Mollie considers herself a high performer in recovery and prioritizes rest, mindfulness, and doing activities that bring her balance.
Mollie has a history of sports, but her passion for health wasn’t sparked until she walked into a CrossFit gym for the first time and witness the true power of functional fitness across all age spans. In the midst of finding her life’s purpose, Mollie was experiencing painful gut symptoms that were impacting her quality of life. After a couple years of these symptoms, severe anxiety and depressed mood set in. More time past, and eventually unintentional weight gain occurred even with a clean diet and doing HIIT workouts five times per week.Mollie saw several conventional doctors throughout these years, with no improvement in her symptoms and was told her “labs were fine”. Mollie’s quality of life declined – she stopped working out, slept 10+ hours per day, and nearly dropped out of college. She rallied to complete her education so she could figure out how to heal herself, and others.Finally, with the discovery of Functional Medicine, Mollie found answers. While she continues on the path of healing, Mollie can finally be an athlete again, laugh with her partner, travel on the weekends, and work towards her professional goals.
