I’m a born and raised small town girl who was raised in the Pacific Northwest with a love for the big city. I like Birkenstocks and high heels, hiking and photography, flannel shirts and cute dresses, cold streams and glamorous shopping malls, hefty hamburgers and petite fours. I now reside in Missouri where my husband is finishing up his internal medicine residency. My health journey began soon after college when I was diagnosed with PCOS and was tipping the scales at 190 pounds. Needing to get my health back after two years of cafeteria food and multiple In-n-Out runs, I did some research and found out about the Paleo way of eating. Following this way of eating for several years, losing my weight, and feeling my overall health return, I can now LIVE life! I’m here to encourage others to live their best lives by providing inspiration, encouragement, and my go-to’s for a healthy lifestyle. Our health isn’t just about a number on a scale, but about the small victories we see off the scale related to the health and the lives we gain.
