I am a 2016 Creighton University doctor of pharmacy candidate, developer of a hybrid yoga, cardio, strength training fitness program and clean eating nutrition plan, yoga instructor, wife, owner of two French bulldogs, and soon to be momma.
This is my personal blog. My mission is to help you look, feel, and be your best you. As a result, I write on personal development, nutrition, fitness, relationships, and pertinent pharmacy and medical topics.
My goal is to give practical tips and explain how now is the best and easiest time to take control of your life and health. It is for anyone who desires to optimize her nutrition, fitness regimen, and/or relationships in order to live her best life. I will teach you how rethink wellness, easily implement highly nutritious foods and exercise into your daily life, how to make goals and set up systems for your success, how to truly value yourself and surround yourself with positive relationships, and explain how all of these aspects combined can actually decrease your risks for preventable disease.
I typically post once a week. To make sure you don’t miss my newest posts, you can subscribe via RSS or e-mail.

I am a life long learner. I’ve accumulated 2 bachelor degrees, a yoga certification, CrossFit level one trainer certificate, and am working on my doctor of pharmacy via Creighton University’s pharmacy program. Each degree I have is in some way expressed in this blog. My missions degree from a Bible college expresses my deep desire to help other ladies be there best self. My cell and molecular biology degree brought me to a great understanding of the need to carefully take care of our body’s via nutrition, exercise, and positive relationships. There’s much more going on in our bodies than we even know. Respect and take care of your DNA. It’s the only set you get. CrossFit taught me to never give up. My yoga training program changed my life especially in the way of being open to loving relationships. As mentioned, I am working on my doctorate of pharmacy degree. This program has deepened my understanding of the human body, how it works, how essential it is to take care of it, and what we can do for it when things go awry.
Personally, my wellness journey really began when I was 15. I realized I had to deal with childhood issues or else they would affect me the rest of my life. I did so through reading every self-help, psychology book I could find. I was also deeply religious at the time and memorized about 1,000 Bible verses. Basically, I was re-teaching myself how to think and engrained in my mind positive thinking patterns. These issues still affect me but I have learned from them and continue to grow in my journey.
I was really shy and unsure of myself. Even in my twenties I was afraid of raising my hand in class to ask a question. I didn’t think people liked me. I didn’t feel like I was pretty or smart. I believe because of my lack of self-confidence I found myself in a situation I wasn’t happy in. I say I had three areas of chaos in my life. I had a crazy dog, unhappy marriage, and an unhealthy close family member relationship. My crazy dog ended up having to be put to sleep due to her unruly actions. I got the courage to leave the marriage, and eventually the confidence to cut off the unhealthy relationship with my family member. When I look at my life, I see I have actually found positive replacements.
Darcy and Paris are my two precious French bulldog babies.
I became open to love when I was reading the Bhagavad Gita’s section on love (affiliate link) when I unexpectedly met my DeMarco.
And now our world has changed with entrance of our baby boy Tytan January 1st, 2015.
And I have found amazing friends and mentors in my life who support and direct me to be the person I was always meant to be.
My life of chaos has turned to a life of pure happiness. You will hear me talk about the catalysts that brought me here such as exercise, nutrition, meditation, personal development, and overall being open to change. The funny thing is, I didn’t realize my life could be so much more fulfilling. A wise person once told me, “It takes a strong person to get out of a bad relationship.” Whether it be your relationship with food, exercise, yourself, or a close relationship you are much stronger than you think. You can make the positive changes in your life you desire. It’s not easy and the process may takes years as mine has, but I am here to help you along the way. You can have the life you want!
