hey soul sis,
Some might call me a former candy addict and I'd have to agree. My husband is still shocked every time I talk about my old candy loves because I'm a completely different human today. Red sour patch kids were my fave and my Mom put my fave candies in my stocking every year. Now I get hot sauce or little salt and pepper shakers.
Sister, I was 20+ pounds heavier in 2012 and I can tell you what I weighed at every stage of life. I could tell you that I lost 4 pounds before prom or that I gained 33 pounds while pregnant with my first and only son. I could tell you that for the past 6 years I've basically weighed the exact same because I STOPPED eating sugar and started eating food that actually filled me up.
Doesn't that sound familiar?
I would eat the richest chocolate and the sweetest treats, but nothing fulfilled me. I could always eat more dessert. It took going to another country to figure out how messed up my eating habits were and how I could fix my relationship with food...but more importantly, myself.
That was then and this is now...

The women I work with are:
- DONE packing on the pounds because you are DONE hiding. No more. Not for ANYBODY.
- So sick and tired of eating your feelings because you don't know how to go through them.
- Fed up with every diet and feeling like a failure because you couldn't stick to 10 calories per day.
- Ready to release the body that keeps you in disguise.
- No longer feeling lost - you know that today is just the beginning.
- Never buying the packaged diet food again, you know that if you can't prepare it yourself, it's temporary.
Look at yourself in the mirror and repeat after me:
"it's time I get the life I know I deserve."
I was living in Seattle, by myself in a studio apartment. I LOVED my location - I walked to yoga 5 days a week and had the freedom to do anything I wanted...except I was at war with my body.
10 years of dieting, a battled eating disorder and I felt like I was wearing my body. Does that make sense?
I felt like if only the outer layers would disappear then people could see me.
I was ready to see myself. The one who I had always been but didn't have the courage to show.
No more rejecting party invites so I could sit alone watching TV eating cookies and ice cream.
I knew I needed support. I made a pact with myself that I was done bingeing and I was ready to start living. So, I enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition based in New York City.
I signed up to lose weight without dieting and that's exactly what happened. I became so obsessed with everything I was learning and was busting at the seams to tell others. I was like a sponge soaking up every guest speaker that I saw myself in their shoes one day.
I became the go-to gal for women wanting to lose weight without going on another juice cleanse or obsessing over food.
Since graduation, I've coached hundreds and hundreds of women.
ME!! I couldn't believe that the girl who was struggling for YEARS became the expert on weight loss.
I wanted more.
In early 2017 I had a baby! But the labor was far from what I imagined. 26 hours of "where the hell is this kid?" Failed vacuum. Emergency C-Section. I was a hurtin' Mama Bear. I tried EVERYTHING to heal naturally. I even traveled to Punta Gorda, Florida to attend the International School of Detoxification, where I became a Detox Specialist. This is where I learned about herbs and plant based nutrition to regenerate weak cells.
Now, some of my favorite clients are Mama's who have had C- Sections. We have a special bond and I know I can help them - emotionally, too.
Any who, off to lead my 4th sold out retreat in Suncadia, WA! But not before I launch my new podcast, In My Sweats, coming late September 2018.
Mucho gusto senorita,
Founder + CEO
