Carley once worked in the intense corporate fashion world of New York City, spending her workdays people pleasing, and her nights and weekends shopping and drinking to fill the void she felt within. Almost daily, she struggled with low self-worth, poor relationships, and constant anxiety. Worn down and tired, she finally decided it was time to make a change and she began setting aside an hour a day just for herself.

Over the next two and a half years, she went through a process of personal transformation. She realized her issues arose from being afraid to say No —whether out of reluctance to hurt others’ feelings or due to her own crippling anxiety and guilt.

In late 2015, she quit her corporate job, and enrolled at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City to become a IIN Health Coach. Today, she is a Self Care Coach and Author of the book Boundaries with Soul, living just outside of Seattle, Washington.
