March 9th was a memorable evening for fitness and health maven Shea Vaughn and the dedicated friends and supporters of her cause, Healthy Initiative. Celebrate Yourself Healthy at Germania Place was filled with over 800 top socialites to honor the cause and its mission to promote better health practices and fight disease. The launch of Healthy Initiative started with forty participants challenged to transform themselves in 90 days with the help nutritionists, personal trainers, mentors and lifestyle regimes. For those people, March 9th was their day too. Each was showcased in designs J-Na Couture and Mark Roscoe with hair by Custom Hair Lounge and makeup by Josie Volpentesta and Brenda Arelano. The night was hosted by Jeff Conway of NBC’s 24/7, Jon Cotay of Akira and success coach, Bill Walsh.
What comes to mind when we hear the word “Mom?” Do we think of fresh-baked cookies, laundered sheets, home cooked meals, and unconditional love? Or do we think of an entrepreneurial powerhouse with a heart of gold and a passion for health, fitness, and selfactualization? Meet Shea Vaughn: Dubbed “Chicago’s Favorite Mom,” Shea is the epitome of today’s modern woman making a BIG DIFFERENCE at home, at work, and in her community. The perfect combination of traditional and visionary, this brunette bombshell is redefining the concept of “Mom,” and paving the way for people across the country to recreate who they want to be and what they want to accomplish.
Shea Vaughn is a health and fitness advocate who leads by example. Vaughn wears many hats: she’s an author, speaker, life coach, and fitness trainer, to name a few. She is the creator of SheaNetics®, an unparalleled innovation in body resistance exercise and the ultimate guide to self-fulfillment. Vaughn is also the founder of Healthy Initiative, a charity that champions disease prevention through awareness, education, and sustainable solutions for building healthy and joyful lives. I had the pleasure of talking with Vaughn about her new charity, and like Vaughn, I believe her breakthrough charity is something we’ve all been waiting for.
