“I believe that anyone at any age can progress from where they are now to where they desire to be.”

My Story

I took an interest in fitness when I was 17 while playing sports and strength training in my high school gym. I really enjoyed the boost that it gave my confidence, plus the athletic physique! That time in my life planted a seed that remained until I came to a point as an adult that I felt compelled to take action.

When I was 30, I hit a wall with my health.

I was over 200lbs, I was stress eating, exhausted and not sleeping well. Simply put my body was burnt out. I started to learn more about eating for wellness, and how detrimental sugar was to my well-being. That sparked my turning point, and I chose to eat for nourishment and energy. Stress eating and massive sugar cravings were done. I lost the excess weight and learned how to listen to my body.

The second seed that was planted in my early years was my mother’s experience as a herbalist with Nature’s Sunshine. I was really proud of how her passion for helping others changed so many lives for the better. I always felt that would be a really cool business to be in. Inspiring others to care for their health and feel better than they ever thought possible.

When I became a mother, I took my family’s health more seriously. In 2009 I decided to start my own business, sowing the seed that was planted in my teens by my mother. I began to learn a lot more while teaching others about herbal nutritional products and a healthier lifestyle. I was able to help my son overcome food allergies and keep my children healthy through the school season.

The Next Step

I was learning to apply nutrition, fitness and holistic health support into my own life and saw the benefits! In 2014 I acted on that little seed planted in high school and started my AFLCA fitness certification process. When I stepped up my fitness training regimen, combined with nutrition and healthy lifestyle the results were lasting and I felt unstoppable. I was now becoming stronger, more fit, and happier with my body in my forties than I was in my twenties!

I would say my favorite exercise is the squat, because I like how I can challenge myself and how strong I can feel in this exercise.

My Favorite Thing About Fitness

Getting stronger.

I respect my body more and value what it is capable of. I love how I can enhance the aesthetics of my body by lifting weights and eating right. I’m now in the best shape of my life and have been able to avoid a lot of the signs of aging that would be expected in my forties. With fitness I have gained the strength and confidence to believe in myself and follow my dreams of a fulfilling career in health and wellness.

Achievements

My biggest personal achievement has been to stay youthful and have vitality for the many demands of life.

Hobbies

I enjoy cooking and baking with my family. I love meaningful conversations with supportive friends over coffee. I enjoy reading self-improvement books and spending time outdoors with my family. If I have the opportunity to go somewhere warm and sunny near the beach, I’m there!

Ambitions

My bucket list for the future would include taking singing lessons and participating in a fitness competition in my fifties! I actually enjoy public speaking and hope to do more of it at some point.
