About me: I grew up in the Midwest and currently live in Colorado. I strive to live every day to the fullest and find the blessings in each moment. I’m energetic, positive and on a mission to help others live a happier lifestyle.
Becoming a twin mom
My girls were born on January 30th and it was the happiest day of my life. The pregnancy was difficult to say the least; although we felt so excited and blessed, I had all the usual pregnancy symptoms plus was considered high risk. At 31 weeks I was put on bed rest for two weeks with preeclampsia and Paisley + Berkley made their appearance at 33 weeks and 4 days. The twins spent 45 + 46 days in the NICU and they are still on oxygen because of the high altitude where we live. We count our blessings that we were able to bring the girls home just before everything changed with the pandemic. Having my daughters truly makes us appreciate every day with them because we’ve created these two incredible new lives.
My fitness journey
I was always athletic and played soccer my whole childhood. In college I wanted to maintain my healthy lifestyle but no longer had the sport to help keep myself in shape. Unfortunately, I had no idea what that healthy lifestyle should look like so I would run countless miles on the treadmill and then binge eat my cravings. It started to become an unhealthy cycle and I began to obsess over what I was eating and how many hours I needed to put into the treadmill. Then I got involved withBeachbody, which freed me from the obsession and taught me balance. I now enjoy my food to fuel my body while still having treats time to time. Being able to get an effective workout in in 30 minutes is absolutely ideal for my busy life.
Founding Happy Healthy Humble
I started Happy Healthy Humble for my own health; I needed my mindset to change. Then, when I realized how incredible this lifestyle was, I knew I needed to help my friends and family feel as good as I did. So it turned into a movement of people striving for a happier and healthier lifestyle. When I started the business, I was a kindergarten teacher and photographer! I loved both roles, but truly found my passion and purpose with becoming a full time health coach.
My daily routine
Before having twins, I would wake up early and lead a workout group of 50-100 women who workout together globally via Zoom each morning. After my workout I read personal development and do some gratitude journaling, followed by prayer and meditation. Throughout the day I run accountability groups to encourage and support women who have committed to reaching their health and wellness goals. The rest of the day would be filled with training calls with my clients, group calls and team calls.

My skincare challenges
I have always struggled with my skin. I used to have oily skin in high school and I’ve always been acne prone on my forehead and chin. When I was pregnant, I began suffering from cystic acne. My whole face would throb and there truly was no relief. Right now my skin is not perfect but it has definitely improved. I love FRÉ because of how pure and clean it is, and I connect to the values behind it.
Before I found FRÉ I used to use products with harsh chemicals. I thought they would treat my acne but nothing helped. It was actually nerve wracking when FRÉ reached out and I really thought the products wouldn’t work for me. I’ve been using FRÉ every night for about 4 months now and I love how my skin feels, and looks, and glows! My favorite FRÉ is DETOX ME. When the girls are sleeping, I have a bubble bath and put it on. I used to feel that face masks dried my skin out but DETOX ME is wonderful. I also use PURIFY ME and REVIVE ME before bed, and any time I go out I apply PROTECT ME.
