Q. What does wellness mean to you?
A. For me, wellness really speaks to health, happiness, and longevity. Being in good physical and mental shape and feeling good every day is something no one should take for granted and we should all be working to preserve. It’s a constant challenge but a challenge worth pursuing.
Q. Why are you here on this journey to create BYND WELL?
A. For me, wellness is so much more than just the physical. I’ve always been into exercise and healthy eating but a few years ago I went through a pretty transformative experience – I experienced a major loss and didn’t know how to get back to ‘the light’. That’s when I began doing real introspective work. I’m a stereotypical type-A perfectionist and over-achiever. I always thought when I got to my next goal that happiness would follow, but really I just kept reaching. Through all this work, I discovered all the tools we have within us, which is everything we really need. It was incredibly empowering to me. Everyone’s story and journey is different but that was mine. As an entrepreneur I was excited by the growth in the wellness industry as a whole and wanted to help use my work for good – to help create awareness and experiences for others so that they too might find their own power to change their life for the better!
