I'm also a wife, mom, vegetarian, worm-farmer, and tree-hugger. Although I coach people of all ages, I specialize in helping women "of a certain age," redefine themselves and their lives. To me, Wellness is about being happy with yourself, making healthy food and lifestyle choices, and thriving as a creative being. To find out more about my personal Wellness Journey, read on!
Cathrine's Wellness Journey
My wellness journey began in the early 1990s, when I was a teen competing in pageants. At that time, I believed the lower the number on the scale, the healthier I was. So, I survived my pageant life by living on diet soda and rice cakes.
Following pageants came a stint as a professional model in NYC during the time that Heroin Chic was everything. Busy days were followed by long nights in smoke-filled nightclubs. The money was great, my health was not. Years of disordered eating, malnutrition, and pounding workouts were taking their toll. I developed chronic migraines that were debilitating, and I lost days at a time. That's when I knew I had to start down a healthier path.
Flash forward decades later, and I have found my path to Wellness as a trained Holistic Wellness Coach, Creativity Coach, Certified Yoga Teacher, and Energy Healer. Through my journey to Wellness, I have discovered that my greatest professional joy comes from helping others learn what Wellness means to them, and in helping them to achieve their goals.
