Who am I?
I wear many hats just like you do . . . wife, friend, sister, author, boss, employee, side-hustler and child of God! Most importantly I am a woman in pursuit of her best life. I get energy when I encourage others and enjoy seeing people flourish in their gifts.
What’s my wellness journey?
I’ve lived as a yo-yo dieter for most of my life. Years ago, I accomplished the biggest dream of my life: losing half my size which was at the time 144lbs. It was an amazing feat! At my lowest weight ever I realized something, “Being skinny is not all that it is cracked up to be!” Over the years I gained back the weight that I lost, plus some. It was then that I knew I needed real change: mind, body, and spirit. I capture my story in my first book, The Weight Loss D.I.V.A: Discover the Discipline, Inspiration, Victory, Inspiration & Acceptance within You! I launched Fit & Fab Lifestyle brand in 2016 to create a community of accountability for faith-filled women looking for encouragement and practical health advice so they could confidently celebrate where they are on their wellness journey, while they go after the best version of themselves. I believe fitness and wellness includes every-body.
