Like so many people, things were not always “easy” or “rosy” in my world…
My Early Years
I was born and raised in North York Ontario to immigrant parents who came to Canada with the hopes of providing a better life for their children. I watched my mother and father make many sacrifices, including not being able to spend quality loving time as a couple, due to among other things, lack of resources, and their working opposite schedules. The consequences of that lead to some serious issues and challenges in their relationship, that without the right resources were difficult to overcome. I myself as a child didn’t have the tools or life skills to understand and handle what was happening around me, and so without evening knowing it, I created my own life of chaos.
Once considered a top-notch student with tons of potential, my grades dropped and I started to associate with similar “troubled” kids. It went down hill from there pretty fast and before I knew it – I left home at the age of 16, met my first “love” at 17 – became pregnant at 18 – I then spent the next five years running and hiding from the physically abusive relationship. I was alone with a young baby, a high school drop out and unable to go back home in fear that I would put my family members at risk. How could something like this happen to a fun spirited, enthusiastic lover of life and people? Well, it did, and it still does to far too many this very day.
Thankfully my true inner strength, power and core values shone through the dark times and I was able to pick myself up and carry on forward. I went back to school part time, worked part time and slowly but surely got my life back in order (Well sort of…)
Fast-forward 12 years later, I happily embarked in a high energy career in the Broadcasting Industry and worked my way up to being the Head of Programming for three digital channels. I loved my work, was fortunate to help build and work with some of the best team members in the industry, and by this time was re-married and had four amazing children. But to my surprise, this wasn’t meant to be my final career. In 2008 and 2009 markets around the world were in crisis mode, and the work environment became riddled with stress and fear. As Head of Programming, many of the “bucks” stopped with me, and I felt like I had more questions than answers. My team looked up to me for support and guidance, and yet I was experiencing just as many hopeless and powerless moments as they were. The extent of the stress made no sense to me, but it was very real. I began my own exploration and started taking some courses. I was feeling pretty desperate to get some additional training and education; I was on a mission to figure out how I could help to make things better. It was then that I fell in love with the Professional Coaching, Personal Empowerment and Wellness Industries. I began to use these new tools, resources and skills for myself; in my business life (and my family life) They worked!
A Life Transforming Decision
After a few years of taking courses, trainings and implementing what I was learning into my business and personal life, my career took a very different turn. After a painful ‘thinking break’ I decided to leave my almost 12 year career. It wasn’t an easy decision to make. I loved my work and my team. I was at the top of my game earning a good income. But there were serious issues that challenged my integrity and values, things that I wasn’t able to change… and so I made the painful decision to leave. It was a difficult and stressful time, but from that dark time, my brightest light began to shine.
After a few years of running my own practice I realized that I still wasn’t following my true purpose. I had more soul (and purpose) searching to do. This realization was as inspiring as it was empowering and lead to the birth of TruBliss.
TruBliss is a very special place where people can come and learn how to relax, how to unwind, how to practice self-care. How to enjoy Inner Wellness + Outer Beauty and learn how to find and follow their own trubliss.
Currently, a tremendous gap exists between the Medical Industry and the Wellness Industry. TruBliss will help bridge that gap and empower people to learn and practice what makes them feel great and fabulous on the inside and outside. Even in the midst of a busy schedule, I’m confident that we can help you find your way to your own TruBliss.
My Life’s Mission
Since 2008 I’ve been searching for ways to bring my own personal vision of helping to empower people to the public. Having now connected with and helped (first and foremost myself), and then of course the client’s that I’ve been so honoured and privileged to work with, I believe that Trubliss will help people in many areas of their Inner Wellness and Outer Beauty goals. My life’s mission is to share these incredible services, products, insights and inspirations with as many as we can so we live a happier, healthier and more successful life, and thereby make the world a better place for ourselves, our children and families. And, although I’m still and will always be a work in progress, I strive each day to live by the values and principles I share with others. That’s my promise to you.
I wish you happiness, great health and trubliss in every area of your life.
