When I was 9 years old, I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. 3 years later, I very suddenly and unexpectedly lost my father to a heart attack. After battling a binge eating disorder and deep depression while ballooning up to 200 lbs with my diabetes out of control for more than 8 years, I decided it was time to fight back in order to live the life I finally believed that I deserved after so many years of lack of self-love, hopelessness and low self-worth.
I put myself through a rigorous personal training school program (500 hours over 6 months!), earned my Bachelors degree in Nutrition Science, got myself in the best shape of my life, and created a successful Lifestyle Entrepreneur business doing what I love...helping others find their true selves through the gift of self-love and our power of choice. I strongly believe we all have the power to turn adversity into advantage, and I've dedicated my life to teaching others how to do exactly that.
