I am a life coach and facilitator who currently does contract work for the UVIC currently. My NEW venture is The Haven at Deer Park, a custom event ‘venue’ located on Tronson Road here in Vernon. I stumbled upon this property several years ago, at which time it had already been vacant and up for sale for several years. The building housed the restaurant formerly known as Deer Park Restaurant. There was also a two-lane bowling alley on the second floor of the building! My husband and I negotiated on the property two separate times and finally on May 24, 2017, we took possession. That was the beginning of a massive clean up of the property (also referred to as a labor of love!)

I was 30 lbs overweight, with multiple autoimmune diseases and absolutely no energy and no purpose. I could only walk the dog for 10 minutes before having to lie down for 2 hours. Managing my energy was like a military operation. After being referred to a specialist (endocrinologist) and 6 months of doing every possible test he said to me, “You are 1 of the 4 people in the world that I don’t know what is wrong with, and there is nothing more I can do for you.” Out of desperation I found EFT (which stands for Emotional Freedom Technique) or more it’s more common name “Tapping” and Matrix Reimprinting.
I am now 30lbs lighter, getting healthier every day and feeling on fire. I have discovered the art of crap (limiting beliefs) detection and transformation, which started with unearthing my own that I didn’t even know was there (hint: subconscious –sub meaning below awareness).
I now teach courageous people who want to transform their lives how to “Tap Their Crap”, to reprogram their subconscious mind and start living a life they love!
