Tell us a little about yourself. Where are you from? And what is that you do?
I was born in Utah, raised in Alaska and lived in Las Vegas and Los Angeles before moving to New York City. I am a lifestyle expert as well as a mindfulness coach.
What is the relationship between mindfulness and meditation?
Mindfulness is the act of focusing on being in the present moment. It is focusing solely on the moment at hand, being fully aware and taking it in with as many senses as possible. Mindfulness is also a form of meditation. Being mindful of your breath during meditation is a form of mindfulness. Meditation is an umbrella that involves setting aside time for yourself to connect within and letting go. This can come in many different meditation forms- Transcendental Meditation, Buddhist and Kundalini are just a few.

Which spots are the most “mindful”?
If you are traveling, you can make any spot mindful. It just takes a few moments to connect within yourself and be grounded. I live in NYC, which you would think would be one of least mindful places you can find, but surprising not only can you find “mindful” spots, we have a great meditation community.
Is there anything else you’d like to share about the benefits of the “mindfulness”?
Equanimity, reduced anxiety, improved overall well-being, concentration, mood, and emotional self-control. Physically it can lower your blood pressure, lower your heart rate and increase your immune system. Who doesn’t want more of that in their lives?
Can you share some of the highlights in your career? What has been your best moment so far in your professional life?
I have been very blessed to have a huge amount of freedom in my career, which has lead me all over the world, meet so many different people from all walks of life. I think achieving a life balance has been a highlight, as well as being offered opportunities to help others find their Zen.
