For most of my life, I found my meaning in work, chasing accomplishments as a scientist, then as a speaker, educator, and writer. All the while, I did everything I could to avoid emotional pain until I had no choice but to look inward.
When I finally let my pain speak to me, greater courage stirred—first as a faint murmur, a subtle nudge that suggested there might be more to my capabilities than I realized.
That is what I want for you.
The Bombay Review
The Healing Muse
Take the first step into the depths
where your freedom awaits.
That is the path you need to take,
that is where the journey begins.
Just as I used to log observations about my scientific experiments, each poetry collection represents observations of my inner world and a stage in my healing journey. By drawing from science, education, and nature, you’re invited to observe your own “inner laboratory” and face life’s challenges.
Keynote Speaking bookings are currently paused. In the meantime, get in touch about media requests, podcast interviews, or reading events.
Using evidence-based research on progress, poetic storytelling, and lived experiences, I teach others how to find beauty in adversity. The ultimate goal? Encourage audiences to get acquainted with their inner worlds so they can find more balance and fulfillment in life. Book me for your event and together, we’ll ignite discussions that reshape perspectives and unleash inner strength.
