SO YOU’RE A JERSEY GIRL, HUH?

Although Jersey sometimes gets a bad reputation, it’s actually a fabulous place to live.

I currently reside in the one-bedroom condo I purchased (big girl move) 2 years ago in Hoboken.

It’s the mile square city with the absolute best views of the NYC skyline, by far!

WHERE DID YOU GROW UP, GO TO COLLEGE, AND ALL THAT “BASIC” STUFF?

I grew up in the little town of East Hanover (also in the Jerz) before going to college at the University of Delaware.

Yes, I was a sorority girl.  Yes, I’m proud of it.  *POM-POMS UP*

After graduating, I began my career in medical device sales (won’t bore you with that) and have since become a Holistic Wellness Coach.

This is my true passion, getting to work with lovely ladies like yourself ever day!

I’m here to serve as your ra-ra guru to living a life you actually enjoy, in a body you adore…capicse?

Oh yeah, and we can talk about absolutely ANYTHING + EVERYTHING—no censorship needed {that even includes colonics … ;)}

WHAT SPURRED YOU TO START THIS SITE?

I have personally battled loving my body for as long as I can remember.  Continually having a laundry list of things I want to ‘fix’— longer hair, better skin, nicer clothes, thinner legs, … rounder tush.

It seemed like I had to execute on ALL these changes before anything good could come into my life (a relationship, career, and the like).

I do believe in the Law of Attraction which let me to Health + Wellness coaching.

Through coaching, it became apparent that many of us chicas do not adore our bodies.

I have come to find that the digital culture of social media has fueled many ladies to start comparing themselves to total strangers over the internet.

Hello, waist-trainers, tea-toxes, 10 pounds in 10 days weight-loss fads!

Seems insane, but I’m pretty sure if you’re reading this you have probably fallen victim to similar behaviors.

Please forgive yourself for it, you’re not bat shit crazy, I promise!

I wanted to start this blog to dispel the body shaming we inflict on ourselves and create a place revel in our sexiness.

You heard me, hottie!

Oh yeah, and I promise you can still eat pizza ;).

So, it’s time to break up with your inner nasty bitch and join a new SQUAD.

BODY CHEERLEADER?

You can read more in Mission Video but the name came about pretty naturally.

I wanted to start a blog where girls could go to feel gorgeous—whether it be through healthy recipes, beauty tips, fashion tricks and just overall “feel-good” Pinterest-worthy stuff.

My personality is pretty vivacious, and sunny—even on my extra shitty days.  Lord knows we ALL have them.

As a Wellness Coach, many of my clients started to describe me as a “cheerleader”—which is seemly where the brand was born.  Not to mention my nick-name at home is “microphone”—probably because I’m loud AF and never put a lid on it .

The pseudo Webster definition—

Body Cheerleader (n):  A pom-pom enthusiast of self-love, all things wellness + channeling your inner vixen.

Truly, I cannot think of a better compliment, and one I do not take lightly.

The phrase “your biggest cheerleader” gets tossed around a ton, and I’m sure many of us ladies wish we had someone to remind us how stunning we are every day.

Including the days when our skinny jeans just stop fitting, or the ones where we wake up with a giant forehead zit the day of a big interview, or the ones when that cute bro doesn’t swipe right.

No worries, I got you, boo!

I’m happy we have met and cannot wait to add some pep to your step.

HOW SHOULD I NAVIGATE THE BLOG?

Great question!  This entire site exists to make you feel like the stone cold fox that you are—in whatever way you define that.

Explore the recipes, fashion finds, my Chicky MUST-haves, beauty necessities, + favorite wellness tips.  The goal is to get your self-love UP + keep you feelin’ fine.

If you would like to work more closely together, 1-1 services may be a perfect fit.

I hope here that you find exactly what you need celebrate the beauty queen that you are.

HOW DO I COACH DIRECTLY WITH/PARTNER WITH YOU?

There are times when I have a little bit of a waiting list (always a wonderful thing) so make sure to enter your name + e-mail, love.

For brand partnerships, speaking engagements, and press see PARTNER.

I can’t wait to hear from you.

HOW LONG HAVE YOUR CLIENTS BEEN ON YOUR SQUAD?

Since becoming a Wellness Coach, some have been with me for several years!  Have a quick glance at their testimonials and journeys (a few are tear jerking, be prepared to fix your mascara).

Go forth + meet the rest of the body CHEERLEADERS.

LET’S CUT TO THE CHASE HERE, HOW MUCH IS 1-1 COACHING GOING TO COST ME?

You sassy thing!  I like your style …

One thing you’ll learn about me when we start working together is I’m no bullshit.

I’ve been in the sales world, I get it!

But, every client of mine is different, that that’s why I offer a totally free 30-minute call to really tailor my coaching experience around YOU.

Ya feel me?

I do not coach everyone the same.  I mean really, what would be the point?

During the complimentary call, we’ll be able to chat about the biggest challenges you’re facing when it comes to loving your body.  From here, we can customize a personal development and nutrition plan for you to finally start feelin’ fab as ever.

With that being said, stop by the WORK WITH ME page, pass on your contact info., and let’s take it from there.

One call won’t kill ya, cutie ;).

CHICKY, WHAT CAMERA DO YOU USE?

I use a Sony a6000 which is the BEST thing that ever happened to my life!

It’s light, portable, idiot-proof, affordable and INCREDIABLY high quality.

Oh, and it has BUILT IN WI-FI (no brainer, obvi).

You can shop it here.

I also use the E 1.8/35 MM Sony lens; you can grab it here.

LASTLY, WHO’S YOUR BODY CHEERLEADER?

The most important question of them all.

And of course, since day one, my mother, Lorraine.

My mom has dealt with more of my meltdowns than anyone on the planet.  She’s watched me try to change myself over, and over, and over again without ever yielding a different result.

She’s seen me battle the scale, binge-eating, under eating, wishing I could just reach “perfection”—all the while just loving me exactly as I am.

Yet, she has stayed on my team to launch this site (took a whole YEAR to create) to help other gals in need of a cheerleader.

She is also the face behind this blog lens, a helpful recipe curator, a try-any-fitness-class partner, and a MASTER proof-reader.

Forever in my corner, I love you … my little kitty cat.

Okay, enough about me, time to get to know you a little better, beauty! Stay updated, stay fine, and join the squad.
