My love affair with self-care and wellness began at the young age of 14. After being bullied for most of my childhood, I found movement to be a positive outlet in working through my emotions.

Within these corporate years, I Weekend Warrior-ed with flag-football, discovered my love for snowboarding, played more basketball, hit the gym 3-5 times per week, hiked and kayaked.
