About

Hi there!

Yes, I’m a clairsentient and claircognizant Empath, as well as a writer, artist, and musician.  I’m also a HSP (Highly Sensitive Person) and multipotentialite ambivert with ADD and PTSD.  Since re-discovering and truly accepting my Empath abilities, all of my Life’s experiences made sense to me!

I dropped out of college as a young woman, unsure of what to do in Life.  I could never ‘commit’ to any one job.  I’ve dabbled in a variety of jobs over the years (food service and bar industry, veterinary clinics, New Age stores), searching for my true vocation.  Nothing ever felt ‘right’.

I chose to go back to school and complete my B.A. in Speech Communication from SFSU, and in 2010 I also attained my M.A. in Special Education and worked as an Orientation and Mobility Instructor (teaching travel and living skills to the blind and visually impaired community).  However, I had to stop doing this job in 2013, as symptoms were starting to manifest in my body is varying ways, and I was becoming sick–little did I know at the time how much of that was related to my being an Empath!

Allowing myself time to heal and figure out my next direction in life, I started my foray into Life Coaching; conceptualizing and introducing a program (called “Beautiful Bodacious Badass!” http://www.bbbadass.com/) specifically geared to help women to move forward and gain confidence in their lives.  All too soon, however, I realized that this wasn’t quite the fit for me either, as dealing with the larger public and teaching classes was–on many levels–draining to me (this was, again, before my personal ‘awakening’ and understanding of my Empathic ways).
