My name is April and I am the creator of Happy Healin’ Vegan. My mission is to save as many animals as possible. I am doing this through holistic health coaching where I encourage a plant based diet as a way to heal from chronic illness, inflammation or to increase longevity. We are living in a time where animal agriculture is greatly affecting climate change, deforestation, ocean dead zones, the decline of health and so much more. My hope is to have a positive impact on all of these things.
I have been vegan on and off for my entire life. I always knew that I had an immense love for animals but would go back to eating meat because I, as an athlete, was worried about the lack of protein in a vegan diet (I now know that you can absolutely THRIVE on a plant based diet, and that plants also contain protein).
In 2015 and 2016, I had two events happen that would change my life: getting diagnosed with Lyme Disease and saying goodbye to my best friend (my dog, Jake). Through my Lyme disease treatment, I learned that a plant based diet decreased inflammation, increased my energy and almost eliminated all of my symptoms. Through watching Jake’s health decline during his last few days on this planet, I knew that I could never contribute to the suffering of another animal in any way.
I truly know that educating people, supporting vegan causes, raising awareness, helping YOU live a healthier lifestyle and taking action is what I am supposed to be doing with my life. I am so excited to show you that, whatever your reason is for choosing this lifestyle, you can increase your vitality, heal from an illness, lose weight/inflammation, become more happy, sleep better, and be fit……..all while choosing compassion!
I cannot wait to work with you!!
