Like most women, I'm many things. A mom of three, a wife of over twenty years, a business woman, holistic nutritionist, herbalist, wellness coach, and a teacher. But at heart, I'm a storyteller. Even more than that, I would say I'm a story gatherer. Stories resonate. Everyone has one, but 

it's often the stories we tell ourselves that are the most important. 

I too have a story. When I reflect back, it's always on those moments that changed me the most. Moments of quiet despair when my health was at its worst, and my Christmas letter to friends and family sounded like a goodbye. Moments when I thought, 

"I'm not going to make it through this." 
But I did. 

And of course all the good moments too. Laughing until you cry. Babies. Healing hugs. Bright smiles. Jogs down the road pushing kids as their songs drift in the air. Playing in the yard. Autumn leaves. Vacations. Sand between my toes. Grass beneath my feet. The view from the top of the mountain. 

 As I've gotten older, I'm able to reflect back on every single one of those moments, both good and bad, and recognize a pattern. When times were at their most difficult, I never gave up. Sure, I hated every second of it, but I fought through. Asking the questions that needed to be asked. Educating myself. 

Doing the work. 

I'm not sure why it's always the most difficult things that compel us forward in completely new directions. Maybe that's just how the story goes. But those challenges did something.

They pushed me to LEARN how to push back.   

Even to this day, whenever I feel weak in mind or body, I innately know it's time to build strength. Time to hit the gym. To challenge that hill. To nurture myself more. To write more. To read more. To ask the hard questions.

It's time to grow.

Being able to go through the hard stuff and not give up is an essential part of life. In every single story there's always that part when the character keeps mucking things up. When they've tried and failed, over and over again, until they just want to quit. But then something happens. Something extraordinary. And now they can never go back to the way things were before. 

They are changed forever.  

That's the work I do for myself every single day. That's the work I do in my own family. And that's the work I want to do with you. I want to help you create healthy rituals. To create a new way of living each and every day.

I want to help you write a new story. 

Every single year I am blessed to realize the important role age plays in developing wisdom and clarity. My greatest education in the field of health and wellness has been, and will continue to be, life experience.
