How MY HUStle Began…

Does my story sound familiar?

On the outside, I looked like a fun-loving, successful, go-getter who had her life in order. I was well-respected in my community and career, I had two awesome kids, and I had a husband who loved and supported me.

But on the inside, it looked completely different…

I was trying to be everything to everyone (except myself) and I was failing! While trying to please everyone, I wasn’t focusing on those who needed it most: my family and ME.

As I struggled with finding balance, my weight got out of control. As my weight increased, everything else in my life suffered even more. I was depressed, ashamed of my body, had zero self-worth, and my confidence… let’s just say that it was gone.

I had a BIG life changing moment (thank goodness) while I was stationed in Germany with my family. That ah-ha moment sparked something inside me and pushed me to become a better version of myself…

I used to believe I was broken, worthless and held no real value. I’m happy to report that I’m NO LONGER THAT WOMAN ANYMORE!

The road has not been easy, but I am here to tell you that change is possible. For the last 9 years I have struggled, battled, and hustled for my new life!

My mission is to empower, inspire and motivate career focused women to live their best life! By helping them build habits that support Self-Care, Health Living and a more Balanced Life!

Does any of this ring a bell…

Do you feel like there's never enough time in the day to get everything done?

Are you hyped up on caffeine, sugar, and crappy processed foods just to make it through the day then drinking at night just to quite your mind and get some sleep?

Do you feel stressed out trying to juggle EVERYTHING on your plate? Such as health, relationships, career, family, faith etc...

Do you give all that you have to those around you leaving you feeling depleted, empty, and unmotivated? People pleaser anyone?

Do you struggle with feeling like you’re not enough and notice that your perfectionism is holding you back from achieving your goals and dreams?

Are you ready to look in the mirror and love what you see?

Ready to cultivate a more balanced life?

If you’re like  yes… yes… and hell yes! 

I SEE YOU mama, and let me tell you that being a successful healthy career focused woman doesn’t have to be chaotic.

Most women I know tend to put their needs on the back burner helping everyone except for themselves. Always saying things like… when the kids go to bed, I will finally take some time for me. Reality check babe, you never end up taking that time or at least not constantly.

Or maybe just maybe you are a goal-getting, fear facing woman who is ready to cultivate a bigger life. Hello Hustler, I would love to help you reach the next level of success.
