Welcome to Spot On Wellness!
I am so happy that you have decided to take a look around my website.
Okay, so you have clicked on the about me page so I better give you something to read, right?
Okay, so here goes. My name is Amy and I am a 40 years old. WOW! Did I just say that out loud? When did I turn 40? No, really, my age doesn’t bother me. It is just a number right? It isn’t how I FEEL. Heck, I feel better now than I did when I was 25. (That is probably mostly due to going to bed before 4 am
I have been married for 10 years to G. He is a very handsome, patient, funny, smart, loving (okay, yes, I am buttering him up a little. I really want a nice anniversary gift… HA!) But seriously, he is the best husband a wife could ask for. And the thing is… I KNEW it the MOMENT I saw him. Yup, love at first sight.
We have 3 kids. A son (we call him Squirrel) and a daughter (we call her Bugga) are the loves of our lives. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family.
My son is a bright, funny, dramatic, (sometime) challenging, super cuddler with a wonderful imagination. He is a kid that will make you crazy with wonder one minute and make you laugh the next. He LOVES History. He will watch, listen to or read ANYTHING about the Civil War. He wants to be a soldier and then an archeologist. Maybe he will be a History teacher? It is fun to predict, right?
My daughter is super smart, a fantastic reader, a fast runner, and super cuddler, too. She loves to play “waitress” and she especially loves to make people laugh and feel special. She has a raspy little voice and she loves to sing and perform. She also LOVES animals. She wants to be a Marine Biologist and train dolphins. We definitely predict that she will do some sort of career involving animals.
In-between our son and daughter, I gave birth to another son. Our little Angel in Heaven, Chickpea, was born premature at 7 ½ months gestation. It was undoubtedly the saddest and most awful day of my life. But, it was also the most spiritual day of my life, too. In that moment of delivery, the only people I saw in the room were my husband and Jesus, who was holding our son. Accepting him into his arms. It was SO powerful. A moment and vision I will NEVER forget. We miss Chickpea everyday but know that we will see him in Heaven again someday.
Okay, so, besides being a wife and mother, what exactly do I do? Well, I am bored certified and licensed by the state of NY as a Radiation Therapist (RTT). A Radiation Therapist is someone who treats cancer patients with Radiation. Being an RTT has given me so many different opportunities. I have worked in many hospitals/clinics all over the Northeast both full time and as a temp staffer (Locum). After that, I started my own temp (Locum) agency, doing that for 4 years. Then, I worked for a major Oncology company traveling all over the US, training other Therapists how to use their new equipment. And, I was lucky enough to continue working for this company from home for over 5 years after I had my kids. I promised (myself and) my kids that I would always be here when they need me and do my darndest to work from home. And, I have been truly blessed to be able to do that.
Now, after being laid off in June from an Oncology Sales Manager position that I was in for almost 2 years, I am finally “doing what I love and love what I am doing.”
See, my true lifelong passion has always been fitness and wellness. Yes, my career is in cancer care, but I believe that by Investing in Yourself and living a balanced life – mentally, spiritually, and physically – you will truly LIVE your BEST life and you can prevent many life changing illnesses.
I remember being a teenager and getting up in the morning, throwing in a Jane Fonda workout video and getting my workout in before school… legwarmers and all.
It was always a dream of mine to own a fitness center, too. So, being the entrepreneur that I am, I looked at what was being offered locally, thought about what might be a good fit for a small town like the one I live in, and so I started a Cardio-boxing fitness center. Yup… Cardio-boxing.
Now, if you haven’t ever taken a cardio-boxing class, well, you are missing out. It is SUCH a great, total body workout! You use muscles that you didn’t even know you had. And, you burn LOTS of calories per class. AND, we had bags to hit. Hitting something = less stress!!
It was an instant hit (no pun intended). All of my classes filled up quickly and people really enjoyed the workout. The problem ended up being that because people can usually only take a class before or after work, the hours for a mom of two small kids was rough. My kids would just get home from school at 4, I would help with homework and play for a few minutes and then I would have to leave to start teaching classes from 5-8. I would get home in time to help get them into bed. It began to put a lot of stress on my family… stress that was NOT helped by hitting a bag.
So, in April 2012 I decided to close the boxing center and take my fitness passion online at spotonwellness.com. Now, I can truly say I have my cake and I eat it, too! (A gluten free, stevia sweetened, healthy carrot cake that is )
