My Story

We make our own happiness.  Having a balanced life that includes time for you is important.
We make our own happiness!

My name in NicholaMarie and I have two beautiful daughters and an amazing husband. For the past 20 years I have worked in Education. When I hit 40 I fell into a slump. People would ask me what I liked to do in my spare time and I would say “spend time with my kids.” While this was the truth and still is, I didn’t have something that was just for me. I felt like I lost who I was and so I began on a mission to find a true hobby.

What I knew was that I loved teaching and I was passionate about living a healthy lifestyle that included my mind, body and relationships. I dabbled in network marketing for a couple years and then an online certification program fell into my inbox for Health and Life Coaching. What better way to spend my free time…doing the two things I love most, teaching people how to live a healthy life. With little thought, I registered for the program.

I quickly learned I needed health coaching myself. I was a ball of stress, an emotional eater (that hid the food I was eating) and had major digestion issues that led me to taking laxatives every morning and night…yes every morning and night. I was amazed at the program and my personal results and growth. Here I am now, a Certified Health and Life Coach!

I am a Holistic Transformation Coach who helps women who are struggling with weight, lack of energy and digestion problems naturally by teaching them how to use a method that will not only give desired results but will be sustainable for life.

If I can figure it out for my body, we can figure it out for yours!
