A Healthy U Conference Update! Speakers, Sessions & Sponsors

by Nellie

Happy Friday y’all!

This week was one of those rare weeks that absolutely flew by. It might have have something to do with the fact that I attended 5 events this week. Yes, I know. The good part though? They were all really amazing and I can’t wait to share all the good stuff with you, trust me you don’t want to miss it next week!

Can you believe that there is only 2 weeks to the A Healthy U Conference?! I am so excited because I am going to see some of my favorite  bloggers like Brittany, Allie, Patty, Lia and Carly to name a few! Plus there will be a lot of friends, co-workers and New people to meet too!

Planning a conference is no joke. There is a lot of hard labor and planning that has gone into this. We have really thrown our hearts and souls into making this dream came and I can’t wait to see it come to fruition in just a couple of weeks. Hats off to those who plan overnight conferences–amazing.
