Hey, it’s Taj. Self-love coach + author.

I’m a recovering adrenaline junkie who swapped the wandering for a chase that’s calm — aspiring, creating, and defining my life without letting other people’s definitions distract me from who I really am. While my current day-to-day consists of meditation, reading, writing poetry, and soaking up the final hours of sunshine with my plants, my life’s mission is to help women heal themselves, love themselves, and find their purpose.
