“I am an integrative weight management coach that specializes in healthy weight management from a multi-factorial perspective. I believe that understanding the cognitive (our thoughts), soul (our emotions/desires), and physiological parts of the mind-body connection is the best way to lose fat (or gain muscle!) the healthy way, and create a loving relationship with our bodies, food, and ultimately ourselves.”
Book recommendation: “The Gifts of Imperfection” by Brene Brown
Favorite philosopher: Richard Rohr
Favorite quote: “Obstacles are just an opportunity to get creative.”
A CEO you follow: (Idk if they are your traditional CEO’s but I follow people like Brene Brown, Dr. Dan Siegel, and Dr. Anita Johnston for inspiration and growth)
Favorite documentary: Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things
Favorite artwork: I love artwork done by a local artist in Wichita, Melanie Cloud. She has a lot of soul and intention in her work: melanie-pearl.
Favorite music: Okay, this is a tough one – but if we are talking bands I’ve loved my whole life I’d have to say the Red Hot Chili Peppers have been a constant. I’m currently listening to the “New Music Friday” playlist on Spotify.
What would your last meal be? Grass-fed Sirloin Steak, an organic baked potato with coconut oil, bacon, and coconut sour cream, and asparagus/broccoli roasted in garlic (basically steak, potatoes and veggies).
What is the meaning of life? I’m not even going to pretend I have these answers, but a pattern I’ve noticed among life and humans is that there will always be change, evolution, and growth. We are meant to be growing/evolving. I’m assuming that’s for good because when I make the meaning a positive one, I tend to live more in alignment with who I want to be.
What is your situation? (married, single, kids…) I have a boyfriend, no kids and no fur babies yet. My goal is to get a golden doodle by next Summer.
What advice would you give your 20 y/o self? Have better boundaries, and see obstacles as an opportunity for creativity. Take more risks as long as you are doing it with integrity. Understand that everything makes sense in context and anything worth doing is worth doing slowly.
What do you have left to do? I’ll always be on the journey of self-growth and business growth — but I think it’s also important to find presence in the now and find joy in the journey (it’s part of what I’m working on).
How would you spend an additional $5,000 in your business? Upgrade audio/tech equipment, hire out work in the website/marketing areas (basically hire out the tasks that aren’t my specialty). Without a large budget, you get the opportunity to become a jack-of-all-trades, however, when you have the resources I think it’s important to stick with your strengths and outsource the rest.
