THIS KID. THE CATERPILLAR.

I was a quiet kid with my nose in a book most of the time, but around age 8 I became a full throttle extrovert. Silence was uncomfortable for me so I tried to make everyone around me happy...all the time. My parents put me in french immersion from kindergarten through to my final year in high school... so yes, I can speak French {but rather slowly}. I was 13 when I volunteered at the West Scarborough Boys & Girls Club and realized that giving back was always going to be a part of my life. I went on to study international business and secretly fell in love with global economics. My Mandarin teacher told me he appreciated my positive attitude and grit {谢谢}, but still I “should drop his class and take Spanish”... to this day I regret that I quit something because someone else thought it would be hard for me.


THE COCOON.

In my late 20s, I came to the realization that I had built my life on other people's expectations {or maybe lack thereof?!}.  I set about rebuilding my life on my own terms. I found professional success in the luxury industry in Toronto, London and Paris, but deep in my heart I knew that field wasn't my calling. I wanted to help people and didn't know where to start; I volunteered as an ambassador for the Canadian Women's Foundation {and personally moved 2 women out of poverty and helped raise funds to do the same for other women}. I was finally getting closer to what made me happy, I could feel it. Out of personal interest, I began studying holistic nutrition, meditation, yoga and eastern philosophies. I found so many answers to my own life's  questions that I became very passionate about sharing what I was learning with other women... with curiosity, humility and joy, I had stumbled upon my calling.

THE TEACHER. THE BUTTERFLY. 

Every day I teach the benefits of meditation, yoga, holistic wellness and conscious living - I am so grateful I get to do this work!  I created two companies with a mission to share this practice with everyone - across all demographics. Meditation Pusher focuses on sharing the game changing results of having a daily meditation practice and The Deeper Wellness addresses everything else to help people really live well from the inside out. Plus I am still giving back, my husband and I purchased a school in Haiti as a wedding present to each other through the Pinball Clemons Foundation when we got married. I continue to volunteer where I can and mentor young women towards their professional goals. In 2018, my husband and I decided to embark on the VISION 2020 Journey with The Toronto Foundation to thoughtfully create our own source for giving - Theine Foundation.
