A Bit About Me
I'm a biological science/health teacher, certified health & wellness coach, Qigong practitioner & instructor and beauty & wellness entrepreneur.
What I Do
Using the 6 pillars of self-care™ and Qigong, I support clients to optimize their wellness. They learn to reclaim their body’s homeostasis live more meaningful lives from the inside out.
My mission is to educate, inspire those who are ready to live beautifully from the inside out.
I began my career as a biological science and chemistry teacher at the NYC Department of Education. In 2012, I resigned from my school teaching career and had myself an Eat, Pray, Love moment, embarking on a self-care sabbatical in search of my true passion: supporting myself and others to live and enjoy healthier lives.
The result of my sabbatical is my current business, Inside Outer Beauty Market, a multi-ethnic, e-commerce and brick & mortar retailer that curates toxicant free beauty, wellness, personal care and household care products to support the body inside and out.
As a beauty entrepreneur, my work also includes advocacy for equality, equity, diversity and inclusivity. Most recently, I partnered with Senator Dianne Feinstein to support the Personal Care Product Safety Act, which aims to create more regulation in the beauty space and accountability by manufactures regarding ingredient and efficacy claims.
My work has been featured in publications such as SElF, Oprah, WFMZ 69 News, Yahoo Lifestyle, Blavity, Essence Online, Daily Mail, Beauty Independent, Working Mother, Bella Magazine and many more.
My education includes a BSc in Biological science with a minor in chemistry and an Msed in teaching and learning. I also hold certificates in health and wellness from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and the London School of Naturopathic Medicine in the U.K. As an associate Qigong flow practitioner, I utilize energy works to help others harmonize their breath, body and mind.
Over the years, I’ve been awarded numerous awards for my outstanding performance and contributions as a biological science educator. Other awards include city council citations from the City of New York and New York Stae Assembly certificates of Merit for exemplary service in the community.
