Hi! I’m Penelope,
A multi-passionate entrepreneur dedicated to helping people reach their full potential so they can live a healthier and happier life. Through my Health Coaching Programs I guide and support my clients to achieve their unique goals, from losing weight, quit smoking, have more energy and sleep better to live a more fulfilling and happier life.
I firmly believe that everything in our life contributes to our sense of well-being and satisfaction. Eating healthy nourishes our body in the same way that working in a career that we are passionate about, having healthy and loving relationships, exercising regularly and spending time each day to connect with ourselves nourish our mind and soul.
I call “Primary Food” everything that nourishes us on a deeper level – mind and soul – and “Secondary Food” everything that nourishes our body, this is, the food we eat. Through my Heath Coaching Programs I focus on both types of food – Primary and Secondary – guiding and supporting my clients to find that balance that comes from nourishing mind, body and soul. It is from this state of balance that my clients can achieve their unique goals and live a healthier and more fulfilling life.
For over ten years I worked for different advertising agencies around the world, in Mexico, Madrid, Sydney and Dubai. During this time I used to work long hours, feeding myself with pseudo-healthy fast-food and eating in front of my computer while reading emails. I slept only a few hours a day and I lived constantly under stress. This, until my body couldn’t take it anymore and fell sick. This forced me to stop and take some time-off from work that lasted almost a year. During this time I decided to focus only on myself in order to fully recover. Step by step I learned how my physical health was closely related to my mental and emotional health; how everything -absolutely everything- had an impact on my sense of well-being and happiness so it was not only important to start feeding myself in a healthier way but it was also imperative to start paying attention to other areas of my life that were intimately related, like the relationship I had with myself and with the people around me, my career, my physical activity and my connection to something “bigger than myself”, called it God, Universe, Spirit.
Eventually, that time working on myself on a deeper level helped me to fully recover and today I feel physically, mentally and emotionally better than ever. That time also helped me to discover my true purpose and passion in life, so after more than ten years in the advertising industry I took the leap and switched career. Today I’m a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach (CIHC) by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York, I also obtained the International Certification as a Health Coach and I’m a member of the International Association of Health Coaches (IAHC). Since then, I’ve been working with many other women in similar journeys, supporting and guiding them to find a balance in their life so they can achieve their goals and live a healthier and more fulfilling life.
