I am now a certified Wim Hof trainer and have completed the mindfulness teacher training at the Center for Mindfulness. I am also a certified nutrition advisor and have completed the Personal Trainers academy at Milo. With Live Mindfully and my personal brand, I offer my expertise and inspiration in many different forms to guide others in becoming the best version of
