Annabel grew up in Update NY, the youngest of 4, she witnessed and learned from her older siblings decisions. She chose to forgo college and to explore the things she loved to do. Not only did she have time to finish her tiny house on wheels, travel to over 10 countries, create 300+ videos, discover forest therapy and become a certified guide, pursue her interest in Astrology by taking a 3 year Soul Level Astrology certification, but most importantly she’s been able to be a full-time caregiver for her 91 year old grandfather with dementia for the last 3 years. Through sleepless nights, confusion, anger, compassion and love, she’s discovered her own strength, voice and what matters most to her in life - love, connection & family.
