I am a Certified Health & Nutrition Coach who is passionate in supporting other women get healthy from the inside out. I have a practical, holistic approach to health & wellness, placing primary focus on the individual, not the “diet”.
My story is one you’ve heard before. I was active 6-7 days a week. I ran 5 miles every day. I went to the gym. I watched what I ate and counted calories. I considered myself healthy! But, at the same time, I was also overworked and uninspired. I had relationship issues and began to experience sleepless nights. I suffered with digestive and skin problems. My hair was falling out! I had extreme night sweats at 40?! I was exhausted. I felt out of control, stuck in a body I wasn’t familiar with.
Turns out chronic stress, low calorie “dieting”, intense exercise and extreme fatigue eventually took it’s toll on my mind and body. In 2014 I was diagnosed with Adrenal Fatigue, Hypothyroidism and Estrogen Dominance (which explained the nights sweats!). I flunked all the tests my wellness practioner ran for me. I was in trouble and I could feel it. My body was screaming for help through all these signals it was sending me. The message suddenly became very clear….it was time for change. Serious “life changing” kind of change. Determined to heal my body as natural as possible, I set out on my own personal health and wellness journey. Through lifestyle, career, behavior and dietary changes, I began to experience my life again in a clearer, more mindful, happier and healthier way.
I went from surviving to thriving…I’m living healthier and happier now in my own skin. I LOVE my job and am super excited to guide and support other women who feel they are stuck… who feel that tugging for change and who want support and guidance to make it happen. I feel it is my calling and purpose to provide a window of hope and education on healthier alternatives to women who are ready to make that life changing decision to live healthy on purpose!
