Hello SOTGC community,
I’d like to introduce you to a wonderful new addition to the SOTGC contributor family. The lovely Sandra Shum writing for beauty, healthy advice, and conscious living. Sandra is a certified health and lifestyle coach. She founded Synchronicity in the beginning of 2013 with the vision of creating a health and wellness destination dedicated to the cultivation of joy through self-care.
Sandra has had her share of health challenges. She was born with chronic tonsil inflammation and was diagnosed with thyroid and adrenal imbalances soon after her first pregnancy. Given her health condition, she felt inspired to take charge of her own health. She is constantly reading and doing research to customize her food choices and lifestyle to keep balanced with the focus of being present in every moment with optimal energy and joy. In the past 10 years since she started her journey into holistic wellness, she has gone to India twice for detox and rejuvenation.
Since completing her training as a health and lifestyle coach, she has continued with her studies in the graduate counseling program at the world-renowned Institute of Integrative Nutrition.
She earned her BA in economics from UCLA and built a career in financial planning and analysis in Silicon Valley. She has two beautiful children, which have been her greatest teachers. During her free time, she enjoys hiking, catching up on health and wellness readings, and experimenting with different skin care and body care formulations.
