I’ve been where you are

We decide the food we eat, the clothes we wear, our inner circle, our worth… every thought shapes our reality. That’s a big lesson to learn and it takes some practice. Since I breathe sharing my passion and empowering others to nourish their gorgeous bodies, shake their sexy behinds in Zumba®, and show them the ability of manifestation, intention, and affirmation, I must have been born with the know-how, right?

Not exactly. I had to work at it just like everybody else. I had the career I was really good at, but I wasn’t living life the way I wanted. The way I dreamed. I wasn’t the picture of health. They say it takes a huge event in your life to finally get hit in the head with the realization our bodies are fragile. HELLO Auto Immune Disease!

At 28, I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. Ya, I had my pity party, my anger phase, my WTF I’m way too freaking young. It went on for three more years like this. A working mom with 3 beautiful kids, with ZERO energy, bad bad bad skin, and no sparkle. Then I left my job to take care of my kids and consequently had no money.

It’s pretty lonely down at rock bottom. Feeling terrible, not looking so hot, and living with spit up on you. But guess what? I wouldn’t change a single thing! Not my colitis diagnosis, not quitting my job, not even the spit up clothes. Because all those things led me to this and what is yet to come.

Today, my friends, students, and clients describe me as extremely energetic, compassionate, and say I have a perma-smile, especially on the Zumba® floor. What a powerful change a mind shift can have. I have energy, I control my colitis not the other way around, I am surrounded by a huge, ever-growing circle of people I love, and have discovered my connection to the universe.

Discovering my connection to the universe

You see, one day I began to think, maybe I am the creator of my own destiny. Just maybe, what I do on a daily basis from the way I eat, the way I exercise, the way I think, the way I breathe, all contribute to the way I feel. I learned to take baby steps to find myself again and now lead the life I choose. I became a Nutrition & Wellness Specialist, a Reiki practitioner, a meditation lover, ZUMBA® Fitness instructor, a black belt in Taekwon-Do, and for the first time…passionately being my own boss in the field of wellness.

This is the life I have laid out in front of me.  But here’s the best part, not only am I the healthiest and most fit I’ve been in my whole life, I get to do what I love every day, and am blessed to work with a network of people who are doing the same… I get to help others unleash their awesomeness!

ready to be a wellness-preneur?

Nutrition + exercise + mind/body connection is essential to our overall wellbeing.

I took all of these elements and combined them with a proven business model to pull it all together.

If you’re willing to put in the work, the time, and have a never-ever-give-up attitude, owning your own business is the best decision one can possibly make.

I’ve learned these lessons the hard way. I can say the part that lights up my life the most besides freedom to make my own choices, creating, manifesting, seeing the brilliance in others, knowing I made a difference, giving back, growing my finances, and helping others be awesome… is partnering with women who are ready to do the same!
