Hello I am Irazema, blogger, coach, and consultant. I write about the skills and tools needed to have a good relationship with health and wellness – no matter where on the journey someone is on at irazemagarcia.com.
My personal philosophy involves looking at health and wellness as a progressive journey, often sprinkled with challenges and obstacles. Since life is filled with imperfections, why wouldn’t our health journeys be as well? I believe making changes -- no matter how big or small -- require time, strength, and energy (not to mention compassion). Sometimes progress occurs in leaps and bounds, other times it appears to happen in a matter of a centimeters, but every change is worth it. Life is not about striving for perfection, but rather building and shaping progress daily.
A native of Southern California, I call the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area home. I have a Master's Degree in Health Education with a specialization in Holistic Nutrition. I love to explore everything the Bay Area has to offer- fantastic hiking trails, bountiful farmers’ markets, and superb restaurants. When I’m not exploring the dirt paths and paved roads, I can be found in the confines of my kitchen nourishing my body, my soul, and my spirit with delectable homemade goodies. I’m a coach, educator, writer, and confidante to those seeking a realistic approach to wellness.
