Hello. I am Sarah. Welcome to Health Wise Home! I am a wife, mother of three, and the creator of Health Wise Home. I am passionate about food, health and wellness, and living an active lifestyle. This site will allow me to share my journey of creating a Health Wise Home for our family and hopefully help educate and empower others to do the same, as well.
I developed a love of nutrition and healthy living at a young age. When I was 11 years old I was overweight and insecure. One day, when I was over a friend’s house, I saw a book about health and nutrition and decided to pick it up and start reading. What a great moment! I really believe that was when my love affair with health and wellness began. For the first time in my life, I started to realize how much control I had over my own health and well-being. It was empowering! With the support of my parents, I began to eat healthy, whole foods and exercise on a regular basis. I ended up losing the excess weight and gaining back my self-confidence!
After graduating high school, I went to college to study Dietetics for 2 1/2 years and then pursued a degree in Health, Fitness, and Recreation Resources with a concentration in Health Promotion. Over the years I have worked in numerous health-related positions. The most challenging and rewarding position to date, however, has been the one that I am currently filling: full-time Health Wise MOM. This “position” put me in control of my family’s health, nutrition, and everyday living. Although practicing a healthy lifestyle has been a long-time passion of mine, getting a husband and three young children on board can be challenging at times. It is not always easy, it is almost never perfect, and it consistently takes dedication, patience, and a lot of trial and error. So why do I bother? Because I truly believe that “The greatest wealth is Health”. I work hard to provide my family with the necessary knowledge, tools, and experiences needed for a healthy “wealthy” future and hope that I can inspire others to do the same. I hope that you will follow along!
