I have always loved being active and doing my best to live a healthy lifestly. Overtime that translated to being proactive about my metal, physical and nutritional health. I knew I loved helping others, and wanted to encourage them to live their best lives. I have a B.S. in Exercise Science with an emphasis in Exercise and Wellness.
I had actually planned to do dental hygiene and decided that was not really something I would feel satisfied doing. I thought long and hard about my passions: physical health, mental health, and helping others. I was not sure exactly what I wanted to do with this, but I instantly fell in love with the idea of the wellness industry and wanted to continue learning, growing and helping others do the same.
