About Me…

It’s funny how life happens when you are busy making plans. My own life was thrown a curve ball 17 years ago…

You know how people view life based on stages? “BS/AS” (before or after high school/college), “BC” (before or after children), S or M (single vs. married life).  For me, it was a different “BC”. Before/after chemo and cancer (AML).  BC, I considered myself “fit” and I ate lean.  AC, fit was not good enough. I learned my “lean” diet was poorly lacking. I started reading labels vigorously and attempted to limit the number of foods with labels on them. Wellness became my primary goal, nutrition became my medicine, and God became my guide.  This came about as a result of exhausting the monetary limit to find a bone marrow donor 5X over (never found one & the odds were not in my favor) and realizing it was up to me and the wonderful docs at MD Anderson to fight the cancer battle. Wellness took on a new meaning and evenings were spent learning what was within my ability to impact. By the grace of God, the prayers and support many amazing angels on earth, my doc/nurse at MDA, and some killer chemo, I’m here today to live and love life, one day at a time.

Don’t get me wrong, “BC” I was not a slacker. I am a workout girl. Movement was and is an integral part of my world.  My happy hours consist of lifting, cycling hills, running trails (& getting lost), paddle boarding, setting a new PR, or doing an insane workout with like-minded friends.   “BC” I ate “lean” but the reality was that my choices were too acidic and chemically laden.

My friends describe me as a wellness role model—while my kids describe me as a certified health nut. (They love to tease me about gluten-free this & that, and get a kick out of changing my user name on Netflix to something teasing me about healthy pursuits.) I believe the key to success in any endeavor is consistency—not perfection. I follow the Catholic schoolgirl diet: eat like an angel 6 days a week, but on the 7th day, make the devil blush! The majority of the time I do strive to eat healthy and clean.

I’m a business analyst by day–but at night, I play the role of mom/athlete/trainer/cancer survivor advocate.

Sharing what I have learned and what I continue to learn, along with the mistakes I’ve made along the way is my goal for this site. If I can help you or anyone you care about make small changes in the wellness journey that transform your health and/or your life, I’d be honored– and thrilled.

I hope you will join me on this lifelong journey of learning, improvement, wellness and passion.  After all, “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning how to dance in the rain.”   Sometimes the steps don’t make sense, but we have to keep moving and moving together sure helps. Like Newton says, “A body in motion stays in motion” so use this site to help you find or keep your motion.

Live strong. Be fit. Laugh often. And smile.
