I am a South Florida girl. I grew up right in between the everglades and the ocean in Ft. Lauderdale, and I loved every minute of it. Weekend road trips to Disney World, the Florida Keys, and the gulf coast white sand beaches were regular occurrences. Busch Gardens in Tampa, as well as trips to Pensacola to visit family happened pretty frequently too. Yes, I am a lucky girl and have always been grateful. My parents worked hard and I'm an only child which afforded us the opportunity to do such fun activities. Both of my parents are from families of 6 children and never had the luxury of vacations. They are some of our most cherished memories. Living locally to such great attractions and amazing wildlife was a supreme bonus and I'm the first to admit, my childhood was pretty sweet.  

During my adolescent middle school years I was chubby and awkward. I know many can relate to those coming-of-age years. Despite my weight issues and being very tall and over developed for my age, I never had self esteem issues. I am very strong and I don't care what other people think of me. I never have. Perhaps because I'm an only child- who knows. I love myself and it is crucial for you to love yourself too. It is the foundation on which happiness and success are built. 

Moving on to high school, I realized how smart I was and how insanely bored I was in school. I am a gifted learner and the traditional school system lacks the challenge and unique needs presented. It is an awesome gift to be able to absorb and understand so much information easily, but it is also a huge obstacle in social situations and being consistently misunderstood. 

I transferred to an online enrollment program for advanced and gifted learners and graduated high school in 3.5 years. This was in 1998 before online school was such a trend so I feel like somewhat of a pioneer. Haha, just kidding. I graduated with honors and the program allowed me to walk the stage with my peers to receive my diploma. I lived in Port Saint Lucie (about 1.5 hours north) by then with a roommate. I actually ended up having to quit my one and only job as a waitress because I wasn't going to be allowed to take the time off to go to my graduation. No job is worth missing that kind of life moment.

In addition to waitressing I was a fitness trainer at Curves. I saved an elderly woman's life when she went in to cardiac arrest when I was 18. It was an amazing and utterly terrifying experience. Still in shock from the event, I reduced my hours at Curves and took some part-time work as a waitress. Being so young, I didn't take into consideration that I had to walk in a ditch along a road with no lights for nearly 2 miles after my shift. When they said I couldn't have the time off to go to my graduation because I was so new, they made it an easy decision to say goodbye. I moved back south after my year lease was up.

I missed my mom. We have always been best friends.

Despite the pressure from my parents, at that time in my life, I decided not to go to college. They weren't in a position, at the time, to help me financially and I didn't want a mountain of debt in my name at 19. I felt the need to go to Chicago, DC, New York, and Philadelphia just to taste the foods that make the cities famous. I have always been free spirited and had little interest in sitting in a lecture hall after having been free to make my own schedule for years.

Additionally, I had been diagnosed with endometriosis and told that I don't ovulate. It was crushing news for a young adult who wanted a bunch of children. So I decided to travel...the pizza was calling my name. To get my plan started, I began working at an acupuncturist office to save money. I learned so much there and received free treatments for fertility and all kinds of ailments. It was such a gift. I even had electrostim acupuncture. It was amazing. A chiropractor worked in that office who I did file work for as well. There were tons of biology books and a plethora of information from both women's practices that I had unlimited access to. Again, such a gift. I read and learned for fun. I'm a true nerd at heart. After a year, I was ready to go... but where? My minimal budget kept me in this country (thus far), but the people I've met and places I've been are worth more to me then any diploma. 

I lived in Chicago on a friends couch (she moved and needed someone with her while she adjusted to the city). Her place had the most stunning view of the entire city skyline, and I stayed for about 4 months during winter. Here is where I experienced snow for first time. I was a nanny and taught yoga in the lobby of the building. I have to say that I only went for the pizza originally, but stayed once I experienced the city. It was amazing. From the ridiculously dangerous situations we got ourselves in.. to the swanky high class events we got to attend. Chi town is what's up. From one famous slice to the next...

NEW YORK was next on the list. I only stayed for a month in the tiniest little shoe box of a place in Hell's Kitchen. My now famous (like for real..he's famous) cousin let me stay while he was filming in L.A.. I visited family and friends and walked around a lot for about a month here until I ran out of my savings. I thought about finding a job and staying, but ultimately, I returned to Florida. I got a job as a pre-school teacher and stayed here for a few years. I was 21 and, as much as I was loving being in New York, South Beach and the sunshine were calling me back. So that's enough said on the absolute fantastic blur those years were...for real. 

