Who I Am...

I love to laugh, learn, play, create, collect, eat, dance, move and connect.  You'll find me in the thrift shops that I frequent while searching for all things vintage and clothes that I won't pay full price for.  I'm cheering on the sidelines at lots of different sporting events as I watch my son play the sports that are his oxygen for life or at the barn watching my little girl astride a thousand pound horse, commanding his attention and glowing with confidence and determination.  I'll be on my mountain bike, riding behind a thrill seeking trail surgeon that cuts through the woods with skilled precision, in awe of the teenager that was once my little boy. I love sitting next to my husband on the porch of our rustic little camp on the shores of a magical place where time is ours as a family to explore, relax, play and recharge.  I'd choose an "I love you" over an iPhone, iPad, or iPod!  I'd pick a farmer over a franchise, a touch over a text, face to face over Facebook.

The principles that Living SWELL are based on help to guide my decisions in life each day.  This business was born out of a desire for balance in my life and a need to positively impact the world.  I was a stay at home Mom to my children for years.  The older they became, the more I yearned to make my dream a reality while continuing to carry on the role I had assumed with my family.  Sharing in the wellness journeys of other's is a privilege that I cherish.  We talk, laugh, cry, grow, stretch, work, and dig deep inside.  I see the changes in my clients and they inspire me to wake up every day being the best me that I can possibly be.  Sometimes that looks like balanced meals, arriving on time, honoring healthy boundaries, and helping with homework.  Somedays it looks like a snack from a box, ten minutes late for everything, being over extended and under equipped and not being able to figure out the crazy new ways they want our kids to divide or multiply!  Each day brings with it a clean slate, a new adventure and the chance to make choices with our best selves in mind.  I love being able to make a difference in this world!
