Welcome to The Simple Healthy Life!
I haven’t always known the true meaning of being healthy. It wasn’t until my adult years that I really began to learn what it meant to be healthy. Growing up, I was only concerned about how my clothes fit and how I looked in a bikini – my concerns only led to a string of yo-yo dieting. It is safe to say that I have battled my weight my entire life. I have finally learned that being skinny isn’t all it takes to be healthy. It’s really about balancing life as a whole and defining your own healthy. A night in the kitchen cooking dinner for my family helps me relieve stress and provides us with healthier food than we’d get at a restaurant – that’s my healthy.
My passion truly revolves around seeing people gain control of their health and enjoy every ounce of life. It really is easy and I hope this blog shows you how!
I’m also passionate about a few other things….
- My husband and my baby girl. He steal gives me butterflies and she brings unspeakable joy to our lives.
- Ethnic food. I love all food, but especially ethnic food!
- Thrift stores, coupons, and Target. Who doesn’t love a good bargain?
The boring stuff….
I’ve always had an interest and passion for health and wellness, mainly because I have seen so many of my family members suffer from diseases and illnesses that could be prevented. Early on in my college career I decided to turn my passion into my education. In 2008, I received a B.S. in physical education with concentrations in exercise science and sports management with a minor in health education. In 2010, I earned a M.S. in health promotion. I’ve been fortunate enough to work in several positions within the health and wellness field that have allowed me to put my passion in action. There’s a lot of joy that comes with seeing people get their life back!
