My travels guided me towards a deeper understanding of my life and more importantly, this brought forth in me an authentic expression of who I am. I discovered my innate talent and passion for architecture & interior design. The unique combination of my 10 years in business management, my passion for wellness added to the years I cultivated my inner talent and hands on expeirnece in architecture has lead me to where I am today, leading my own international Spa Development Consulting company.”
