My name is Odette Cressler and I am the founder of The Harmony Tribe. I was born and raised in Guadalajara, Mexico and I moved to San Diego five years ago. I live with my husband, our daughter Sienna, our son Max and our dog Charlie. We love going to the beach, trying new restaurants, camping, traveling and enjoying the different neighborhoods in San Diego.
I recovered from bulimia three and a half years ago. My struggle with self-worth lasted around a decade and after too many years of suffering I decided to finally seek treatment in 2013. It took a lot courage and it was definitely a tough battle but frankly, I was mentally and physically exhausted from this disease, enough to give recovery a shot. I have been at a healthy place with myself for a couple of years. Recovery isn’t perfect, I still have some days where I struggle but all in all, I’m happy to report I love myself and finally truly believe that I am worthy of love, happiness and a purposeful life.
To me, The Harmony Tribe is an extension of my recovery. It’s a movement that promotes and portrays everything that I have learned along my journey: balance, intuitive eating, self care, self worth, community, consistency, progress vs perfection, health, confidence, positive self beliefs, non scale victories and authenticity. I have been a coach for almost one year and my life has changed tremendously ever since. I am certain that I am fulfilling my life’s purpose with this project and I am excited to welcome anybody who is looking to change their life, for the better.
