Does everyone tell you that you're doing too much?
Yeah, me too. I can’t help myself. I’m passionate. When we’re multi-passionate, we have to be careful not to burn out so we can keep making out magic and mischief in the world.
I used to wonder why I couldn’t just specialize in one thing like other people. Turns out, nothing was wrong with me. I am a free spirited ENFP who ended up in the sciences because of my curiosity about the human body. I wasn’t supposed to blend in, I’m meant to bring things together.
My style is all about multi-tasking self-care in unconventional ways to maximize your precious time and energy.

As cool as I make Type 1 Diabetes look, I'm sure you don't want any type of it.
One of my many missions is to get more movement in your life by swapping out fads for sustainable fitness practices.
Getting more movement in your day helps reduce your risk for Type 2 Diabetes, insulin resistance, heart disease, and more. Even if you’re not a person who checks their blood sugar, a benefit of exercise is that it increases insulin sensitivity. Let’s heal your love-hate relationship with fitness, and eventually, your body. Living a physically active life is simpler than most 30 minute workouts, anyways.
I'm alive because of science, but magic and mischief are what make life worth living.
True self-care is more than a bubble bath, but a bath is always a good place to start brainstorming other options. Self-care can reduce stress, insulin resistance, cortisol, and burnout while serving up a boost of endorphins.
Putting on some music and dancing is the best way to work out emotions. Sometimes it’s the only way to identify them. Unstructured dance breaks, car dance parties, pole, swing, reggaetón, merengue, bachata and salsa are my favorites. It’s fun, pleasurable, and playful moments with amazing music that makes life magical.
To take care of yourself well, you need to understand yourself.
I’m an empath, ENFP, Enneagram 4, Aries Sun, Pisces Moon, and Cancer Rising. Clinically and emotionally, I give myself permission to not operate the way “normal” people do. I’ve survived so much in my past and am recovering by rewriting my patterns one day at a time. I’m not alone. You are not alone.
I'd love to be your guide in finding what works for your health.
Your needs are different from those around you. You have permission to move through the world and care for yourself how you need to. Here are some resources to get you started.
