My journey that brought me to YOU πŸ’ž

Do you ever wonder how we got here? 🌎

First of all, let me ask you… 
Are you happy with where you are at right now? πŸ˜„ Or Are you a bit disappointed? πŸ˜ž
You know there’s more to life.  You are meant to do or be more.  You want to find more happiness or fun or peace in your life.

Every day in our lives, we make hundreds (maybe thousands) of choices and decisions.
It could be as simple as deciding to take 3 breaths before yelling at our kids or raiding the pantry.
I just want you to know that you are right here/right now because of ALL these choices (big and small) every day.

I can say that I am proud of where I am at right now but wow, I made a ton of mistakes.
The cool thing is that I learned from these mistakes and moved on and now, here I am connected to YOU.

🏫 In college, my education was strictly clinical.  Graduating from Pitt, I was a Registered Dietitian ready to work in a hospital or nursing home.  I did a ton of calorie counts and I prescribed Ensure and other nasty therapeutic shakes.

πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ  MISTAKE #1: I hated the clinical scene. When sick in the hospital, the last thing patients wanted was to be lectured by a dietitian or follow a restrictive diet.  

πŸ’ͺ🏼 Next, I became a Certified Personal Trainer and worked in the gym setting.  I was getting closer to finding my purpose but I still couldn’t figure out how nutrition fit in.

πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ  MISTAKE #2: In the gym world, you are supposed to eat tons of protein to build muscle and shred fat.  A trainer’s diet consists or chicken, chicken, eggs, egg whites, and maybe some broccoli and rice.  This way of eating went against my schooling and at this point, I was confused.

πŸ’‘ When Brian and I moved to California, I started to see the light.  I worked with holistic doctors and was taught a whole new way to HEAL the body from the inside out.  I worked for a famous endocrinologist, Dr Schwarzbein, for a long time!  She helped me understand how hormones and blood sugar can make or break your metabolism.

πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦ At this point, I was a mom with 2 little ones.  Since I was a go getter and trying to prove something to myself, I started a healthy meal delivery service in Santa Barbara along with my other consulting gigs.  I had a full staff and full schedule.  

πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈΒ  MISTAKE #3: With too many obligations, too much stress, and not enough time, my health started to go downhill.Β  I knew I needed to find more life balance. πŸ™πŸΌ

When my family moved back to the east coast, I made a decision to create the life I wanted.Β  Yes, I enjoyed teaching nutrition and exercise, but I also craved more quality family time, simplicity, and peace in the mind.Β  This is when I started to teach yoga and meditation.Β  This is when I stopped all the rushing and limited my schedule.Β  This is when I blended my passions with my career (nutrition, exercise, stress management, mindfulness, balanced family home).

And right now… All of this led me to YOU.
As a health coach, my mission is to help motivated women lose weight effortlessly, overcome cravings and revive their energy so that they can confidently create a balanced lifestyle forever.Β Β
