Nice to Meet You

Hi, I'm Jo!

A little about me:

I have been a multi-business entrepreneur in the community health and wellness industry for over 15 years. As a Speaker, Published Best-Selling Author, Holistic Nutrition & Transformational Lifestyle Coach, Top 40 under 40, National Food Insecurity Advocate, and Mindful Eating Educator I am passionate about collaboratively working with you to Rejoice in the Body, Mind, & Life you desire.
Growing up in a household impacted by mental health and addictions, then suffering my health crisis due to lack of balance, fueled my multiple business ventures, fierce advocacy work in the system, and my deep desire to connect others to what they need to be well. 
I empathize with how hard it can feel trying to juggle it all and find time to care for yourself. As a result of my perfectionist “go-go” work ethic, trying to be the mom that could “do all the things”, and simply not slowing down to make my own well-being a priority resulted in my body pulling the emergency stop break on me.
My body communicated it had enough of my lifestyle in the forms of multiple gut issues, hormonal imbalances, anxiety, and burnout. I wish I knew then, what I know now. I want you to Regain Balance, Reclaim Health, & Rejoice in the ‘healthy’ & happy life you are so deserving of.
