TGIF my loves! This week has been fabulous indeed, as I’ve been training for two fun races (exciting announcement coming soon!), adding final touches for tomorrow’s Soul Sisters Retreat to Spectacle Island (which just sold out this a.m.!) and lots and lots of writing and personal soul-searching.
I couldn’t be more thrilled to bring you this week’s spotlight on Healthy Chicks in the Community — one of my best friends and Soul Sister Kelley. I first met Kel 4 years ago when we were working at a spa to make ends meet while completing our Health Coach Training at Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
We became close quickly, bonding over our love for good food, spirituality, and empowering others to feel healthy in their own skin. 4 years later, and Kel was a bridesmaid at my wedding last fall, and we’ve recently teamed up to launch Soul Sisters: a monthly retreat for women looking to re-ignite their passion and re-connect with their soul’s truth! I love Kel’s calming presence, delish home-made goodies she makes, and that she’s just a straight up genuine, no BS gal. I’ll let you see for yourself…you’re going to love her too!
