and I am passionate about helping people create lives that are perfectly suited to their unique souls.
Because one day I woke up and realized that I had checked all the proverbial boxes that society deems necessary for a happy life (college degree, successful career, marriage, etc.) but still found myself feeling deeply unfulfilled.
That's when I began my self-discovery and personal transformation journey and once I remembered my purpose in this life, I knew that needed to make some big changes. Eventually, I left my career as a Vice President at a Fortune 500 company to purpose my purpose full-time.
Now I spend my days working to create a more beautiful and abundant, fulfilling, and joyous life for myself and I want to help you do the same!
In fact, my most fulfilling moments are when I hear back from people that I've helped to gain a new perspective, unlock a personal insight, or change something in their lives in order to become the person they know they're meant to be.
So I created Lotus Pathway as a community for sharing stories, ideas, and guidance along the path of self-discovery and personal transformation.
Through online courses, free guides and templates, and self-discovery quizzes, it is my hope that Lotus Pathway can serve as a compass to help you discover your unique path and continue the journey of your soul.
I'm so happy you're here!
I was born in Sri Lanka but moved to Southern California with my parents and younger sister at the age of two. Inspired by my mother, I became a voracious reader at a young age, constantly borrowing books from the library and eventually filling my own bookshelves with highlighted and dog-eared pages.
I love learning and I also loved planning which made me well suited to my career in project and program management and helped me achieve success in my most recent job as an executive at a large tech and entertainment company. In September 2019, I left my corporate job to work on Lotus Pathway full-time which is a dream come true!
As I moved through life and all of the various challenges and obstacles that arose along my path, I constantly sought out books and travel as a way to find answers. I travel as much as possible (this photo is from my last trip to Bali) and have gained so many insights through seeking new vistas.
I started my spiritual journey many years ago when I woke up one day and felt like I was living someone else's life.
I had always struggled with issues around conformity to societal and cultural norms, with the pressures that today’s women face around what it means to be successful and worthy, and with learning how to be myself in spite of other people’s expectations.
I've come a long way in the past few years and along the way I found that I LOVE helping others by sharing what I'm learning which is why I created Lotus Pathway.
I am avid learner and come from a long line of educators (both my parents, several aunts and uncles, and my grandfather).
In fact, I began teaching as early as high school when I taught my fellow JROTC students how to march and do drills. (I know! Can you believe I used to wear a uniform and yell commands?!)
I went on to teach SAT classes for Kaplan for several years during college, then taught program and project management to professionals at multiple Fortune 500 companies over the course of my corporate career.
And now I'm excited to be teaching others along the journey of self-discovery and personal growth!
In many Asian cultures, the lotus is a symbol of rebirth, perseverance, and transformation.
The lotus flower begins beneath mud and has to push through it in order to reach the surface and the light. When it blossoms, its beauty is there for all to see and enjoy.
As we move life we each encounter obstacles that we must overcome in order to become who we are meant to be. We are each on a journey towards that blossoming, taking one step at a time.
That is the Lotus Pathway.
