Inspired by my own struggles with self-esteem and body image, I’ve dedicated myself to helping others other women get connect to their creator and their bodies for more self-worth, purpose, and joy.
Struggling with My Health
At 30 years old, I had my first cholesterol test with a shocking 300+ result. After 6 months of moderate dietary changes, my primary care physician recommended a statin medication.
By 35, in addition to suffering from reduced muscle recovering and memory loss as a result of regular use of a statin med, I was 40 pounds overweight, suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, and chronic rhinitis.
Missing my active lifestyle and feeling frustrated by the increasing cost and side effects of my medications, I sought to drastically improve my health.
At 38, I lost my father to chronic illness. I also lost my oldest brother to cancer. In my grief, I gained not only the 20 pounds I had lost, but an additional 40 pounds.
But I made the decision that I wasn’t going to waste away like my father had or die before 50 like my brother had. Their deaths fueled my passion for radical diet and lifestyle changes.
Uncovering My Trauma
I became an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and started working with other women who wanted to improve their health.
I came to realize that I had an unhealthy relationship with food, because I had an unhealthy relationship with myself. I’ve learned–and am continuing to learn–how to love myself and love my body.
But I continued to struggle with hormones, emotional eating, gut issues, dieting, not dieting… You name it.
I’ve learned how to listen to my body for signs of trauma and to help heal my relationship to God, to myself, and to my food.
On a Mission
Now in my late forties, I’m healthier than I was in my mid-twenties living an active lifestyle with my husband, stepdaughter, horses, and dogs in the Florida panhandle. I’m 60+ pounds lighter and getting in the best shape of my life.
I’m on a mission to bring the Divine feminine back to the Christian faith and help other women find the joy I’ve found. I want to inspire and teach other women how to love their bodies and repair their relationship to food.
There’s a better way to live. I’m living proof, and you can be too.
