Tell us your first three jobs (ever!): At the age of 14, I worked as a salesperson for my family’s clothing store. Then I had a job in marketing at BSH home goods and then another marketing position at LG Electronics.
Zodiac sign: Aquarius
What do you love about Ikaria? I think of Ikaria as the Pachamama, the Mother Earth, the mother that you wanted but maybe didn’t have. The energy of the island is extremely healing and timeless. If you can surrender and go-with-the-flow, Ikaria will heal you.
Tell us something most people don’t know about you: I speak with animals and can act as an animal communicator. We all can really, but I’m trained in it and practice it.
Where we are most likely to find you in Lynn’s Kundalini Yoga : At the Ikaria Surf+Yoga holiday sharing my natural products with the gang.
First time you tried Kundalini Yoga? In Athens in 2011 with my Spanish teacher–she was also a Kundalini Yoga instructor!
Tell us your top tip to combat climate change: Consume less! We consume so much more than we need. You can look at most aspects of your life and cut back–including food!
