You wear a lot of hats, but the common themes in your work center around wellness and living a happy, healthy life. What got you interested in that?
I grew up with the typical American lifestyle—you have mom’s cooking, but you also have junk food like Pop-Tarts. I didn’t know about wellness. I developed an eating disorder at a young age 14 or 15 and then also later struggled with alcohol,which went into my 20s. And then along that path I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma at 19. So all those things combined together made me decide to develop a healthier lifestyle to live longer and be happier and to do what I’m passionate about. Around the age of 25, I started to take better care of myself again. I started to eat better. Around age 27, I started to do yoga, which really changed things. So those all tied together, and I got really, really curious about how we can heal ourselves. Now here we are.
