I missed 20% of my elementary school years, due mostly to my congenital asthmatic bronchitis mixed in with digestive challenges and chronic pain. As a teenager, a tumor the size of a grapefruit was removed from my breast. For sake of space, I’ll just add, I also had speech problems and (have) dyslexia to that list. I was a pretty insecure little girl … well into my adult life! Life wasn’t always this beautifully flowing for me.
The last 3 decades have been spent researching ways to advocate my ultimate health, as well as for my three daughters, when i wasn’t running my advertising agency.
I experienced MAJOR life changes in the last 90 days of 2009 that brought me to a place of devastation (I was DONE!) and then through God’s grace found deliverance, my purpose and passion to guide others to a better life and healthier lifestyle. That was only 5 short years ago. I awakened (due to my circumstances) to my TRUE purpose and crafting my adversities into advantages. I invested in certification programs and coaching so that I could help others live a bigger, healthier and happier life.
