About Me

Throughout my own journey, I struggled with obesity, anxiety, heartbreak, lack of confidence, depression, and a sense of loneliness.  


I felt like a victim to my weight gain. I hated my body. I felt alone and frustrated.  


And I was jealous of others and thought they had everything I didn’t… 

An Athletic Body 

Good Looks
 
Confidence
  


So one day, I decided to make a small change to my eating habits and lifestyle. Not really expecting to lose weight but...  


6 months later, after previously weighing in at 293lbs, my heaviest, I was shocked to see that I HAD LOST 20 LBS! I couldn’t believe it!  


Those small changes really worked! And the best part was that I was not following a restrictive diet. That’s when I realized I can lose weight and still enjoy the foods I love.  


I decided to build on my good habits. I continued to educate myself on how to live and maintain a healthy lifestyle...because now I had the PROOF I could do it!  


The result?
I am now down 130lbs and have kept it off for 10 years!


  But losing that weight was only the beginning of my journey.

  
I thought that if I lost my weight, I would automatically become successful in other areas of life. And while getting physically healthier was a great first step towards my goals, I was still missing self-love, confidence, and peace of mind.  


It was then I realized all the inner work that still needed to be done.

 
 That started me on my next path. I studied 1000+ hours of videos, books, counseling, meditative practices, and inspirational speakers on how to live my best life.  


And NOW I am healthy, mindful, at peace, confident, optimistic, excited in my life…and I can't wait to get YOU there, too!
