A little about me

I’m a 35-year-old mother of one and new wife, who was headed straight down the path of disease, early death, and missing the purpose the Universe has for me because of how unhealthy my mind and body was. In December 2010, I made the decision to change my lifestyle by jumping into the world of Crossfit and learning how to change my relationship with food. What has followed is 135 pounds lost and much, much more! I learned how to respect the body I have been given, and I began to learn how to fuel it with food and take steps to overcome a lifetime of emotional eating.

Along the journey to a better lifestyle, I became a victim of sexual assault on more than one occasion. This turned my world upside down in many ways. Instead of letting it cause me to have the victim mentality, I chose to enter intensive PTSD trauma therapy. It opened wounds, explored pieces of my history I had hoped were long forgotten, and taught me how to clear the old patterns that were beginning to repeat themselves. This work took a massive toll on my health and spun me into full on autoimmune flares caused by rampant EBV and other factors. I am still recovering from all of this as part of my journey and am getting stronger each and every day.  You can also read about my battle as an Achalasia patient through this site.  I also was diagnosed with Binge Eating Disorder and am in ongoing recovery.

This journey has been long, hard, stressful, full of tears, full of fears and anxiety, and it has come with it’s own share of “I’ll start over tomorrow’s”. However, the steps I take each day to better myself not only add years to my life, but it serves as an example of hope to others.

My desire for you is that you will realize you can do anything you put your mind to, if you are ready. I will help you get there, along with many resources that will be available to you. If you’re ready, let’s jump in! If you’re not sure….let me help you realize that you are. Your journey will not look like mine, but my hope is that our commonalities help you realize that you are stronger than you think, and anything is possible!
