When I set out a few years ago as a Certified Lactation Counselor and Certified Family & Prenatal Health Coach, the goal was simple. Work within the non-profit sector, making wellness services accessible to those who need it most, thus closing health disparities in our communities. I quickly learned that navigating the non-profit world was not for the faint of heart and after spending a year doing so, decided I could best help by running a for-profit business and using my profits to fund volunteer work, and pro-bono services.
With love for writing, the move to start a blog in efforts to market my services was seamless. The two years that followed revealed the ultimate ah-ha moment. The blog and the Instagram tribe had gained so much momentum; it seemed painfully obvious that that way to help people - to genuinely close health disparities, was to make as much information available online in the form of free content. Enter Family Health Tips.
As someone who has coped with anxiety for my entire life, I know that there is no one size fits all approach to wellness. It's, for this reason, I take great pride in the team of educated professionals we have contributing to Family Health Tips. Our range of contributors allow our readers the opportunity for a well-rounded, and individualized approach to wellness. And most importantly, the chance to live happier and healthier lives - for free. Lastly, the most important thing that sets Family Health Tips apart from other wellness sites is I truly believe we can live our healthiest lives and still live.
