Hey, I'm Carolyn!
Two years ago, I quit a job I loved to travel to South America and see Machu Picchu.
You see - I had a deep desire inside me. I needed to make my life about more than just showing up to work everyday. I needed an adventure.
The decision wasn't easy, but it was fueled by years of suffering. This was the first opportunity I had where I felt healthy enough to explore without fear or constraint around my chronic illness.
Multiple Sclerosis, an autoimmune disease that damages the neural pathways that connect the brain and spine to the rest of your body, had controlled my abilities for years.
I was diagnosed at 20 years old and by the time I was 25, I'd spent years in severe daily pain, battling blurry vision and fatigue, and I was needing a cane more often than I wanted to admit.
In 2014, after losing the feeling on my right side for 4 months, I was forced on disability. That's when I'd finally had enough!
During that 4 months, I did my research and discovered what triggers MS. I learned how to restructure my diet, exercise routine, and mindset to negate those triggers to position myself for healing.
Within a few months, I was able to ride in a bike marathon and within a few years, I was able to lose 150 lbs. With minimal symptoms and the ability to fit in an airline seat, I couldn't wait another moment for my life to begin.
That's when I quit my job for the adventure of a lifetime!
Since then, I've been checking off my bucket list, one experience at a time, and I'm ready to coach people on how they too can live a life full of good health, happiness and adventure.
My old mission was to heal myself. Now that I've eliminated the daily symptoms of my disease, my new mission is to share that knowledge with others so they too can overcome their health concerns so they can live a life they absolutely love.
Thank you for visiting my website. Poke around and if there's any way I can help, don't hesitate to email me!
