Haven spent 25+ years in marketing, sales and business development leading teams, developing talent, crafting campaigns and generating new revenues to grow businesses. Then she stumbled, with grace into a Nia class, began to wake up and walk (and then run) towards a better way. Her passion for Nia and its body, mind, emotion and spiritual healing led to her Reiki Jin Kei Do and integral to her lineage, a dedication to meditation and awareness, mindfulness and compassion.
Now Haven helps busy professionals be their best at work and at home. She uses practical tools to show people how to get more done in less time, find balance, create a bigger impact, and make more money. She utilizes energy therapy to help them break through mental and emotional blocks and she teaches the sustainable practices mindfulness and meditation so they learn how to slow down.
Haven believes speed is the illusion of mastery and in order to be your best, you need to slow down. Then you can get crystal clear about your priorities and you can focus and be super productive. Haven has been practicing and teaching mindfulness and meditation for over 7 years to individuals, groups, and corporate clients.
