In 2005 I was divinely guided to this land.  I have built this sanctuary in total faith knowing this land is a temporary place for me to call home.  My goal is: Being who I was meant to be in this life.  Living a committed life to service, love and peace by doing my work in raising the consciousness on Earth.

I was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil.  Descendant of Italian immigrants on my mother’s side and native South-American on my father’s side, I came to the US when I was in high school to learn English.  Fell in love with this amazing country, went to college in California, got married and raised 3 wonderful children.  I founded and directed a preschool for over 10 years.  However, after I finished my Master’s of Science in Acupuncture, I decided it was time to get out of the busy city.  My spiritual health was not in as good as shape as I wanted it to be, my clarity was fading as I found myself in the constant rat race of wake up go to work come home go to sleep and all the stress in between.  I knew life was meant to be more (or less actually) than all that.  I was at defining cross point in my life: stay where I was and continue to make great money, but be stressed constantly and have little time to myself or take a chance and plunge into what my heart is calling.  I sold everything and relocated to Sedona, AZ.  Built my dream ranch as I had designed on my vision board 10 years prior to even finding this place.  Here I am realizing my so called “long term plan” and now living it to the fullest.

I am a true believer in living in truth.  This truth means knowing your purpose on this planet and delivering it.  This truth means surrendering the deep programs of our current society and stepping into authenticity committing to the best service on this planet and lifetime.  There is no room or time for pretending to be something one isn’t, living a life of lies, or worse yet lying to yourself.  This is the time to be who you are meant to be.  Only when we are on the path of Light (truth and authenticity) does the Universe fully bless our journey with more than we could wish for.  I welcome you to take the time for the soul’s voice to be heard.  Don’t leave for tomorrow what you can do today! It is time to do the inner work and raise the vibration.  To be responsible and take accountability for your own self.

​Thank you for visiting Sedona Ranch. Ultimately we are all seeking the same 3 things: Health, Happiness and Peace. Everyday is an opportunity to achieve and live them all.


​Much love,
