My vision on being Fit & Fabulous!

Fit is being at the top of my game and full of energy. I wake up ready to take on the day & no matter what physical/mental challenges I take on, I can handle it with ease. Avoiding temptations with ease and eating and cooking in a way that makes me proud of me! No after lunch/dinner dips or collapsing exhausted on the couch. Definitely not having to tell my kids I’m too tired to chase them around the living room table!

That’s what I mean by being fit. Fit is a state of mind & physical condition. It’s not a number on the scale, a clothing-size or whether my stomach is super flat & I can run a marathon. Although…if you want to train for a marathon, you go girl!

Fabulous is experiencing myself as looking and feeling amazing! It means feeling great and investing in myself!

When I’m at the top of my game and full of energy, I invest in myself, am proud of myself and feel amazing! That’s what being a Fit & Fabulous Mom is all about. Sounds good right?

A bit about me…

Born in the US (Washington) and grew up on a boat. I spent many years in the South Pacific before returning to the United States and attending University (UC Davis) where I studied Psychology and International Relations. 

After landing in The Netherlands in 2010, I returned to studying and gained a research master’s (MSc International Development) in the Communications Department at Wageningen and went on to work for The Dutch Council for Refugees.

Starting in 2012 I completed several trainings on self-development and communication, became a coach and studied to become a certified Hormone Balance Trainer. 

I’m a proud generalist and my interests change frequently. This means I’ve accumulated a broad range of knowledge over the years. Combining what I’ve learned creates workshops, coaching tracks and training that definitely aren’t standard and have a strong practical focus. 

Always people and health oriented, I’m also currently focused on communication and parenting skills.
