About / Philosophy
Active in sports her whole life, she loves playing volleyball, basketball, tennis, running, hiking, softball, and yoga. Many things lead Wendy on her path to inspiring others to live a healthier lifestyle. In her late teens and early twenties, she battled an eating disorder. That struggle taught her that breaking old habits imbedded from emotional traumas is very challenging to overcome, but not impossible. This experience taught her the importance of healing the mind and soul first, then the body will follow. Wendy had many mentors along the way that guided her to a healthy way of eating and exercise. She competed in 2 figure competitions which lead her to gain a better understanding of the types of foods, portions, and exercises to incorporate that ultimately helped her to regain control over her body.
Wendy was accepted into a nursing program in 2006, which she completed in 2007. While practicing nursing she realized that many of the patients she was caring for could really benefit from diet and exercise regimens. That’s when she decided to change gears and become certified as a trainer. For over 15 years, she has been helping people work through medical issues holistically instead of pharmaceutically. She has a belief that anyone can heal their mind, body, and soul by incorporating good whole nutrition, exercise, and meditation or yoga into a daily routine. She has experience working with many medical conditions including fibromyalgia, tendinitis, Crohn’s, Celiac Disease, A.S.D., Type 1 & 2 Diabetes, heart disease, injuries to shoulders, knees, and back, and many other conditions.
