My Story

I started Strive for Vitality in 2016 with a mission to change the world.  With the rates of obesity and sickness rising,  I realized something has to change.  People deserve to live lives full of adventure.  So i went out and studied over 100 different dietary theories and learned to question everything when it comes to my health.  I am officially a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach working on spreading my passion for healthy happy living through various types of programs  to teach awareness, and guide others to find their balance again. 

 

My passion for health and wellness started after I graduated college in 2012 with my Bachelors in Psychology.  I was overweight, diagnosed pre-diabetic, and I was the laziest I had ever been in my life.  I spent the next few years working full time as a nanny and changing my lifestyle by being more active, eating healthier, experimenting in the kitchen, and stepping outside of my comfort zone.  I opened up on social media about my journey and connected with some like-minded new friends to inspire one another on our paths to healthy happy living.

After a few years of changing my lifestyle and trying to figure out what works best for my body, I enrolled with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition® to further my knowledge and learn the tools to spread my passion for healthy happy living to others. 

 

There I studied over 100 different dietary theories, along with money management skills, lifestyle management tools, and coaching techniques from some of the top health and wellness experts from all over the country.  This training has given me the knowledge and skills to take my passion to the next level and work with individuals and families to make happy and healthy lifestyle changes that last.
