After the birth of my first son Joseph, I knew that I wanted to improve upon my health so that I would be around for him as he grew up. I became very interested in fitness and started actively working out and educating myself about nutritious food choices for myself and my growing family. Eventually I turned this into a career, becoming a Certified Personal Trainer and starting my business Empowerment, which provides in-home training and nutrition guidance for busy women.
A HUGE part of my personal and business philosophy is that health is not just physical and it is not limited to food and exercise; overall personal wellness encompasses Mind, Body, and Spirit, and it includes EVERYTHING to which we expose ourselves.
As women this in particular includes our beauty products and cleaning products, many of which expose us to over 500 chemicals DAILY, which adversely affects our normal hormonal responses. After realizing this I decided to start phasing out these harmful products by using essential oils, and wanting to help other women do the same, I became a Young Living Independent Distributor.
It was such a natural course of action for me to decide to take and it has been super exciting incorporating oils into my life, home and business!
I absolutely LOVE empowering women on all aspects of wellness- ways to remove toxins from their regimes, choose more nutritiously sound food, and to find the methods of exercise that work best for them and their personal goals. :)
