About Me.

My professional and personal life experiences have placed me in more crises than one can count. Each time a new situation arose, my instinct would kick in, and I'd somehow find my way out -- at the expense of my health & wellness. It wasn't until I applied tried and tested tools & strategies that I experienced true success.
