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”. I am the proverbial “forever student.” I just can’t get enough information. This has served me well and I’ve grown quite fond of this unquenchable thirst for knowledge.
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 our horse pasture as a teenager to “stay in shape”. Took an insurmountable amount of step-aerobic classes, trained for marathons, became a certified personal trainer in my mid-twenties to take my passion of physical wellness to the next level of helping others.
Today I have found myself as a routine meditator, daily Peloton rider and RYT 200 hour certified Yoga instructor. Clearly health and fitness have been a priority to me and I have found them to be a key to all of the success I find.Throughout my adolescence and well into my young adulthood, I would describe myself as a semi-functioning anxious bundle of nerves. Anxiety ruled my life 24×7. Years ago, 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.
After years of research, education, seeking professional and spiritual guidance, lots of trial and error and self discovery I found myself in a whole new world with way less anxiety, calmer mind, stronger body and a thirst to take what I have learned to others.
This led me to Integrative Nutrition school through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in 2018 and now Mind Body Green’s Functional Nutrition Coaching program (yes, always, always learning!).
As you can see, my 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. Well, life loves to throw little (or big) curve balls our way. A breast cancer diagnosis in 2019 knocked my trusty legs right out from underneath me. 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. And here I am. And all is well. (I kicked that cancer to the curb, by the way!)
I now have the privilege of both leading Operations and Business Development for my husband and I’s tech start-up, DataLiteracy.com, but also guiding individuals to live their best, most optimal, healthiest, happiest life as a health coach and yoga instructor. What a gift!
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, fun and relatable content with you for years to come!
I live in Bellevue, Washington with my husband, my teenage son, my two teenage step-sons along with our trusty furry companion, Winston. We love the outdoors and you’ll find us backpacking and kayaking throughout the PNW in the summer, skiing in the winter, and of course yoga’ing and sipping good wine!
I welcome each and every one of you to Becky with the Good Life
