my best friend

As a cancer survivor, I learned that while cancer can challenge you, it doesn’t have to limit you.

In fact, cancer was the wake-up call I needed to finally start living the life I had always dreamed of — and that’s why I call it my best friend.

Cancer also taught me:

Your biggest challenges are OPPORTUNITIES to rewrite your life’s story.

Together, we will work on the state of your mind, body, and soul for you to gain control over your health and your life. Our time together will stem from my three core values :


Everybody goes through a different journey. Whichever medicine alternative you choose, our work together starts from the utmost respect for your own decisions. Your path is unique to you.


I am not here to dictate, I am here to empower. What you learn from me will help you not only today, but every time life throws challenges your way. You will become your own guide and healer.​


True transformation requires integrity: surrendering to your deepest desires and living in integrity with what serves you. Together, we will carve your path to value-driven wholeness and peace of mind.

How I Became The Online Cancer Coach

It was 2012 and it felt like time had stopped.

My breast cancer diagnosis was the hardest pill I’ve ever had to swallow.

As soon as my doctor said the words in that cold room, I felt like a bomb had just dropped on me: “You have 2 tumors, and unfortunately, they’re malignant.”

My heart was pounding. My mind was racing. I couldn’t even speak.

For a minute, I thought about the people I’d lost to cancer myself… My parents, to start with. I got scared. Angry. Just overall shocked.

I felt healthy and fine! What had I done to deserve this?!

The truth is: even though I kept asking myself every question in the books (Does this mean I’m going to die? Why me? Who can I talk to? How will this impact my life?), none of them could give me the answer I was looking for.

Instead, it was a little voice in my head telling me ’What if this isn’t the enemy that you think it is… What if there’s a good reason this is happening?’

You see, for a VERY long time, I was overworked and overwhelmed. I was a successful manager and food engineer, managing hundreds of people at once while juggling the demands of motherhood AND household chores.

I was always striving to be a good girl, a good mom, a good manager, a good wife – I wanted to be a superwoman! At least, I thought that’s what I wanted.

But my body didn’t. It kept sending me signals: back pain, constant colds, sleepless nights… I just didn’t listen.

My cancer diagnosis forced me to take a deep look at my life.

I couldn’t stick my head in the sand any longer — I had to face the fact that I had, in a way, done this to myself. Even though I had started coaching, I had stayed in an unhealthy job, in unhealthy relationships, putting myself second to everyone. And that had to change.

In your case, it may not be cancer… But if you’re reading this, you know that you need to change some things in your life, because the state you’re in isn’t serving you. 

Exercise, changes in my diet, meditation, mindfulness, different kinds of therapy and coaching helped me slowly build healthy habits to not only heal from cancer, but transform my life. And after seeing the transformation I had achieved, people started asking me for help in following my path… So I became The Online Cancer Coach. 

Fast forward to today: I live a life full of purpose, joy, and fulfillment. I help other women thrive, no matter what challenges they’re going through, and that fills my heart with gratitude every single day!
10 years ago, I took the wheel of my own life. I let go of all my excuses, reprogrammed my mindset, confronted all my limiting beliefs, and learned to express what I truly wanted in life.

I’m now inviting you to do the same.
