My name is Carly (Marie is my middle name) and I'm health & wellness enthusiast, dog lover, and recent Public Health grad who is passionate about helping myself and others become balanced beings. I grew up in Atlanta and am now living in New Orleans, where food is an inherent part of culture!
My Education - I have a BS in Public Health and a Master's in Public Health (Global Environmental Health Sciences/Disaster Management) both from Tulane University.
My Belief - There's no one-size-fits-all approach to health. Food, fitness and mindfulness are healing, but what works for some may not work for others, and it's up to you to discover that balance, I'm here to help give you some tools that might help you get there!
I also believe in the power of the little things that make a big difference; Simply being educated on our surroundings (anywhere from the food we eat to our relationships to the environment we live in) empowers us on to make the right choices for our unique physical, emotional, and mental health!
My Passion - I have struggled with anxiety, depression, binge-eating, body image, and an unhealthy relationship with myself (and others!). I'm a work in progress (aren't we all?), but I share my story because I want to help others through their own struggles. I am passionate about providing health education to others and overcoming stigma related to mental health & body image.
I hope to provide inspiration, evidence-based health education, guidance, and motivation for your own goals. It's that simple!
Remember; all that you need is already within you.
