Stress Relief Expert

Hi and Welcome to Heart-Centered Life!

As the Founder and Chief Positivity Officer of  Heart-Centered Programs, my motto is to ‘Empower People to live and work with more  Passion, Purpose and Play’™!

Having worked with thousands of business people and individuals all over the United States, I know what keeps you up at night. What stresses you. What creates anxiety. What kind of life you’d rather be living!

I know … because I was there!

I had a high-stress position in a technology company filled with untenable quotas and impossible expectations. I was commuting two-hours each way to an office, and then had my second fulltime job (Parent) after work. I was overwhelmed and exhausted. And it started to impact my performance.

Then 911 hit. Like the rest of the world – I was in shock and in ‘freeze’ mode. The ‘new normal’ of living in fear and anxiety only added to my already stressful life and it was only a matter of time before my life imploded.

Fast forward to 2020, and we’re all living in one of the most anxious and stressful periods in history, between the COVID-19 Pandemic, social unrest, and climate change.

Stay@Home, Work@Home, Kids@Home is now the ‘New Normal’.

I know what’s it’s like to transition to working from home and trying to take care of your kids while trying to meet deadlines and quotas. Trying to create healthy boundaries and productive routines. I was there once and all this trying is very …


And it takes its’ toll on our health and well-being. Had I not decided to leave my previous job, I probably would have be fired for not meeting my quota! Or worse – end up in the hospital with stress-induced diabetes, like a colleague of mine!

So, instead of looking for another High-Stress job, I made the decision to start my own business and help others better manage their stress.

That’s how Heart-Centered Programs was born!

I am passionate about creating positive and healthy change and delivering stress management solutions. I believe it’s never too late to create healthier habits and live the life you’ve always wanted.
