Just a few years ago, I had so much pain, it was difficult to get out of bed and get moving. My stress levels were out of control, I was unhealthy and overweight, and the business I had at the time was sucking the life out of me.
I owned a small hair salon with a few employees. The constant struggle of running a traditional, profitable business left me with so much stress that it was deteriorating my body. On top of hiring, training, and coaching employees, I was also servicing hair clients 40+ hours a week, standing on my feet, with my arms outstretched & forward, causing many repetitive motion neck & back injuries to my body. Those injuries, coupled with chemical exposure & the chronic stress, caused a slew of diseases including asthma, arthritis, and many other autoimmune disease symptoms. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired all the time! I knew I could not possibly go on living like this so I made a commitment to focus on getting healthier and figuring out a better way to keep my business going. First, I reduced my work schedule and implemented better management systems in the salon. Then I started taking high quality Shaklee supplements, meditating, and exercising. I felt better, but not great. I was getting healthier and feeling better, but something else was wrong. I just couldn’t quite put my finger on it…
The Turning Point
Sometimes when you need it most, life kicks you in the butt and makes you do what you need to do. In 2014 I lost a few stylists to another salon and was left with just my daughter and myself to do everything. I had been the only stylist in the salon before and did just fine, but this was different. I had a nagging feeling that I wasn’t supposed to rebuild and do it all over again. It felt like the universe was trying to tell me something. So I just stopped, reevaluated what I wanted to do with my life, and decided to simplify EVERYTHING!
My home got a thorough decluttering as I threw out, donated and sold a ton of stuff. Then I sold most of my salon equipment and moved into a small office space, creating a beautiful private hair studio. I let go of the few clients that chose not to come with me and took better care of the ones that stayed. Then, something magical happened: I began to feel amazing and even made more money, all while working a lot less!! I was finally where I needed to be!
Who knew I could do this?
So, that brings me to today. Now I work only 3 1/2 days a week, servicing my favorite hair clients at my studio, am a Healthy Living Consultant, and Independent Shaklee Distributor. I have a flexible schedule, lots of free time, and make a full-time income. I am healthy, happy and live much more simply than ever before. My family is also excited to have a wife, mom & grandma that has time to spend with them.
I’m not a doctor, a lawyer or a “health guru” – just a woman who is super passionate about helping other people, like yourself, uncover the joy of living a healthier, happier, and simpler lifestyle and to share my journey (since we’re always learning and growing).

One of the great things about Shaklee is that I get to work with some amazing people…my friends! They’re people from all walks of life – some used work in Corporate America, others work from home. Still others work in the public sector and do their Shaklee business on the side.
But there is a common denominator…we’re all guided some key principles:
Like a lot of people, I decided to build a business with Shaklee because I love the products. It’s easy for me to share something I already love with others. Why not get paid to do it, right? And once I got started, I learned that if I put in the effort, I could earn INCREDIBLE trips on top of the cash bonuses I make.
Shaklee has taken us around the world! Places like Paris, Bali, and Tuscany just to name a few. They’ve also treated us to stays in some of the most fabulous beachside resorts in Mexico, Hawaii and the Caribbean. And when we travel with Shaklee, it’s always five-star. Dream destinations with experiences usually reserved for the rich and famous.
The only thing that tops going on a Shaklee trip? Bringing someone else along! Want to go with me on Shaklee’s next trip? Let's talk.
