Tell me a little bit about you. 

I am passionate about helping women be who God created them to be. I live in Raleigh, NC with my husband Jorge and dog Luna. When I’m not teaching, coaching or podcasting I love a good Netflix binge or a conspiracy theory podcast.

Tell me about your business. 

I’m a podcaster and a body image coach.  I specialize in working with women who feel trapped by dieting and their scale, and I help them improve their relationship with their bodies so they can live their life to the full…like right now, today. I offer weekly podcast episodes that give practical tips on how to stop “weighting” and start showing up exactly as you are. In conjunction with the podcast, I also offer group as well as individual coaching. 

What struggles have you faced in your business?

 Imposter syndrome is real. Do I have to fight back those thoughts every day of who are you to be doing this work? And I have to tell myself who are you NOT to be doing this work? There are so many women who need this message and I’m not going to let a little voice of fear inside my head win. Okay, it doesn’t feel so little but I have to fight it every dang day. 

How have you overcome those struggles?

Community, fear breeds in isolation. Joining a local female co-working space has been a game changer. Melissa and I also started a mastermind group of local business ladies. There is so much power in knowing you are not alone. It’s also so encouraging to talk to other women who get your vision. They can also see things in you that you can’t always see. 

Who were your mentors growing up? 

Um does Jessica Simpson count? I’m kidding but I was obsessed with her. I don’t think I really had any strong female examples for me to look up to. That’s part of what drives me. I want to be the person I needed when I was younger.  

If you were to give advice to a woman going into the field you are in what would it be?

WE NEED YOU. There is not too much competition, your gift, your work is needed. Hurry up, get over yourself and let’s get to work! We have a lot to do.

Have you found that being a woman in your field is harder or easier? Tell me about the advantages and disadvantages of being a woman. 

My market and my field IS women but women can be intimidating as heck. We can be each other’s biggest cheerleaders or biggest critics. One of my ongoing fears is walking into a room full of women. I have to constantly remind myself that we see each other through the lens of our own hurt and pain. So what I’m projecting onto other women is my hurt and vice versa. When I am aware of that it helps me to bring down those guards I put up and allows other women to do the same.

Have you ever have to overcome a hostile work environment?

 Yes, I was actually a very toxic workplace last year and I’m still healing from the things that happened there. I think while I was in it, I kept thinking this isn’t right but it was a faith-based organization so I kept assuming they had the best intentions. I have learned so much from that experience especially about calling out toxicity when I see it, whether or not they do claim to be Christians. 

What made you decide on your chosen field?

 Um honestly, I was out of other options. I knew I didn’t want to go back to teaching. I left the classroom in 2016. I also wasn’t getting any job offers or interviews so I was like I guess I’m going to do this business. It’s my Reba moment, “Here’s your one chance, Fancy, don’t let me down.”

Anything else you would care to share.

Don’t wait until you are a certain size to start your business, follow your dreams or live your life. If you are fed up with the all the crazy diet advice and ware ready to start living your life free of the scale, I would love to help you walk in freedom. I’ve designed my coaching program to equip you with the tools you need to repair your relationship with your body and start living your life now!

  1. Yes I agree. I could not imagine running the mastermind with anyone else.
