In 2004, I was overweight and unhappy in my corporate job. My days were full of deadlines and commitments that were not motivating to me. I was not savoring life because of my work and my weight. Something had to change.
For the first time, I began considering what I wanted out of my life and started making decisions for me. In the following year, I lost over 30 pounds and helped my mom, a chronic dieter who weighed between 130 and 200 pounds multiple times in her life, take control over her weight for the first time ever…at the age of 56! It was, and still is one of the most inspiring feelings I ever had in my life. I left my corporate job to go back to learn how to effectively use movement and nutrition to enable others to enjoy their happiest lives possible…and I’ve never looked back.
I now view every day as an opportunity for me to improve someone’s life through the food they eat and the exercises they perform. It’s not about perfection, it’s about progress – building a sustainable relationship with your food, fitness and bodies so you can enjoy all that life has to offer. I welcome you to contact me today to discuss how I can be of service to you in your journey to savor life everyday.
