Genesis of “Living At Your Finest”
The diet-culture cycle and yo-yo weight fluctuations paralyzed me for numerous years. Despite my passion for Holistic Health, I quickly realized there was much to learn about attaining and maintaining Optimal Holistic Health and Wellness. The plethora of undesirable food choices and unhealthy lifestyles led to my numerous chronic conditions, of which communities of color, unfortunately, bear the brunt of the impact. I went on a quest to end my unhealthy lifestyles, which manifested in hypertension, osteoarthritis, excess weight, and chronic fatigue in my early thirties. This journey led to the birthing of “Living At Your Finest Wellness.” I learned to get to the root cause of symptoms by attacking it at the source instead of solely relying on medications as a badge—WellCare instead of sick care, skills instead of pills, and whole person instead of processes.
Life has never been the same again for me because when you LIVE AT YOUR FINEST, body, mind, & spirit, HEALTH and WEIGHT WELLNESS become inevitable.
I adopt a Fun, Fundamental, and Faith-Based Framework as I integrate tools, tactics, tricks, and tips from my wellness journey and extensive professional training into my Direct Patient Care practice, Courses & Coaching Programs, Speaking engagements, and educational and empowering resources using my YouTube Channel and Podcast Show.
Let’s journey together as Living At Your Finest Health Champions!
