My name is Annette. I am a Wife, a Mother of 4, a proud Grandma, Yoga Teacher, Reiki Master, supporter of MADD and an advocate for health and wellness. I love spending time with my family, practicing and teaching yoga, cooking, hiking, camping, exploring and keeping myself and my family healthy. I am on an ongoing project of not only refining who I am but to help others do the same as well.
In July of 2005, my life was changed forever. A drunk driver took the life of my 17 year old son and his best friend. My life, my purpose and outlook on life changed.
It took me several years to come out of my shell. For years I kept looking at a picture taken just two weeks before this horrible event and kept thinking “I want to be her again”. It took me years to come to the point where I realized that I would never be “her” again. I had to learn to continue in my new life. I began to allow my grief to help me learn, grow and become a better person because of it. That was the birth of Project Refined Life.
Through meditation, yoga and practicing overall natural healing modalities, I have come to place of peace and deeper understanding. My purpose, my “project” is to share the knowledge I have gained and help others refine and heal while spreading love, surrender and joy.
