About Me


Inspired by friends along my life journey, I blog to share my passion and love for fitness, health, home, family & life!  I’m passionate about life-long learning and trying new things so I’ll share my love of amazing and mostly clean-eating recipes, a lot of running & fitness adventures & tips, chances I take with new adventures and my life experiences no matter what challenges come my way!

Why Reinventitude?

Because I wholeheartedly believe that everyone can reinvent themselves and chase their dreams.  All it takes is a great attitude and a lot of gratitude to get to the next altitude! (cheesy but true!)

I hope to inspire, motivate and encourage you in your journey toward greatness!

I believe in you!
