I have been interested in health and wellness most of my life and like many Americans I “thought” I was eating healthy. However, as a young woman in my 30’s, I began to have some heath problems that led to two major surgeries. As I began to look more into the foods I was eating and the lifestyle choices I was making, I found that I needed to make some changes to live the life I wanted to live.
Since that I time, I have gradually figured out how to nourish my body. A combiniation of healthy relationships, career, spirituality, yoga and whole foods is what keeps me healthy. I just had my 50th birthday and have never felt or looked better! I have a beautiful granddaughter (and two babies on the way) and I know that I am setting an example for them to follow.
I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I was trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. I also earned a B.A. in Psychology as well as a M.A. in Education. Drawing on this knowledge, I will help you create a completely personalized “roadmap to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals. I specialize in working with women that are struggling to achieve the health goals that up until this point have been unattainable.
I have been interested in health and wellness since I was a young girl. In my late teens I became more intrigued in whole, organic foods and what I was actuallyputting into my body. Once I became pregnant with my daughter I really embraced the importance of nutrition. Not only did I need to take care of my body and mind, but also nourish my growing baby. After my daughter was born I became obsessed with healthy eating to the point that I lost too much weight. Between breastfeeding and only eating limited organic foods I was not provding myself or my daughter with the proper amount of calories and nutrition. I realized that I needed to find a healthy balance of the right foods. With support of family and friends I got on the right path to wellness.
My mom began going to school at IIN and within a few months I too was enolled. I found my path of wellness for myself and a way to spread my experience and knowledge with others. I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I was trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. Drawing on this knowledge, I will help you create a completely personalized “roadmap to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals.I specialize in working with women who are mothers struggling to maintain a healthy lifestyle and to also incoprporate that lifestyle into the family. Too many children are eating “kid foods” that are full of poisons and chemicals. I can help you find balance and support you and your family in making the transition to “real food”. Come with me on this journey and your children will not be eating “kid food” anymore!
