Background Blurb

 

 headshotcirclecrop  I started this blog in 2013 as a way to document my thoughts and life happenings. It’s helping me learn more about myself and how beautifully similar I am to others and yet just as unique. The purpose of this blog is to support wellness and record my journey in finding opportunities to always nourish the mind, body and spirit.  I am a complex girl with one simple rule…do what makes you truly happy!

 

In 2014 I earn my B.S. in Exercise Science, and since then I have earned two Masters degrees,one in Organizational Leadership and another in Aging & Neuroscience.

I also completed my yoga teacher training summer 2016 (one of the most illuminating experiences by far) and continue to practice and teach. In 2017 I spent time in India and Africa teaching English and yoga while thinking about what I want my vocation to be.

I am passionate about healthy living and empowering vitality! I  am an allergy friendly health foodie (gluten intolerant, lactose intolerant, soy & legume allergies w/ sulfite sensitivity as well). I was quite sick for some years before realizing (with the help of chiropractic care) that food would become my medicine and my window into holistic approaches to living well. It’s been an interesting journey and the most important lesson I’ve learned is to appreciate every step of the way. My diet can be best described as whole food plant based.

 In my last couple years of undergraduate school  I went from 170 to 135 lbs through applying the health science knowledge I had gained, both in and out of school, to my own personal life. I continue learning more about healthful living everyday and I want to share that passion. The intrinsic rewards of self-study, mindfulness and meditation are the gates to infinite light and possibilities for us all.

This blog is my own personal way of sharing my passion for seeking and connecting.

I am now in my first year of chiropractic school (Fall 2017)! Of all the specialties I’ve seen and worked with, chiropractic medicine has been such a gift for myself and my loved ones. I’m excited and eager to dedicate my life’s work to sharing holistic approaches to health and living well. I also plan to learn other forms of alternative medicine and share as much as I can along the way, making positive sustainable change. 

Live well. Love well. Be well.

Namaste,

    Hello my wonderful cousin! Your mamma shared this on Facebook and I had to come over and take a peek. This is so great and kudos to you for sharing your journey with the world. I’m looking forward to some of your recipes and let me know if you need any help with the technical /design details of your blog – your cousin is a WordPress nerd :). I started my own blog over at islandgirlonafarm.com but only have a few posts up :). Love you!
