Why did you choose to go into your particular field of medicine/healthcare?
My own health journey of being burned out and having had anxiety as a teenager led me to study to become a Health and Life coach, so I can help others who are going through a similar situation to overcome and heal from it for good.
I believe that when we are misaligned with our soul, we can manifest mental health diseases.
My approach I am teaching young adults is to reconnect with their soul through art. I truly believe that art is healing and combining this with my health coaching experiences is beneficial for everyone who is looking for a way out of mental diseases.

Where have you been?
I currently live in Australia.

Your views on health in your own home?
Our body is telling us what needs to be healed internally and emotionally. If we are connected with our body, mind and soul, we can heal.
Mother Nature has very effective ways of healing our bodies.
My mother and grandma were used to find herbs for healing rather than medication wherever possible.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
To trust my intuition.
If you could stay home with a cup of coffee three days a week and research any area of health that pertains to your occupation, what would it be and why?
I would research more about how intuitive art can heal us and help us to realign with our soul.
Art and being creative helped me to overcome my health issues and were a crucial part of me figuring out who I am.
Favorite place to be?
At the beach.