At 23 years old, I moved to Silver Spring Maryland. It's just outside of Washington D.C., and this was a sensory overload for me. I loved the culture of the nation's capital and felt at home right away. During the next 2 and a half glorious years I trained as a mixed martial artist, took belly dancing classes, ate some of the most amazing and authentic cuisine of my life (Pho changed me as a person), and most importantly I learned the art of meditation.

My first job was in Virginia which later moved to the Inner Harbor of Baltimore where I met and befriended John, the partial owner of the Orioles. (Very cool story, but for another day.) At the time, all I had arranged for was a place to live.. so I needed a job quick. I drove out to Virginia and was introduced to the world of Multi-level marketing (MLM). I made so much money working at this company that when I decided to leave (for wanting to work less hours) I didn't bother even looking for my next job for 6 months. That is when I was (ever so briefly) a dance instructor and didn't get paid to train for 2 months!

So in total, my rent and all other expenses in D.C. were covered for 8 months. Plus, I got a few tattoos. Looking back, I had regrets about leaving the marketing job- I really rocked it after all! Ultimately though, I had some great experiences after that job that I would not have had if I continued to work there. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. I learned so much about myself during those years and gained a lot of life experience that is now a major part of who I am. Moving over 1000 miles from home to a city where I knew virtually nobody was scary and exhilarating and I cannot say enough about how much I enjoyed every moment. From the scary to the exciting, I appreciate them all

I saw a cardinal, black squirrel, chipmunk, and some of the most gorgeous trees ever. Not to mention the historic buildings and museums. Oh my though.. seeing the trees change colors, set my soul ablaze.

I had a major health scare at that time too. Having no family near by to learn that in addition to the other 2 reasons I was told getting pregnant would be difficult, I also had polysistic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). I was in great shape from learning mixed martial arts techniques, but the doctor told me not to be surprised if I had a hard time keeping off excess weight. I didn't give it much thought at the time, but gaining the wait would eventually happen.

I worked at a company that installed the automatic translating technology in the microphones of the world leaders who met in various government buildings. I actually had security clearance to enter the pentagon. The lowest level clearance, but still- it was another experience for the old life catalog. It was pretty boring and I didn't stay there long, but during this health scare it provided me with excellent medical benefits. Right before I returned to Florida for the final time, I worked as a make-up artist for Chanel. That was fun! I learned to hide my imperfections very well with some awesome professional techniques. I usually don't though. I'm a tomboy at heart and make-up and fancy shoes are reserved for fancy occasions only. Living in the DC, MD, VA area was great and I could go on for days with some of my best stories. I loved it.

Unfortunately, I moved back to Florida after my uncle passed away tragically. My mom needed me. The plan was to stay for a year then take over the rent controlled apartment of my cousin's in NY. Yup...that shoe box in Hell's Kitchen. He was moving to LA, California (which I visited and didn't like) and I was going to have the whopping 300 sq. feet all to myself.

It didn't work out that way. I got a job as a personal trainer at 24 Hour Fitness and met the nicest guy in the world. We began dating and shortly after that- I was pregnant! A total shock and unplanned curve-ball that profoundly changed me (and him) forever. I had to leave my job at the gym because I was bedridden the entire pregnancy. I was sick beyond description. Of course, it was worth it and I now have a beautiful daughter. 

While I was stuck in bed for 9 months straight, I began college online. I got a few degrees and that mountain of debt I tried to avoid. In all honesty, I was unsure of how things would work with Chris. We had a good amount of differences to sort through in the beginning. We did. He's a wonderful man and he stuck by my side when I needed him the most. He's proven to be the greatest husband and best father to our daughter that I could ask for. We now have an amazing relationship built on trust, honesty, and communication. At the time I didn't know if I needed to be the provider for our family so I went to business school and graduated with honors. During this time, I discovered my very deep roots and passion for knowledge and creativity. I have always been smart and creative, but through meditation and a long spiritual journey (which I'm still on), I realized that these are my unique gifts and my individual point of view is what I have to share with the world. My authentic self will change the world. The same is true for you.

7 years later. I am currently a stay-at-home mother. I homeschool my highly gifted daughter which is incredible but presents a rare set of challenges and circumstances. I own my own multi-level marketing fitness and wellness business that I work and have built almost entirely from home. My team is called Motivational Mindset and I'd love to tell you more details of exactly why I became a coach and the type of people I want on my team. My current goals are  working on being able to retire my husband and parents through this amazing opportunity. We are also saving for a house to fix up on at least 5 acres in Florida to grow organic fruits, veggies, and grains.
