"Clean" living gets such a bad rep., and really doesn't encompass my approach, which is why I call it "intentional" living. Does it fuel me, add nutrition to my life, help center me and make it smoother for me to be the best version of myself?
My body went through a lot of trauma in the first 25 years of my life. For the first 18 years I unknowingly suffered from severe food intolerances. As I was coming out of healing those intolerances and into my post-grad life, my dad died of cancer & heart failure. I wrote in detail about it here, This is also when I became a spin instructor and a Beautycounter consultant.
Through my experiences, recovery, certifications, and passion for learning I learned the impact of how we interact with our own bodies. The things that we put in and on our bodies and minds, and the ways that we move our bodies have a big impact. When we use products that help us instead of hurting us, we feel better from the inside out.
I do the digging and the learning, so you can simply ask me for help.
I grew up knowing I wanted to be a teacher. In 2nd grade, a friend turned to me and asked, "what do you want to be when you grow up?" -- my response came to fruition 13 years later when I became a kindergarten teacher right there in my own elementary school.
Now, let me tell you. I did not think I wanted to be a kindergarten teacher, but it turns out kindergarten and I were made for each other. I absolutely LOVED this age. The challenges, the innocence, the pure intentions... all of it.
So why did I leave the classroom? Because I'm on a mission to impact more than 25 families per year. My strategies, my learnings, my tips, tools & "tricks" are meant to be shared not only with my class of the year, but also with you, too.
