For many years, I tried to be what I thought people wanted me to be and tried to fit the mould. I strived for a body type that was not my own, I entered a profession that “made sense”, I did things that did not make me feel my best, I had a love/hate relationship with food and my body. I was going through the motions to get to where I thought I "should" go, not what actually made me happy.


That all changed in 2015. But before we get there, let's backtrack for a second. When I originally applied to university, it was for nutrition but somewhere along the way I was convinced that was not where the money and happiness was. So I studied commerce instead. Don't get me wrong, I am happy I did that because I learned so much and met so many wonderful people in my first few years post university. My whole point is that I knew all along what I wanted, I just discredited it and allowed external voices to override my internal one (as many of us do). For over 5 years after university, I climbed the corporate ladder but my soul was yearning for more, so I applied to nutrition school and I took a 2 year program part time while I was working full time. It was a lot of work but it was making me happy, really happy but I had no idea how I could make wellness into a career. Fast forward to 2015 again. I lost my mom to cancer and 3 months later I left a job in finance that was not lighting me up. My mom's passing showed me that life is too short to not be doing something I am passionate about.
