After tons of behind-the-scenes work, Redefining Health & Wellness has been officially rebranded to Conjuring Up Courage. Welcome to the next evolution of the show! I hope you'll stick around to see what's in store, starting with today's solo episode.

If you're curious about why I rebranded the podcast and how Conjuring Up Courage came into being, I delve into all the details in the first part of this episode. From there, I move into answering a variety of listener questions that y'all submitted.

You'll get to hear me talk about:

  • The ups and downs of being a pet parent to my fluff monsters, Alamo and Peppermint;
  • Details about my two major career shifts;
  • Whether or not intentional weight loss and intuitive eating are compatible;
  • How to figure out if a person, company, or platform can be trusted;
  • Addressing impostor syndrome when you're first starting out as a fitness coach; and
  • The decision to come out or not.


While I couldn't answer every question that was submitted, I appreciate everyone who took the time to write one.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a part of the podcast's journey and supporting me in these changes to the show. The podcast would be nothing without y'all, and your love for the show keeps me going even when it's a grind.

Here's to Conjuring Up Courage, long may she reign!
