Hi, I'm jaime!
I’m the founder of Free to Be and a Licensed Professional Counselor who has been working to help people live their best lives for 25 years. I have specialized in working with children and adolescents for the majority of my career and noticed consistent themes occurring with the teen girls I saw in my practice. Young women are getting caught, just as so many women before them, in the comparison game, feeling like they are not enough or don’t measure up and like they don’t belong. Through my own personal development work, I realized how wonderful it would be for girls to start working on themselves at a younger age rather than waiting till they were in their 30’s or 40’s. When girls are able to realize they can be themselves, they will be more confident to find their people, the ones who accept them for who they are. Free to Be is all about teaching girls how to love and accept themselves and to be strong in their voices. I believe that when we are accepting of ourselves, we are able to be more accepting of others which leads to making those meaningful connections we all need in our lives.

As a personal trainer, yoga teacher and empowerment coach, Caroline McCabe educates women and girls all over Northern Colorado on the importance of movement, self-love, gratitude and mindfulness. These practices were not always second nature to her, but have become essential in helping her live an authentic and happy life.
Strength training and yoga came into Caroline’s life when she needed it most in 2008. At that time she was struggling to find her voice and self-worth, was battling low self-esteem, and as a result, she had stopped taking care of herself for many years. When Caroline made the decision to fully focus on her health, physically and mentally, she committed to a strength training, yoga and self-gratitude practice, which ultimately transformed her life. So much so, she decided to devote her life's work to empowering women and girls through movement and mindset work in her business: Mind Body You.
Caroline became a certified personal trainer in 2015 and completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training through Yoga Pod Fort Collins in 2018. She lives in Fort Collins with her husband, Joshua, and fury companions, Hendrix and Grizz. In her spare time Caroline loves to garden, cook, spend time with family and friends, and travel places near and far.
