Personal Memoir  
Written By Kristin Parthemos

For the last 16 years, I have been working on a personal memoir. Through the ebbs and flows of my health, a notebook and a pen recorded emotions, events, devastation, heartbreak, joy, and so much more. I kept it in a drawer, hidden in darkness as I fought through chronic illness and tried to maintain the life I had built. During my darkest times, that notebook was my saving grace. It provided a space just for me - one where I could write my pain and leave it on the page. As time went on, it became more difficult to stay afloat and my body crumbled. Illness overtook me and I reached for my life raft - the notebook. Determined to fight back against chronic illness, I left it all out on the pages. It became a tool for healing and a journey to share with others. If you'd like to learn more about my expedition, my memoir can be found at the link to the right.

Why Health & Harmony?

The decision to health coach

Have you ever had an event happen in your life, and you thought, why me? Why is this happening, and why now? Is the universe trying to tell me something? Is it time for a major change in my life? Has this ever left you to ponder whether you're meant to do something more? What is my purpose in life? Am I living in alignment with my values? 

This is the tug of the universe, and it's what led me to health coaching.  

I felt this tug as my body was failing me, and my health deteriorated. At first, I did wonder, why me? But, as I took a look around at my life it was abundantly clear why it was happening. It was time for a major life change. It was time to let go of my career and start a new journey - one where I lived true to my purpose and my passion - helping others navigate the world of health.

I'm passionate about living in alignment with my core values which have always been kindness, positivity, authenticity, determination, empathy, knowledge, creativity, nature and harmony. My passion and commitment for helping others has always been a quality that set me apart from others. This passion propelled me into a new career as a health coach. I firmly believe I'm meant to use my knowledge, experiences, and capacity for empathy to guide others toward living their best life yet.
