What were your initial years of growing up like? Tell us about your life before starting your corporate journey/venture/initiative.
I probably grew up with a similar amount of challenges that any family has. What was unique about my upbringing was that I mainly lived in Maryland near Washington DC with my mother while my father lived in Toronto, Canada. My father came to visit every other weekend so I also grew up living in the Marriott hotel and visiting Canada a lot. I feel like that helped make it easy to travel a lot as an international speaker today.
My siblings and I were taught to get good grades and a great job in fields like medicine, law and engineering. Between the three of us we covered those disciplines. Thus you can imagine the shock when I told my parents I was quitting my job as a Program Manager at Microsoft to travel the world for a year and then became a yoga instructor.
We grew up with the Jewish faith and were put in Jewish day schools. My favorite course was Rabbinics where we studied the Rabbi’s interpretations of the laws. Basically we were taught morals and how to be a good person at a young age.
I also watched Oprah Winfrey regularly with my mother and listened to Eckhart Tolle. When Maya Angelou came on Oprah’s show I fell in love with her. I kept her quote “You’re not in it,” in my packet my entire life reminding me when others have problems it often has nothing to do with me no matter how they act.

While the global pandemic of COVID-19 is associated primarily with adversities, it has also brought about a true boom in startups, with successful entrepreneurship in many countries. The pandemic has impacted all of us in one way or another. Would you like to share your experience on a personal and professional level?
There were three key benefits I experienced from the pandemic:
- Truly experiencing “less is more.” I am a public speaker and without stages I was not sure how to focus my time during the pandemic. My Sit and Succeed program was already online so that kept going as it did before but was not enough to fill my time. I started talking to the mountains and just having fun seeing nature where it was easy to be socially distanced. What I also did during that time was offer free zoom coaching sessions to practice new Neuro-Linguistic Programming techniques I had just learned. To my surprise many of those clients wanted to purchase regular coaching with me and all of a sudden I had a coaching practice! All of this happened while putting out less effort rather than more.
- I enjoy taking ballet classes regularly AND one of my favorite places to take them is New York City. As soon as the studios in New York put their classes online during the pandemic, I started taking them. With moving a 30-60 minute drive from the local dance studios during the pandemic, even with studios opening up again, I am still enjoying the teachers from New York City online instead!
- My family has always been scattered around the world and we all only got to see each other once every few years for a big family event. During the pandemic it occurred to my family to start having regular zoom meetups. Now we get to be closer than ever while still being far apart!
What has been the response of the consumers towards your venture?
Forbes Riley, the ‘$2 Billion Host,’ calls me, “an ideal and much needed healer for today’s world.“
I won the Exceptional Woman of Excellence award from the Women Economic Forum.
My book Healing Happens won awards from TopShelf, Dan Poynter’s Global eBook, and NABE Pinnacle Book Achievement. All those awards and the book being an Amazon best seller despite being held back for my writing inabilities in school!
The biggest compliment is seeing 250 people come to my charity event Valentine Soiree with 100 people who got involved to make it happen!
How has your life changed because of your venture?
My life is absolutely ecstatic to be able to do something I love doing AND it be something that uplifts others.
Would you like to share with our young budding women entrepreneurs the change you would like to see in the world if given an opportunity?
I don’t see my role as the one to decide what change needs to happen in the world. I am here to help people experience more energy, joy and success as they desire to. I do foresee us being even better at seeing the beauty that exists within everyone, supporting and amplifying that. I see us becoming more intuitive, energetically sensitive and socially responsible so that everyone can be understood and experience positive gain.
