You understand the Ancestral lifestyle and can get behind it; however, cooking and planning healthy meals is a lot. It seems overwhelming and complicated. You don't have time, hate cooking, or don't know how.
Eating Paleo can take some planning, but that doesn’t mean it has to take over your life. Spending hours in the kitchen isn't a requirement either. We can work together so eating Paleo becomes simple and easy.

Life happens, but what if you were able to stay on track even when a roadblock comes up? Maybe it’s even about finding that balance to keep it all together. I can help you navigate those challenges, so you reach your goals faster.

Whatever you've got going on isn’t working. It feels off, or straight-up miserable. It's possible you feel pressure to live and be a certain way because that’s what you "should" be doing. Maybe you don’t want to let anyone down. Truth is, you deserve to be happy and going after what you want.
Together let’s explore what you would really like to be doing, how you’d like to be living, and the steps to get you there.

I could give you all the insights as to who I am and what makes me, me; however, I think what you’re probably wanting to know is why it is my mission to help people shine.
I haven’t seen it all (I mean, who has?), but I’ve been through a lot of unique life experiences. I truly believe it’s a culmination of my entire life thus far that got me here, but there are a few significant moments that I’d like to share:
…so burnt out I knew I would never look back. This made me realize how much I value boundaries, self-love, and freedom.
…after I stopped forcing my mind, body, and soul to live up to unmanageable expectations. Recovering from chronic fatigue, hypothyroidism, hormonal imbalances, mercury & mold toxicity has been quite the journey. I should’ve expected this, but you always somehow think, “I didn’t do that much harm,” “I’ll be fine,” etc.
I absolutely wish I had the insight and bigger picture view I do now back then. These challenges led me to delve deeper into the functional and ancestral lifestyle I was already semi-living to regain my health.
Becoming a part of and eventually managing Paleo Leap (a resource for all things Paleo) renewed my sense of meaning. It filled me up with warmth every time I read a success story from one of our readers. Knowing that I was making an impact on people and their health was the complete opposite of anything I ever felt designing clothes.
…I saw firsthand how health, and life itself, co-exist. Our normal didn’t look like anyone else’s, from following strict protocols, diet restrictions, to limiting indoor spaces, you name it. I learned the importance of self-care as a caretaker; and how to manage and make the best of limitations. It took perseverance and adaptability, and it changed my whole perspective on life.

I haven’t seen it all (I mean, who has?) but I’ve seen and experienced unique things. They have brought me to this point, valuing life and health and shining light on them. I truly believe it’s a culmination of my entire life thus far that got me here, but there are a few significant moments that I’d like to share.
Having never had an external source to speak to about my goals and day-to-day happenings, our time has brought up a lot of positive aspects for me. It's been great to have Ashley help point out different points in my behaviors/actions that I don't see myself. This has been the biggest takeaway for me. I love having convos resulting in action/takeaways as well.
I worked with Ashley over a huge transition period of my life. Entering this time was very daunting and Ashley took the stress away by helping me take a step back, see the bigger picture, and then figure out how to break everything down into manageable steps. Whilst working with her my confidence in my decision-making increased, and I was able to re-focus and re-evaluate where my key growth areas should be. I highly recommend her!
I would recommend working with Ashley and Ginny. I really enjoyed getting to see my colleagues outside of the most stressful times of day when we usually pass each other at top speed. It's been extremely beneficial to have regular check-ins where I'm reminded that I'm not alone and others are feeling similarly. This kind of work helps preserve the humanity in an organization (as opposed to the American tendency to try and turn everything into a machine).Christina
I walked away from every meeting feeling a little bit lighter and breathing a little bit easier. I've made meaningful connections with my colleagues and learned to be more kind and patient with myself. I'd definitely recommend Ginny and Ashley -- this was a professional development meeting I actually didn't mind staying after work for. The space that Ashley and Ginny created for us to share and have genuine conversations made this the most meaningful team-building experience I've ever been a part of.Julian
