Hello! It's me, Becky
I’m so very glad you are here!
I thought I’d share a little bit of my background and how I ended up “here”. First of all, you should know I have lived my life through the lens of curiosity since I can remember, which may have killed the cat, but thankfully it has not forsaken me as of yet! My dad used to always say “you sure ask a lot of questions for a little kid and then ruffle my soft, juvenile hair on the top of my head. Well, he was right. I was and am always wanting to know more.
I am the proverbial “forever student.” I just can’t get enough “information”. While this may have annoyed the heck out of my parents from time-to-time, it has served me well and I’ve grown quite fond of this unquenchable thirst for knowledge. It is proving to serve me well, and it is the “why” to why I am here, today.
One area that this relentless curiosity has existed since I can remember is around health. how the body works. How external entities impact the body…
…the incredibly mysterious, poignant and beautiful mind-body connection. I can remember listening to my dad’s meditation cassette tapes (this was the 80s!), flipping through his meditation books and reading labels on food (at 10 years old). I jumped on the “organic” train before anyone really knew what it was. Ran laps around my horse pasture as a teenager to “stay in shape”, taking an insurmountable amount of step-aerobic classes, crushing the Insanity series, training for marathons and becoming a certified personal trainer in my mid-twenties to take my passion of physical wellness to the next level of helping others. I found my way out of debilitating panic attacks using breath work and lavender; learning to fly on an airplane again after not flying for 8 years due to said panic attacks all using mindfulness before I even knew what that word was.
Much of my research and interest was leading me to the realization that GMOs, pesticides, chemicals, mass-consumerism, mass-consumption and dyes are killing us and our planet and I felt called to “do” something about it. I took to studying every and all forms of ancient philosophy, researching epi-genetics (look it up – fascinating!) and quantum physics, took personal retreats to Santa Fe to meet with spiritual teachers to get closer to that inner voice that was getting louder, adopted a plant-based life as my heart broke for the inhumanity of the dairy, egg and meat industry. I began reading, learning and understanding every dietary theory and how they impact the body, studying the micro-biome and the acute significance of the gut and most recently taking a 12 month integrative nutrition course and the list goes on… and on.
So, yes my mind, heart and soul have spent decades dedicated to the evaluation of mind-body wellness and a thriving human spirit. I’ve been seeking and searching for the right modality and timing to bring all of this knowledge, study and passion to life. I knew it would happen, just wasn’t sure “when”. Well, life loves to throw little (or big) speed bumps your way. I guess I was stalling too long for the liking of the universe, and a breast cancer diagnosis knocked my trusty legs right out from underneath me. Yep, me, Ms. healthy-living, meditating, conscious gal…has cancer. Talk about a sign to make a change! This was a big one. So I listened, and I took action, and I haven’t looked back. I left a successful corporate career that served me very well in numerous ways, but it wasn’t (and hadn’t been) feeding my soul. It was time to take that leap I had been standing on the edge from for so long. Where there is a stated desire and a feeling of abundance, there is your new reality. So I am not at all surprised my deepest desire is now my reality, as I have come to know that is just how it goes. And so it is. And here I am. And all is well.
I will never claim to be an expert at anything, but I will say that I have learned a lot of invaluable lessons and information that I feel empowered to share and I dare humbly say it would be a true honor to help even one person to live the good life.
One thing you can count on is that I will share “real” life with you all the while hopefully providing inspirational, motivational, insightful, fun and relatable content with you for years to come!
