I found Village as a patient of Dr. Shelby’s. At the time, I was struggling with gut imbalances, a new autoimmune condition, and feeling lost and dis-heartened by the experiences I had in health care throughout my healing process so far. When I connected with Village, I knew I had discovered something very different – a heart-centered practice. A few years later, I feel grateful to now find myself on the other side of the desk, helping to facilitate this unique level of care for others. Within Village, you can find me coordinating group classes, supporting patient care coordination, and helping to coordinate a variety of administrative projects.
Beyond my role here, my life includes creating art of all kinds (singing, songwriting, dancing, poetry, drawing, painting – the list goes on!), connecting with nature on many levels such as hiking, meditating, bird watching, camping, and foraging, as well as growing my own leadership and community building skills through the lenses of mindfulness and decolonization work. I am also in my third year of study with the Sundust Oracle Institute.
