Growing up, in the city of San Antonio, TX there were no conversations of health and wellness, but this curiosity became a force for me in my early childhood. Even though I grew up playing outside, swimming, climbing trees, and playing kickball with friends, there was something that was missing when the adults I witnessed didn’t model the continuation of activity and being outdoors. It took an active determination.
When I was 12 years old, I knew I wanted to be healthy at every stage of life. I learned then that we each have the power to make our life different, even if we're not sure exactly how to make it happen. Since then, I've been fueled by this truth. It has supported me in my continual growth and evolution because of my strong commitment to staying open, curious, and learning.
One of my passions is to help young kids start a conversation and a knowing that if you are breathing, you have the choice to plant an intentional seed of self-care. Now as a mom and entrepreneur, keeping these values are more challenging than ever to give the time that I need to self-care. To me this means will wellness practice needs to have a range of exercise, movement therapy, and key restorative treatments engaged with professionals to help move me forward.
