When I was a kid I would have loved to have Caramel treats in my lunch. I was raised with a food conscious mother who allowed only certain sugary treats in our lunch and Jo Louis and Caramel treats were both off limits. I have a weakness for caramel, so when I realized I could […]
After the birth of my first child in 2003 I decided to work from home and beMy first business was a natural parenting boutique and online store where I sold items to new parents to make their baby-raising years as natural and chemical free as possible. I was hit by the entrepreneurial bug after this experience and knew that I wanted to coach people to make their life healthy, happy and easy while raising a health conscious family.
In 2006 I had my second child, and two weeks later graduated with my Master’s in Health Studies where I focused my studies on mental health in the Aboriginal Youth population. I continued to assist Canada’s First Nation communities with developing, evaluating and understanding their children’s and maternal health programs.
In 2008 I had my last child, sold my online baby store and began focusing on direct sales where I became a leader and built the first team in my local city.
I had a diagnosis of cervical cancer and my life took on an entire new meaning. I had surgery in 2011 and then started my own raw food journey, which started by reading Colin T. Campbell’s book The China Study. I drank my first green smoothie in March 2012 and I’ve never looked back. I started organizing local events at my home regarding health by having juicing parties, documentary days, special guest speakers and healthy potlucks. I knew there was a local interest in connecting with healthy, like-minded individuals.
In 2013 I decided to become a Certified Health Coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition after spending 14 years working in the social service field. I opened my coaching practice with a few clients and held regular kitchen classes.
I will be launching my first book in 2014 and continue to provide private and group coaching programs, online events, kitchen classes and corporate workshops.
