Vision: A world of confidence, wellness, and joy

Hi! I’m Carrie Verrocchio… Welcome to Bella Vita – Beautiful Life!

Bella Vita was born out of promises I made to my brother and my father. I lost them both to lifestyle related diseases – and I made a promise to them both that I would help people on their wellness journeys NOW – before it is too late. I promised them that as long as I have a voice, I will speak until there is no-one left to hear; study until there is no more knowledge to gain; care until there is no-one left to care about; and teach until there is one left to learn. This promise became my passion, my calling from God, my LIFE. Through blogs, podcasts, videos, one on one intensive coaching opportunities, and on-line academy (coming soon!) – this is your one-stop location to begin your wellness journey – and continue – day by day with a mentor who cares about you and who will inspire you daily to be the best you have ever been – mind, body, soul, and spirit.

Coaching YOU on a mindset shift journey is a passion that wakes me up in the morning and keeps me going all day. What starts in your mind manifests in your body and in your surroundings. Whether your initial focus is clearing clutter, regaining confidence, losing weight, dealing with stress, time management, improving your fitness level, money mindset, or something else that you can’t quite identify… it all starts with taking your thoughts captive. And that’s where I come in – through individualized coaching, group calls and more – I will guide you through a transformation in your life and those passions that have been hidden for far too long will blossom as you regain control and forge into a life of purpose.

I began my journey with 100 pounds to lose – but the journey has involved far more than weight loss. It was learning how to live healthy, how to love myself and see myself as the wonderful creation that God sees me as, how to live my dreams and live with confidence and a positive attitude. The journey continues. It is reaching out, helping, coaching, being there, teaching. It is bringing and living the joy everyday – despite the circumstances surrounding me.

And that is my vision for YOU as well.

Life is Short; Choose Wisely.

Your choice. Choose to LIVE.


Wellness is a journey, a journey of a lifetime.

When I was in college, I would get up early to exercise but I knew very little to nothing about nutrition, mindset, empowerment, motivation, and emotional and spiritual growth. I was exercising in a desperate attempt to lose the 100 pounds I needed to lose. However, without the nutrition component, the mindset shift, and the empowerment that comes from emotional, mental, and spiritual growth – I was stuck. The weight did not come off… and it left me feeling like a failure. I WANTED change – but I didn’t know HOW to change.

But that didn’t stop me from trying. It didn’t stop me from reading, studying, watching… trying to understand, learn, and grow. When I was in my late 30s, I… Read more
