I’m a mom, certified yoga and pilates teacher, wellness coach, meditator and thriving on a plant-based diet. My life, however, wasn’t always as pretty as it may seem right now. For years I struggled with never feeling like I was enough, severe anxiety, painful cystic acne and an awful eating disorder. I was so insecure and unhappy with myself that I believe I actually created these issues. I internalized all of my feelings, allowing every emotion to build up inside of me and would turn to purge as some form of release. This was a deep, dark secret that not one person in my life knew about…thinking about how great I became at hiding my pain still brings tears to my eyes today. I finally got to a point where I could not take living a lie anymore, so one day I woke up and took the most challenging step – I asked for help.

So many of you ask me about my turning point, and that was it. When you become so honest with yourself and get in touch with who you really are, I believe that is where the ultimate shift happens. I finally got real with myself and tapped into what truly mattered to me. I took a weekend and wrote down everything that made me feel alive; I realized what truly lights me up is taking really great care of myself and helping others do the same. This ultimately led me to enroll at IIN, The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and completing my health coaching certification…which was just the beginning of building an incredible community.

I love coaching, but I knew I was just scratching the surface of my passions once I got going. I had always treated working out like a chore and thought I needed to do high intensity training in order to have any results and get the body I wanted. Well, none of the methods I tried worked for my body, and once I stopped listening to what other people told me I “should” be doing is when I created my own method. The MWH Method is slow controlled movements through yoga and pilates style principles to sculpt long, lean lines throughout your entire body. This is how I built a brand new body after giving birth to both of my babies. Once I started sharing my workouts digitally, connecting with an even bigger community than I could have ever imagined and watched people’s transformations right before my eyes, is when I knew I had something…I had found my true calling.

My goal in this work is to help you become your best self through my movement principals, mindful eating and meditation. I believe the balance of these three key elements will shift your life in unimaginable ways. I’m here to guide you to leave behind notions of how you “should” be and become more compassionate towards yourself and everything you do. Take time to practice self-love and recognize that you have the ability to step into your power. Let go of negative self talk and your true self will come through. Thank you for being apart of this journey with me, and let’s live #mindfullyfit.

So much love,
