It's so nice to meet you and I'm beyond thrilled that you've made it to my website *happy dance*! Here's a spark notes version of ME! 

I'm a professional ballerina turned online holistic coach! I specialize in acne, PCOS, & confidence building. But let's back up a little bit.

My life has changed SO much over the past 5 years and it all started with a decision to stop feeling like crap all the time! I had spent my life with a "why me" attitude, wondering why I was so unlucky for having acne, why my life was somehow less, why I couldn't just be pretty and carefree, and happy like everyone else. Why did I have to be ME!?

I thought I was all alone, I had no clue there were others like me out in the world!

I just wanted to FEEL better in my own skin. I was sick of feeling like crap. I lived everyday with chronic constipation, acid reflux, acne, excess weight, and severe sugar addiction. I was sick of it! On top of that I also wanted to be able to make some super healthy babies with my super (not yet) healthy body - and with the help of my super hot husband of course, can't exactly make a baby alone! I had my amazing husband who is my rock, but at the time I didn't have the rest. 

I was not a believer in Harmony. I kind of hated myself. I felt gross in my own skin while being unfulfilled in my career. That version of me never thought she was good enough and can't even believe that the future version of herself is doing what I am doing now.

These days I've ditched the sedentary corporate lifestyle and even my professional dancing career, in order to help women feel unstoppable in their own skin. I do teach ballet on the side & I'm a certified group fitness instructor in PiYo, Insanity, & Country Heat. We live in Northern VA near DC with our son & our little yorkie.  I am an avid Harry Potter fan, TV and movie junkie including the occasional trashy reality TV show (bachelorette & bachelor pad anyone!?), I love unicorns and stretching, and I am capable of religiously binge watching almost any show I'm into on Netflix in a 24, 48, or 72 hour time period depending on how many seasons there are. 

I'm a YouTuber & Blogger trying to spread practical easy tools for clear skin & my message of hope to the world! I created this online health & wellness coaching company called The Paleo Ballerina (uhm DUH) that specializes in naturally healing hormonal acne & PCOS from the inside out. The best part of what I do is helping women learn to embrace & love themselves despite their acne - seeing them go from depressed and hopeless to living and enjoying life again is the most precious thing in the world to me because I have been there. 

I have struggled with PCOS, hormonal fertility issues, and acne. I have been able to clear my skin and PCOS naturally and it has been such a blessing. To say there were some ups and downs along the way is putting it lightly, but I stuck to my belief that there HAD to be an actual way to HEAL these ailments and I don't regret any of it. I've tried "band-aid" methods that doctors offered, magic gels from infomercials, or fake "miracle" and "natural" cures I kept finding online and none of them worked long term. The acne always came back.

So instead I figured out for myself what WORKS.

Even the resources that gave me amazing information didn't quite have all the answers, help and support I needed. And honestly it all kind of confused me! 

I am always learning, always growing, and always on the lookout for the latest information. I am my own guinea pig along with some of my close friends and clients. I will never recommend something I have no experience with or don't already love!

I do all this because no one should have to look in the mirror and feel disgusted & depressed with what they see staring back at them. But the good news is that we are not alone! It is an honor to serve women the way I do every day and I hope to find new and exciting ways to do so everyday.

 I truly believe it all begins with you! You too can have a healthy lifestyle & decide that you're worth the effort to truly heal yourself! I mean seriously. If I can do it I know that anyone can. You just need the right tools & support which is what I'm here for!

Thank you again for stopping by, I can't tell you just how much I appreciate your love & support! I hope you've enjoyed your visit and I can't wait to see you again soon!
