HI, I’M KELSEY!
My journey into the world of health and nutrition began when I started my family in 2006. Months after having my first child, I was in terrible health and 50 pounds overweight. It was time to change and find health and healing. Not only for my family, but I needed it for me.
I started to exercise for the first time in my life. I paired this with trendy diets that helped me drop weight fast! While I appreciated the quick changes, I didn’t feel that my body was thriving. I had low energy, poor sleep, mood swings and I was starting to develop disordered food behaviors. I didn’t like where my mindset was going, even as I “looked” healthier. I didn’t feel it.
I started exploring holistic health and nutrition in order to obtain the answers I was looking for. Why was it so hard to lose those last 10 pounds? What was my body trying to tell me with all of these signs and symptoms I was experiencing? There was a reason. I just needed to find out what that was! I spent the next 5 years completely transforming my life. I took the time to uproot the trauma, pain and suffering from my childhood, adolescence and even much of my adulthood! I found myself completely immersed in all things health, wellness, nutrition and physiology. I fell in love with Integrative Health and Functional Nutrition and Medicine. In the midst of all of this new and exciting discovery, my husband and I decided to open our own fitness facility and wellness center. We are the proud owners of Elevation Fitness and Performance. We now have a team of fitness, health and nutrition experts who change the lives of people every day.
I truly believe that life is about being honest with yourself and learning that you are worthy enough to fight for. My best days are the days that are filled with the empowerment of patients and clients to be their own healthcare advocate! It’s truly my honor to be their partner throughout the journey of finding their deepest health.
It’s not okay that so many of us live our lives in chronic pain! It damages our soul with every passing day and I know I don’t have to tell you that our time on this Earth is precious. Everyone has a beautiful and unique purpose to fulfill in their lifetime. My divine purpose in life is to guide others to find joy and obtain optimal health and healing. I can only pray that my divine purpose launches others to find theirs! One by one, we will make the world a better place for our children and grandchildren.
