Hi, I’m Vickie. A 40’s something – sometimes empty nester ready to take life by the horns, and rock my second act.
My journey through burnout led me to the field of nutrition and then to discover essential oils and yoga too. My passion is tailoring programs to suit your needs so that you feel the best that you can possibly feel and are able to go “balls to the wall” and live your best life.
If you’re ready to take your health into your own hands and are sick to death of settling for mediocre, we need to talk!
My father’s health crisis at 52 changed my entire outlook on the world. It was possibly my biggest pivotal moment to date, and changed how I viewed the world, how I spent my time and money, how I raised my children, my views of my own health and my place in the world. It was BIG.
Fast-forward about 10 years and I faced my own health crisis. Believe me when I tell you that I tried everything. Whether it was mainstream or alternative, I went all in, trying to reclaim some semblance of a normal life. It was all in vain until I met with a Holistic Nutritionist who helped me to change not only my health, but the course of my life.
Up until this point, I’d been motoring along, somewhat unhappily in my screamingly successful retail business – the one that I’d spent 13 years of my life building, from the ground up. It was my baby. My real life babies were growing up and leaving the nest. I was unhealthy, 35lbs overweight, and miserable. But I was wearing my happy face, so nobody knew.
I believe that people come into our lives for a reason. There’s nothing random. If you’re on my journey, there’s a reason that you’re here, and a reason that I’m on yours. This woman (my Holistic nutritionist) truly changed the course of my life and I am eternally grateful to her and to the Universe for bringing us together.
She introduced me to a whole other world of possibility. I didn’t even KNOW that I wanted to do something else – or that it was possible, until I started to reclaim my health. I worked on getting healthy and gradually was drawn more and more into realm of Holistic Health. I decided to close my thriving business and go back to school in my 40’s to study Holistic Nutrition. What a wake up call THAT was! Since then, I’ve also become a Certified Yoga Teacher. If you had told me, 10 years ago, that I’d be teaching yoga and holistic nutrition, in leggings no less, I’d have thought you were crazy!
Along the way, another woman crossed my path and changed the course of my life, yet again. This time, it was a doTERRA Wellness Advocate and to her, I am also eternally grateful. doTERRA essential oils provided a much needed vehicle in my nutrition practice for my clients who longed to see immediate results or relief from discomforts, while working through their health challenges. You know how it is. It’s SO HARD to stick to a plan when you’re uncomfortable or experiencing cravings, or headaches, digestive discomforts and hormonal upset. doTERRA also provided me with the income that I needed while I built my nutrition practice and dug myself out of a hole that we were in.
It is my belief that for the chronic, crippling state of “health” that has become our norm, “alternative” therapies are where it’s at. When we give the body what it needs, it is equipped to heal itself. I will help you to do that. All you have to do is DECIDE that IT’S TIME.
In our society, we underestimate what diet and lifestyle will do and overestimate what medicine can do. I urge you to take a look at Holistic Health Care and take your health into your own hands.
The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well.
