Just a small town girl from the woods
I grew up in Alaska (you can see me on Railroad Alaska Season 2) spending a good chunk of time traveling by four-wheeler and snow machine in below zero weather (sometimes 60 below). I grew up in a solar house, hauled water and lived off the land.
I've been in abusive + toxic relationships my entire life including the most important one - the relationship with myself.
I would look at magazines; have pictures plastered on my wall, dreaming of what everyone wants - a toned tummy, to not have to cover up with sweaters, eat whatever I wanted and still look and feel fabulous.
The first to snag the newest diet book or trend, I was always worrying about what I was eating, always trying to control it. Secretly at night, I would binge eat on whatever I could find.
I was miserable, unhappy and let's be honest - I was depressed.
I spent years learning about nutrition, healing, practicing yoga and more importantly, learned to love myself. I am talkin' real love. To be okay with being alone, looking in the mirror and really loving + accepting what I saw. To be my own best friend and to have a BLAST with MYSELF.
Throughout this journey called life I started college a dozen times to eventually finish and graduate with a Bachelors (and be the first in my family - wahoo). I spent several years working in the financial industry in the corporate world where I was highly successful and broke records. I had transformed my health and everything seemed perfect on paper and yet I was still miserable.
I knew I was meant for something big. I have felt it since I was a child. So I decided to quit my corporate toxic job and be true to my calling and myself. I have lived a life of EVERY type of abuse, serious medical & health issues, weight + hormone problems, confidence issues, emotional eating and have OVERCOME + SURVIVED every single one of them. I am a SURVIVOR and PROUD. I share this to show others that life happens, just because certain things happen it does not mean you are destined for that life. I am living proof that it is possible!
After becoming a Board Certified Holistic Health + Wellness Practitioner and working with clients 1:1, I realized I wanted to reach more people. I wanted to help people worldwide and as a side bonus, make money in my sleep. Through working in Corporate and then coaching 1:1 clients something remained consistent and that was I wasn't making money unless I showed up. I wanted to be able to be anywhere in the world, help people, create my own schedule and again, make money in my sleep. And that's exactly what I did.
I found the power of essential oils and spent a year helping my body feel better with essential oils and products. It changed my life completely in every way. I now help others do the same globally and it has brought me a tremendous amount of happiness. I work with a very large team spread all across the world and this is my dream come true.
As a Personal Trainer + Board Certified Health & Wellness Practitioner & my entire life experience, my mission is to help others heal and love life naturally.
I am here to love + nurture + listen + help heal you.
