You aren't just a visitor or follower, you are a friend. So lean in, let me tell you a little about myself. 

Soul Connect began with my own journey of discovering who I am and what I want (or what I now call soul connection). I spent so many years of my life striving for perfectionism, lacking self awareness, and not loving the skin I'm in.  I struggled with female friendships and craved to feel accepted but never really felt like I fit in. You know, those pretty common human feelings you have while trying to navigate this whole life thing.   

As I moved through college and graduate school, I sensed my purpose was to serve and connect, but I gave my fears way too much power and continued to feel out of place and unsettled.  I couldn’t really pinpoint what I wanted but I knew it was there, waiting for me to discover it. I was craving to be seen, heard, and unleash this unwavering knowing that I was meant for something bigger than where I was.

Once I gave myself permission to not have my sh*t together, a gateway of possibility opened. I was able to get clear on what I wanted and started taking steps to make it come alive.  I saw the same need in other women who craved authentic connection, women who also wanted to nd their truth while having a community to lean on. So I started a movement.

I am fiercely dedicated to creating space for you to be YOU.  I believe that you belong, I belong {Right Now} Not later or someday, but right now. I believe we can embrace that reality through the power of eye contact and me too's.  Nothing lights me up more than witnessing women come alive to their power, sharing me too's + see the magic that's sparks when women support women.

I choose hugs over handshakes, I don't do weather talk, I am always in the work and I most definitely laugh at my own jokes. I am on a mission to inspire each woman on her own path to becoming the most badass authentic version of herself all while creating a soul centered community to uplift each other along the way.  I don't just believe in this mission, I live it out loud.

The full story...

For as long as I can remember, I have always known that my life’s purpose is to serve + to connect. But there was always one thing getting in my way….

A few years ago, I began to feel a shift.

It started off as a faint whisper and evolved into a deafening blare.  At the time, I didn’t really know what it was but I knew I had to start to follow where that very visceral feeling was being generated within me.  I thought it was my job, maybe I needed to move to a new city or state. Despite my lack of clarity, uncertainty and a hella amount of fear, I started to explore this unwavering sense that something in my life was meant to change-that I was meant for something more.

I began slowly.

I started listening to my body and practicing yoga to help me get out of my head and into my heart. I began connecting with like-minded people, I read ferociously, journaled daily, tried different meditations and classes and sought out inspiring coaches and teachers.  All of the things I thought I should do to get the answers I needed.

During this time, I started to feel myself expand as I began to honor this feeling of unsettledness within me rather than ignoring it.  For once I was listening to myself and becoming more aware of my thoughts, feelings and desires. But I wasn’t there yet, there was still something missing.

Soon that faint whisper turned into a siren that could not be ignored. That siren was quite literally my phone ringing.  I picked up the phone and on the other end of that line, a very important person in my life told me something that became the catalyst for me to create a life altering shift.

He told me that no one can give me permission but myself.  That I cannot wait another minute. That I must give myself permission and continue to do so every day after.

A seemingly ordinary call turned extraordinary because that is the moment I looked my fear, doubt and own bullshit in the eye and gave myself permission to begin again.  After that conversation, something shifted within me. That is when I realized that the one thing getting in my way, was ME.

I didn't know where I was going or what I was doing but what I did know was that I could no longer play small.  I knew that if I waited a second longer, I would be waiting my whole life. And thank goddess I didn't wait because the moment I gave myself permission to begin was the moment I stepped into an adventure that has led me to this very moment.

When I look back at my life, I now realize how much power I gave my fear.  Growing up I had a really hard time making and keeping friends, especially with girls.  I was shy, unsure of myself, and I never felt like I fit in. I just wanted to feel like I belonged. I craved to be myself without conditions, to be accepted by others so that I could start accepting myself. When I think back to the years I was consumed with doubt + striving for perfect, I can remember that it was a lot of work and frankly, super f*cking exhausting. Yet I clung tightly to the struggle because I was too afraid to see what would happened if I let go.

Soul connection is the practice of getting clear on who we are and what we want and living in alignment. It is a practice of letting in in order to let go. It is engaging in experiences that call on us to cultivate courage in order to build resilience. It is about writing permission slips over and over again until we show up unapologetically. It is about showing up, being seen + loving yourself unconditionally.

Since then, the most beautiful + amazing series of events have occurred that catapulted me to where I am right now:  living life on my own terms, showing up authentically, being surrounded + uplifted by AMAZING humans, and harnessing my personal power to serve the world. I am a forever student of life and will always be a work in progress- always evolving, always embracing my humanness.

My gratitude is boundless for the people, moments, experiences and lessons I have learned. And especially for that unsettledness that was harbored within me, causing the rumble, calling me to shine. It all began with a permission slip to get real and start before I was ready.
