Hi there! I’m Angie, and I’m so glad you’re here! I guess you’re reading this because you’d like to learn a little bit about me…I’m a Registered Adult and Pediatric Cardiac Sonographer by trade, and have a degree in Exercise Science and Wellness. I’ve spent the past 18 years working in cardiology and have seen a lot of preventable chronic diseases, which has motivated me to become a Dr. Sears Wellness Institute Certified Health Coach. I’m also a Wellness Advocate for DoTerra Essential Oils, and Mom of two kids who are growing up way too quickly!
I’ve always been into health and fitness, but after having my babies, I became very passionate about it. I was determined to do whatever it takes to keep them healthy in this world full of fake food, toxins, and violent video games. There are so many challenges that we face as Moms, and that’s why I’m here, to help you navigate through some of these challenges.
Even though I’ve always been health conscious, I”ve also had my struggles. I’ve dealt with multiple health issues myself, like ovarian cysts, hormonal acne, gastrointestinal issues, and musculoskeletal disorders that have yet to be fully understood. I’ve had multiple scans, blood work, testing, physical therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic care. I’ve often been written off or told to take a pill because on the outside I appear pretty healthy. I know what it’s like to be in pain and feel misunderstood, and have to do your own searching and experimenting to find the root cause.
My health is an every day work-in-progress, but I know now so much more than I did 10 years ago. Through simple lifestyle changes my body has had the ability to heal itself. I learned that worry and over analyzing everything is unhealthy, and that special diets or exercise programs really aren’t necessary.
As a Certified Health Coach, I’m making it my priority to give busy moms, like you, simple ideas and tools that you need to make the best choices for you and your family’s overall health and wellness. I make everything very simple, fun, and motivating, so everyone who reads my blog, or leaves my sessions will feel empowered and confident in their family’s health journey!
What is a Metronome and why did I name my business after one?
For those of you who don’t know what a metronome is, it is “a device used by musicians that marks time at a selected rate by giving a regular tick”.
When I chose the name for my business, I thought of a metronome and how nice it would be for life’s pace to go along with a metronome, and have a set tempo or “regular tick”. My life at the time, was not what I envisioned for me or my family. I was working full time, in the healthcare industry, and had been for 17 long years. I was feeling burned out and depressed.
Being around sick people every day, seeing the repercussions of not taking care of oneself, having managers and co-workers that were unhappy and negative, really took a toll on me mentally and physically, which in turn took a toll on my family. I was craving change and more positivity in my life. That’s when, I decided to take a leap of faith, and start a health coaching business, and so I called it Metronome Wellness – Tempo for Life!
The tempo of our lives might be fast at times, or slow, accepting that, and learning to adapt and stay positive through the changes, is my goal for you. There are a lot of things in life out of our control, but our health and the health of our children is something that we can play a big role in shaping now and the future.
