(I just have to say, I love my name.)
I was born and raised in the beautiful, rural Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia. My roots there are deeply personal, as I feel my surroundings & family greatly shaped my life. Relationships are the most important thing in my life: I connect with those I love often and in very meaningful ways. (Though let it be known, I am very much a happy introvert!) I love wine, dark chocolate, cookies, yoga, skiing, a good book and my dogs.
Who am I?
I am an Explorer.
- : to look at (something) in a careful way to learn more about it : to study or analyze (something)

My Current Mantra:
Om Namah Shivaya – Energized Tranquility
- Be a role model
- Spend as much time with my family as possible. The more vacations we take together and the more cards we play, the better.
- Explore the country
- one small town,
- one trail,
- one campsite,
- and one bakery at a time!
- Be well-read, listen to music, and create (I have a BFA in Graphic Design)
- Share & teach the joy and healing power of yoga
- Express gratitude in every moment: practicing presence & mindfulness
- Smile more
- Drink more Prosecco
- Go to Mexico (again) to eat!
- Visit Thailand, to eat (duh) and love on some elephants!
- (I achieved this one, y’all and it was unfathomably transformational!)
- Set more fires…campfires oh and fire people up (I can be metaphorical too)
- Ski more mountains (so I became a ski instructor!)
- Love, accept, have faith, be patient
- Be free, be purposeful
- Love animals, be kind to the environment, respect Mother Nature – it’s all we have
- Assume the best in others intentions, release all form of expectation
- Remember to laugh, see the humor in everything
- Own cabin on a lake, in the woods
I am Caroline. And this is my mission:
I am on a soul-serving journey of radical self-acceptance. I am here to be a teacher and facilitator of the only freedom that matters: that which comes from within.
I am all for exploring the light and dark sides of life. For sitting with and accepting the feelings and emotions of life. I am about offering the opportunity to liberate yourself from the self-limiting bullshit that we each internalize, create and believe on our journey to adulthood.
I believe in the conscious creation of wealth, meaning: self-acceptance and self-care for our mental and physical health, the purposeful building of monetary and material wealth, and the creation of healthy, empowered relationships.
Blessings of light and love.
