A Story Behind The Brand
After experiencing the failures of a fractured healthcare system, I embarked on a journey of self-healing that caused me to examine everything I put in, on and around my body. Shunning my doctor’s advice to have a full hysterectomy at the age of 19, I made a conscious decision to advocate for myself and overall wellbeing to combat uterine fibroids, ovarian cyst, being 60 lbs overweight and a litany of other health-related issues.
After two years of holistic living that included a change in diet, stress management and a habit remix, I was able to reverse all of my previously diagnosed ailments. Upon realizing that I wasn’t the only one struggling to lead a healthy and balanced life, I made it my life’s mission to create generational wellness by educating others on the healing properties of food, herbs, and mindful movement while abolishing such phrases as “it runs in the family.”
I have hosted numerous wellness workshops, spent countless hours sharpening my food, mind-body connection and herbal knowledge.
With a clarity of purpose steeped in service, I am poised to make a significant impact in the wellness community as CEO and Founder of balancED connections. Through hand-made products, informative workshops, personal coaching and community support, this liberating truth-teller is committed to using my solution-focused approach to empower future generations to improve their relationship with their wellness.
I am Texas raised and Mississippi refined. When I’m not cultivating new ways for individuals to reclaim their lives, I enjoy getting my hands dirty, dancing for good food, creating in my herbal lab, spending time with my amazingly brilliant husband, Anthony McLin II, and a “hoomun” to my toy-poodle MyLo.
