I’m Brandy – the playfully, badass Body Love Activist, Coach, Writer, and Yoga Instructor that founded Body Love Tribe.
My current obsessions include turquoise jewelry, binge watching episodes of Seinfeld, and helping you ignite a love affair with your body.
I’m not here to ramble on about how my life is perfect and yours can be too. Life is messy. It’s almost never perfect. I think that’s why I love it so much. What I am here to do is be loud, stand proud, and celebrate incredible women like you. You deserve to love your body. You also deserve to experience joy every single day.
I am here to help you do all of this and more.
Before you get too excited about my sparkle-filled life as a body love activist and wellness entrepreneur, we need to sit down for some real talk. The truth is that prior to launching Body Love Tribe, I struggled to love my body. I spent most of my teens and early twenties battling an eating disorder. Eventually my eating disorder was accompanied by debilitating anxiety. When I thought it couldn’t get any worse, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Woof.
There I was, 20 years old, with an eating disorder, crippling anxiety, and cancer. I felt as if I didn’t belong in my body, as if it no longer wanted me. I used to live in shame, trying to hide my past, but I refuse to do that anymore. This is who I am and where I’ve been. And, I’m okay with that.
It is because of these experiences that I know what it feels like to struggle for years with a profound discontent with your body. Because of this I know what it feels like to never feel good enough. I know what it’s like to live without a vital organ, surviving on a lifetime of hormones. And, sadly, I know what it feels like to wake up every day and experience anxiety so severe that it keeps you from participating in the things that once brought you joy.
It is because of these experiences that I was pushed to grow, learn, innovate, and discover healing strategies that would go on to radically transform my life. As I was staring down my struggles years ago, I realized that I was letting them control my life. I thought about my struggles incessantly and wondered why isn’t anything getting better? I had it all wrong. I fixated on all the negativity hoping to someday stumble upon a life of joy. Never gonna happen.
I soon realized that if I was ever going to experience joy, I had to get clear on exactly how I wanted to feel in my body and in my life. I would have to go out and pursue my own joy every single day. This realization transformed my entire life.
By prioritizing my own joy, that’s how I got from my gloomy past to the joyful life that I live today. Crazy simple. Crazy awesome.
I founded Body Love Tribe because I want to give you access to the tools and support that helped me fall wildly in love with my body, while creating a community of women supporting and empowering one another to love their unique bodies. You deserve to feel confident, joyful, and at peace in your body. I have the tools to help. And, at the very least, I’d love to be your joy guru and your daily dose of laughter and love.
