I am a wife, mom of 3, certified nutritionist, health enthusiast and professional entrepreneur. Life is about inspiring and educating others to be all that they can be, which is what Women in Networking is all about and why I joined over a year ago.

Giving back is an important part of my daily life whether it be a positive word, smile for a friend or giving to a person in need. Also, I support a couple of charities on a monthly basis. One is the MORE project where we give back to the children of Brazil and the other is Makayla’s Haven, which is near and dear to my heart. I believe when you’re in the know then you can go do whatever is needed. My job is to spread the word and inform.

I am also passionate about health and wellness as is my active family. I spin, go to bootcamp, run, weight train and I just like to move!! My family and I work out together when we can and just hang out too! I am thankful for this opportunity and I’m looking forward to meeting new, exciting people while encouraging them to reach for the stars!
