At a young age, she felt drawn to go inwards seeking insight into life’s great questions. For two years she practiced and studied daily with great discipline and devotion alongside her teachers and mentors. Following her dream of adventure and living a more simple life in deep connection with nature, she moved to Costa Rica and developed a strong self-practice.
