I'm a New York girl who hoards beauty products, loves fruit smoothies and working out. I'm a certified nutrition and wellness coach, writer and according to my boyfriend, an overall spaz. Ironically, my love of fitness and whole food developed from having a poor body image in my teens. I know firsthand how women (and men) buy into the myth that a different exterior will make life perfect. Learning about the mind/body connection, nutrition and health helped me not only change my body image but outlook on life. Now I seek to help others do the same, one blog post at a time.
