It was 2003, I was a newlywed, working 60+ hours in corporate America and on the state executive board of an active women’s educational organization (P.E.O.). I had a full life and burning the candles at both ends. When my husband Dana found a real spoon stuck to a very old yogurt container among a pile of other on-the-go food wrappers in my car, I was embarrassed.  At the time, I wasn’t taking very good care of my car or myself.  Although we often ‘ate well,’ there were days when lunch was only coffee and a Snickers bar.  Dinner was often out to eat.  Colds plagued me and I was stressed.  At 33, I didn’t create time for self care and I didn’t know it was hurting me.

In 2006, a company-wide lay-off took me by surprise – the wake up call that shifted my life.  In my search for healing and peace of mind, I started a more regular yoga practice and incorporated fitness as a big part of my life.  A local yoga studio was hosting a talk about using real food for detoxing and wellness. The talk resonated with me so strongly that I searched out the speaker’s education. Within a week, I was enrolled at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) and on a new path.  At school in New York, I met Debbie and we clicked – you’ll find the rest of our Nourish story on our timeline.

Since that embarrassing metal spoon sighting, the major career shift and going back to school, I have become crystal clear about how real food, exercise, sleep, stress and community influences our performance. I’m on a constant quest to help people feel better.  To use my hubby as an example: Dana is a dentist and nationally ranked master’s cyclist, so performance is key to his success. I bring this up as a proud plug for his artistic talent as a cosmetic dentist and because I believe our food and lifestyle choices are making him a better athlete and better doctor.  We are a good team, he gets me moving and I keep him well fed.  And our furry faces are a big joy in life.

One of my goals as a wellness advocate is to walk this earth the best I can and use mother nature’s tools along the way.  A love of nature and fascination with essential oils led me to seek out the best quality company to partner with. I am a leader and educator with Young Living – the global leader in distillation and distribution of quality essential oils.  The company is a steward of the earth, the founder a farmer and all of their products are focused on living a life of wellness.  I use these essential oil gems to support me physically, emotionally and spiritually. I run regular educational classes and DIY projects both in my office and via Facebook.  Want to know more about the wellness benefits of essential oils?

I love working with women in transition, athletes, couples, college students, and the corporate culture to infuse sustainable food choices and lifestyle habits to help people like you show up in life looking, feeling and performing your best.

In an effort to engage and support other entrepreneurial women on their quest to be their best for their businesses, I co-lead W.I.N.G.S. {women, inspiring, networking, giving and supporting}.  

When I’m not playing in the kitchen, playing with oils or sharing ideas on how to be more resilient, you’ll find me digging in the dirt, enjoying a sail or reading a good book with my feet in the sand.  I’m currently taking on new clients.  Connect with me at wendy@nourishcoaches.com
