5 Things You May Not Know About Amy
I love eating a rainbow on my plate AND eating dark chocolate Justin's peanut butter cups. I know that the most happy way to joyful health is not through depriving yourself and “more rules”. It’s through a simple customized approach to what works for you and brings you joy,
I value a “no rules” approach to nutrition and wellness. However, I also value supporting my clients with a simple plan that is sustainable and doesn’t feel like “one more thing to do”. We have SO much to do and just go go go. Our nervous systems need love and a few deep breaths. How we feel matters! I believe more play, less rules and more joy is key!
I love wearing bold red lipstick, fashion, art, being creative, and wearing big fun earrings. My favorite colorful earrings are from Mazuri Designs in Uganda ( part of Girl Up Initiative Uganda). More info about our partnership with Mazuri and our first earring collaboration coming soon! Art and creativity in any form is a catalyst for joy and is so essential especially now!
* The Nourished Girls Project is a proud partner with Girl Up Initiative Uganda's Adolescent Girls Program.
12 years ago I started my “nutrition” business called Busy Bee Nutrition. I hosted and led nourishing cooking classes in my home with other new “tired” moms. I craved community, sharing stories and making simple nourishing food with other moms. Over the years, my business has evolved but my values, purpose and passions have always stayed the same. I am passionate about inspiration, joy, being creative, giving back, building community, sharing stories and making wellness simple!
I love to dance! My favorite music is old school R&B and hip hop. I am a big believer in bringing in more fun and joy into pockets of my day (even if it's just for 5 mins a day). I have a “live your joy” philosophy with my clients. Being a joy generator inspires myself and others to let the silly in, feel more energized and less stressed.
