In 2008 things were tough. I felt depressed about my life. I felt numb, emotionally dead, and disconnected from life itself. I was deeply unhappy.
I was in a corporate job that was toxic. I was a woman in a man’s world, and I had a hard time fitting in. In order to be accepted, I became one of the boy’s, and lost my female identity. I believed that if I was feminine, I wouldn’t have fit in. This was painful, although at the time I couldn’t even feel the pain.
I hit rock bottom. I was overweight, unhealthy, and my mom had just tried to commit suicide. Not only was I in a corporate job that I hated, but I was also abusing alcohol. It was a dark time. I knew I had to make a change. And I felt a calling to start looking at my life and move through the pain.
I had my first few experiences with transformational work, and my life began to turn around. My network of supportive friends and colleagues began to grow, and I could feel changes happening within myself.
My healing journey led me to climb Mount Kilimanjaro! On that climb, I was introduced to a man who sparked an idea for me, that would help me create community for myself and other transformational leaders to heal and step further into their power.
