To help women achieve empowerment through healthy bodies and minds.
Strong Mind, Strong Body
Choose empowerment. Where there's a will, there's a way. Embrace movement. Celebrate change. Pursue positivity. Glorify enthusiasm. Care deeply. Commit to yourself. Tune into your body. Get outdoors. Soak up the sunshine. Grow things. Eat plants. Speak louder than your fears. Be authentically you. Prize integrity. Knowledge is power. Create your life. Happiness is homemade. Believe in yourself...you've got this.
When I started this business in 2010, I felt a calling to help others, specifically women, become healthy and empowered. To me, empowerment means really understanding nutrition, because there are so many trends, fads, MLM companies selling shakes and supplements, mega-mogul weight loss companies advertising day and night, pharmaceutical "cures" and conflicting nutritional information coming out weekly that folks are understandably confused and frustrated. At the beginning of my heath and wellness career back in 2001, the questions I kept hearing from clients over and over again were, "What's true? Which information do I trust? Why hasn't anything worked for me in the past?" So many felt hopeless. Once I found empowerment I knew I'd never go back, and I made it my mission to help others on their journey through nutritional education, daily support, motivation, lifestyle change and problem-solving. True transformation is my specialty.
I have 20 years experience in the health and wellness field, beginning my career as a yoga instructor. I'm a certified Personal Trainer and Lifestyle & Weight Management Coach, as well as a Diabetes Prevention Counselor. I am certified through Cornell University in Plant-Based Nutrition, and graduated with honors from the Academy of Culinary Nutrition's rigorous education and training program as a Professional Culinary Nutritionist.
I started my blog in 2010 and it's currently read in 12 countries. I've also been inducted into the American Culinary Federation as a Special Diets Instructor.
All my experience has helped me to transform my own life and lives of many others. Are you ready to live The InnerStrength Life?
