Oh…you know me already? If that case, go right ahead and send me an e-mail message.

…now back to me.

I coach.

I offer access to and strategies for personal sustainability. The busy, creative soul who endeavors to tap into her healthiest, most vibrant self, and the left-brained woman who excels in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), and wants to create a sense of equilibrium and attention toward a body that looks and feels genuinely well, are both ideal Core Connection Lifestyle clients.

I speak.

I have been sharing in front of group for years. My personal journey to wellness led me to explore and develop my signature approach to mindful living: Take Living Personally™. So I connect my personal journey to my “stage time” as a Mathematics professor, a program manager and wellness educator, to share life essentials for well-being and tools for optimal living.

I dig Science & Mathematics.

Each of us have a Lifestyle Equation that equals clarity + confidence in our bodies and minds. I pull from my experience as a STEM lady + use my critical thinking skills to address and provide solutions to the challenges you’ve had in creating and maintaining optimal health and wellness. I opted against formal “lab time”, but I experiment, tinker, and tweak things until I get a right fit.

I run with scissors.

All this time, I thought I was just being “me” and I found out that others consider me adventurous. I am crafty and MacGyver-isha. I like textiles and patterns. My passport is always on rotation. I take risks, but they are calculated. Seriously. Spreadsheets and all.

I am solar-powered.

I enjoy warm weather and sunshine. I frequent Trinidad and Tobago + Jamaica as much as possible. If you are looking me up to offer me a trip to some beautiful place, I will glad receive it. After 11 years in Washington, DC. I relocated to the Miami/South Florida area. The sun is happy that I’m here.

I really enjoyed how patient and thoughtful Takeyah was during our conversation. She really took her time to get to know me, asking questions about aspects of my life related to my physical, emotional and spiritual health. I particularly loved that she was willing to offer me suggestions of lifestyle changes I could make even in our first conversation. I look forward to working with her in the future.
