Words are a lens to focus one’s mind.
– Ayn Rand
…Also known as Elie by friends and family. I wear a few hats - wife, coworker, writer, dog-mom, student - and together they encompass most of my everyday life. As a creative, I put my all into my work, whether its sharing life struggles in a blog post, painting with acrylics, or researching a paper. I take lessons learned through personal experience to craft content with an intention to deeply impact at least one person. At the same time, my education and background in government and trade helped me realize the important of connectivity, communication and transparency. I love to write about politics just as much as yoga and mindfulness!
Behind the Blog
I strive to live an intentional, mindful lifestyle. I have found that practicing mindfulness has brought peace in my own life and to my mind. As a young woman who has struggled with depression and anxiety for over a decade, I can attest to the truth of an intentional, spiritual lifestyle and its positive impacts on my health and well-being.
