Hadassah

Tell us a little about yourself.
I am 42 years old, vision impaired and a mother to my 13-year-old son, Adam. I am divorced, but in a wonderful and fulfilling relationship for the last five years. Family as well as friends are very important to me. Before losing my vision, I worked at our family salon and spa. I was a hairstylist and makeup artist with a large following. After losing my vision, I wasn't able to continue in my profession and soon developed a line of hair fragrances called Mane Intentions. In 2015, I returned back to school and became a certified professional coach. I began a practice called LyfeTrac. I have always loved helping others, whether it is on the inside or out. Being a life coach is very rewarding!

How did you get involved with Hadassah?
I became involved in Hadassah back in 2008. I had gone to a membership opener with a few friends and instantly felt the connection. It was a great event and I joined immediately.

What is it about Hadassah that resonates with you?
Aside from the wonderful connections and friendships I made through Hadassah, I am most connected to the findings that are generated from medical research on many diseases and health conditions.

Share something you would like people to know about you
What I would like people to know about me is that through all of my life experiences, I have found it within myself to persevere. Negativity gets us nowhere and I believe in the power of a positive attitude. It's never too late to reinvent yourself!
