I believe we all deserve to feel beautiful in our bodies, balanced in our minds, and with those things have the confidence to boldly pursue our life’s purpose. My goal is to help you find that without going vegan or giving up all your worldly possessions…unless you want to.
Well, not very long ago I had a killer job in finance and was living the crazy-fun lifestyle in San Francisco. But after more than a few years of 10-12 hour days and trying to keep up with my social calendar, I realized I wasn’t happy.
Something was missing and yet it would seem I had it all.
I got serious about eating real food (no more 100-calorie chips ahoy cookies), started exercising more and partying less. I felt better but still not my best. Then I found the love of my life and let me tell you, having another person to deal with after a long, hard day can teach you a lot about yourself.
I realized the real culprit holding me back from feeling my best at all times was STRESS. When I was stressed my nutrition was off, exercise was overlooked and my most important relationships suffered.
I FIND THAT STRESS, REAL OR PERCEIVED, IS AT THE ROOT OF 90% OF PEOPLE’S DIS-EASE.
I started incorporating more self-care like yoga, meditation, and scheduling alone time. Life seemed a heck of a lot easier, but the best part was that I gained clarity around my career path.
My job in finance paid well, I was good at it and I liked the people I worked with, but it was NOT fulfilling anymore. In fact, it was draining the life out of me. A couple of self-help books and a lot of soul searching later I discovered I had a passion for health and wellness. If I didn’t work in finance I’d be cooking healthy meals and studying nutrition books all day.
I had no idea how to make a living doing that, but guess what…the universe delivered! I randomly heard about this thing called a health coach. And even more there was a renowned school where I could get certified. A week later I was enrolled at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
