Now, not only an eating disorder survivor but also a plant-empowered thriver, Stephanie is committed to helping others write their new stories of empowerment and freedom through coaching.
Stephanie loves to travel, write, and feel like a badass after kickboxing workouts. She makes her home in Kansas City, and can most often be found at her children’s sporting events.

Helping others has always been Marie’s fuel in life. She obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Psychoeducation at the age of 22 but was struggling to find her place in the systems in place. After traveling for a few years, Marie moved to Germany where she encountered the same problems: she wanted to help, but the traditions and systems in place went against everything she believed in.
She decided to quit everything and take the second-biggest leap of her life by becoming a virtual assistant.
It’s her love for the animals, her vegan values, and her passion for fitness and health that led Marie to join the Sexy Fit Vegan team. Right away, she felt like she was finally contributing with her own skills to something she truly, wholeheartedly believed in. She can now proudly say that she is completely aligned, both privately and professionally, with her core values.
Marie is a list enthusiast, organization freak, and team player. She loves writing, reading, learning, cooking, and traveling. She lives “on the road”, spending most of her time between Germany and Canada with her partner.
Helping people align their lifestyle with their values, create an empowered mindset, and build a relationship with food they never need to cheat on is what lights our souls on fire!
