Do you walk around feeling tired and stressed?
I sure did. In my former life, I worked over 80 hours a week building a financial tech company with my husband, I was super stressed, anxious, and beyond exhausted, but just kept going and going and going until...
At age 31, in the middle of a successful career and being a mom, I collapsed. Literally.
So began my 20-year quest to figure out the mystery of my health – and how to restore it. I paid attention to how foods made me feel, the importance of sleep and regular exercise, the effects of caffeine, the role of happiness and positive thinking. I gradually discovered what I needed to thrive – and it wasn’t medication or ice cream. Nor was it shakes, packaged foods, or beating myself up about not being smarter, thinner, or more accomplished.
Now I eat to feel great. I meditate. I listen to my body. I am kind to myself. I walk my talk.
You see, finding happiness, health, and balance isn’t about following someone else's plan. It is about finding out what truly nourishes YOU.
My journey led to me back to school where I learned how to combine holistic nutrition with my years of personal experimentation and entrepreneurial problem-solving skills. As a Certified Integrative Health Coach, I founded Healthy, Happy, and Hip to help type-A go-getters like me regain their health, vitality, and passion for life.
I continue to study all the time via courses, workshops, and conferences. A few of my passions have been Meditation, Body-Mind Coaching, Mindful Eating, Mindful Movement and Dance, and Lifestyle Medicine.
