Why Team Valentine Project?
Team Valentine Project is one platform where regardless of where the Army sends us, I can fulfill my purpose to help others find simple ways to live a vibrant, healthy & high-performance life!
But here’s a little more about how I got here...
I sprinted out of the gates of undergrad, building my dream company prior to graduation. I’m not going to lie, providing sports massage therapy and exercise prescription for NFL athletes and healthcare providers while finishing my degree in sports science was incredible!
Then, in 2009 I became a military spouse. While I was able to briefly live between two states during my husband’s deployments, in 2011 I left my career with the NFL behind.
Since then, our family has relocated 9 times. I want my gravestone to read “You can’t say she didn’t try” because it has taken relentless dedication to continuing education and reengineering my career. However, I’m grateful to have worked across the wellness field all throughout the U.S.! I’ve provided health coaching, exercise testing, and sports-specific programming. I’ve earned a masters in Public Health Practice, designed wellness initiatives and technology, and published twice as a research fellow.
While in my research fellowship I started losing sleep because I was arming myself with knowledge of how to solve health & fitness challenges, yet so many individuals were out there searching for answers. I’ve felt that pain! “Chronically" ill, 50 pounds heavier, a crummy athlete, crippling anxiety, “infertile”, and most of all confused about what to do about it! Team Valentine Project thus became my platform to empower others with scientifically sound and realistic tips, so they can maximize health and fitness (and break free from health misinformation, quick fixes and trends!)
Team Valentine Project has expanded to share how I am optimizing performance as a competitive runner while reversing new diagnoses. Having experienced my own health breakdowns, I've had to learn how to make them breakthroughs! As a result, I published a best-selling book with 5 simple steps to help others maximize mindset and confidently break through challenges. I was also selected as a Top 10 Performance Coach & named the 2020 Outstanding Leader in Health Education.
I now offer courses and 1:1 coaching so you can maximize your ability to achieve your goals with simplicity, energy & ease!
If you’re ready, Let’s Go! I'm happy to be your go-to expert to expedite your success!
