My Power 9
My Power 9® are Purpose + Right Tribe. Having a clear connection to my purpose and living intentionally is an important part of my daily happiness. A career that strengthens my bond to my purpose while encouraging others to dive deep into theirs is very fulfilling for me. Sharing my passions with the people I spend time with is critical in finding meaning and a deeper connection to my tribe. By surrounding myself with like-minded, compassionate, and centered individuals, I feel a renewed sense of energy to tackle life’s ups and downs.Return to Our Community

My Power 9
My favorite Power 9® principles are: Right Tribe and Move Naturally. The people I choose to spend my time with impact my outlook on life. My favorite group of friends, MY TRIBE, or my MOAI, move naturally with me in nature. This is our grounding and bonding time. From walking/hiking to biking and kayaking and even glamping, we find peace in being outside in nature, moving naturally.Return to Our Community
