It is my MISSION to help you find your way through these issues because I used to suffer from these things, I used to hide behind frumpy clothes and felt such shame about my body, it was debilitating. 

I will share the entire process I went through and teach you how I changed my body by changing my mindset.

It was at the point where I actually hated and avoided looking at my body. I wouldn't even walk around undressed in my own home. There are far too many things in life that are uncontrollable, but pain and hopelessness in your own body doesn't have to be the norm.

WHY AM I HERE?

Let me share my story.

I believe that your potential to change is made possible through hitting a low, through a trauma, the proverbial "rock bottom." There is something to that. 

During my 20’s I was busy having kids and trying to work. I was in a challenging relationship, dealing with weight gain and a depression (for "no" reason) that was crushing.

All I wanted was to be a fit, vital and healthy woman who was able to handle life and flow with inevitable ups and downs. In my reflection, I saw an unhealthy and frumpy woman who wasn’t taking care of herself. 

Because of the extra weight I carried, I suffered from knee weakness and plantar faciitis. I felt unhealthy and my blood sugar, thyroid and adrenals were starting to become unstable.

My weight was all over the place! Eventually I found myself at the highest weight I’d ever been! Eek! I didn’t fit in my clothes and was so uncomfortable in my own skin, I covered myself in frumpy, shapeless clothing. I was grumpy, angry, and miserable. 

I was closing my eyes and trying to hide from who I was.

At that point it wasn't about the weight, it was the shame. It had bled into my entire life, was destroying my marriage.

One Spring day I was unpacking my seasonal clothes and discovered that not one thing looked good. Most didn't fit and the ones that had been loose were either form-fitting or I had to force myself into them. Forget the jeans, they went in the attic. I can't even describe the despair I felt that day. I remember storming out to go shopping feeling angry, hateful, all on me. 

It took getting that low for me to be willing to turn it around. We never change until we're ready and I found myself ready, so ready.

 I made a decision for change. There are far too many things in life that are uncontrollable, but pain and hopelessness should never be in control of anyone's life!

Then something happened…

THE DESIRE TO CHANGE BECAME GREATER THAN MY FEAR.

I have BEEN there. I found that the way out was through. I decided to seek help, through a supportive group I connected with much more than a “weight loss group”, it was a real Sisterhood of Women, a source of support, information and inspiration on how to eat healthier, fun meal and cooking ideas, we brainstormed solutions to things from staying the course when you’re busy, when you’re going through a tough time in life (and tempted to fall from the path).

From there I started working privately with a health and wellness coach and my journey from there to here AMAZES me!

I decided to follow my passion, went back to school and obtained several certifications as well as attending countless seminars, classes and workshops with awesome talent from the health, wellness and life-coaching field.

 I’m deeply passionate about helping other women reach their health goals, feel beautiful and make it last!

If you’re feeling even a little bit hopeless and have abandoned your goals I want to help you find your way back onto your path. I help you love your body, love your food and learn how to take charge of your health and your life.
