Want to live healthy on your own terms?
The first thing I want you to know is that this website isn’t about cancer, it’s about living a vibrant life regardless of your circumstances.
I’m here to teach you how to redefine healthy for yourself so you can start living on your own terms and feeling energized and happy every day.
In December 2010, my dog Zoe walked on top of me while I was laying on the couch – something she never does.
She immediately started pawing at my left breast and I felt a lump.
A few weeks later, I was diagnosed with breast cancer.
I’m a certified health coach. How can a health coach wind up with breast cancer?
I was shocked.
Looking at my naked reflection in the mirror after the diagnosis, I felt like a fool that didn’t appreciate her body. My body had given birth (at home, no less) to three healthy children, and had run multiple half marathons.
Now, this same body was going to go through cancer.
After the diagnosis, I decided I wasn’t going to be a victim. Cancer sucked, but I was going to make it suck less.
Learn how and why it applies to you, even if you’ve never had cancer.
It was time to show myself incredible self-care. Cancer was my avenue to a whole new level of self-love, and the first step was new rituals and thought patterns.
By going through cancer treatment, all the nonsense fell away and the important things emerged: Living a happy, healthy, loving life and feeling my absolute best as often as possible.
Now, as a healthy living advocate, author, speaker and certified health coach, it’s my mission to teach people how to redefine healthy and be the happiest, healthiest versions of themselves.
Ready to live your best life, whether you’re dealing with a chronic illness or simply the stress of every day life?
I didn’t grow up healthy. Dinner was usually meat and potatoes – maybe a canned vegetable – and I thought cake from scratch meant opening a box of Duncan Hines.
In my first job out of college, I was an account supervisor at an ad agency and my biggest client was a major fast-food brand. How’s that for irony?
Breakfast was usually a pastry and coffee, lunch was a sandwich from the local deli, and “dinner” was appetizers from a local bar while having drinks with coworkers.
what i do
I was always known as the healthiest girl in the room: I ate right, exercised, grew my own organic vegetables, and even birthed my kids naturally at home.
After my diagnosis, my perspective on health changed and I had to redefine what it means to be healthy and how I could feel my best as a person with unique needs.
As a healthy living advocate, certified health coach, breast cancer survivor, author and speaker, I write books and give talks that inspire people to live their healthiest, happiest lives through practical nutrition and lifestyle tools.
