Let’s dive into the 4 main areas of health to start living an inflammation free life.Read More
I use to work 7 days a week. When you own your own business or even just really love your job, it can be extremely tempting to want to work all of the time. When I did this is led to extreme burnout and feeling extremely uninspired for a while. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from working for myself + at home, it’s to take a full day off.Read More
I love a good mask, anyone else? There is just something seemingly so luxurious about it. The only problem I found with masks was I had to have multiple in order to accomplish all of my skins needs. Which just meant more money spent. Since I’m all about affordable health, I found a way around that real quick.Read More
Why does no one ever tell you about yeast infections and UTIs?!? Listen, I know it’s not a sexy or even seemingly “socially acceptable” topic but if you’re a woman it’s a topic we need to be discussing like 100 days ago. If you’ve ever had one, you know how painful they can be and how unhelpful the doctor is.Read More

If you are vegan or are thinking about testing out veganism, figuring out how to eat out can seem intimidating. I studied up on veganism for over a year before I made the jump because I wanted to ensure I was fully prepared. So that when I went to a restaurant, my insatiable need for delicious food was in fact met.Read More
I love a food journal. It’s the first thing I get my clients to do. Besides drinking lemon water of course! There are so many ways to keep a food journal so I’m going to teach you my method for optimal health, good digestion, maximum energy, and overall increased wellness.Read More
I’m not one of those vegans who turns up their nose at "meat alternatives”. Which is odd because I never liked meat. Especially red meat. It would take me like an hour to eat 1/4 of a burger. Cutting out meat was not a struggle for me at all. Which is interesting why I’ll pour down a huge impossible burger. But that’s for another psycho-analyzation time.
I have tried Loma’s tuna in a can and really enjoyed it so I wanted to try out this easy and ready to go tuna preseasoned!Read More
I get asked often if partnering with doTERRA truly matters or do I really need to only buy from doTERRA? There are other trusted brands out there and surely doTERRA can’t be the only one with good oils, right?Read More
Start With Lemon was created when I lived in Vietnam. Needless to say, I love traveling! It’s one of those things that just makes you feel alive, you know?

My heart isn’t in just helping you get healthy. Yikes! What the heck am I doing being a health coach?

Before diving into the specifics, let’s be clear. You SHOULD be taking a probiotic. No matter how great your diet is you want to take one… for life.Read More
It is spring time in South Carolina and everything I touch is covered in pollen. My pretty dark blue car is now a delightful shade of yellow. No matter what I do, spring comes with a vengeance every year. I’ve been talking to loads of people all over the country (+ world) who are experiencing the same things. Runny nose, sneezing, itchy eyes, general gross puffiness. You have got work to do and no time for allergies!
There’s plenty we can do to naturally and holistically kick those allergies in the face.Read More
I use to think it was. I thought being healthy was a luxury that as a high school student, college student, or broke 20 something year old I couldn’t afford. I couldn’t afford $9 juices, a membership to SoulCycle, or even a 1:1 coach to help guide me through the process. Did that mean I couldn’t be healthy or at my maximum health?Read More
I love a good budget. When I was younger I never ever wanted to spend money. I was a hoarder of money. In my opinion, not a bad thing to be. When I went to college and started my own grocery shopping, I tried to keep it around $30-40 per week for 21 meals. Oh yeah, you heard that right.Read More
Whenever I travel I want to feel energized, well, and mentally clear. Unfortunately, due to long trips, airplane air, the food, or a whole host of other reasons it can be easy to feel like crap while you travel or when you get to your destination. Not anymore!Read More
