A little about me...
Health in the mind and body has been a part of me my entire life. The desire to spread joy and wellness breathes in me and I can’t help but try to share that with everyone I come in contact with, no matter where I am. I lived in emotional pain and then I found running. Running saved my life. I wouldn’t be who I am if I hadn’t ever laced up my running shoes. My running shoes never judged me, they let me be free. They let me be me. They help me be the best version of me, still. My job now, through wellness, is to help people have that same experience - Health Unleashes Greatness #HUG.
For as long as I can remember…
I’ve had an affinity towards wellness. Life has thrown several health challenges to myself and to loved ones over the years. So, at a young age I began to understand sickness and the healing process. I developed a strong empathetic nature and also a curiosity for the things that promote healing. Movement, nutrition, and space to work on the mind, are the main ingredients that I have found that unleashes the greatness in all of us if we work on them. I’ve experienced a lot, seen a lot, and have tried to learn a lot in order to help people become the best versions of themselves.
There was a time when it felt like I’d only been in this field for just a few years and it was a desperate quest to learn everything I could in order to provide the best service I could. That quest has been ongoing for over 15 years, now! When I love something and am interested in it, I’m all in.
