About Me

As the former founder and executive director of a nonprofit in New York City and a former educator, I wished I had known about these strategies. I struggled to juggle raising funds, overseeing operations, managing programs, building, managing, and engaging my board of directors, and meeting the needs of my team. All of this left me with very little energy to focus on myself and my family, leaving me feeling unfulfilled in all areas of my life.   Focused on putting out the lastest fire or trying to meet the next deadline, I seldom took the time to fully appreciate all of our successes and the impact we were having with the young people we served

 

That started to change in 2022 when I began participating in a personal development program focused on examining the various components that contribute to happiness. Through the multiple strategies and practices that were shared, I started to examine my beliefs and identify the ones that were holding me back. I learned strategies to tune into my body and listen to that inner voice that always tells me what feels good and what makes me come alive. To further my own learning about the growing field of positive psychology and happiness, I became a Happy for No Reason Certified Trainer and completed the Managing Happiness online course offered by HarvardX. While I am still on this happiness journey, I also realized that I want to spend my energy helping other people along their happiness journey.  All of this led me to found Our Thriving World, aiming to address stress and burnout prevalent in the nonprofit, business, and all areas of life.

Our Commitment to the Environment

At Our Thriving World, we understand the profound impact of nature on well-being. While our workshops are conducted indoors to provide a focused and comfortable learning environment, we creatively incorporate tree imagery into our reflection activities, inviting participants to connect with the wisdom and resilience found in the natural world.   We also welcome the opportunity to conduct activities outdoors. Research consistently shows that spending time in nature reduces stress, boosts mood, and enhances overall well-being. We believe that even through imagery and visualization, participants can tap into the healing power of nature. 

We also recognize that we are part of one giant ecosystem. Urban trees, gardens, and parks play a pivotal role in supporting our existence and promoting physical, mental, and emotional health. As a commitment to our mission, we allocate a percentage of the revenue from each service offering over $5,000 to support local charities or neighborhood groups dedicated to caring for trees in specific neighborhoods of NYC. By partnering with us, you contribute to the preservation and nurturing of our natural environment. Together, let's embrace the symbolic and transformative power of nature and cultivate a thriving world for all.
