Hi, my name is Tia Copes. I am a mother of 4, a daughter/daughter-in-law, sister/sister-in-law, friend, and a widow. I am originally from Altavista, VA, and moved to the Jacksonville, NC area where my late husband, SSGT Gregory T. Copes, served as a MARSOC operator in the USMC. Tragically he was killed in action on August 17, 2012, just 2 weeks shy of returning home. I became a widow at the age of 32 and was faced with raising our four children, at the time ranging in age from 6 months to six years old, alone.
Over the past 5 years I have faced many challenges within myself and with my children. There were times I felt alone, extremely frustrated, and not sure how to function. There were even times when I felt happy, excited, and ready to conquer the world. With the help of my family and close friends I have been able to find a path where I can help myself, my children, and others who have felt pain and sorrow, to find a new, healthier beginning.
I am a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist through the Grief Recovery Institute. I help provide the correct action choices to assist clients to move beyond the pain caused by a loss. In my 7-week, one-on-one program I provide a safe environment in which we look at old beliefs about dealing with loss; to look at what losses have affected your life; and to take new actions which lead to completion of the pain attached to one of those losses.
I am a Master Certified Health Coach through the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute. I provide support and guidance as you set goals to make sustainable changes, improving your health and happiness. I will take on the role of a heart with ears and help you to navigate the world of nutritional advice and determine what changes are best for you.
I am an Independent Distributor for Young Living Essential Oils. I started using essential oils when my oldest was suffering from anxiety and panic attacks, and when it seemed like we were always sick. I have been able to provide healthy and positive alternatives for myself and my family. Young Living offers hundreds of single oils, blends, and oil-infused products for your home, personal care, health, and fitness. Whether you use oils for aromatherapy, personal care, or household solutions, every aspect of your daily life can benefit from the incorporation of essential oils!
I am an Ambassador for Teamotions. Teamotions is a new and delicious line of teas that help foster and support emotional well-being. I began using Teamotions teas a few months after Greg’s death, and later became an Ambassador because I love Teamotions, what it stands for, and more importantly, because these teas are amazing and I want to share them with others!
I am a Representative for Wildtree. Wildtree was founded on the premise that food should be natural, nutritious, delicious, affordable, and easy to prepare – all at the same time! I began using Wildtree when I saw that they were Certified USDA Organic and Certified Gluten-Free, as well as offering easy to follow meal plans that help reduce the stress of “What’s for dinner?”
I am a Representative for Juice Plus+. Juice Plus+ is whole food based nutrition, including juice powder concentrated from 30 different fruits, vegetables, and grains. We started using Juice Plus+ as a family to help us get those extra servings of fruits and vegetables that are easy to miss during a busy day. Better yet, the gummies are kid approved!
