"Wholistic and integrated healthcare reveals that as a person we have many systems and layers that are interconnected, and that health and wellness is a dynamic interplay between all of our moving parts. My personal mission is to move beyond my conditioned and limiting beliefs about myself and others into a state of freedom and compassion, allowing me to adopt new perspectives and ways to care for myself, and in turn, to care for those around me and for my community at large."
