I live on a small farm with my husband Scott, in Central Oregon. We have launched our 4 adult children, and we are living our dreams. Scott is a vegetable farmer. I am an essential oil enthusiast.
I love what I do for a living. I lose track of time, often forget to eat, and have to remind myself to stop & sleep. I enjoy the freedom to choose when and where I work. I get to travel, meet amazing people, with no time clock to punch, no supervisor to please. For this and so much more, I am deeply grateful.
My work is to empower individuals to achieve greater levels of Wellness, optimizing their lives in all areas of health: physical, emotional, mental, and even financial. I get to share REAL answers with people who are seeking solutions, who desire to achieve their Highest Potential in every way. As a business leader, wife, mom, and heart-centered woman, I love the freedom, joy, and satisfaction my life affords me. And I'm happy to open the way for you to optimize your life, too.
It hasn't always been like this.
I believe there are too many people living compromised lives. Feeling less than their best. If a person is not living in wellness, if they are living in a chemical soup of toxins, trudging through their days in a medicated fog, or emotional imbalance, stressed out, exhausted, or hiding behind 20 or 30 or even 50 pounds of unwanted body fat, they might be surviving, but probably not Thriving.
That was me 15 years ago when a series of horse-related injuries left me facing spinal fusion surgery, taking strong drugs for the pain. Those were my options according to the many medical specialists I consulted. My life looked bleak: pain meds, no energy, spending hours on the couch in an antidepressant-induced stupor, becoming more overweight and lethargic without purpose, going through the motions day after day.
I was ready to find real answers.
I am so grateful for the day in my journey when my path crossed with someone who offered possibilities. I was introduced to plant-based natural vibrational tools and technologies and I chose to open my mind. I discovered real answers and I've never looked back. I never had the surgery, and I haven't had so much as an aspirin or Tylenol for back pain since 2006. Now more than a decade and a half has passed-- I hardly recognize myself.
Yes, my spine suffered serious injuries yet I am able to live a pain-free, high energy, active, vibrant, fun life. Every body is different, for sure. All I know is, I feel amazing and am often told I look better now than I did then. I feel passionate that everyone needs to know what can be possible. Abundant living, naturally. That's my business, AND its my pleasure to pay it forward to others.
I have had the privilege to study with and learn from the top leaders in the industry of essential oils. I earned full certifications as an aromatherapist and instructor where I taught on faculty with the Center for Aromatherapy Research and Education. I get to share and educate individuals in the practical use of essential oils and oil-infused products.
Why this story?
Life is short, and I am compelled to share that we actually do have options. I believe our bodies are designed for wellness. When we get out of the way, and begin to support our bodies, they have remarkable abilities to repair, restore, and rejuvenate. We can have hope. To see possibilities. To feel vibrant, energized, optimal. Extraordinary wellness gives us passion to discover our purpose, share with others, and make a difference in the world while we are alive.
Its never to soon to begin, and its rarely too late.
Let's connect. I'd love to hear your story, your dreams, and partner with you in experiencing Abundant Living, Naturally.
