 Mom, entrepreneur , Doula , healer, and a part of the community.


Since I can remember I have always been an active member of my community always submerged in neighborhood activities. It was not until after I became a mom I started to  appreciate my "ME Time"  rituals. It's something about  someone else's life consuming your own, that makes you think about your own self care . I began small. Taking "ME"  time at my son's nap time instead of cleaning for that day. I then began to research ,learn, create  and implement other self-care routines. I learned about creating my own safe space. I gravitated to bath rituals and burning sage and trying new things often. That is how I began to create and sell products that can help others to create their own self-care routines.
