I’m Bethany, the health enthusiast and writer behind The Avocado Girl.
Known to throw the occasional dance party, I am a fun loving, free spirited wellness junkie. My mission is to inspire others to find healing and joy through movement, real food, and self love.
Thank you so much for visiting my site! I am so excited you’re here because I have so much I’ve been dying to share with you.
First, a little about me…
I’m 25 years old, living in Kentucky, and married to my absolute world of a husband. We have two dogs and a sweet baby girl Alice, who you may see a lot of on Instagram.
I graduated from Western Kentucky University with a bachelors degree in Media Communications and Spanish. Then, I went on to get my associate’s degree in physical therapy assisting. I’ve worked a variety of jobs since graduating, but nothing has ever clicked with me. (Maybe it’s my big personality? I like to think of it as well intended enthusiasm to do something bigger with my life.) I’ll be honest, I got fired from my first ever salaried job. (A story you can read about here). So I decided to change my course and follow my soul’s journey of living a simple, healthy lifestyle to maybe inspire others.
In college, I quickly became known as the “avocado girl” because I would consistently bring avocados everyday for lunch. Hey, they were simple and less expensive than eating in the food court. I was that girl who got a cheap juicer online using a discount code and made “green lemonade” before class every morning…in my dorm room! I was just so crazy about eating real foods that energized me, made me excited about the day, and nourished me. I read books, watched youtube videos, found yoga and educated myself on how important it is to take care of your body and love yourself ❤️ I love the way avocados make my skin glow and I love how eating real, whole foods allowed my body to create an amazing little human. (Read about my pregnancy journey here).
The Avocado Girl is a community where I can share my tips and tricks for living a simple, healthy lifestyle and hopefully inspire you and also learn something in return. I’m all about minimalist living, real food, dance parties, and good company.
So now that you’ve had a chance to know more about me, I want to know more about you! Leave a comment letting me know where you’re from and how you stumbled upon The Avocado Girl.
