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. It was there that I finally started to live out my dream of living a Torah-observant lifestyle and 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 made Aliyah (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 decade of my life to learning about my people, my neighborhood, my health, and my self. I’ve devoured books and videos, attended workshops, interviewed experts, and delved deep into myself and my roots.

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, founded an educational institution, 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 son, friends, or clients.

I invite you to take this journey with me. I work with individuals, families, and groups in person and over skype or phone, guiding them through Jerusalem, their personal growth, and their wellness.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!
