I’m the wife to Ryan and mama bear to A & B. Before motherhood I spent several years making people feel better as a rehabilitative massage therapist & had some incredible opportunities through that career. I didn’t solely do rehabilitative massage, as I am formally trained in 11 types of energy work and body work but that seemed to be the bulk of my clientele. Making people feel better and have a better quality of life was incredible. Once I was blessed with motherhood my priorities shifted. I retired from my incredible career in massage but my passion for natural wellness never ceased.
Between my education background and life as a mom desiring to offer my kids the best start to life, it’s all led me to the path I’m on today. I love natural wellness options and am constantly in awe of how beautifully nature works flawlessly with our bodies. I’m the mom that breastfeeds well into toddler-hood because I know & understand the benefits, and have been blessed with a body that has been allowed to do so with both children.
As a survivor of a very rare heart condition that resulted in a risky but successful heart surgery, I have a healthy respect for western medicine. I think vaccines have save so many lives and choose them for my family. Yet within that respect, I also believe in prevention and using natural remedies whenever possible to heal our bodies as naturally as possible.
Natural wellness is something that makes me excited. When I fell in love with Young Living Essential Oils it reopened and a passion to be able to serve and help others. Today I am helping others feel better just like I did years ago as a rehabilitative massage therapist years ago. Only now, I get to help them with a God given source, instead of a God given talent, all while staying home with my family.
Friends, that’s what this is all about me for and it always will be. Building the business is just an incredible perk. Serving others is really the heart of this matter for me.
I am far from perfect on my wellness journey and the wellness journey of my family. We are normal every day people that eat healthy but splurge on sweet treats and little luxuries. There is no expectation for you to live the perfect life either. We all just want to live the life that’s best for us.
I’m a bit of a free spirit in search of living my best life and thriving to love people well. We live in the beautiful state of Colorado and enjoy the mountains every chance we get. When I’m not helping others with essential oils and other natural wellness remedies, you can usually find me over on our lifestyle blog, Joyfully Smitten.
- Make Wellness approachable and relatable. So often we feel like if we aren’t on the latest diet or digging the latest superfoods we aren’t worthy of calling ourselves worthy. It’s time to get rid of that mentality and be realistic in knowing that moderation. Have a thing for sweets? Sometimes I do, too – and that’s okay!
- Take the intimidation factor out of using essential oils. I remember wondering if I could really wrap my head around everything when it came to oils. Would I mess it up? I’m here to help you on this journey and help provide you with education and resources! Never will you be alone on this journey.
- Serve others and help people live their best lives by supporting and encouraging their needs and goals. Helping others has always been a passion of mine, so when I get to help someone feel better, help someone reach their goals – wellness wise or business wise – I’m thrilled to do so.
- Create an environment where everyone is welcome. Maybe you have just learned the word wellness or you are a wellness guru, you are welcome here. You might be into oils or you might not be – either way, we have stuff here for you. Are someone wanting to dabble in oils, use them daily or want to generate an incomes? You are welcome here!
