Behind the person

My journey

After struggling to find happiness in what I do and the excitement of waking up every day, I finally gave myself the self-care I needed to live the life I wanted. One filled with happiness, health, and success.

I felt so empowered, free, and alive that I decided I needed to help others do the same.

My journey led me to lead a mindful, eco-minimalist, toxin-free, and vegan lifestyle where I focus on only doing things that help me get to where I want to go and how I want to feel. I focus on eliminating the clutter in my life and business. I strategize to maximize my brain power for the most important things in life, like being present during family time, while creating routines and systems for everything else so the tedious tasks run on autopilot.

To truly empower myself to feel and live my best, I am also a certified sports nutritionist and personal trainer focused on a plant-based, gluten-free lifestyle. Knowledge is power. 

Join me on the simple living revolution.
