My name is Annemarie, and I’m from southern California. I created this site to express a set of ideas that advocate a healthy mind, body and business.
My mission is to connect with people like me – athletes, leaders, survivors – who strive to be true to themselves while being respectful to others.
I am not a psychologist, doctor, or a certified life coach. I am simply a girl with a few crazy experiences and who still believes the glass is half full.
I come from an amazing family. I have wonderful friends. I like to travel. And while change can make me uncomfortable, I am open to new opportunities.
– Be responsible
– Be proactive
– Be aware
– Be synergistic
– Be transparent
– Be vocal
– Try to thrive and enjoy life
At age 19, when a stalker raped and tried to kill me, I learned about transformation. As you might guess the experience rocked my world, and for a while it defined my life.
There I created sponsorships and community engagement campaigns for various Fortune 1000 companies.
I also organized a ski trip for 40 kids from Watts, and for the first time heard the term Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). It’s a policy where companies equally value people, the planet and profits. I love the idea.
The best is yet to come
After leaving Disney, I transformed my passion for CSR and community outreach to consult with MLB’s RBI-LA campaign, RedBull, Microsoft, PEMCO, LPS Asset Management, and others.
- Discipline my body to become an Ironman.
- Discipline my mind to race without one negative thought.
With time I realized that “transformation” is the common denominator between CSR, sports, and personal development.
… CSR positively transforms corporate stakeholder relationships;
… Athletes must transform their body and mind to compete;
… Victims must transform their mindset to live without fear, to find peace, and to embrace forgiveness.
Living with purpose
- I’ll implement your tips into my personal and business life.
- l want a peaceful life too, and like you I will try to forgive.
- I’m philanthropic and didn’t realize my business resources could strengthen my efforts.
- Please share 5k training tips.
- Can you help me loose weight?

Together we laugh, cry, and feel empowered. Because of them I found a purpose – to share my story. Just because something bad happened doesn’t mean you must carry it forever. It’s empowering to embrace a healthy lifestyle.
Now when time allows, I give speeches, lead workshops, and post my tools and tips that advocate a healthy mind, body and business.
Always tri. Never stop.
