About Elizabeth

I’m a self-love evangelist on a mission to change the narrative of what women have been told about success and happiness. 

After achieving conventional versions of success like graduating Summa Cum Laude from Tufts University with a B.S. in Quantitative Economics and Community Health and reaching a six-figure salary at a hot Silicon Valley start-up where I could drink #allthekombuchaontap, I realized I was trying to win a game I didn’t even want to play. I struggled with an eating disorder, my anxiety was through the roof, I had exactly zero minutes for self-care, and was really f*cking tired of leaning in.

I said goodbye to my decade-long career in corporate to pursue my master’s degree at Columbia University in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Spirituality and Mind-Body practices where I studied burnout and perfectionism in corporate women and the science of happiness. I have since dedicated my career to empowering women, teaching about emotional and spiritual wellness, and changing the rules of the game. 

When I’m not writing (or trying to smash the patriarchy), you can find me dancing in my apartment, exploring the world with my husband Andrew, or reading the latest from my (s)hero Brené Brown. The redwoods are my happy place. 

Monday Vibes Values

TRUST

Trust in yourself, trust in the Universe, and
trust in the process of it all.

THE ESSENCE

WHAT IT MEANS

Life is full of twists and turns but when we
embrace the unknown and let go of
perfection, we open ourselves up to the
beauty in front of us.

CONNECTION

The journey is meant to be shared.

THE ESSENCE

WHAT IT MEANS

Spend time with people you love. Nurture your relationships. Give back to your community. Life is so much richer when we remember we are all in this together.


EMPOWERMENT

We are always in the driver’s seat of our own life.

THE ESSENCE

WHAT IT MEANS

No one gets to dictate how you live your life
but you. Time to ditch the shoulds, stop the
people-pleasing and quiet the little voice that
says “you can’t do this.”

JOY

Enjoy the little moments.


THE ESSENCE

WHAT IT MEANS

Life can feel like it moves a mile a minute.
Learning how to stop and enjoy the little
moments is the ultimate superpower.
