I am a certified health coach and a graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. My teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities. I have almost 15 years of self study experience through avenues of learning such as health summits, podcasts, interviewing doctors and pharmacists, webinars and hundreds of hours of reading. I have been coaching clients one on one and in groups for over 4 years.
My own health challenges have paved the way for me to better understand the pain, frustration and hopelessness one can experience from being unwell. I have deep compassion for those who feel lost or like they don’t know where to go next. I have been there and I know I can help you find your way back to healthier living.
I really enjoy mentoring other health coaches and helping them dig deeper into complex issues with clients by going beyond how food affects us and really getting into the other aspects of how to live better. Whether new to coaching or just needing to bounce ideas off of someone in the same profession, I am available through the Health Coaches link above.
Listen to my interview on “It’s Your Time to Shine” Radio here.
I focus on the foundational aspects of health when coaching: macro and micro nutrients, movement, sleep, stress relief and fun. When one piece of this puzzle is missing our lives don’t fit together as well as they could. The body has a desire to reach balance and without approaching each of these areas the balance achieved will only be temporary. Working with me requires the desire to really learn what it means to change your life. If you are married to your current lifestyle of full of excuses then I am not the coach for you. If you are ready to be educated, learn health skills that you can carry throughout your life to help you see transformation in all areas of your life then please contact me by filling out the form below.

I will never make false promises or tell a client they can be cured to healed. I believe that getting well is 100% up to the client (not me or the doctor). Getting to a place where the body can repair takes a multi pronged approach and anything I suggest to the client is followed up with “I recommend you talk with your doctor before making any changes”.
I believe that wellness starts with practicing presence, being mindful of the choices you make, accepting your life in this present moment without judgement and taking responsibility for your own health. I offer wellness consulting with different levels and packages available. Please visit the work with me tab above or use the contact form below for more information.
