Pain to Power: A Story with a Twist...

I’ve been smell-blind since I was a toddler. I’ve had an eating disorder and body dysmorphia since I was 15 when a loved one tried to take his own life. I’ve struggled with depression since my early 20s. I went through burnout and miscarriage, and lost a loved one to cancer.


After getting to the edge of suicide in 2021, I was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD) and bipolar disorder at 32.


But this isn’t a sad story. It’s an unusual modern fairy tale.


I put together everything I learned through all my difficult experiences and created Pain to Power – an academy for creative empowerment, which helps navigate uncertainty, adapt to change, and thrive despite adversity.

Creativity can help you turn your pain into power and enable you to re-sculpt your identity, re-design your reality, and re-write your story!

In addition to being what today’s standards define as “mentally ill,” I’m also a trained journalist, smell-blind food designer and stylist with over a decade of experience in the international food space, certified Mind Body Eating coach by The Institute for the Psychology of Eating, TEDx speaker, and Forbes 30 under 30 social entrepreneur.


I teach creative techniques for self-discovery, self-expression, and self-empowerment, which help people make step-by-step plans for solving complex problems, navigating challenges, and tackling difficult situations. 


I lead immersive workshops and courses, where students learn to unleash and channel their creativity into empowering, relaxing, and therapeutic activities and practices they can do in under 30 minutes as often as they choose.
