My path into the wellness industry evolves from a combination of unique experiences and an education model that believes, like I do, that ultimate health starts on the inside and will naturally show up on the outside. That’s a very powerful place to be and a truly authentic and healthy place to live from. Although I am formally trained and certified, I have been a constant student and advocate of achieving a state of health.
In addition to competing in triathlons, half marathons and now cycling, I’ve been a professional model for over 25 years, a mother of four beautiful children and interested in health and fitness since I was a young girl. At 15, I had a job in a health club where I taught classes and helped people with their health goals. Many seeds were being planted from a very young age. In the modeling industry, I’ve seen just about every diet there is out there. I had an opportunity to travel the world and the privilege to be in and around an industry whose main focal point was beauty. I was always interested in more than just losing weight, being in shape or looking good for the camera. There was so much more to it and I knew it. In 2010, I had an excruciating accident and broke my hip just three weeks after a national race where I qualified to represent the USA in the Worlds race in China. Just 10 days after my accident my doctor gave me the go ahead to do some selective training because he felt I was in shape to do so and because we thought I’d recover in time to go to China. In the end, I did not get to go, but the recovery experience gave me an opportunity to get even more fierce about my whole body from the inside out and the miraculous and beautiful ways that healing actually takes place. It also made me realize that no matter how much I couldn’t do physically right then, it was still a lot more than most because I was fueling my whole body with optimizing nourishment in every possible way. This resulted in faster recovery, complete fulfillment, and a renewed inspiration to return to school to become a Certified Health and Nutrition Practitioner and Coach.
Having come full circle with my own health, I was ready to race again in no time but I also got in touch with my lifelong passion of sharing my wisdom and motivating others to come to their own place of ultimate health. I am living proof that it’s possible and I know that anyone can get to his or her own next level with the right support and the right structure. My knowledge draws upon my life experiences and my training in over one hundred dietary theories and nutritional sciences, a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods, and an effective personalized road map to health that suits the individual’s unique body, lifestyle preferences and goals.
Everyone wants to be healthy. Everyone has their own path to wellness within them. The key is to understand that we are all different and that it’s not about fitting oneself into a diet or body type but finding the food and nourishment that truly feed your Whole Body Beautiful. Are you ready to find your path to wellness?
If you said yes, then we should definitely talk.
“I’m not only walking, I’m racing competitively again! It wasn’t easy, and I did it much faster than anyone thought I could.
Imagine what applying my successful health strategies and receiving fierce support are doing for people ready to take their health into their own hands? The results inspire me every single day!”
