Life & Career Milestones

My path in life has been direct

  • 1.

    Founded two businesses: Brush Beauty, a boutique beauty company, and FitJourney, an online community/app that helps people get in shape.

  • 2.

    FitJourney is targeted towards overweight and obese people, and it helps them get healthy within a supportive space.

  • 3.

    Says that although she's not qualified as a personal trainer, she's been on teams her whole life, feels passionate about helping people get fit.

  • 4.

    When she realized she wanted to turn her hobby of doing makeup into her living, she took a three-month-long immersive class to hone her skills.

  • 5.

    When she was 24, her mom passed away; that changed her perspective on life, "big" things suddenly seemed small.

  • 6.

    What became most important were the things that made her feel good, and the things that allowed her to help others.

  • 7.

    Gained 80 pounds when her mother got sick, then slowly got back into fitness through spinning and lifting; uses that experience to relate to FitJourney users.

  • 8.

    Chalks up the success of FitJourney to the fact that she's "absurdly open" about her own experiences, never hides her weight or her struggles.
