Welcome to BuddhaInspired – a community dedicated to purposeful living and inspiring infinite possibilities.



Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
― Rumi

The purpose of this site is to share my experiences finding barriers and provide helpful tools to guide others.  Shift your mindset, shift your reality.   My goal is to motivate others to show up and be the best version of themselves they can be.

  • Are you ready to wake up?
  • Are you ready to show up?
  • Are you ready to be inspired and take action?

The tools of meditation, NLP, mindfulness, forgiveness and gratitude are just a few skill sets that will allow you to expand your perception to discover all the hidden talents, beauty and strength and confidence that already lies within you, just like the Golden Buddha.

About Me

What a fun and daunting topic to talk about myself! I have always been most comfortable in the background orchestrating and organizing, although that would shock most people who know and categorize me as outgoing and bold.

Laughing, I say my life is very balanced since I’ve often been at one extreme or the other and when averaged together, it seems to all come out even :-) According to basic American standards, type-A personality would have my picture next to it in the dictionary.  For those who follow Vedic traditions, the Pitta dosha would be my strongest characteristic (What is a dosha?). And yet, much of this mindset and categorization of myself has been left behind as my awareness continues to expand.

prayerposeI have been known to exhibit perfectionist tendencies, just one of my traits as a multi-dimensional being.  Other descriptions include creative, passionate, independent, adventurous, travel connoisseur, logistical goddess and curious, sunny, magnanimous gal.  I’m all of that and more – sometimes a seeming contradiction and that’s okay, too!

Always on the go and yet seemingly ended up nowhere sometimes seemed to be a pattern.  And I was seeking my purpose in all sorts of places (often focused in romantic relationships).  WARNING: Do not try that at home (or anywhere for that matter)!  With exhaustion and just a little fight left in me, I finally stopped to breathe and take a moment to be still and connect.  And voila, that’s when amazing things began to unfold, which has led me to be here right now – where I’m supposed to be.

More About Me

If you’re curious about my background, I am a Southern California native who loves the sun, beach and laid-back west coast vibe.  After living in Cambridge, MA for 5 years working in the online travel and media space, I am now back in California and enjoying all this lifestyle has to offer.

In the past few years, I have been fortunate to participate in some incredible immersion courses and am now certified as a Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) through both the Association for Integrative Psychology and American Board of NLP.

In 2013, I received my Primordial Sound mantra as part of the Chopra Seduction of Spirit event and first met internationally renowned, davidji.  In 2015,  I completed the Masters of Wisdom Meditation Teacher Training course under the guidance and mentorship of davidji.  As a certified teacher, I continue to deepen my practice while constantly learning about and exploring many forms of meditation and mindfulness techniques that provide a gateway to rediscover yourself and reconnect with your true essence.

With a degree in Cognitive Science from UC Berkeley, it is no surprise that I am fascinated with the concepts of philosophy of the mind, neural networks and the Fibonacci sequence, to name a few.

Still curious to know more?  Feel free to ask!  I’d love your feedback on what topics excite you and what else you’d like to know.   Enjoy!!
