"My personal mission is to move beyond my conditioned beliefs about myself into a state of freedom and compassion. I see this as being the foundation to health and wellness, regardless of how my physical body presents itself. The understanding of wholistic and integrated healthcare reveals the possibility that we are an interconnected whole person and health is an interplay between all of our moving parts. Wholeness does not require me to have a perfect body, but it does require me to become aware of my limiting thoughts and beliefs and adapt new perspectives and ways to care for myself, and in turn, for those around me and my community at large.
This freedom that I seek for myself is the driving force in whatever I do in the world and it is the core value I have to offer in any exchange. Your freedom is just as important to me as my own and where ever and how ever I can show up to be a part of that is where I'll be."
