What do you love to do with your children? How old are they? And what is your greatest wish for them?
I have 2 girls, ages 15 and 25. Time spent with each of them is very different based on their age and personality differences.
With my 15 year old, it’s all about her friends right now, but when we do hang out shopping or whatever, we have great conversations. She’s quite open with me and I love what she has to share, including her music playlist.
My 25 year old lives in Chile. We text and FaceTime a lot to stay in close touch. When she’s in town twice a year we love to cook, exercise, shop and explore new restaurants together. We enjoy sipping good wines and talking about anything and everything. She inspires me to no end and I feel it’s mutual.
My greatest wish for my girls is that they continue to develop a strong sense of self-worth. I want them to realize that there are no two people alike so there’s no need to compare or compete with another. We all have unique gifts and talents to share, so I want them to feel confident to be fully expressed as individuals.
When and where are you the happiest?
I’m the happiest when I’m in the creative process whether I’m formulating essential oil blends and custom herbal teas, making jewelry, or simply getting dressed in the morning. That’s when I feel focused and totally present.
Feeling appreciative for my life brings me to a very high state of connectivity to the Universe.
Where I‘m most happy is out in nature. I particularly love being surrounded by water or being in a densely populated forest.
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I have traveled a lot in my life, but currently I’m honing in on Hawaii.
Who has had the biggest influence upon you? And what quality do you most admire in a mother?
I have had many great teachers in my life, but my Dad really stands out. Our relationship was challenging, yet taught me to call back the power of self-love. One of his favorite mantras was “if you can’t have fun doing it don’t bother.” I used to equate that with being irresponsible, but now I believe it’s a better response to lighten up and have fun.
Compassionate love is what I most admire as a mothering quality.
What do you like to do for fun?
I like to try new ways to do the everyday routine. When I mix it up I get a different outcome that makes life more interesting. I love to be playful with my family, friends and pets. I also enjoy great cuisine and exploring new restaurants.
What is one of your favorite books? Movies?
A book I find amazing and revisit a lot is The Untethered Soul, by Michael Singer. I’ve been revisiting Robin Williams’ films and one of my favorites is “Dead Poets Society.”
What do you feel is one of your strongest qualities?
I’m a very accepting person who allows people to be who they are. I love to teach and inspire others with what I know and give praise when it’s called for. I trust my intuition.
What is your favorite type of food and what do you love to cook?
French cuisine is my favorite. I love to cook what’s in season incorporating a lot of fresh or dried herbs. I cook best when I wing it with a little of this and that.
What is your favorite time of the day and why?
I love early morning when everything seems still and peaceful. I enjoy starting the day with something that can set the tone of my day. Sometimes I read, write or drum. Many days I do a tarot reading, which is something I continue to study.
Where is your favorite place to Party with Moms and what’s your favorite drink?
I love to meet up at Barcelona for their social hour from 4 to 7. Besides great wine I like Harvest Vodka with fresh lemon and a splash of St-Germain.
