What attracted you to the field of health and wellness?
Passion + Purpose + People + Profits
Transformation + Inspiration
I have always been in love with health + wellness. I’ve done triathlons, completed two century rides in Tahoe.
However, the field itself ended up aiding my entire life transformation completely starting in 2011.
I struggled with 20-40 lbs of excess weight for over the last 10 years, 150%+ of excess spending of a six figure salary while generating industries and companies of 7-8 figures of wealth.
The transformation of it all was triggered by a deepening relationship with God, amazing love of a redeeming blessing, a recommitment to purity to find and create her true self, the death of a loved one, and the love of an incredible team Herbaheroes with global nutritional brand Herbalife and a competition team based on family, Team Edge. I then became certified as a Nutritionist with NASM in Sports + Fitness to increase the service I could provide.
From 2011-2016, I succeeded in losing and keeping off over 25+ lbs, reducing spending to <40% of income, and generating 100%+ growth of income.
The vision revealed itself step by step to Katrina, and the concept of a lifestyle brand resonated deeply. I immersed herself into the creation of a one stop shop combining various global brands, methods, and complementary components to create a FIT Life Creation experience tying in fundraising and a creation of non-profits.
While the need for a lifestyle and one stop shop for transformation in health, wealth, and business combined with purposing profits and giving back was clear, creating the revolutionary concept was a huge task.
Thankfully, my prior backgrounds with strategy and finance, impacting numerous companies with the value creation method to results of 7-8 figures, and creating a non-profit in college, I knew she could find a way. That all led to the creation of FIT Life Creation, a One Stop Lifestyle Transformation Brand
for Health I Wealth I Business with Programs, Academies, Retreats, Ambassadorships & Fundraising Limitlessly Giving Back Full Bio.

How did you get your current job in health and wellness?
Created it + envisioned all the experience + gifts, talents + abilities I’ve been blessed with to help people transform their health, wealth, and business within a one stop lifestyle experience.
I struggled for 10+ years + I know many do. Every single person we may help avoids the struggle + frustration is so profound!
What skills were you born with and what skills have you learned along the way?
Born with naturally partnering with people from a young age. Girl Scouts, starting nonprofits in college, always loved business (sold >250 boxes door to door of girl scout cookies to get a charm!).
Skills I learned along the way – nutrition, accounting (CPA), business formally (MBA) + working with >10 industries, content development + training (various roles).
Freedom in the sense of being an entrepreneur. We are not taught health, wealth, or business in schools. Our parents do the best they can. I was determined to live a free life on all fronts.
What advice do you have for others wanting to be just as successful and fulfilled as you?
Create what YOU love. You only get one life to live. Don’t waste it + don’t allow someone else to tell you what “success” is. Define it + create it for yourself. Pursue your passion + purpose. Fight for yourself, fight for your best life beyond what you ever imagined.
If you could be paid for your job with something other than a paycheck, what would it be?
Transforming Lives + Impact. Seeing the ahas people get. The results. The impact of transforming a life from the inside out.
