Hello! I’m Bre, and this is a website!
I’m so glad you found me. I’ve been working on doing the same.
So… I suppose you’d like to know a little about me, huh? Well, I’m mama to the most beautiful girl in the world, 1-year-old Chloe, and a wiener dog named Schnitzel (get it?!). I love all things nature and adventure. My friends refer to us as “dirty hippies that shower”. I’m an RV nomad and am currently trying to decide which side of the U.S. to call home (we can just cut out the midwest, right?!). I’m currently nestled in the little town of Ocean Isle Beach, NC, but left my heart in Park City, UT. I studied biology at the University of Utah, and am currently completing my personal trainer certification. My adult career has ranged from many things- I’ve been a server, bartender, dueling pianist, commercial realtor, dog sitter, zoo keeper, and am now working in the fishing and tourism industry while starting my own business. It has been said that underwater basket weaving may be in my future.
My health has been a rollercoaster of it’s own sort. I’ve struggled with anxiety and trichotillomania since 11 years old. So you know that feeling of wanting to pull your hair out, I actually follow through with it! There have been a couple years where I’ve been able to kick it, only to pull each evil hair out one-by-one again. In fact as I’m writing this the temptation haunts me. You won’t be seeing me without a hat off anytime soon.
The “Freshman 50” hit during college taking the “Freshman 15” from JV to varsity level. Eventually I discovered mountains and all the cool stuff to do on them and that helped. Since then my weight has been see-sawing up and down while always remaining on the higher side. And you know… life happens and then you make a baby.
After having a baby and hibernating those sleepless new mom months in the grueling snowy winter of Park City, the depression set in. I started more treatment for anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder. I lost myself. It was time for a fuh-reaking change.
Fast forward through a lot of change and wild times, I’d now consider myself “fit-ish”. I enjoy exercise. I enjoy the benefits of exercise. That being said, I don’t know how the hell you runners do that cardio thing for fun unless you completely misunderstood the definition of fun. Or my favorite idea- somebody taught you wrong, simply as a joke, that running was fun. (I like to teach my daughter sound effects instead of words as a joke).
****UPDATE: After a few months of my own transformation period, I have actually picked up running as a hobby and am competing in 5ks regularly. Training for my first marathon next summer! Whaaaa?!?! I never thought this would be me!!****
I am currently coaching individuals in helping them reach their mental and physical goals and nothing has been more satisfying than to offer that support. As a transformation coach, I am very raw and real. I want to understand. I want to be able to listen and to relate to others. I want the process to be fun. As my business grows and my certifications come through (CPT October 2017!) I’ll able to do more and more, and I could not be more excited.
Once again, thank you for finding my site. Please take the time to look around and provide feedback in any way. Keep on keepin’ on!
