After my initial success in the world of online business, I found a passion for health and wellness. I needed to get my body and mind right, so in my typical fashion, I went about doing so with a laser focus. I became an expert in my own body and soon dropped 75 pounds! I couldn’t believe it when women started coming up to me to ask how to trim down and look good.
I took it as an invitation to find a way to help other women from my heart - and so my first coaching business was born. I got certified in health and nutrition and I did face-to-face health and fitness coaching. The women I worked with got great results and before I knew it my business had grown beyond my imagination.
