After struggling with anxiety and depression, auto-immune and skin issues, plus lack of energy and motivation (not to mention almost losing my gallbladder!), I knew I needed a change. Life is not supposed to be this way. It's supposed to be fun! 
I was tired of being tired and frustrated with being frustrated. I started a journey to re-evaluate what I was putting both in and on my body as well as what I was allowing in my mind. It was a challenge: after all, with a family of six, I needed simple, effective, and inexpensive strategies.
After copious amounts of research, reading, training, and classes, I became educated on how real food and real lifestyle changes can impact a life. I gained traction in combating my own struggles and began to overcome the obstacles that were holding me back, all using functional nutrition and mindset strategies.
Now I'm a certified trainer through WOMANSPEAK and also a Health and Lifestyle Coach. And the founder of Livin' Healthy and Free.
Livin' Healthy and Free isn't a just a company: It's an opportunity. It's how I pursue my passion, which is helping others to become their happier, healthier selves who can pursue their passions. Livin' Healthy and Free is a way to simply and effectively nourish your whole self, which in turn gives you energy and freedom to do the things you want to do—that you were meant to do.
Peace and blessings,

It's time to get back to the good old days... when food was food, and a powerful fuel for our body, mind and spirit.

The source of the modern epidemics to which so many of us have fallen victim―depression, disease, obesity―stems from our food, and even our health and cleaning products. What we are putting in and on our bodies is directly affecting what good we can get out of our bodies.

In this stress-filled 21st-century reality dominated by processed foods and harsh chemicals, we need to cultivate and sustain the healthy lifestyles our bodies need. Nutritious food and supplements can change your body at the cellular level and let you truly feel good again.

Frequently asked questions.

Here are answers to questions that get asked a lot about Livin' Healthy and Free options.

  • Will starting a meal plan mean I can't have my favorites?

    Food isn't just for surviving―it's for enjoying! I want to help you discover new alternatives and new favorites so the goal is not to put you on a super restrictive diet. Though donuts and soda will probably have to go, you won't have to completely abandon what you love.
  • Can I adapt a healthy lifestyle to the way I'm living now?

    Eating healthy and starting a new way of life can be a challenge, but we'll work together on the optimal solution for you. Busy parents? We'll plan some delicious kid-friendly meals. If you're vegan or have dietary concerns - we'll select meals and supplement choices that you'll love.
  • Will eating healthy mean I have to eat anything... weird?

    I will most likely introduce you to new foods, but not like crazy weird ones, like ones you would have to travel to a rainforest to get. Livin' Healthy and Free is about making lifestyle changes that are reasonable and sustainable! It is my passion and heart to share these strategies with you. I try to keep things as simple as possible... and fun!
