Hi, I’m Lish! I’m a Special Education Director, certified Health Coach, runner, yogi, skydiver, snowboarder, rock climber living in Denver, CO with my husband, Joe.  My story is the typical one… after spending so much time reading healthy living and food blogs, I had the itch to start my own. Like many others, I also want to use this blog as a way of documenting and remembering all the amazing things going on in my life.

A little background…I grew up in Michigan and fled to a warmer climate as soon as possible. I moved to Southern California for college on a diving scholarship, only to realize the west coast was not for me and I missed season changes like crazy! Four years later I was off to NYC and after three years as a high school teacher I realized I didn’t want to teach, so I decided to follow my passion for nutrition and enrolled at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Since graduation I have started my own practice, but have eventually returned to teaching when we moved to Colorado. After four years of teaching I was promoted to the Special Education Director which I am absolutely loving!

Joe and I met several years ago, but didn’t start dating until 2010 when we reconnected and realized we had an insane amount of random interests in common. Since then we have been having a blast racing, boarding, rock climbing, traveling, and jumping out of planes. After eight years in Manhattan, we decided to pick up and move across the country to Denver, Colorado at the end of 2012  and can’t imagine ever leaving!

I really hope if you stumble across this little blog, you enjoy your stay! I may not update everyday, but I promise to keep things interesting 😉
