Who am I?
This thought came to me years ago. But I dismissed it. It seemed silly, unrealistic and it wasn't a REAL thing. Like how could I build a career around being happy? But the thought stayed with me. And when you are meant to do something, you won't be able to shake the unsettling feeling of NOT doing it until you get there.
That's what this website is about. Everything I do from writing a blog, making a recipe, shooting a video, helping people with their health with essential oils and helping people reach financial goals is ALL about learning to be happier, healthier and LIVING your life to the fullest.
Where do I start? There are a ton of moments in my life that were life changing but the first time I realized I was truly on the wrong path was back when I was an accountant.
I have an MBA in Accounting and went on to work at one of the Big Four firms.
From the outside, things were great. I had a great job with a ton of perks, a beautiful condo in Connecticut and a great relationship with my fiancé, Ray (my now husband). Yet I was a miserable! I worked crazy long hours. While money was good, I had very little free time. Everyone said it would eventually get better but I needed a change.
So I quit....and went to work for a company that had 9 - 5 hours. And guess what? I was STILL unhappy. Guess it wasn't the long hours! My fiancé and I decided we both needed a drastic change so we moved to Texas. (Why Texas is a WHOLE other story!)
After trying accounting ONE MORE TIME, I fiinally quit it for good. Because I was young and let's face it...irresponsible, I had literally nothing in savings. My fiancé and I were dead broke. (He was on his own journey and also quit his high paying career)
So I got a part time job as a tutor making less an hour than I did at my first job out of high school but for the first time in a looooong time...I was happy. I realized not only did I have a talent for teaching and making people laugh, I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Surely but surely my husband (We got married along the way! ) and I put our life together. At one point I was tutoring at a school in Dallas, doing one on one tutoring in client's homes and libraries, and working as a fitness instructor with this awesome company that works with kids under 10.
I eventually landed a position as a pre school teacher. In the meantime, Ray started working as a personal training at a fitness studio. After a year and a half, the owner decided to sell...and guess who he asked?
At the point in our lives, we had made so many changes and taken so many risks. So we thought, "Why not?" During our time of discontentment with our careers, we had made some drastic changes to our diets...even becoming raw vegans for 3 years. Fitness and nutrition had become a big part of our life.
So we bought a gym!
Infinity Personal Training
For the last 9 years, Ray and I have owned and operated a personal training studio.
At first, I was just behind the scenes but as we grew, I made the decision to leave my teaching job and come on full time.
When we had a trainer quit two hours before his session, I became a group trainer. Eventually, I also started handling all the nutrition meetings.
In order to get myself back on track, I went to a health retreat. One of the many classes I attended was on the power of essential oils. And I knew. This was it. This was the way I was going to help EVEN more people with their health. This was going to be my avenue to reaching more people. This was the MORE!
