Jen Boudreau –
After losing almost 200 pounds on her own through diet and exercise (and maintaining that weight loss for over five years so far!), Jen decided that sitting in a cubicle doing really exciting systems analyst stuff was just NOT what she was meant to do with the rest of her life!
Over the next few years, there was lots of studying; with certificiations in everything from Sports Nutrition to Barbell Conditioning to Spin being obtained . She started working in gyms, then started doing personal training, then nutrition coaching, and now is the proud owner of Moxie Strength and Nutrition.
Going on almost three years of following a clean, whole foods approach to eating centered around no grains, dairies, legumes, or other crap, she loves introducing her clients to the amazing world of feeling good and being happy. She knows a lot about nutrition, self-motivation, overcoming personal obstacles, food, cooking and training and is ready to share it all with you.
She is the author of her own blog http://andsomefruit.blogspot.com/, when there’s time between raising three kids and running her own business, Moxie Strength and Nutrition, where she is owner, trainer, and nutrition coach; and working on obtaining a Master’s Degree in Health and Nutrition.

A CrossFitter for the last 4 years, she does it not to compete, but to truly not suck at life!
She has 20 years expereince owning and operating a successful real estate investment and management company…a “family business”…yikes! But her real passion lies in seeing others recognize their own potential and become more than they ever thought they could be through leadership development and learning to love yourself for who you were created to be.
Her own journey has taken her through an eating disorder, anxiety, depression, recovery and divorce; but through it all she has gained resilience, humor, insight and a heartfelt honesty that she willingly shares with anyone interested in listening. For Amy, Life Beyond RX means balancing all the roles in life (mom, daughter, sister, boss, friend, agent) while keeping her footing grounded on a path progressing forward.
