Rima Danielle Jomaa - the Jungle Girl

Rima Danielle Jomaa, AKA Rima the Jungle Girl

Today our guest leads us in a toast to meeting new people, the beautiful jungle atmosphere, and being able to do what we love and connect with people. It was the perfect toast to kick off my very first conversation with Rima Danielle Jomaa, AKA Rima the Jungle Girl.

Rima is an entrepreneur, licensed marriage counselor, and vegan lifestyle advocate. She’s really incorporated an incredible brand and lifestyle, inspiring and activating others to reclaim their health, happiness, and freedom through her podcast, coaching, retreats, and more.

“I’m a vegan simply because I want my actions and my words to align with my morals and ethics – that’s really all it’s about. It’s the best way that I’ve found to extend the compassion and love that I preach about and want for myself to all living creatures.” –Rima the Jungle Girl

  • Doing what needs to be done to live a life that you love

I love the world of food and beverage, everything about it, it’s soo damn sexy! Every time we eat and drink it ignites us sensually…the look, texture, taste, smell, sound all in a unique combination, encapsulating a moment in time. The act of sharing a meal with friends, chatting, eating, and drinking together is so forking perfect. It is a feeling that echoes a sense that All Is Good! Very, Very good!
