My personal health journey wasn't always easy. I grew up eating the standard American diet — mac and cheese, hot dogs, pizza, and processed sugary breakfast cereal. It wasn't a coincidence that my three brothers and I were very sick kids growing up.
It wasn't until my grandfather passed away from cancer that my mom quit smoking and began to educate herself about leading a healthier lifestyle. As she became more health-conscious, implementing healthier foods and habits into our family's lifestyle, we all started to look and feel better, got sick less often, and had more energy. My journey to health had begun.
Through years of trial and error, amazing teachers and mentors, and, above all, through listening to my own intuition, I've journeyed to what I call vibrant health-consciousness. It's all about finding balance and harmony in life: balance in your physical body, in your diet, in your relationships, in your work, and in how you spend your time.
