You guys… I’m kind of geeking out over here. Today’s Q&A Series guest, Lee Hersh of Fit Foodie Finds, was the first blogger — food, fitness, wellness, or otherwise — that I ever found! I immediately connected with Lee’s hilarious sense of humor, interest in all things food, fitness, and health, and her Wisconsin charm (Ryan is from Wisco, after all!).

Q&A SERIES: HOLISTIC HEALTH COACH + SUPER WOMAN, SIMI BOTIC

Hi, there! I’m back with my 2nd post in my new Q&A Series and I’m super, super excited about today’s guest, Simi Botic. Simi and I have a similar background and journey into the health & wellness field. We both used to practice corporate law and have since transitioned into full-time health coaching.

I’m back with another edition of Coffee Talk (my first one was in February — time flies!), so sit back & grab your favorite cup of coffee.
