There are a number of ways that you can work with me, either through individual consultation or the Smart Life Project - a global community with the shared vision of Living A Smart Life and Competent Self Care.
My interest is in teaching individuals and groups how these principles apply to their health, their training, and their day-to-day lives to foster growth and personal transformation. My approach is high on education, consumerism, and a degree of activism when needed!
