What is your definition of a crushable girl?
For me, a crushable girl is a female who is living her most authentic life. This can be following her heart by making hard decisions and pathing her own path. I also think it’s someone who radiates kindness and love.
What is your heart’s path?
My heart’s path is to help people feel comfortable being 100% themselves. Our individuality is everything and when we acknowledge and accept it, is when we can truly shine. We all deserve to feel great in our skin and live as brightly as we want to!
What are you working on right now?
I created an online 7 part video program that walks people through my typical first time client health history consultation. Each step represents a part of how your unique DNA can become a roadmap towards bettering your skin. It goes through the following:
Other than that, my facial practice is continuously growing while I host different events throughout the next few months on self-care, skincare health, and tapping into your intuition to better yourself.
Daily rituals to support your health and happiness?
Honestly, spending time with my dog Josie! She’s my twin soul and we’re so connected that anytime I’m stressed, sad, or just plain lazy she lifts my whole spirit up. We go on daily walks together and helps me connect to nature while disconnecting from my devices. Other than that, I love to meditate and I’ve been doing a lot of work with Free + Native through her unblock programs which sends me into deep meditations. It’s a lot of self-work but it’s helped me discover some deeply rooted patterning to work through so that I can manifest my wildest dreams. I highly recommend her programs!
Where do you feel most alive?
Great question! Probably on the perimeters of LA like the mountains, forests, and the ocean. I feel my most alive when I have no wifi and responsibilities, probably because it reminds me of the pre-social media era when it was okay to not be connected all the time. Also known as my early 20s.
What is your secret to a successful relationship?
Understanding that there is no end goal, it’s a constant evolution. The work never gets easier but the more you put in, the more you deeply you connect and love. My husband really taught me to truly love myself authentically and fully - through our love, I’ve really learned to love myself. I know it’s cheesy, but it’s true and I’m so grateful.
Who are you listening to right now?
Podcasts! Favorites includes The Mother Loving Future podcast, The balanced blonde’s soul on fire (Jordan is a client and her journey is so inspiring), Armchair expert (really getting into this one for some reason), and Forked Up (Michelle is another one of my clients and she is soooooo intelligent that I find myself looking up everything she brings up on her podcast).
Something you currently cannot go without?
A flower essence spray by Lotus Wei called Fierce Compassion. One of my team members got it for me after one of my friends passed away and it has been a daily reminder to be compassionate towards myself and others.
4 best beauty secrets
What accomplishment are you most proud of?
I’m so proud of all my accomplishments because I’m from a small, small town with a population of about 7400 people. The fact that I successfully live in LA, own my own business, and make a difference in people’s lives who struggle with low self worth from their skin imbalances are all daily reminders that if you are yourself and work your butt off you can make your dreams come true. I don’t have a college degree and my path wasn’t always clear, but I keep going because I follow my heart.
What is your unique gift?
I’m intensely empathic and strongly intuitive. I can feel your feelings and see right through any front.
What are 3 ways of being that have contributed to your success?
What is your favorite scent?
Vetiver and palo santo are my top two always!
What taste on your lips can you not get enough of?
Honey hi gluten free bread toasted with Cap Beauty berry coconut butter. With a side of bulletproof coffee! I look forward to it every single morning and it’s delicious.
What are you letting go of?
The fear of people truly seeing me. I deserve to be seen, shadow parts and all.
What are you calling in?
An abundance of program members, a new car (I’ve been sharing a car with my husband for 3 years), and a baby! I hope to be pregnant in the next year.
What inspiring words of wisdom would you give your 10-year-old self?
Keep being you because your uniqueness will help a lot of people. And you’ll grow into your hips so enjoy it.
What do you LOVE about your yourself?
I love my skin and my sense of humor. I think I’m hilarious as hell and I’m always glowing!
