Ready for big hearted honesty?

I’m so excited to share my world with you, one filled with a passion for the city I call home, the nutritious food that abounds on my table, the creative energy buzzing through my family, and the drive for growth that fuels my everyday. “Woah!” You might say, “slow down!” Do all these interests seem like a frenzy? Well, you did risk visiting the “About me” page. What can I say?

You’re coming face to screen with a woman who has dabbled in theater, engineering, public speaking, education, ceramics, non-profit management, management consulting, e-commerce, graphic design, music, internet startups, and homemaking – to name a few. If you find that list somewhat dizzying, you’re not alone.

So with such pizzazz-filled English, how is it that I live in Israel? I was born in Bogota, Colombia and moved to Miami, Florida at the age of five. After a romp in New Hampshire at Dartmouth College, I moved to Sydney, Australia to explore an awesome country under the guise that I was working for a management consulting firm. There I finally started to live out my dream of exploring my Jewish tradition.

After a year, it was time to go to the Holy Land to jump deeper into the world of Judaism and its multitude of cultural expressions. Only a few weeks into my stay, it was clear that I was home and would wander no longer in search of a place to plant my feet on the ground. I spent a year in Florida teaching high school English and saving up to move back to Jerusalem. There I met my husband, Dave, who I only had the wits to start dating after we each immigrated to Israel. We soon married and were blessed with our son, Aryeh Lev, who has been the greatest teacher, guidebook, and inspiration of my life.

I’ve dedicated the past two decades to personal growth and development. I’ve devoured books and videos, attended workshops, interviewed experts, and delved deep into the struggles of the soul.

I’ve asked the hard questions about why and how we humans learn and grow best. This has been fueled by the fact that I’ve been an educator for two decades and home-schooled my son. My abounding excitement for learning always seems to spill out, be it in a formal education environment, or in one-on-one interactions with my students or clients.

I invite you to take your own journey of exploration with me. I work with individuals and groups both in-person and over video or phone, guiding them to reveal the peace, joy, and vitality inside them.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!
