About Manifesting Serenity
Manifesting Serenity’s about helping liberate and inspire people to know that there’s a whole world out there full of beauty & opportunities!
Actually, the foundation of Manifesting Serenity came to me during the pandemic, (of 2019/2020) the thoughts of feeling stuck and thinking, “Is this all there is?”. Absolutely NOT! There is an entire world of beautiful people, places that will bring you happy tears, and opportunities everywhere.
Best of all, they are all waiting for you to unveil them!! But what better way then to have Manifesting Serenity as your resources, inspiration, and ‘cheerleader’ hub, rooting for you!
But we won’t find many hidden beauties until we go wandering. Which these resources help fuel you to be able to do so!
Overall, the blog was created because I believe in spreading the knowledge of everything that leads us to live higher-quality lives, through nature connections, cultural immersion, wholistic health, challenging/shifting limiting beliefs & fears, as well as taking a curious and adventurous approach towards life.

So What's My Personal Story?
FAST FORWARD YEARS LATER…
I’m now a multi-passionate entrepreneur, business owner, world traveler, and healer.
Wowzers – there was a part of me that never thought that I could come this far, but now my visions and beliefs have changed!
In fact, the opportunities have been amazing and I’ve now:
- Moved to another state (all by myself and knew nobody) HELLO ARIZONA – and sunshine!
- Liv(ed) in a van and taken numerous road trips traveling to many states. Read about van life here!
- Solo backpacked the desert, mountainsides, and through canyons. Wanting to read more about backpacking? Head over here!
- Have flown in private airplanes around Seattle, Mt. Baker, Orcas Islands and Mt.Rainier.
- Solo internationally traveled for months at a time.
- Won 2nd place in a writing competition and featured across blogs.
Alongside many other crazy amazing adventures; rock climbing, parasailing, snorkeling, zip-lining, backpacking a rainforest to a glacier, foraging over 80 pounds of mushrooms, attending festivals, flying in private airplanes, swimming in more hot springs than I can count, going jet skiing, and way more than I can think of. I’ve now gained more strength, more resilience, more passion, and more courage than ever before.
I have many plans, ideas, and desires for more. But, you get the chance to come with me!!

What About Sustainability?
WHY DOES MANIFESTING SERENITY TALK ABOUT SUSTAINABILITY?
Have you ever watched those environmental documentaries? Whelp, those completely opened Serenity’s eyes to what the cycle is like outside of her daily circle.
Throughout those documentaries, she had seen animals suffer, oceans being polluted, drinking water contaminated, villages being dumped on with garbage because they couldn’t fend for themselves.
So, she decided to stand up and say that she will do her best to not be a part of the problem, but part of the solution! Especially in a compassionate and heartfelt way! ♡
After, continuing to make efforts on her own to change her diet to vegan, reduce my waste, avoid waste, and to educate others.
After working as a manager at an eco-boutique and specialty recycling center, she had seen just how many people wanted to learn and to do better. It inspired her even more to become a part of a bigger picture and to try to share with even more people!
Although, there are different levels of sustainability, she’s chosen the path of doing it imperfectly, but to still make efforts in her daily practice and to help show others that it is achievable!
What About Wellness?
WHY DOES MANIFESTING SERENITY TALK ABOUT WHOLISTIC HEALTH & WELLNESS?
Although the Founder of Manifesting Serenity has had wellness as a priority since she was 20 years old, it didn’t actually become a part of Manifesting Serenity until after she had hit burn out in December 2022.
Many of her previous business leaders had told her not to choose too many topics to talk about, so she had started with just Travel, and continued to be told to just pick one. Honestly, traveling 100% of the time all the time was just not achievable in a healthy way. As she had noticed through burn out and had decided that wellness was just such a foundational part of everything that it can not go without being acknowledged!
Especially because without health and wellness, we can not achieve much of anything, and it should be just as prized as travel and sustainability!
