Tell us about your path to creating your business and your vision
My path started when I was young (8 years old) – I was always listening to people then… helping people, building up their self esteem. Then I got into numbing out through my teens with lots of things and it was primarily the food that sent me to the doctor – often. I was so sick with so many things (migraines, stomach issues, immunity issues, no menstrual cycle and on and on…) All the docs gave me more prescriptions. I finally started changing around my food. Hired my first life coach at age 20 (I’m 38 now) and I’ve been in this space of growing and learning every since. Started my business almost 8 years ago both life coaching and nutrition coaching. I’m an artist that has been in the closet… and I’ve been writing and finally just got serious about publishing. I’m going to put out my first book this year. I build my business mostly from speaking and this year I plan to do that more and to larger audiences. I feel grateful for all the entrepreneurial lessons 🙂
Tell us a little about yourself and your philosophy on wellness:
I believe in aligning the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects. I want to get to the root cause. I see perfectionism, addictions, etc as our opportunity to evolve. I think that whole foods, prayer, meditation and yoga every day can make life so much more beautiful. Also, no human being is like another. There is no cookie cutter approach to wellness. It’s about learning to love yourself, know yourself and accept yourself while finding the path that works best for you.
What was the catalyst in your life to fuel your commitment to wellness?
There were a few… being so frustrated with doctors giving me meds and not telling me why I was so sick – one doctor told me that food was a placebo and that it made no difference. Migraine headaches were ruining my life, I had no way to go but up. Also, learning about the politics involved with our food industry, reading the “Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan” when I first came out was a huge catalyst. I was so angry (and still am) and I want to change our food system and how we take care of earth, our body and treat humanity as a whole. This drives me more than anything.
How do you stay healthy, resilient and vibrant?
I have a commitment and habits with food, moving my body, meditation. I never stop learning – my body is always changing so this is necessary. Along with relationships with people I love, artistic, sensual, creative outlets keep me healthy, resilient and vibrant too.
If there was only one thing a person could find the energy and resources to make a priority what would it be?
Eating whole foods each day. Not being perfect at it and yet it is a priority to eat the majority of foods that don’t come in a box each and every day (along with lots of water). This would change everything.
What is your favorite inspirational quote for wellness / awesomeness / thrival?
It’s so challenging to choose one! Here are two that hang by my desk: “You must face annihilation over and over again to find what is indestructible in yourself” – Pema Chodron “Be the heroine of our life, Not the victim.” Nora Ephron
