Who or what is your biggest inspiration?
I am the mother of 5 and grandmother of a growing bunch. My family inspires me a lot. I always want to be healthy and strong and be a good example. Basically, I want to be a healthy old lady one day!
Another group that inspires me are all the teachers I’ve had over many years. Teachers whose passion for health, spilled right over on to me. I know so many alternative health practitioners who are so awesome. Each one has opened up worlds of knowledge for me.
What makes you feel beautiful?
I feel absolutely beautiful and beaming when I see that I have helped someone be healthier, happier, or crush some crazy emotional upset with tapping (EFT). I get such a high from knowing that I was of service. Then I feel truly beautiful.
What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?
A good friend and mentor told me to dig deep and find my passion and express it to the world. Well I didn’t need to look very far. Nutrition and holistic health have been a passion for many years. For so long I was health coaching everyone I know, and of course all the people I came across at the health food store. I developed quite a name for myself among friends as a “health guru”.
So I went and got a great education from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, The Institute for the Psychology of Eating, Marie Forleo’s B-school, and Jondi Whitis (a top notch AAMET certified EFT instructor). I got my credentials in order and here I go …….Watch me fly! Passion is crazy good fuel.
What’s your favorite beauty secret or tip?
Laugh a lot and often.
How does Annmarie's mission fit into your lifestyle?
I recently committed to using only good quality, natural creams, makeup, soaps, and shampoos on my body. What a beautiful difference! People tell me I glow. Back in the day, I tried some natural products, but sorry to say they just didn’t make it. Today some amazing lines such as Annmarie’s have come out with products that are so fantastic, truly luxurious. I really believe that the standard cosmetics we see in drug stores and even the expensive ones in department stores are toxic and get absorbed into our bodies. What a scary thought!
Products such as Annmarie’s are anti-aging, non-toxic and promote good health.
One of the first recommendations I give to my clients is to clean up their environment.
I instruct people to look for the best quality they can find in food and beauty products. Go Annmarie!!!
What are your words of wisdom to other beauties out there?
Love yourself. Accept yourself fully. That will emerge as the greatest beauty you can imagine.
