Katie_Ly_Fit_ChickMy driving purpose is to serve others in a way that is both positive and enriching. Having spent over 15 years in a corporate customer focused career, I’ve always felt a strong connection to working closely with individuals. After taking a leave from corporate life, I came to realize that I wanted to devote myself to helping others in a different way; one that promotes good health, while also helping people feel energized and positive about themselves.
