About Me

Do you find yourself with many of the things you thought you wanted to be happy, yet still feel an aching need for more? Perhaps you have the life you worked hard for, but still feel like there must be something more out there? Or maybe you have no idea what you want to do for the rest of your life and are seeking clarity or guidance.

This was me a few years ago and, at times, is still me today. I am always looking for more.

Don’t get me wrong, I live a very grateful life. I have an amazing job helping people every day, I own a home in the beautiful city of Barrie, I have love in my life, and my amazing son Grayson fills my heart with endless joy and pride. He is seriously my whole world!

Then why do I still crave more? Because I am human. Because I know I deserve as much as my heart desires. Because I want to lead by example so my son never stops reaching for what truly makes him happy in life. So when I say I am always looking for more, I mean: more love, more laughter, more personal growth, more knowledge, more ways to serve.

Q & A

Q: What are your Core Desired Feelings?

My Core Desired Feelings are connected, authentic, empowered, creative, open hearted, inspired, resilient, fearless, strong, healthy, content, grounded, free, loved!

Q: How / where did you Desire Map? What did you love about doing it that way?

It was January 2015, and I was bitten by a New Year’s resolution to better myself (a trait inherited from my wise mother who was always inspired by self-help books and, in turn, inspired me to always be the best “Mandy” I could be) when I discovered that my yoga studio was hosting a Desire Map Workshop. I didn't even know what the Desire Map was at that time but it sounded like something I needed to be a part of. After doing some deep research on Danielle Laporte and what the Desire Map offered, I was hooked. I signed up right away. I was even more excited to participate because it was being hosted by my favorite yoga instructor, someone who I truly admire.

The workshop was held in her beautiful home. It felt safe.
It was a sacred space that allowed me to be vulnerable and to share and discover my core desired feelings with many of soul seekers. It was eye opening, earth-shattering and intense. It hit all the right nerves in me and spoke to me in a way no other self-help promise ever has.

The Desire Map shook me to my core. I could feel it was changing my life.

This workshop surfaced the past: the good, the bad and the ugly. It unveiled a series of events that led me to where I am today and shaped me into the woman, the friend, the daughter, the wife, the ex-wife, and the mother I am today.

The Desire Map workshop helped me realize that I had the control to either stay on that path or re-direct it. And that it’s not so much about what’s at the end of the path, but the path itself. It’s a long journey, so we should be feeling fulfillment every day, right?

Ever since that life-altering day in January, I have stopped chasing my goals and have started chasing my core desired feelings. My life will never be the same!

Q: Tell me a specific story about how knowing your CDFs has changed your life.

That pivotal moment!

When I discovered The Desire Map, it truly changed my life. I wanted to tell the whole world about it. I found everything in my life changing when I began asking myself: How do I want to feel? And what am I willing to do to feel the way I want to feel?

Q: Why are you passionate about sharing this work with others?

When I discovered there was a licensing program to become a Desire Map Facilitator that would support me in bringing this work to others, I knew I had to do it!

As a Licensed Desire Map Facilitator & Coach, I am now feeling my own core desired feelings through helping others live according to how they want to feel. I have the opportunity help people find clarity and teach others how to create goals with soul. I get so much pleasure out of empowering women to love themselves deeply – starting with their heart, tapping into their love, and bringing their core desired feelings to life. I mean, I get goosebumps just thinking about it!

If you are a seeker or goal getter who desires more, I would love to help you find clarity on your goals and guide you on your journey to fulfillment. So tell me… how do you want to feel?

It’s simple and incredibly powerful.


“I do a lot and am successful at what I do. But the workshop helped me recognize that I’ve been stuck in survival mode – the joy in what I was doing wasn’t there. Getting in touch with the feelings that drive what I do takes me beyond survival and into thriving, which makes life so much sweeter.” Desire Map Workshop Participant

Tracy Greene

“I was surprised to find that the tribe of women I met at The Desire Map Workshop helped me to open up and go deep — really deep, really fast. There was no judgement, no suggestion of how to feel. Sharing in that sacred space was powerful.” Desire Map Workshop Participant

Twyla Dill

“I’ve been through (and led) many leadership and growth workshops and I can honestly say The Desire Map workshop has been one of the most powerful I’ve experienced. The exercises, the journal time, the clear and encouraging facilitation and the support of the other participants all contributed to a stellar event.” Desire Map Workshop Participant

Pamela Sampel

“Our workshop was filled with unexpected and unexplainable connections. We were sisters by the end, as we learned from each other’s experiences and drew on each other’s energy. It was a weekend love, healing and moxie.” Desire Map Workshop Participant

Brandi Buckman

“The clarity I have now (after the workshop) is amazing. I know how to do things differently from now on, to get to what I want to feel everyday.” Desire Map Workshop Participant

Palomi Sheth

“Attending the Desire Map Workshop changed everything. I was so filled up when I left… So much gratitude. I can’t say enough about the experience. It was heaven.” Desire Map Workshop Participant

Shawn Marie Turi
