My Journey: From Financial Services to Holistic Wellness

Hello, I'm Dori, a dedicated advocate for holistic well-being and personal transformation. My path to becoming a Certified Health Coach and Certified Breathwork Facilitator has evolved organically over time. I haven't always been on this wellness journey. In fact, in my “past life,” I worked in the Financial Services Industry in Marketing and Communications.

While living in NYC, I worked my way up to Divisional Vice President. Later, I moved to Boston, MA, where I faced significant stress due to combining major life changes in a short period, enduring a 2-hour long commute, and balancing business travel while striving for success.

My journey has been one of resilience and growth, shaped by years of battling health challenges that emerged during my corporate career. These experiences ignited my passion for guiding individuals toward greater health and healing. This passion is why I decided to become a Certified Trauma-Informed Breathwork Facilitator, Certified Holistic Health Coach, Level II Reiki practitioner, and Guided Meditation Teacher. I have also recently expanded my writing skills as an author and had the privilege of serving as a guest speaker on numerous wellness podcasts, sharing my insights and expertise with diverse audiences.

In 2019, I decided to further my education and pursue a certification in Health Coaching from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN). Then, in 2022, I became a Certified Trauma-Informed Breathwork Facilitator through Pause Breathwork. Fast forward to 2023, I decided to combine my wellness journey with health, nutrition, and breathwork.
