In 2005, Wendy left a job that she really enjoyed; however, her goal of spending more time with her family was a stronger desire. Wendy wanted to walk her daughter to the school bus and help her make her way to her 1st day of kindergarten. After that goal was accomplished, she found herself starting a business. She has an athletic family, and wanted to help more people begin to use athletics and eating well to reduce stress. While Wendy worked, she pursued a black belt in Martial Arts. This gave her the ability to pursue a new passion. Wendy began My H.E.A.L.T.H. Kick® in 2005. My H.E.A.L.T.H. Kick® stands for Helping Everyone Achieve Life Through Healthy Habits.
