Specifically, she utilizes the Bagua Energy Map and the Five-Element Theory as a framework to educate people of how Eastern (i.e., Bagua) and Western (i.e., Food Science – Nutritional Biochemistry) concepts intersect through diet.

Her philosophy of life is to help others experience holistic health and wellness practices in their daily lives through transformation and self-mastery. She seeks to help others achieve this goal as a result of her own personal experiences and principles as a practitioner of Korean Martial Arts (Hapkido) (1st Dan Black Belt) as well as Brazilian Jujitsu.
