Independent Wellness Advocate
My mission is to educate, inspire, and empower others so that together we will be the change we wish to see in the world.
I am a passionate Wellness Advocate for doTERRA, and look forward to introducing you to empowered health.
I’ve spent the past 22 years pouring myself into my passion, saving nature’s wildlife and wild spaces, and I’ve loved every second of living my purpose in life. However, while spending well over half my life pouring myself into my purpose, I wasn’t pouring into myself. I was largely neglecting my own health, at times physically, emotionally, and financially, and 2 years ago was my turning point. I had nothing left to pour into my passion. Something had to give. I was spent physically, emotionally, and financially. My relationships were suffering. I was feeling both burdened and like a burden. Essential oils saved me, physically and emotionally, and have now empowered me financially to continue to do what I love, while allowing me to build a business that helps others to be the change. I no longer feel burdened with the task of finding enough funding to fuel my charitable passions; I have transformed my charity into abundant philanthropy. I now use nature for nature.
I have over 20 years of experience in wildlife veterinary medicine, conservation, and issues related to One Health in Africa, and have had the pleasure of working with a variety of domestic and wild animals over the years. I created a charitable organization, Silent Heroes Foundation, in 2010 as a way of contributing to conservation & One Health efforts in Africa. I am a veterinarian, and have a PhD in wildlife epidemiology and virology. I am a board certified Diplomate in the American College of Veterinary Preventive Medicine and the American College of Veterinary Microbiology. I currently teach conservation medicine and related courses at the University of Florida. I am a Certified Meditation Instructor, so that I may assist others in finding their peace, in order to bring peace to all beings. I am certified as a Compassion Fatigue Therapist in order to better assist those in my profession who may be suffering in silence. I am an author with my first book, Conscious Conservation: Less Doing, More Being, available now.
