After a struggle to get healthier and happier, I decided to take charge. I went back to school and am turning my passion, education and experience into a flourishing career dedicated to helping others find their path to true health and happiness. I believe that we should focus our efforts and energy on investing in our health…best summed up : Prevention NOT Prescriptions!
I love finding ways to move my body without feeling like I am “exercising”. Being outdoors, hiking, walking, biking, being indoors with the motivation of others spinning, dancing, yoga, pilates, and trying new activities with my family. I enjoy turning ‘favorite foods’ into healthy amazing meals and getting creative with nutrition.
After growing up in the Bay Area (California) and then living in Orange County for 12 years, our family had to move due to a job relocation by my husband’s company. With this move came many changes, struggles and challenges for us all to leave our comfort zone. We have now landed in Bakersfield, Ca.( not sure for how long). Well, there isn’t as much to do here as other places we have lived, the school choices and employment options are limited but I decided not to let anything get in the way. So, I am social networking and reaching out to people all over the country to walk side by side with you on your journey to living a healthier lifestyle. I am here to share my story, my success, my education, my research and my smile to help motivate and change lives!
My Journey….I do feel Fabulous today…but I haven’t always felt fabulous. On the exhilarating ride of the roller coaster, I have been healthy, in excellent shape, ran a marathon, hiked mountains, financially secure and on the nauseating downward spiral of the roller coaster, I have been over weight, unhealthy, battling ailments, depression, struggling financially and frustrated! I imagine there are many of you that have had a roller coaster journey as I have. I know a lot of people that ask…why am I not happy? Why do I feel so miserable? what now? what’s my purpose? is this it? who am I? how can I possibly change this? I asked all of those questions and struggled to find the answers. Once I truly let it go and just accepted the journey that was planned for me (for us) then I could start to discover the answers. It wasn’t an easy road but the hardest road taken has the most rewards. I now feel amazingly healthy, strong, confident, in love with my life and my family again! I have compassion and truly care about your journey! I am here as a Certified Health Counselor and Fitness Coach to help you today!!
