Angela

ANGELA STEC

As Business Manager for Beyond 40, Angela is the jack of all trades in the B40 family. Having started her journey with Shaun and Karen back in 2014 with their e-book company, Get Lean After 40, Angela helped build the organizational foundations for Beyond 40 in 2020 and continues to keep the day-to-day operations moving forward.

You could say her spirit animal is an Octopus - with her hands in all the Beyond 40 pots, she’s a multitasker and organizer at heart.

In her spare time, Angela loves to experiment in the kitchen with her husband and daughter and often sends delicious baked goods to her co-workers. She is an avid runner, having completed multiple half marathons and one full marathon while raising money to fight against local human trafficking issues in her community.

Having battled with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and negative body image issues her entire life, it’s always been difficult for Angela to lose weight. After working with Shaun and the Beyond 40 team and utilizing their products and programs, Angela has been able to maintain a healthy weight and still enjoy those baked goodies she loves to make with her daughter. She loves that through Beyond 40’s products, she can help others to reach their health and wellness goals and experience the same peace and self-love she has found!
