Hello world, I am Ann! Some people know me as Annie F while my long time mountain bike buddies know me as Ann-the-Annimal. I've been a lifelong athlete and body movement is life to me. Mountain biking has been my passion sport for over two decades and living in Colorado has given me the opportunity to spend thousands of hours and miles on beautiful mountain and desert trails.
My life has been primarily split between technology and sport. After earning an engineering degree then masters in program management, I spent over 25 years working in high tech offering me the opportunity to travel, learn many industries and technologies and meet countless wonderful people along the way. However, my true passions and interests have always been health, wellness, the outdoors and sport.
I resonate with the following Ralph Waldo Emerson quote, "To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment." Every day I take on not only the challenge to be myself but to simply reveal the self I strive to be. My adult life has been this journey of self-discovery and healing. Whether it's learning my true interests and passions, identifying food sensitivities and allergies or recovering from far too many injuries and surgeries, the common thread has been listening to what my body, mind, and spirit needs.
Over the years I've developed a wicked interest in how food and products affect our health, fallen in love with international flavors, discovered a simple joy in whole unprocessed food, explored this beautiful world, and spent precious time on the road with my favorite person, my husband Wes. I'm in the middle of the next step of this life journey as I bring my experience, education, and passion to others as a Certified Transformational Nutrition Coach. This certification combines a unique blend of nutrition and coaching science, psychology, and spirituality to help guide and educate you on your journey to a healthy and active lifestyle.
As a Coach, it is an honor to help you on your unique journey to health, healing and self discovery. If you want to be active again, are learning a new normal due to illness or injury or simply need to understand what will make your health thrive, reach out and let's work together. Food is fuel and combine that with mindset, you can make a significant difference in your quality of life and health.
Please join me as I open up about my experiences and introduce you to special discoveries in the adventures of health, wellness, relationships, sport and life.
WELCOME and Cheers to an active YOU!
