Hello & welcome!
If you’re taking the time to read this, I am incredibly grateful and hope you make yourself at home. Let me introduce myself. I’m Kristin. I’m a single mama, a Lupus Warrior and girlboss!
6 years ago I was finishing school, working an amazing internship, planning a wedding and eager to get started on the path to the American dream; home-ownership, career, 2.5 kids, a large chunk of student-loan debt, etc. I had my whole life planned out and the world was my oyster. Until one day, it all came crashing down.
I got sick. I was eventually diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. And one piece at a time, my life fell apart.
I got married. I got a job. I gave birth to a beautiful, baby boy. I quit my job to stay home with my son and started n online business that quickly became successful. On the surface, things were perfect. But my body was shutting down on the inside. And with that, came a struggle that impacted me physically, emotionally, spiritually and socially. It affected every relationship in my life. I faced a lot of judgment and misconception about my illness. And I began to feel lost and hopeless.
Throughout that difficult time, I developed an immense gratitude for the freedom of entrepreneurship. I realized that while I was fighting for my life, I had the freedom to focus on the things that truly mattered, my son and my health. I was able to continue running a business despite being bedridden most days. I was free from anxiety over calling off of work or losing a job. I was able to afford care that others in my situation could not, care that ultimately saved and transformed my life. Healing my body took a lot of time, effort and patience. I am blessed to been afforded those resources through entrepreneurship.
The healing process also brought me to a place where I was able to truly value and respect my body, and I found myself yearning to help others do the same. I wanted to help women prioritize their health in a world that places endless demands on them. I wanted to help them create the same type of freedom that had allowed me to get well. I wanted to provide hope. And answers. And everything I had been in such desperate need of.
It was only natural that what began as an online health and fitness business evolved into something much larger. I was determined to help healthy women find confidence, sick women find health, and all women find freedom. I wanted to become a voice for all of those women. It became my mission to do all of those things.
And so here we are, gals. We are in this together. We have goals, wishes, hopes and dreams. We have countless struggles, obligations and obstacles that will keep us from the latter, if we allow them. But I believe that as women, we will rise above and conquer. And I’m here to help, in any way that I can.
