Angie was born and raised in Colombia. She is an environmental engineer and has post graduate studies in occupational health, safety and environment. She moved to Canada in 2010 and has worked with engineering professional services firms and transportation companies in both countries. Looking for complementary methods to heal her physical body, she realized that true wellness involves a mental, physical, emotional and spiritual balance, and started experimenting with practices such as tai chi, mindfulness, grounding, yoga, inner child healing, among others. This quest kindled her desire to support others in their own health journey, and led her to complete the Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT™), a Healthy Eating and Lifestyle Certification, and to enroll into the Health Coach Training Program offered by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN).
Angélica is currently hosting Unidas Sanamos, an online women’s circle in which Spanish-speaking women who live in different countries forge new connections, support each other, and share their knowledge or experience on health and well-being topics. Angie loves traveling, spending time in nature, reading, exploring food from different cultures, and chasing aurora borealis.
