Random and Quirky Facts About Me:

➡ I like to sing REALLY loud and totally off-key. I will stop and dance anytime I hear "September" by Earth, Wind, and Fire or "Keep it Comin Love" by KC and the Sunshine Band.

➡ I can wiggle my ears.

➡ My husband, stepson, and I are all only children.

➡ I've never eaten a hotdog. Ever. But I will never turn down a plate of bacon.

Survivor ~ Army Wife ~ Best Selling Author

🤗 Hello, my new friend! I'm Holly Bertone! I've been given the gift of being a breast cancer and Hashimoto’s survivor. My superhero power is sharing how gratitude builds fortitude... and knowing every lyric to every 80's song ever made (Duran Duran and Culture Club are my FAVES).

After spending 25 years rising through the ranks of consulting and federal government service, my failing health shattered my corporate dreams.

Thankfully, I’m honoring these changes as a gift and found renewed purpose as a Gratitude Coach and Wellness Consultant.

I’m the CEO and Founder of Fortitude.Academy and the health and wellness website pinkfortitude.com where I help women view their chronic illness as a gift and unwrap resilience using a proven method to build fortitude with gratitude. You may have seen me on TV and radio segments, articles, podcasts, and summits AND... #bucketlist... my book on the #1 spot on Amazon.

In my free time, I love to garden, and hit flea markets to find cool vintage treasures like dresses from the 40's and 50's or WWI trench art. I'm married to a retired Green Beret, I'm a Stepmother, Pug Mamma, and live in Alexandria, VA.

I'm so excited that you are here because it shows your desire to take your wellness journey seriously -  and make real, lasting changes. 

So let's go! You've got this!

love. hugs. inspire.
