Feeling out of control and hitting walls is exhausting besides painful! Most of my life I was able to put my head down and get what needed to be done each day, each week, each year! I was strong, focused and felt there would always be a way to accomplish my goals. Then after two car accidents that triggered my autoimmune into full-blown chronic pain, life took a turn – found myself having to evaluate what is most urgent and learn how to manage best I could. Some days there was little movement. My life went from being the one who served, supported and was strong to being the one who was fragile and dependent. This has not only been painful physically but a mental challenge to overcome. Too frequently, I found myself having unkind, discouraging self-talk, and dwelling on what I couldn’t do anymore.
Luckily, I had started speaking in the wellness world shortly before the first accident happened. My first twenty years of working in the professional salon world, I had helped many sort out perplexing skin discomforts. I had learned much from my family and my own skin issues. My mother struggled with eczema all her life. We both had allergies and very sensitive skin; but I also had cystic acne, rosacea and developed psoriasis while working in the professional beauty field. I attended my first gluten and allergy free conference as a consumer and left knowing I wanted to be a part of this community. After becoming a speaker for the Nourished Festival, my co-presenters came to help me understand how to assist my healing with food. Nutrition, supplementation and sourcing. I made friends who helped me learn how to cook – having been a single working mother most of my adult life, sadly I was more concerned about a full belly and not the quality of what was filling the belly. As my voyage continues, deepens, and widens, the focus has become education on maintaining best possible wellness to be proactive in my health rather than flailing in reactive mode.
Through this we learn how God does not waste pain – I have been paying attention and sharing the learnings from my journey and all the others I have been “along for the ride!” It’s not like one day you wake up and say – Let’s try an elimination diet or be “gluten free”….it is usually after an illness, accident or not being as strong as they desire that people start to feel overwhelmed – feel that there has to be something else to try or follow to to help themselves SIMPLY feel or be better?
That’s where we are more powerful together. Our power comes when we connect. Now it’s my turn to return the favor of helping others find options. Simply sharing strategies of what helped me – has helped others to investigate alternate eating lifestyles, what you bring into your home and wellness choices to bring comfort to your life. Assist you in honing your food prep and cooking skills! As a LifeStyle Mentor I can help you stay accountable to your goals. This “partnership” will help you:
- Effectively Communicate
- Strategize Realistic Plan For You & Your Family
- Set Your Priorities & Goals
- Support From a Friend/Mentor to Stay Accountable along the Journey
- Not Feel Alone! Support keeping your self-talk encouraging!
I have been speaking, writing and mentoring using my “cliff notes” which can get you up to speed quickly on possible other choices, protocols and alternative eating lifestyles. Resources to help you shop affordably for safe & effective home cleaning, essential oils, food, laundry, personal care, produce, and supplements. Leverage my connections and years of experience. There is hope – sometimes elusive when you are finding your day two steps forward and three back….but that is why having a partner helps.
I am a daughter who helped care for my mother for 19 years, a mother of 4 adults and blessed grandmother of 7 beautiful children. Single mom for 21 years before meeting my prince – who has walked with me, side by side as promised through sickness and health. We have been navigating allergies, autoimmune disease, cancer, chronic pain, disability, skin issues and thriving after surviving two life changing car accidents. I feel like have graduated from the University of Hard Knocks with multiple degrees!
My career started in the Professional Beauty Industry, then transitioned into Social Networking with a decade in Fashion helping people with Total Image Consulting. My focus moved to the Wellness Arena when I learned how to help people Sleep More Restoratively. Since becoming gluten free, clean eating, and a Bone Broth enthusiast, those that witnessed my transformation asked me to share my life enhancing secrets on stage, online and one-to-one. It has been an exciting 40 years educating, writing, speaking, mentoring and becoming an Amazon Best-Selling Author.
