It's the first one is the thoughts you think, okay. And the reason I say that is you can take all the ashwagandha in the world, but if you are in a fear based negative state of mind, and if that story or racket or whatever you want to call it in your head is a constant negative narrative, you're not going to be motivated to work out, you're not gonna be motivated to take care of body to eat well.

But if you're really trying to have a goal of health and wellness, then surrounding yourself with people who are also on that same journey is really important as well.

Really ensuring that you're having great food. And I think living by the 80-20 rule has enabled that for me, really, you know, 80% of time, I eat really great food. And on weekends. If I want licorice, and I want a glass of wine and I want to go with my friends and have a great meal I let myself do that.


Since I was a young girl, my weight and size were something I was aware of teased relentlessly and ostracized from my peers, food became my comfort. Food never made fun of me or excluded me. Then as a young teen, I experienced heavy, painful periods, acne, weight gain and mood swings. Like many young girls my age, I was put on the birth control pill. Around that time, I fell into the trap of obsessive dieting and exercise, which led to my 20-year battle with the eating disorder Bulimia. I believed if I could just be smaller and fit like the girls in the magazines, I would finally find contentment.

A further psychological impact, was a result of my choice, to enter fitness competitions for over 13-years. That, and continued use of the IUD, resulted in hormonal imbalance and cycles of severe weight gain and loss.

In an “Ah-ha” moment 9 years ago, I finally took action to change my behaviours, patterns, and life. However, even as I took all the necessary steps to heal my relationship with food and my body, I was still having physical side effects from my years of continuous dieting, synthetic hormones, and high stress.

My body had stopped responding, I was gaining weight, suffering from exhaustion, insomnia, a non-existent sex drive, cravings, and mild depression. My whole body felt like it had turned on me.

So I started working on my nutrition, natural support supplements, daily movement, stress management, and sleep habits. Over time, I was able to finally find balance. As someone who has experienced the frustration of extreme hormonal imbalance, I knew that I wanted to help others who felt the same hopelessness. As a trainer and a coach, I was able to work with clients one-on-one, and address their needs through nutrition, movement, stress management, and sleep.
