Hi! I'm Annabel
My story starts at George Mason University where I graduated with a degree in communications and advertising. After working in that field for a short time, I realized it wasn’t the perfect fit for me. So, I sought a career that gave me more purpose: teaching.
As a teacher, I discovered a curiosity about how a child's brain developed. That curiosity evolved into an interest in the connection between our bodies and minds, and ultimately led me to my passion: overall health and wellness - for both the body and mind.
Around that time, members of my family were diagnosed with cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Although they were treated with the best possible medical care, I had heard of alternative therapies that could supplement traditional care during treatment and recovery.
So, I went on a quest to learn as much as I could about exercises and holistic healing methods designed to help invigorate and maintain the health and wellness of my family and friends, particularly those suffering from difficult medical issues.
What did I find?
My experiences guided me to Pilates; an activity that not only impacts my physical health, but also provides me a quiet time to reflect and center myself. I became a Pilates instructor so that I can share the benefits of this practice with my clients.
I also discovered the therapeutic properties of essential oils, energy healing and overall holistic wellness.Find me on my new start-up, Unplug & Hug to learn more about the benefits of disconnecting from the digital world.
