Born and raised in South Florida, I competed in gymnastics and dance until a severe injury ended my competitive career. I moved to North Carolina in middle school, where I managed to keep up my tumbling skills and develop an interest in cheerleading. I cheered on the Varsity team during my freshman and sophomore years of high school until I began working out and found a love for being in the gym. Shortly after, weightlifting and boot camps became my new passion.
Pursuing My Passion
2014, I graduated from high school and attended college at the University of West Florida in Pensacola. I found a keen interest in business and exercise science and pursued classes in both areas. I became certified as a Group Fitness Instructor, coaching boot camp classes at my university. At the same time, I was becoming more intrigued by traveling. I have traveled all my life, and I love experiencing what the world has to offer; however, traveling began to get in the way of my goals. I was consistently working out, but I wasn’t losing any weight. I struggled to balance food with leisure. Couldn’t I eat whatever I wanted as long as I worked out? “Calories in vs. calories out?”. I didn’t focus on what I was eating or why I was eating it; I only focused on outworking my diet with exercise.
2018, I graduated Cumlaude with my Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science and moved to Pennsylvania shortly after. I interned as a Physical Therapist Assistant and an Athletic Trainer at Spooky Nook Sports, the most extensive indoor sports facility in the United States.
2019, I moved to South Carolina and enrolled in the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN), the world’s largest online nutrition school, and became a certified Holistic Health Coach. I had an ongoing curiosity about foods; I wanted to understand what I was eating, why I was eating it, and how it affected my body. Exercise always seemed to come naturally to me; however, my nutrition lacked both effort and knowledge.
Throughout my enrollment in IIN, I worked late nights at a brewery to make ends meet. I lived in the city and walked to my job (to save money on gas), ate fast food, and drank a lot of beer (free shift drinks anyone?!); I fell into the trap of comfort and bad habits.
Then life happened; I watched the year pass by as I gained weight, became depressed, anxious, insecure, and lazy. I didn’t even recognize the person in the mirror staring back at me. Was “this” the life I wanted to live? Everything I’ve worked towards and became educated on was the complete opposite of how I lived my life. I realized this is not the life I envisioned for myself, and I made a change.
May 2020, Wholistic Wanders began.
Following My Path & Finding My Purpose
I knew I would own my own company. For as long as I can remember, I dreamt of owning a gym (I still have this dream). I’ve worked at several fitness facilities throughout my journey, but I never felt I pursued my real purpose. I put my heart and soul into guiding clients towards success and reaching their goals, but working under another company did not match the vision I have for myself.
I am in charge of my life. I learn from the best and strive to be the change others want to see in themselves. I created Wholistic Wanders to educate and add value to others’ lives by designing a community of like-minded individuals determined to become the best versions of themselves. I will guide each individual to explore, implement, and share their unique gifts and create a life of fulfillment.
Purpose fuels passion; this is what Wholistic Wanders is all about. This reason alone is WHY I created Wholistic Wanders. That ‘WHY’ is what keeps me going.
