20 years ago, I left the comfort and familiarity of my life within the borders of the Czech Republic to simply get out there and explore. After the seasons of growing up under communism, graduating from Pedagogical college, and feeling restricted by the authority figures, I strongly desired to experience a true sense of freedom. The plan was to spend only one year abroad, but life has its own way, so I ended up living and starting from scratch in three different countries: England, Ireland, and Canada, which has been my base camp since 2009.
About 15 years into living overseas, and learning how to be an excellent employee (mostly in the hospitality industry), I reached a point where I felt trapped in the comfort zone that I created for myself. I felt like I stopped expanding and it really dawned on me that life is too short to spend it living someone else’s dream. I also knew that ignoring my heart’s calling because of my limiting fears, would definitely be one of those things that I’d regret on my death bed. And so I grabbed all of my courage and jumped into the unfamiliar to do my own thing as a holistic nutritionist. Partially, because I’ve always felt passionate about all-things-nutrition. And partially, because I managed to clear my excruciating PMS with this approach, and I wanted to share my knowledge with others to help them – help themselves too.
Now, I enjoy living with the clarity about what’s important and non-negotiable, and I strive to make daily course corrections to make sure that my life’s journey is aligned with my deepest desires and highest values. As a woman, sister, daughter, niece, soul-mate…, I’m proactive about keeping my physical, emotional, and spiritual tanks topped up so that I can show up as my most joyous self, and be there for those I care about. As a holistic nutritionist, I make it my daily business to help my clients elevate their nutrition so that they can chase their dreams with vigor in all of the facets of their lives!
