who is the chocolate puma

i recently graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and am now a certified holistic health coach! i am continuing with my education at IIN through their Immersion program in 2013 and setting up my own health coaching business.

i feel the most connected to earth when i am immersed in nature; whether at the ocean or in the wood at my sit spot. i have discovered a passion for tracking and nature connection and i am beginning to develop these skills. i make time to breathe in all that mother nature has to teach me and give thanks. 

i strive to teach others about the importance of eating a healthy,  organic diet and incorporating fitness into their everyday life. I believe in the power of walking a conscious path in order to enhance spiritual and emotional growth. and i never go a day without enjoying raw chocolate!

thanks for following my blog!

my nickname “chocolate puma” was given to me by an ex-partner and now best friend (who took this picture as well!) one day she exclaimed that my face looked like a puma, as i was devouring some raw chocolate, and i was born again! 😉
