This is the time of year when the ocean eats our FL beaches and we lose our tans. 🤣 Cold ocean therapy is best if you avoid the sharks, though. 🧜🏼♀️💦 Can’t wait to be back in the ocean! Been sick at home working on my personal training and Biohacking. Ordering Bellydancing scarves for my Zumba classes, as well! Can’t wait to start teaching some more Bellydancing! ❤️💃🏼 Fun Facts About Me: I am a Veterinary Surgical Expert. A Robert Noyce Science Scholar for my extensive research on Human Nutrition, Obesity, and Eating Disorders during my MS. An Adjunct Professor. For fun along the way, I obtained my Yoga Cert., Zumba Cert., AKC Dog Training Cert., Equine Mgt, and Beef Cattle Mgt, as well as many others. I have been surfing since I was 3YO. Windsurfing since I was 5YO. I love Kitesurfing, now. Best development ever! I played soccer for over 18Y, one of those in France, some in College. I am internationally trained as an Equestrian in Hunter/Jumper and Steeplechase. Which I love BTW. I do modeling jobs for fun, some are internationally known companies and campaigns—I was born into it. I’m a Professional Dancer and Choreographer. I’m a Professional Artist. My Professional Photography is part of my art. Oh, and I like cold water therapy in the form of a polar bear swim in the ocean with the sharks. That’s not all there is to know about me . . .

I'm so grateful I grew up on the coast, on an island, in BC, and continue to call the coast my home. I will practice gratitude daily because life is always changing, and there's always something you can be grateful about. Plus it makes me pretty darn happy! #coastalgirl#gratitude#practicewhatyoupreach#westcoast#bestcoast
Where are you in your journey?
Have you taken the reins of your dreams,
Or do they run wild
in the fields of make-believe?
The majority of us 1st world people are so lucky to have lives that are malleable, that we can shape with care and believing hands. Dream, and dream big. But chase your dreams.
I’m grateful for the opportunities each day presents. I am grateful for the life I was given, and that I can have control over it.

I’ve always been really self conscious of my body. I have always been the biggest in my family, and when I was younger nothing would let me forget that,: my older sister was a model and my little sister was a track star and there was (and still is - but healthier) constant discussion around diets.
I’ve had a lot of anxiety around food ever since I can remember. Either from being emotional and turning to food, or being in distress because of the many different health diets I’ve had to go on. To this day I’ll often be in a grocery store and just say f#*! it and walk out without anything because I just don’t want to search anymore.
Don’t get me wrong, I always eat and thankfully have never suffered from an extreme eating disorder, as I know many have. My heart goes out to anyone who has gone or is going through that.
It’s never been any one body part for me that I’ve felt icky about but my body as a whole, my inner dialogue was destructive in general - about my legs, my butt, my stomach, my arms, my face... there was never any celebration of the gift that my body is to me.
Today the incredible beauty and power I see on Instagram inspires me, the amazing and inspiring women who are on their own journey, who share their own body struggles light the fire in me to keep moving forward and celebrate the body I have and the woman that I am. .

Hello Lovelies! I’m enjoying a rare Saturday “off” (work or any other commitments). _____________________
I’m going to expose my inner nerd here and tell you that I just went to see the newest Star Wars with Carter and my dad. Annnnd. I loved it! It brings back all the fun childhood memories made with my dad and older half brother. I always dreamed of Princess Leia hair. Like, total goals.
Do you have a secret nerdy side? What is it? Dish!
One last wedding this Saturday is the “grand finale” to my 2017 season. (@hanbart Eek, I can’t wait!) There are so many beautiful memories in 2017. My couples this year (you guys know who you are) crushed it. Romance, kindness, warmth, and all the pretty. I still can’t believe it all really happened.
Sending love and joy to each of you as we begin afresh in 2018.
My couples in this new year are so incredible. I can’t wait for each special wedding day. #2018ready#2017bestnine
I'm in full priming-mode for the coming of the new year. I've been on this healing journey for a long time now, and I can feel myself getting healthier.
This coming year is about choice. And everything that word has to offer.
We have the choice to feel the way we feel.
We have the choice to act on those feelings.
We have the choice to stay in certain environments or to leave.
We have the choice on who we allow into our lives and who we do not.
We have the choice on what kind of life we want to live... and then we can choose to create it!
This year the only thing I asked for for Christmas was experiences: to have the opportunity to do the things I want to do with the ones I love... like learning new things, going out of our comfort zones, and improving on who we are each and every moment. Because I truly believe that we're given these beautiful lives to move forward, to progress on who we are and constantly improve our capacity for love.
We always have a choice to improve on ourselves. For me 2018 is the year of choice. And I am so excited to start all the incredible adventures this year will bring.
Here's to priming for the new year.💜 Here's to spending time with the ones you love.💚 And here's to always working to better ourselves. 💙
We are on the road today heading north to 🇨🇦 What about you, Lovelies, where will you spend your Christmas and NYE? How do you juggle the family logistics?
Thanksgiving is always my family’s big holiday to celebrate together. Christmas is a really big deal on Ben’s side of the family. It will be full of singing, Christmas classics, gift exchanges, and alllll the delicious food. Mom Eby is an amazing cook.
Safe travels, Lovelies. Stay tuned if you want to watch a Florida girl freeze her bum off. ❄️
