Yana 

it's an acronym. 

You. Are. Not. Alone

I know my mom didn’t intend for my name to be an acronym, yet it sure has turned out to be the story of my life. 

Making My Name a Reality

In my late 20's I thought I was living my dream life. I was working twenty hours a week, earning 80K/yr and living by the beach in Hawaii. I had all the time in the world to surf and hike and play...

and yet, inside, I was still miserable. 

I suffered with terrible depression. I drank often. I isolated and stopped having fun. I was in paradise, alone and desperate.
 

So, I hired a life coach.

 

It was the best decision of my life. 

I realized that for me, I would never be satisfied if I wasn't helping others. Living the dream life in Hawaii was incredible, but I wasn't following my passion and purpose. So I went back to the classroom.

 

In 2019 I got certified as a coach through Tony Robbins and Cloe Madanes and have been intentionally creating my dream life ever since. I get to help people every day. I get to be there for others and show them that they are NEVER alone. I am so humbled by every person I see succeed and I've never been more satisfied with life. 

Since that time, I've become a bit of a personal development junkie. I geek out on understanding the mind body connection and what it takes to truly thrive in life. I am passionate about discovering the array of tools ALL humans have within us and how we can use these tools to integrate joy and passion into all areas of our lives.

 

My vision is that collectively, we as a people, experience more gratitude and fulfillment on a daily basis while doing more of the things we love!

If you're here just to get to know me better and not looking for coaching at the moment, I'd still love to connect. Join me for a personal coffee or tea time on zoom.
