A typical day in my life includes…

oh man, that can vary…but it always includes my morning coffee! A typical day in my life generally includes working with a handful of clients, getting a workout in at the gym or going for a hike/trail run…possibly going to class or a clinical rotation…each day looks a little bit different depending on work and school. The flexibility of running my own business was a huge perk when I decided to go back to school to pursue my goal of becoming a nurse. I love to travel and explore so I am enjoying this season of life and being a student again.

I was born…

in La Crosse, WI…Go Packers!

My favorite thing about Arizona…

for most of the year you can’t beat the weather. If you love the outdoors, there isn’t a shortage of adventures, hiking, camping, biking, etc. to be found. The food scene is also quite great too!

I’m listening to…

usually listening to a podcast if I’m driving or something super upbeat if I am working out! Rachel Hollis/Rise Together, Lori Harder’s Earn Your Happy, The Brendan Show, Joe Rogan, sermons, etc. are some of my favorite podcasts…and always on 1.5x haha

My family…

is awesome! We are all pretty spread out these days. I am the oldest of three and despite all living in different states we are very intentional about planning trips and spending time together. HUGE thanks and SUPER GRATEFUL to my parents for setting such a great example for us and making family a priority!

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

hmm…honestly it would probably be all of my family and sister/brother in laws at one big table.

One thing I cannot live without…

I could probably live without it but I really enjoy my coffee, a lot.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

my mom actually reminded me not too long ago that one year I asked for crutches for Christmas lol; I have always had an interest in nursing and caring for others!

I’m inspired by…

others! Seeing friends, family, clients and others work hard and go after their goals is inspiring and motivating to me. And being outside in nature.

The one person who motivates me is…

my dad. He is one of the hardest working people I know.

The perfect day would be…

a slow morning, making breakfast, going on a little adventure and exploring with someone I love. I couldn’t tell you where I picture this “perfect day” but it would be more about who I was with than the location. I love a good plan, but have been learning to embrace just going with the flow 😊

My first job was…

bagging groceries at Festival Foods (a local grocery store in Onalaska, WI).

My favorite escape…

the easiest escape is finding a good hiking trail!

My life…

has been full of A LOT of changes the last couple years, I am very excited to see what I will be doing in a year from now and in five years from now.

I’m currently working on…

finishing my BSN.

Always…

always choose love, give grace…lots of grace!

Never…

stop learning and growing.

Favorite Quote…

“Be the Light!”

Biggest Dream…

keep striving towards my goals, growing into the person I was created to be, and someday having a family of my own to share adventures with and this awesome thing called life!

More about Elsa…

I hail from the lovely state of Wisconsin.  I was blessed to grow up in a very health-conscious, active, and loving family. I spent my college years in sunny Florida where I earned a B.S. in Exercise Science and Allied Health. I moved to Arizona to pursue a career in health and wellness.  I enjoyed working for a large corporate fitness company for nearly five years before deciding to pursue another goal.  I went back to school to earn an additional B.S. in Nursing and become a RN. I own and manage Enlighten Life. It is my platform to educate others on how to live a healthier lifestyle. The majority of my clients right now are fitness based, but I provide services such as holistic wellness coaching, nutrition, lifestyle, etc. I LOVE to encourage others!
