About Me

I am a wellness writer and book editor by day and a wellness fanatic by…well, day and night. I moved from New York to Philadelphia to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where I immediately got hired at Ten Thousand Waves, a world-renowned Japanese spa. I no longer work there, but I continue to immerse myself in all things spa. A new moisturizer on the market? Got it. A hair treatment? Got that too. I’ve been kneaded, scrubbed, hot-stoned, and facialized (I can make up words…I’m an editor, remember?)

In 2012, I took my first meditation course, which was at the Chopra Center in California. This would put me on a trajectory of immersive study in areas of spirituality and wellness. In 2016, I became a student at the Vedic Chant Center in Santa Fe, where I learned Vedanta (the Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads) and Sanskrit. In 2017, I became a certified meditation teacher through the Chopra Center. For the next few years, I studied Ayurveda at the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where I earned a certificate in Ayurvedic Healing, and in the Principles of Pranayama. In 2021, I became a Certified Practitioner in the Law of Attraction and then a Master Practitioner. I am currently earning my certification in the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), or “tapping.”

When I’m not busy helping authors make their books, websites, or documents shine—did I mention I’m the owner of www.TheWriteEdit.com?—I’m probably looking for an exciting spa vacation, a new course to expand my knowledge, or a way to help someone through the use of the Law of Attraction or EFT.

Through my studies, I have learned that each wellness practice has merit. EFT is an effective, quick way to calm the nerves and lower stress instantly, for example. The Law of Attraction is a lifestyle that reprograms one’s thinking for better outcomes. Meditation has a wealth of benefits across a broad spectrum. As a writer, my passion is to spread awareness of the various ways to keep us happier and healthier.

Some of my posts are product reviews. As a disclosure, some companies do offer me samples of their product, for this purpose. This in no way influences my professional opinion about their product. Reviews are 100% my own content and are written completely without bias.
