This is essentially my love letter to Mindy Kaling... and it's a long one... so get ready... I have always idolized Mindy Kaling. I have always felt connected to her relatable personality and as a young writer and actress, Ive been awestruck by her boundless talent.

My mum gave me Mindy's book years ago (always listen to your mother, kids), but as I entered university I put a hold on reading for pleasure. With third year of Uni at an end (and after watching The Office for like the billionth time) I decided it was time to give it a read and I basically read the whole thing in one sitting. I have never been so moved and inspired! I mean, I knew I loved her but I never knew how much she struggled to get where she is and damn does it feel good knowing how hard she worked to accomplish everything she has done. ---I wish I could say this photo was taken by a friend or handsome stranger who just happened to be strolling by my bed and thought I looked adorably bookish, but in reality I was reading when I thought "hey, I bet this looks super aesthetically pleasing" and immediately requested my mother take this photo (who in fact is also a huge role model to me, just in a different motherly-figure kind of way [go figure]) (I hate that I just said figure twice).---
Mindy is so unapologetically herself. Both her writing and acting are unique, risqué, quirky, witty, refreshing, riveting, fun (I'm sure there are like a billion other positive adjectives I could use to describe this powerhouse of a woman, but I don't want to over do it TOO much) and above all else- inspiring.

I laughed, I cried, I felt a little better about myself as an artist. I drew inspiration to go out and make my dreams come true. I know it's a rocky path and I have no idea where it will lead to, but this book gave me the confidence to give it my all. Thank you, Mindy 💞

Why not me? I ask that anytime I feel like something is a challenge or I have been told I couldn't do it.
I am doing that again and this is about something most think I am good with...food freedom!
I am making a total mindset shift and taking those that dare to come with me in May.
We will be eating, enjoying life, feeling good about it all and losing weight and feeling great at the same time.
Don't like to workout...cone with me!
Don't like to measure food, count calories and macros...come with me!
Want a positive change where you no longer DIET and just start to live...come with me!
Almost sounds unreal but it isn't!! I can't wait to do this with you...why not you??😎

Saturday’s TEDx Portland once again reminded me of the truly amazing things humans are capable of.
From bionic prosthetics to homeless solutions to female run media empires, I was blown away by the innovation, intelligence and above all, outright courage in the room.
It taught me once again that to let fear and “it’s just not the way things are done” hold you back from bringing your unique talents and visions to the world is a tragic waste.
Take action in the face of fear. We all fear failure. We all fear rejection. We all fear the unknown. None of us should be stopped by it.
Take heart in the face of neigh sayers. If we all called it quits when someone laughed or shook their head at our different way of doing things, the world would never grow.

Guyyyssssss, well actually da girrllllllssss too. Have you ever thought What is it that I do as a Health & Wellness Coach??? 🤔🤷‍♀️🤔 Believe me, in my two years as a Coach, I have often wondered what it is that made me say YES to this, something I admittedly n e v e r imagined myself doing! 🙈🙈🙈..
Butchuknowwhat?!? Sometimes we are presented things, opportunities, gifts in the most unexpected forms, methods, & ways and that is how I view this opportunity! 💕🎁💕..
But the bottom line is I want to help people live healthier lives despite the many obstacles that we each may feel prevent us from doing so. In fact, not just live but to t h r i v e ✨🙌🏻✨..
My team is hosting a little sneak peek into what we do as wellness coaches. If you’ve ever been curious, send me a message & I’ll get the info to you. There’s no obligation or commitment for creeping in and it’s not a pyramid scheme because we still hear that one a lot 🙄🙄🙄 If you’ve thought about changing your life and those of others, it’s a great chance to stop thinking about it and maybe start doing..
Send me a DM 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 for the details. Can’t wait to share more info about this business with you! 💕📲💪🏼

I had a great time this weekend with my Philadelphia family. April Leadership Development Weekend (LDW) was nothing short of amazing.

Never let what you feel make you forget what’s real. Think before reacting 😉

I am going to do it
...for me
I will fight
and win!!

Good morning!! 🙋🏼‍♀️
I've thought a lot lately about what my future holds and I've dreamed up some pretty big and scary goals. I'll be honest, they scare the 🤬 out of me, but I crave the end result enough that I am working through the fear and learning on faith that this is what I'm meant to be doing.

So if you're in the same boat as me, just know that it's ok to have big scary goals and that we can crush them and make them a reality. That's how we grow. 😊 If you need someone to work with, I'm your gal and I can help you get to a new level. So go out and work on your dreams and goals this week because if you dont, someone else will be. Happy Monday everyone!

Ohh it’s nice to go away, but coming home to these angels is the best feeling of all!! This mama is ready to get her butt in gear and create an absolute dream life—and these boys are just the best reason ever to be brave. 💪🏼🤗

Didn't want to exercise today, but my routine pulled me through. I've noticed leaning over the tub to bathe my son is getting easier, and I've gone down a notch on my belt.
