Let me introduce myself. My name is Summer, I am a work at home mom to 5 beautiful children! Which is as chaotic as it may sound ūüėČ . I started my journey to a healthier lifestyle after my 4th child was born.


I have a passion for helping other busy moms learn how to improve their health, as well as their families, one small step at a time.


Like so many other moms I had a habit of putting my kids and husband’s needs ahead of my own. Then one day I realized because I was putting their needs ahead of my own I had become 60 – 70 lbs. overweight and I didn’t really have the energy anymore to be present in their lives like I wanted to be.

So, not only was I not able to take care of their needs I was not taking care of me.


It was time to put myself and my needs first so that I could better serve my family. It took some time but I learned how to be a healthier & ultimately happier version of myself.


It is my mission here to help you achieve the freedom that a healthy lifestyle can bring!
