What is Life FAB Life?
If you’re like most of my community, you’re a smart, savvy, high-achieving professional in the business world. You take pride in your work, accomplishments and successes.
But it’s come at a cost. You’re also overworked, overtired and overstressed. Maybe you feel like this:
Does this sound like you?
I want you to know that you’re not alone. I’ve been there too.
I’ve been working in Silicon Valley for almost 20 years. I’ve seen and dealt with the pressures of working in a fast-paced world. I’ve experienced firsthand, the tolI that it takes on your health. Insomnia, anxiety, depression, IBS, skin breakouts - I’ve battled them all.
And if you’re like me, you’re tired of battling with these issues. You want a long-term solution, not band-aids, that will help you feel revitalized again.
Live FAB Life started in 2015. At that time, I was in great shape. On the outside, I appeared to be fit and healthy, but on the inside, I was far from it. I had overtrained, my gut was a mess, and my hormones were imbalanced.
When asked what my end goal was, I said, "I want to live a fit and balanced life." Thus, Live FAB Life was born.
Now, I’m an Allied Functional Medicine Practitioner, and Holistic Health Coach qualified through the Functional Nutrition Alliance and the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. I’m also a 21-Day Sugar Detox Coach, a podcaster, a program manager and a 19-year veteran of Silicon Valley.
Most people just want to lose weight. That’s their ultimate goal. But gas and bloating, skin breakouts, poor sleep, obesity - they're all signs of bigger problems. And when you step back and look at your health from a bigger perspective, it’s the bigger problems that you need to solve - and that’s the kind of work that I do.
I’m not a weight loss coach. I work with the overworked and overstressed who suffer from fatigue, IBS, skin conditions and burnout. I help them understand that they have the power to be in control over their own health. Weight loss can be a by-product of the work that I do, but it’s not the ultimate milestone that we aim for.
Taking a functional approach means:
Understanding the whole person and all aspects of their life
Addressing the environment and circumstance in which their signs, symptoms or diagnosis manifested
Filling the communication and educational gaps that exist between doctor, healthcare practitioner and the client
The work that I do goes beyond coaching. It’s not just about diet and exercise. It’s changing your mindset and the way that you think about your health - to consider your history, environment, community, culture - everything that influences your well-being.
It’s not just about being your cheerleader (though I am in your corner!), but also educating you on what’s going on with your whole body, how everything is connected, how to make correlations and connect the dots, then making diet and lifestyle modifications that work for you, that will help you to reach your goals.
