Creator, doctor, kitty's favorite human, wife, mother, daughter, friend, visionary, fun-and food-loving, travel bug jet setter, lifelong student, voracious reader, curious cat.

As a multifaceted physician with over a decade of experience in Internal Medicine and Palliative Care, I've seen it all - the triumphs, tantrums, and tearful moments that define our human existence. Throughout this journey, I've had the unparalleled privilege of accompanying people as they traverse the undulating terrain of life's twilight.

Other than the doctor hat, I also wear those of a doting mother, loving wife, amateur cat-whisperer, globetrotting adventurer, foodie, and tea enthusiast! I'm also training as Health Coach at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition so our journey together will soon include additional content to enrich your journey!

So rest assured, we're going to dive deep into the complexities and hilarities of life's later stages with all the wit, warmth, and wisdom we can muster. So grab your cup of tea (or whatever it is you love) and let's embark on this voyage of discovery together!

Living a life of meaning into middle and later years, we take a design and health coaching approach to help empower you to live your best life and feel invigorated and fresh no matter what your age.


Empathy: We approach everyone’s story with empathy and caring, recognizing that your story and your life is unique like no one else’s.

Compassion: Showing compassion towards yourself is your first step in living your best life. Be kind and forgiving towards yourself. Remember that ‘good enough’ are powerful words.

Support: We are here to support you every step of the way as you advance in life and years. Be it discovering your vitality through finding your best lifestyle that represents you, or be it through fully embracing your story with all the treasures and magical moments you have lived, our goal is to celebrate you.

Collaboration: No one operates well in a vacuum. We are social creatures, even if you prefer to surround yourself with very few people. We are here to help you discover your own strengths and tap into your own inherent wisdom. You are the expert on  your own life.

Empowerment: Our goal is to empower you to turn all your treasures and wisdom into the courage to transform yourself in all aspects of life to be at your personal best.

By 2060, we will have approximately 70 million people who are over the age of 65 in the US → that is slightly more than the current population of France


By 2060, life expectancy is estimated to be around 80 from 70 (although some recent estimates actually lowered the US life expectancy)


Did you know that storytelling is used in end-of-life care to help people leave a legacy document? In that context, it is called ‘dignity therapy’ and is one aspect of how to celebrate someone’s life story.
