Thank you for being here with me. By sharing pieces of my story and my journey to wellness, I hope to help shape yours.
My story of healing and wellness is full of darkness and setbacks ranging from significant childhood trauma, to mental illness, to addiction, to autoimmune disease.
I know healing and wellness because I live it. I work every day to achieve balance and energy for my mind, body, and spirit.
It has taken me decades to collect the tools and practices that have shaped my healing. My mission is to empower you with the education, inspiration and support that I needed along my path to wellness, to enhance your journey.
Professionally, I spent my twenties and most of my thirties as a mathematics teacher utilizing my principal’s license to explore leadership opportunities. In my thirties I also worked part-time as a wellness coach for WW (Weight Watchers) as I learned how to maintain my weight loss while educating and inspiring others to do the same.
Everything shifted for me when, after years of dealing with significant infertility, I was blessed with a baby girl.
Not only did her arrival give me a deep fulfillment and sense of purpose that I had never known I needed, growing into motherhood challenged me with the opportunity to truly heal the wounds of my past.
Truth be told, the challenge of healing was ugly and scary. Perhaps as my blog and social communities grow,
I will share some of these stories that have shaped my past and informed my future. But until then, know this-
wherever you are, it is okay.
It is okay to struggle, it is okay to fall. Growth is messy and complicated. Healing is hard. But as a dedicated
practitioner of both, I can assure you that it is all worth it.
The only thing that is not okay is thinking that you are alone. The bravest thing you can do is get help. I am here to help you. Whether you are just beginning your wellness journey, or you are seeking to add more tools to your regimen, I am here. I’ll give you education, inspiration and support to meet you where you are, and move you to where you want to grow.
