Makin' my way thru life the best way I can–feelings, fitness, food and more!
You know this isn't a about credentials (although, I've included my standard bio below for those who need it), it's about life and how one lives it. I've gone around and round with this blog and it's evolved over the years, just like I have! It started out as my "safe place" to log about my journey of coping through my new normal of not having my Mom after she passed away. It then became a place I shared my experiences of running and how it's positively impacted my life. This "About Me" section perplexes me though, still. I'm always a work in progress...I'm continually on that journey and will be until the day I my soul leaves this earth. I'm human, I'm spiritual, I'm a runner/jogger/walker/workout-er, I'm an executive workin' gal, I'm a lover, I'm a fighter, I'm SO many things that this one section can't accommodate or express. To know me is to invest time in me...this is just a snippet of who I am, but I welcome you into it!
I earned my Bachelors and Masters of Arts from Saint Mary’s College of California, shortly after I became a certified Holistic Health Coach through IIN (Institute of Integrative Nutrition in NYC), a former WeightWatchers Leader and currently working towards completing other certifications. I've always had a passion to help people and now I've found a way to live out my vocation through helping others find/live their own healthy lifestyle. My best background in the subject matter of Health/Fitness comes based on my own personal experience of shedding over 160 lbs. You can find me wandering the many miles of the San Francisco Bay Area or virtually at the following:
