Hey, so you must have googled my name for some reason, what are you a stalker? JK! Maybe you heard about me through Happivize.com or one of my books and are trying to find out a little bit more about me.
There’s not a ton more to share past what’s on the Happivize.com about page.
If you haven’t visited that site, it’s my favorite. I was in the shower when it came to me that we needed an Amazon for energy healing. I had already been working with energy healers and interviewing them, but unless you happened to catch the live podcast, you were out of luck. So now I’m growing Happivize so that whenever you need a healing pick me up, or help with a specific issue, or just kind of want to see what’s out there, you can find what you need when you need it.
Before that, I worked as an EFT Practitioner with private clients. LOVE love love EFT.
Before THAT, I was mainly focused on traveling or saving money to travel. Lived in California for about 10 years total (Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Santa Monica, Manhattan Beach, Studio City) and Brooklyn Heights.
I left when I was 25 for my first big trip and was gone 2 1/2 years – New Zealand, Australia, Thailand, Laos, China, Vietnam (with a few weeks in the South Pacific). Highlights of that trip, New Zealand 9 months, one of my top 3 favorite countries.
Then came back to the States and lived in NYC. Moved to LA. Left again for a year overland Mexico, Central America, South America. Learned Spanish in Guatemala (great place to learn btw, you stay with families and get 4 hrs private tuition very inexpensively, I preferred Xela). Argentina another top 3 country.
Came back, left again for Nepal, Everest Base Camp! Six months in India (last of the top 3 favs). Middle East and Europe. Those are my three LONG trips.
Total is over 60 countries at this time of writing, with many more on the list. Latest favorite was Botswana, had been wanting to go since I was 19 and it exceeded expectations.
Now I have Columbus as my home base (I was born here and left when I was 18 – my family still here), but I am doing a lot of road tripping with my sweet dog, Daisy (pit/boxer/bulldog according to her DNA but a petite 40lbs). Might get one of those super kitted out conversion vans.
What else, love tennis to play (not very good but love it) and to watch – my cliche favorites Fed and Serena – but how can they not be?
That’s a pretty short summation for one’s life!
I’ll leave you with a few of my favorite photos from my travels.
