ABOUT

Work It Own It is all about working through life’s struggles, as you work towards your dreams & own it every step of the way.

Work It Own It is more than a blog, it’s a way of life. I used to live my life thinking I had to please people. I played it small to avoid conflict, and settled for practicality. And damn, was I miserable. I took a backseat on life, and completely lost myself.

One day I finally realized I needed to get my spark back.

Once I had this awakening, there was no going back. I stepped into the fear. I left a toxic relationship, a dead-end job, and a life that was completely out of line with my purpose.

My journey since then has lead me to exploring my creativity and passions, and how I can use them to help others find their authentic voices and live their dreams out loud. Through my work in yoga, social media and other creative mediums, I hope to inspire people to believe that we are the creators of our own story.
