my journey

I spent years fueling the success of mega brands trading the majority of my energy for accolades, titles, and big paychecks. I had to squeeze in a social life, training for a endurance races, renovating a home, and cultivating a life with my now husband. At times, it was fast-paced and exciting, but I was living a completely segmented life. When I was working 80 hour weeks, managing a $60 million high profile account, and selling products I didn't believe in, the stress was mounting, I was drowning in overwhelm, and my health was suffering.  I recall the exact moment looking in the mirror and realizing it was draining my soul. I was burnt out. This was my wake up call to make a major shift. So I tossed off the golden handcuffs and jumped off the ladder towards an uncharted path of purpose. 

Along my journey; I've been a 5X founder featured by FORBES "proving that yes, you can build a successful business and earn an income by doing what you love”.  I spent a year traveling the world, acquired over 1000 hours of yoga and mindfulness studies, and led retreats building schools and health clinics in economically challenged communities in third world countries.  One of the ventures I'm most proud of is OKIINO, an athletic apparel company inspired by my active lifestyle as a surfer, water woman, yogi, and triathlete.  OKIINO had quick success with a cult following with water women and won acclaim from Outside, ELLE, SELF, Sunset, Yoga Journal, LA Times, SF Chronicle, Wired and beyond.

Today I am founder and coach at Savvyself, a manifestation of all of my passions and gifts. I support others through coaching and many workshops and retreats. I am also a Mentor In Residence + Adjunct Lecturer of Entrepreneurship at University of Arizona, and help start ups as a Partner at 05 Advisors.  I serve as a Co-Founder of the growing Sunset Women's Collective manifesting group and board member for two nonprofits. This is the work I'm meant to do in the world and I'm so grateful for the opportunity.

Recently we manifested a move to our dream location, Hawaii. I spend my days working on inspiring projects, cultivating community, raising my 7 year old son, Tanner, and surfing with my husband, John. 

 

My greatest hope is to elevate others to elevate others in a ripple effect.

I've had many successes and failures along the journey. Fulfillment is a practice, not a destination. My mission is to help you master your mindset and manifest the life you truly love.
