Hi! First and foremost, I just want to say thank you so much for stopping by my page.
So who am I?

My name is Melanie. Born and raised in Chicago, IL. I am a Wife, Fur Mom to 1 dog (Chewy) and 2 cats (Moo Moo and Raven), Nurse, Army Veteran, and Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach! I have a passion for health and I want people to live their best lives!

A little about me…..

All through my life, I was just “normal”. I wasn’t the best at anything but I didn’t suck either. I kinda just went through life just to get by. Went to college not really knowing what I was going to do, but knew I wanted to go the medical route because I come from a family of nurses. Fast forward, I chose nursing because that ensured me job security and I didn’t really know what else to do.

My life went as planned. Graduated high school…. graduated college in 4 years… got a job right away and started working my life away. That’s what life’s all about right? WRONG!! I wasn’t satisfied! I was BORED. I knew there was more for me and there was more to life than just working, eating and sleeping. I NEEDED more out of life.

So what did I do?! JOINED THE ARMY! I wanted to experience life. I wanted to travel. I wanted new experiences. I needed my loans paid! That ultimate decision essentially changed my life FOREVER!

Met my husband, Ryan, at the my duty station which was Seoul, Korea. Lived in different areas such as Korea, Washington DC, Maryland, Georgia, Hawaii and now living in New Jersey. I also have 2 awesome cats and 1 doggy who entertains me on a daily basis. After 4 years in the army, I decided it wasn’t for me and I got out. Tried to continue nursing, but it still wasn’t for me. I knew I was meant to do something else with my life. I knew I wanted to live life by my own rules. I want to be able to pick up and go if needed. I wanted to make my own hours. Soooo…. I made the decision to work for myself and become the awesome person that I am today! I am an entrepreneur and I want to change as many lives as I can.

So why health coaching?! I still love what nursing is all about. Taking care of patients but also educating them as well. I wanted to still use my nursing skills but still help people at the same time, just on my own terms. Nowadays, you go to the doctors and they barely have time to figure out what is really going on with you. But don’t worry! There’s always a medication to fix you! Womp womp. I wanted to be on the side of prevention vs treating the problem after it’s happened! I want to educate people on choices that you can make that involve food and lifestyle changes, because IT’S POSSIBLE TO HEAL YOURSELF FROM WITHIN! So here I am…. just your average gal, empowering you to live your best life through health and lifestyle changes! Finally getting to do what I LOVE! And I want to share that passion with others and help them on their journey as well!

 Live life to the fullest because you only get one!


So I hope you follow me in my journey of enjoying life and experiencing all that it has to offer!

Through life motivation.. my favorite workouts.. nutrition.. overall wellness and travels and just BALANCING it ALL! Together, I can help you to bring out that INNER AWESOMENESS that you already have within!
