“In life you either need inspiration or desperation.” – Tony Robbins
Marthe Teixeria’s journey to becoming a health coach began early, and it had a little bit of both inspiration and desperation along the way…
After graduating Colby-Sawyer College, Marthe packed her bags (and all her shoes) and moved to New York to pursue a career in entertainment. When she finally worked her way to landing her dream job of working on a movie set, Marthe found that her “dream job” was not as fulfilling as she had hoped. As she became extremely unhappy with the position she was in, Marthe decided to follow her heart and took a leap of faith in a new direction. From that point forward Marthe would dedicate herself to her long time dream of helping struggling teens and young adults.
Part of Marthe’s knowledge and passion comes from her own personal experiences when she was a teen. Throughout high school, Marthe struggled with an eating disorder and at her lowest dropped down to a fragile 82 pounds. Marthe was having daily brown outs, losing hair in clumps and attending weekly trips to the doctor’s office to be weighed. One day Marthe realized she wasn’t having the high school experience that she wanted. It was then that she had her first “A-HA” moment: Life is not all about what’s on the surface. This realization almost came at the cost of her life, but it was an important lesson learned and one that she wants to share with others.
