President & CEO Pink Fortitude, LLC

Holly Bertone, CNHP, PMP, is an author, blogger, and healthy living advocate. She is the President and CEO of Pink Fortitude, LLC.

Pink Fortitude. The Story.

Pink Fortitude, LLC was created two years after Holly Bertone’s breast cancer treatment, as a way to inspire other cancer survivors. Over the years, Pink Fortitude has grown from its focus on breast cancer to an enterprise of healthy living inspiration.

Pink is the nod to breast cancer of course, and Fortitude was a special word shared between Holly and her mother. Holly’s mother has Addison’s Disease, and from watching her fight this illness her entire life, “Fortitude” seemed to be the perfect fit for this inspirational company.

Meet the Team

Elizabeth Pampalone

Chief Technology Officer — The Web Design Chic

“I created this company to celebrate women who have the courage to run a business. Through easy marketing ideas, I accent and reveal to the world the passion you pour into your business!”

In 2007, Elizabeth Pampalone started her first company, Jax Computer Chic. She started out making house calls for sick computers and branched out into teaching classes. As her computer company grew she decided to go back to her first love and opened a web design firm called The Web Design Chic. In order to get more business clients, she began networking like mad. She saw a need and thus NetworkInJax.com was born. In 2014, she was named “Queen of Jacksonville Networking” by the Jacksonville Business Journal. This led to ventures such as DoINeedABusinessPlan.com and becoming host of 5 meetups and mentoring 7 meetup leaders. During all this, she was an active teaching member of SCORE for five years, an instructor with OLLI UNF for three years, a continuing education instructor with UNF for two years and a small business instructor with the SBDC for one year.

When she is not pursuing her career, she is out ballroom dancing or embarking on an adventure with her husband, Joseph. They were married in December of 2011 and Elizabeth couldn’t be happier!

Sarah Griffith

Fitness Contributor

Hi everyone my name is Sarah Griffith. I am a full time health and fitness coach with Beachbody. After two years time and a heck of a lot of work, I have been able to retire from my full time job as a high school business teacher. As a health and fitness coach, I help motivate women to learn how to get healthy and be happier while teaching them how to put themselves first again. Often we get so good at taking care of others and pleasing them, we forgot how important it is to make yourself and your health a priority as well.  I run monthly support groups online to help  with accountability to achieve their weight loss and well-being goals. Most of my clients are busy working women  just like me who need some help finding the sanity again in life. I have found with a little support I can show them a more balanced and mindful way of life.

My time outside of being a coach is spent with my husband (high school sweethearts) and our 4 year old little boy. I have a passion for finding genuine happiness in my life and find joy in helping others. I have struggled with infertility as well as Hashimotos disease for quite some time,  but still try to always see the glass half full in life. I guess you could say I am a professional optimist. I love cooking and reading personal development books. I’m newly gluten free and a bit of a crunchy mom when it comes to my lifestyle.

I look forward to sharing monthly fitness related stories with all of you! Be sure to head on over to my like page to get to know me better!
