Who is this Brandi Girl?
Thank you for visiting my site and being a little curious about who I am.
The formal side of me wants to tell you that:
~I am an Amazon Best Selling Author of The Backsliders Guide to Weight Loss, The Backsliders Guide to (self) Organization, and the Backsliders Guide to Goal Setting.
~I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Law and Society from The Pennsylvania State University and am a proud Lifetime Member of the Penn State Alumni Association.
~ Fitness Competitions: 1st Place in first ever competition, 5th Place in Ms. Fitness Europe and 21st in Ms Fitness World (representing England ~ we lived there for three years). And competed in two others placing in the top five.
~Once owned a Photography Business called Earth Play Photography where I took photos of adventure racers in action.
~Spent years coaching gymnastics, once a certified personal trainer, and yoga instructor.
My heart wants to tell you:
~That I have been married to the most wonderful and supportive man for over 20 years and we have two amazing sons that are the foundation of my smile.
~I take great pleasure in writing because it helps me express the best of who I am in a way that touches others and brings out the best in them.
~I love to travel, watch independent films, go on day hikes, float in sensory deprivation tanks, and I am always on the search for the perfect salad.
~I was born in Fort Worth, Texas and have lived in Arizona, all over Texas, North Carolina, England, and now call Boise, ID my home.
~I LOVE ART – in every form. I may not always like or understand it, but I love that we are creative human beings with a gift to take an idea from our hearts and minds and bring it into reality.
