What led you to coaching?
Long story short, I had a transformative coaching experience in 2015. I had reached my lowest point in terms of romantic relationships and self-worth. It was a really challenging time for me. Through all of that pain and struggle, I somehow managed to weave through it and learn more about myself than I thought possible. I thought, if I could overcome my challenges, maybe I could help someone else, too. If I could break through these challenges at my lowest point, imagine what I could do with a coach when I felt GREAT about myself.
I work in mental health and see the impact of kindness, meditation and intimate conversations every day. I see how powerful it can be. I also feel limited by working in the hospital because of various hospital policies.
I wanted to do more and create sustainable coaching practices on my own terms.
Living in alignment has allowed me to connect with myself in a way that I never thought possible. I feel inspired, loved and safe. It is a feeling that is indescribable. Through the integration of ancient healing modalities and modern-day coaching skills: I am able to share these pieces of knowledge and experiences with my client in a palatable and sustainable way.
When a client starts to have their own "aha” moments, my heart expands with joy. The power is inside of you as it always was and always will be.
What quote or saying inspires you as a coach?
"We rise by lifting others." - Robert Ingersoll
What did you do before you became a coach? What do you do outside of coaching?
I started my career as a preschool-teacher-turned-behavior-therapist and now a child life specialist. Coaching is definitely in my wheelhouse but launching my own programming has become a dream come true. I have poured my heart and soul into cultivating programs that meet the unique needs of a client.
I was inspired by my niece, Rozy, to take the leap into coaching and complete my life coaching program. In fact, I even named my business after her – Pink Rose Wellness – and have pledged to donate proceeds to help children that are Rozy's age.
What kind of clients would best benefit from your coaching?
I believe my work could benefit all people; however, because of my personal background as a first-generation South Asian immigrant, I find that I tend to attract millennial women of color. My work is catered towards an individual who is open to the idea of radical transformation. An individual who is ready to invest in themself in every sector of their life – mind, body and soul. Someone who believes in a higher power. Someone who is willing to tap into their personal power. I support women to break through exhaustion to align with clarity, expression and purpose.
What does a typical session with you look like?
I have four very specific structures that are customizable for clients (I’m working on a 5th). However, I’m leaning into the divine feminine and stepping into fluidity. I find clients have amplified progress and connect deeper this way. It’s an integrative experience of sound healing, visualization, conversation and meditation. I also bring together ancient chakra work with Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.
Sessions are filled with a lot of ease, fun and purpose. It is a safe space for you to show up as you are: enough, worthy and full of light. It can look different for each client, depending on their journey.
