camila parker portraitHi! I am Camila! I am a Brazilian mom of two, a wife, a journalist, an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, a former professional wakeboarder and a runner, BUT this is just the beginning. I am actually a person who loves life and I don’t take one day for granted. I believe in “carpe diem” every second of every minute of every day.

As a kid I was always the one that wouldn’t stop, and as a teenager I was one of the best wakeboarders in the world. I took 3rd place in the World Championship, becoming the first Brazilian woman to complete a Front Roll, and I earned 1st place in the Brazilian Championship.

camila parker timing runIn my early 20s I turned a 180 in my life. I decided to spend my Brazilian summer vacations working in Lake Tahoe at a Ski Resort so I could improve my English and my snowboarding. I met amazing people during this experience, but there was one guy that made me change my entire life goal. Today we are married, have been together for more than a decade, and have two beautiful children.

Now, in my 30s, I am a proud Integrative Health Coach and a competitive runner enthusiast. It’s my passion and mission to pay it forward, and to show other people –especially women – that we can get our body and our health back, and live a life filled with energy and zest for ourselves and our family. And I’m proud to have the support of trusted products from NOW® that I can count on as I live out my mission every day.
