The Model Health Show

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela

Learning is a critical part of life, and it’s also been an indispensable theme throughout my career. The more I’ve learned, the more I’ve been able to evolve my perspective, grow as a person, and share with the world. As I celebrate two decades working in the health space, I want to reflect on the most influential lessons that I’ve learned along the way.

On this episode, I’m excited to celebrate 20 years working in health and wellness by sharing 20 powerful, eye-opening, transformative lessons I’ve learned throughout my career. Of course, we will cover the basic principles of wellness like the power of nutrition, movement, and sleep. But we’re also going to dive into topics like the power of relationships and lifelong learning, our synchronicity with the environment, and defining what true health actually is.

My hope is that these lessons resonate with you and align with my mission of helping you become more empowered in your ability to affect change. Thank you for joining me on this journey, and I look forward in learning even more together moving forward. I hope you enjoy this special milestone episode of The Model Health Show!
