Beth is a 25 year old mother of two beautiful children and just celebrated 7 years of marriage on the Nov. 19th! She started her healthy lifestyle journey on 3/12/12 and started Vi at the end of July of this year. She had a few months prior to Vi to work on eating clean (minimally processed foods, no sugar, whole/real foods, etc…) but getting healthy does take time. She loves teaching others how delicious eating healthy can be! Beth believes Vi provides results whether you eat healthy or not, but think of the results possible when combining the two together!
