Hey! It's so great to meet you. I'm Bridget -- a passionate, driven INFJ who wants to help women live healthy, chill, joy-filled lives. I'm a Christian, a wife, a professional marketer, first-time mom, a marathon runner, a blogger (obviously), and an online personal trainer

In the fitness/health realm, I have some credentials to reassure you when you're thinking about whether or not you should take my advice: 

  • NASM Certified Personal Trainer
  • Corrective Exercise Specialist
  • Certified Hatha Yoga Instructor
  • NAFC Certified Nutrition Coach

As far as everything else I talk about goes, you'll just have to take it with a grain of salt. My husband (a seminary grad) does read over my Christian-related posts to make sure I'm not saying anything crazy or heretical. 

I also really love puppies. I just wanted to make sure I put that out there.
