Hey y’all! I’m Lee and I’m so pumped to be a Lola Getts Ambassador. I live in the Chicagoland area and I am a plus-size health and wellness coach. I love helping women realize that they can find their health and fitness at any size.I’m lucky to be married to my husband, my high school sweetheart. I’m a mom to a very active 3.5 year old little guy. He keeps me busy and running around after him. Thankfully I’ve got my favorite Lola Getts to keep up with it all.
All while being a mom, wife, and entrepreneur, I am fighting breast cancer for the second time in two years. In May 2017, I was diagnosed with Stage II triple negative breast cancer. It came back in September 2018 as Stage IV. I use my story to show that you can overcome anything with the right mindset and the courage to do hard things everyday.
I started my journey right after grad school in 2010. I was felt awful about myself and how I felt in my clothes. I started working out by myself at the gym and cooking any healthy recipe I could find. In 2013, I became a coach through Beachbody and found a way to workout from home easily and follow a nutrition guide that was best for me and my life. I also found an amazing community of like minded people who wanted to get healthy and not just skinny.
My son and husband are what motivate me. I need to stay healthy and active so that my body has the best chance of kicking cancer’s butt. I want to be here for as long as I can.
