Hi, I'm Joanna.
I'm dedicated to helping you live a more fulfilling life.
I'll give you practical life tools that will give you the courage and confidence to live the life you have always dreamed of. It is possible to make the changes NOW and reach your life goals with passion and inspiration. The Nurse Your Life method includes a blend of philosophy, practicality, medical knowledge and a holistic approach to solving everyday problems in your professional and personal life.
How it all started:
From an outsider’s perspective, I had “everything”.
A wonderful family ✓
Great friends ✓
Flourishing Career ✓
The freedom to travel the world at a drop of a hat, for as long as I wanted and when I wanted. ✓
Lived in one of the most incredible cities in the world, New York City. ✓
I found myself, looking for more. Something was missing. I was looking for a greater purpose. I was at the top of my career ladder before I even turned 27. I knew that there was more out there for me to discover, I just did not know what. I started “looking” for the answers to my questions. I was on a mission to find “it”. I studied (and continue to study) philosophy, leadership, self-help/development, basically ANYTHING I could get my hands on.
I was making progress until…
Fast forward 2 years later, I entered into a relationship that has changed the course of the rest of my life.
For the next 3 years, I was harassed and stalked by an ex. At the time I didn’t even recognize what was happening to me. I felt unsafe everywhere going anywhere including in my own home. My intuition told me that he was following me and I felt helpless. Thankfully I finally found the courage to go to the police. It culminated with him getting arrested, pleading guilty and an order of protection was issued.
This was my wake up call. The whole experience made me have to go deeper. I came to the realization that I was sleepwalking throughout my life. I was doing all the things that everyone else was telling me would make me happy but not listening to my own gut. I took this as my opportunity to make a real change in my life.
My mission went from finding what was missing to finding who I am, what I truly wanted and how to get there. From that space, inspiration took over.
- I studied even more.
- I read and reread books with fresh eyes.
- I was forced to look into the deeper parts of myself and bring them to the surface.
- I had hard conversations with people I never thought I could have.
- I attended all types of workshops and courses from renowned self-help leaders.
- I started traveling with a purpose, to learn about different cultures and gain the experiences I read about. (To date, I have traveled to over 70 countries and still counting).
I then personally tested out what I was studying, whatever tools I learned I tried out. What worked for me stayed and what didn’t I let go of. I developed a new understanding of what I studied and most importantly I gained a new understanding of myself.
All my work paid off and I’m proud to say today I am living the life I always wanted!
I'm here to help! I can show you how to:
- Find your passions so that it can be transformed into your life purpose.
- I'll teach you the tools I have created and use every day to create anything you want.
I’m here to serve YOU! What I share will transform your life as it has transformed mine.
