Who is Mama Frat?
I am Mama Frat, a motivational speaker, resilience/ happiness expert, and double certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach.
While that’s what I do now… this wasn’t always the case. I used to be a high performing, results oriented, type A corporate executive. After an onslaught of unaddressed stressors, unmet needs and pushing myself too hard for too long, I was given (yet another) diagnosis/label for my failing health. This one included the words “wheelchair” and “medicine for life”. It was all a very a depressing. I went from daily workouts and weekend triathlons to immobility. Getting up to get ready for work was near impossible and dealing with the corporate requirements of my level while in all that pain was so ‘life depleting’ and (pardon me…) sucked the soul right out of me!
A change was inevitable. Combining the best knowledge, mindset, alternative therapies, supplements, conventional medicine, and lifestyle changes, I set off to defy the odds and get my life back. I did, and now I’m on a mission to help others do the same.
Physically, I have been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease, EDS (Ehlers-Danlos syndrome), alkalizing spondylitis, arthritis and MCTD (Mixed Connective Tissue Disease). There are a few others, but you get the gist and I’d prefer to deny them all anyway lol. I’ve also experienced a great deal of emotional pain, like many of you, I have known trauma and loss intimately. What I have come to know from these beautiful battle wounds is that I am stronger than I knew, there is always something to be grateful for and love starts with me.
It is possible to peer into the face of failure, difficulty, and pain and somehow emerge more resilient & fundamentally changed for the better, with an ability to affect the world in previously unimaginable ways.
Sharing the picture with me is my amazing and supportive husband, ‘Frat’. He is a 13x Ironman finisher, an American Ninja Warrior and the man who holds my heart.
I hope you will follow me and find inspiration and nourishment in my work. I do keynote speaking events, hold workshops and even offer coaching sessions.
