Once upon a time, a young, bright eyed lady felt the best way to help people get healthier would be to become a registered dietitian, so this individual took the necessary steps to do so. Quickly after finishing the schooling, completing an internship, and passing a board exam, it was time to find a job! How exciting, the real world, wide open, full throttle. The first clinical dietitian position was fast paced and in full swing. Slowly but surely, the realization of the almost impossible task of improving the nutritional health of the masses hit the young lady in the face. Thoughts and defeat overcame her with every position she took over the next three years. Until finally, she found a trail up the impossible mountain she had once desired to overcome. The path was known as diabetes educator. After managing a diabetes program, she realized the impact of educating diabetics. The dream and spark reignited, help everyone and anyone get healthy, especially diabetes clients. This went on for about four years, when she faced a new mountain, motherhood. A beautiful task, but the most difficult one thus far. After returning to her beloved career as a clinical dietitian and diabetes educator post baby, the dream began to alter into completely new territory- being available and present with her child, and changing the health of America, one person at a time. How in the world would this ever be possible!?
Insert current situation and dream. After much prayer, discussion, and research, the woman in the previous paragraph stepped away from her 8-5 job to start a nutrition consulting business. One completely different than what I am even able to wrap my mind around. It may seem backwards to start a business to spend more time with your family, but the vision was placed and now it was time to take steps in the direction, from starter to builder. The hope of helping others learn to eat healthy without compromising time and taste, while spending more time with family and managing home life better.
After about a year in a traditional office style consulting business I decided I would try something different. A fresh, new approach. I made this website is to bring healthy to YOU. Decreasing the frustration and confusion as you muddle through the mess online. I hope to guide you as you become the hero of your own story, making healthy simple and easy. Please look around and consider an option which works best for you!
