My Mission

Health & Wellness is not a task, but an opportunity given to us by God. An opportunity for us to challenge ourselves with physical, mental, social and spiritual adventures. Allow me to guide you with the necessary “living tools” to simplify health, wellness and freedom in the body. You will master your fears and transform into a freedom loving, pleasure seeking illumination. This is your four-fold opportunity to grow Healthy Inside Out!

I’m here to break-it-down! To give you the tools you need incorporated into your daily life. For a better quality of life. To keep you running at peak performance. To be the person you need to be, that you are destined to be. To empower endurance and freedom in the body, create balance, and be the best version of you. (Then secretly transform your family into a team of superheroes.

My Story
Many people start to investigate health & wellness solutions, due to health issues. I am one of those people. For years I dealt with a chronic health issue that was framed a medical mystery. (I am a genetic mutation, being a colorblind, redhead and all.) That has fueled my fire to share the trials and tribulations of my healing journey with you.

Whatever your story, I would like to help make health & wellness accessible to everyone. As a mom, wife, licensed massage therapist, certified sports nutritionist, and Celiac patient, I write about things that are important to me. My overall objective is to simplify a healthy lifestyle, teach you how to reach your goal, and encourage you to be gentle and kind with yourself when making positive changes as you grow Healthy Inside Out.

I seek to add a bit of normalcy—and deliciousness—to the lives of Celiac sufferers like myself. Having lived the overwhelming majority of my life with an “unknown ailment” and realizing that there are others like me, like my daughter, like my niece, like you, like us. Having food allergies isn’t a sentence to living life without, it’s a sentence to begin truly living your life to the fullest.

My kids are my inspiration. I want my family to grow up healthy and happy. I want my children to love REAL food, movement, and do things that cause their souls to dance. I want them to be Healthy Inside Out! They are my heart. They are my why.

I love knowledge and learning. I will continue to educate myself, sharing new insights, tips, recipes and resources along the way. Thank you so much for reading!
