I am Stella! I am a 27 year old plant based vegan currently living life on somewhat of a whim. I travel long term but also love being in my hometown with family for several months of the year. I like to call myself an extroverted introvert.
I have lived all over including California, Oahu, Maui, Molokai, Portugal, Mexico, Turkey and the PNW as well as all over the east coast of the USA! I love everything to do with being outside - hiking and running being my favorites. I follow intuition entirely when it comes to life - eating, relationships, fitness, career and any big life decisions - follow that gut instinct - follow that BLISS!
I'm originally from the suburbs of of Philadelphia in the state of Pennsylvania. I'm actually living there right now and will be until March 2020.
I run a plant based coaching business that I started roughly 3 years ago and love every second of what I do / what plant based has brought to me - so I share that as much as I possible can with anyone open to it!
Emotionally, I rely on the support of my family (big time), my partner Damon and my self work/love keeps me stable.
The night sky has always captivated me .. Stella meaning star was my nickname growing up given to me by my father - he claims my face was as round and bright as a start when I was a baby...
I think the night sky is vast, open, endless, scary, beautiful, unknown and almost indescribable... like life.
Luckily we have the trees and earth to ground us and give us a home. I think the mix of the skyline with a tree line gives us both a feeling of limitless opportunity that is out there but also the safe, nurturing grounded feeling we get from mama earth.
OH! I love that this is 12 years old and not teen years!
12 year old me was... transitioning and unfocused on anything career related. My father was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, I had lost my group of girlfriends due to being bullied, my family had financial issues that I couldn’t understand.. and shoot, I was 12! What a tough/weird age!
I felt very strange about myself / my family life and honestly had zero idea what I wanted in life. I wasn’t very talented in school nor sports... so basically: 12 year old me had no plan of action!
Being outside. Simply cannot beat it... whether that be a 10 hour hike or laying in the grass in my backyard.. it never ceases to bring me peace!
