After graduating from University I heard the world map calling my name. The next thing where temple bells ringing in Asia. Spending one year backpacking into areas that had never been visited by tourists, the world opened for me. The longer I spent away from all that I had known, the deeper I found myself discovering Self. The further I traveled the more absorbed I became in others cultures customs and methods. After one year I returned home and on the plane I remember there was a flash of clarity that summed my experience into three objectives for my future. To learn to live sustainably, find Self, and to learn how to heal others through an alternative medicine practice.
This journey has taken me fifteen years and is still ongoing. I have worked many seasons on sustainable farms in many different countries. I became a certified Yoga Instructor by way of Satchidanada, and Desikachar, which included all 8 limbs of Yoga, gifting me with knowledge of Self. I was then certified as an Ayurvedic Consultant and western herbalist so that I could then help other heal. All of these tools led me to a Day Spa in New York, Pratima. I started as a therapists, which led me to administering the herbs that Pratima was giving during her consultations. After years, I was not only running the spa but had re-branded and created 20% more revenue. My passion took me even further, I was asked to go to Mexico and open a sanctuary spa in a hotel in the Riviera Maya. This was my first project with Orient Express Hotels. After years of working for them I became their corporate Director of Development for Spas. I traveled around the world creating concepts and spas. After all this travel my health began to falter so I took it as an opportunity and opened my own business, Shree, which helped product lines to enter into the Spa market. Years later I felt the craving of team spirit and decided to go back to Spa Management at the Spa at Four Seasons Hong Kong.
