The about me page is the most awkward part of this whole online thing for me.... So I'm going to start with telling you my story and how I made it through the path of a healer, who needed healing to become a Lifestyle Coach & Consultant. I will tell you about things I've learned and experienced so that you can get to know me for who I am and where I currently stand. 


I was not always involved with healing in the professional stance, but maybe one from a more personal side. My life career started in Customer Retention, Business Management and Business Reformation. During my transition up the leadership ladder I had many experiences that helped shape who I am now and showed me a side of humanity that so many of us don't see point blank anymore. A side where so many of us hurt yet keep going and for some we don't know why, the side that needs an ear, heart and hug in our path to healing. This is one of the many reasons I work now in helping others manage their life and direct it back to the illuminated path your soul seeks.  

 These lessons were emotionally impactful on me. As I was going through an awakening of abusive behaviors from friends, co-workers, family, bosses and myself. I was not prepared for what the world was, I was so Ignorant I made myself sick unknowingly and you might be too, do you feel tired , drained, stuck or just numb? This is a powerful statement from your own mind and body. Surprisingly, on an intuitive level I knew what was wrong and it wasn't just cancer, it was my food, the people I was around and the unknowing damage my family had imprinted on me as a child.


I had been feeling off for several months, I was tired and drained. I was getting burse's, and became short of breath. I instantly thought what's wrong with me... I started to look at myself and into the symptoms, I found that low iron in the blood had similar symptoms, so... I started a plant based Iron Liquid and started to try and get in the sun more and push my cardio. It helped, I started to feel better but it didn't last long, just long enough to get help. One morning I woke to the feeling that if I did not get help I would die that day. I was out of it, and I mean in and out of consciousness.  I called at the time the only person I could think of that my son would open the door for if I couldn't. His father, who worked in a building with zero reception, by the grace of my angles he was guided out of the building at the same time I was calling. This was one miracle in many over the course of my life. I have been lucky to be watched over with divine intervention to many could haves.  

I ended up with APL Leukemia that July morning and was stabilized and shipped to a hospital that was better equipped for cancer. This was a battle for me, I spent over 45 days in medical care fighting for my life with a dozen plus doctors, family and friends who supported me and my family during the scariest time in my life at the time and for that I will always be grateful. During the first part of my stay, I was approached by a doctor, who seemed to be very nervous he educated me... a lot that day. The things he said led me down this path of learning and educating others, he said that not only can my mind create health issues out of survival, but that also my Environment had a big impact on my physical body things in this world are made of convenience and with that comes a price. I was shocked by the way he told me, and as I thought on it more, it made sense to me. Even growing up I heard, " your body is a temple" a physical temple for spirit, if it is polluted why would spirit come.... to me spirit is peace, grace, love and compassion that leads you on your path safely. 


This " rabbit hole" was the reignition to a flame, deep within my soul, cancer, the fear of leaving my child and a soul deep knowing I had purpose had reconnected me with my "Quarks", and put me on the path of change for the betterment of who I am in whole. Because of this major life event, I had begun to take Action in a Lifestyle, I had known for years yet neglected out of ignorance. It was my own lack of Will Power that brought me where I was at this time, and I knew that deep down, it was only me who could help myself gain that will and drive to change. I started a whirlwind of changes and started a massive process of educating myself in every way I could and I want you to know you can too and more than anything you deserve to.

I started by focusing on learning about me, my spirit,  my body and how and when I felt my best. I was given the opportunity to change careers and became dedicated to learning about Nutrition and Body Wellness from what you eat, to products you use on your body, to the physical activity you give your body. Luckily I was blessed to have someone see my new potential and I started working with an MMA gym. I loved it, I loved everything about it, the people were funny, hard working and dedicated to being the best they could be, they taught me it's okay to be human and I needed that more than  I knew, now that I look back at my memories of such good, fun, and accomplishing times. I was so empowered by knowing I was making a change.

I was fortunate to work with some of the best MMA fighters that Norther Utah had seen at that time, and even more blessed to help some in their process to their First Victory. These memories remind me to tell you, you can make change, there will be those that believe in you. I know that I will always be grateful for the MMA Family I earned during that part of my life. I've lived through Cancer, Grew from Childhood Trauma, Religious and Social Ritual Abuse and Survived Domestic Violence from my Veteran Husband, Neglect from the Medical System and Social System when I needed it most... Sadly, this is widely the case for so many. I am lucky to still be here and I am Grateful Everyday for that. 

It was through my life’s experiences, both good and bad that I knew, I wanted to help others achieve their goals, their dreams, and live the best life. Knowing they are supported and heard along the way. I work hard to meet the individual needs of my clients. In return, I work diligently with each client to create a program that helps them achieve their goals and start living a life they love.
