirit, while feeling grounded in my human body.

Teaching in Boston Public
enrolled in college
After the compulsion for constant control led me down a road to complete self-destruction, I decided to make a change. I had an awakening before things turned for the worst. I knew I had a reason to stay alive and chose to reach out for help with the ounce of strength I had left. I was diagnosed with anorexia and attempted to reconfigure my life at age seventeen. I began my journey with conventional methods of therapy and later outpatient treatment for my life threatening eating disorder. Most days I was left feeling frustrated, depressed and hopeless. Dissecting old stories didn’t help me break the cycle, only seemed to reinforce the narrative of worthlessness. I was seeking tools, but didn't know where to look, all I knew was that medication wasn't my path.
