Story

March 2015 my life was turned upside down when I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. Three weeks later I had a double mastectomy, and later 5 months of chemotherapy and then 6 weeks of radiation. In an effort to improve my own health, in 2017 I studied with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. 

Forming bonds with fellow cancer patients was vital to my emotional healing, and I found I could make a difference in other's lives. In 2018 I founded my Holistic Health Coach business, Inspired Vitality, to provide resources, practical tips, and emotional comfort to people impacted by cancer. 

Over the years I've had opportunities to do public speaking. I was planning more events when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, so I started my YouTube channel, Inspired Vitality, to bring educational videos about cancer. (Look for one about World Cancer Day, to be published 2/3/2021.) More recently I have begun sharing my story as a guest on various podcasts. 

I have found sharing my story is healing for me, and helpful to those that follow. While cancer does not define me, I have allowed it to shape me.  https://inspiredvitality.life/
