Figuring It Out

May 16, 2019

My mom is one of the many strong women I am surrounded by each day who motivates me to be the best I can be, act thoughtfully, and inspires me to be curious. 

She's a strong woman. A friend. A daughter. A sister. A colleague. A chauffeur. A therapist. A chef. And an inspiration.

I couldn’t think of someone more qualified to talk about life, personal growth, raising children, and finding a new purpose when it feels like your biggest job is done.

The unique thing about my mom and something that I admire, is her ability to take risks and reinvent. She’s been in and out of many different career paths, each of which have been influenced by profound life events.  And two years ago, she packed up a UHaul and headed south, to Wilmington, NC to be closer to her happy place...the ocean.

With no friends or clients there to greet her, she started a holistic wellness practice from scratch.

She’s a licensed Massage and Bodywork Therapist, has Advanced Training in Oncology Massage, is a Yoga Teacher, Reiki Master & Occupational Therapy Practitioner

She's taken these credentials deeper to create a unique and meaningful integrative relaxation practice. Her goal is to create a nurturing and supportive place for people to find comfort, to be seen, heard and touched.

I hope you enjoy hearing my mom and I chat and laugh about life, love, loss and so much more, including: 

  • what it was like having children at 23.
  • finding a sense of self and new path at 55.
  • how death and loss manifest in our lives.
  • dealing with depression while raising a family.
  • why she’s not surprised I turned out the way I did.
  • a few things she wished she did differently.
  • ...oh, and her love for nude beaches.
