Who I am

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 from teaching children to managing an assessment program for 11,000 students. When I hit 40 I feel 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 needed 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.

I loved teaching and I had always been passionate about living a healthy lifestyle that included my mind, body and relationships. I began exploring network marketing because I found products that were natural and I enjoyed the challenge of the industry. I dabbled in that for a few years and then one day an online program fell into my lap 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. I decided to go for it!

So here I am…I am now a Health and Life Coach striving to be the healthiest version of me and enjoying teaching others to do the same in my spare time. Follow me on Facebook and Instagram and Join one of my 14 or 28 Day Challenges.
