What inspired you to do what you do professionally?
As I’ve gotten older, I began to realize that I was living a life that was less than healthy and that if I didn’t change, I would not live a healthy and happy life as I aged. So, at the age of 55 I began researching healthy living and got started working with and sharing Juice Plus+ products. I have since added into my toolbox Pampered Chef kitchen tools. Today, I work to help other women and their families get healthy through whole food nutrition, the concept of One Simple Change, through healthy cooking and the Healthy Living Revolution program.
Tell us a story of how you made a difference in someone’s life.
I think with all my clients, I am inspiring because through my example and my knowledge base, I give them hope that they too can take charge and transform their lives for the better. Many feel overwhelmed and discouraged at the thought of living a healthier life. I offer them the idea that they can transform themselves through one simple change at a time. They can start by just deciding to drink more water or eat more fruits and vegetables. I help them to understand that it is through small changes, made one change at a time that they can build momentum for permanent and lasting change.
What have you gained personally from being a member of Chicks Connect?
I have really enjoyed and benefited from the support and friendship I have through Chicks Connect. Anymore, I really can’t imagine my life without this support. The women in my chapter have encouraged me, motivated me and helped me to hold myself more accountable.
What have you gained professionally from being a member of Chicks Connect?
I have developed a greater persistence as I work my business. The women in my chapter have helped me to understand the importance of showing up and working my plan, doing the work--even when it might seem like nothing is working and I feel discouraged.
Any words of wisdom for other Chicks?
Commit to the Chicks Creed and throw yourself into connecting and interacting with other members of Chick Connect. Expect nothing and accept everything, in the way of friendship and support that is offered to you.
