Certified Health & Lifestyle Coach
I have been interested in the health field since I was 16 when I attended my first yoga class. I loved the way Yoga made me feel. The experience was definitely one of uniting mind and body. The study of Yoga led me to the study of healthy eating and nutrition. I became a Yoga teacher, teaching in many settings. As a yoga teacher I also began to teach healthy cooking in community centers and senior citizen centers. I then decided to deepen my training in the health field and became a registered nurse and fell in love with labor and delivery, postpartum care and newborn nursery. I eventually branched out and worked as a birth assistant and midwife for a number of years as well as a doula. I am married and I had three children of my own and raised them naturally. They are all three nearly grown now and my passion for natural health care continues to thrive.
In 2007 I became certified in FirstLine Therapy™, a therapeutic lifestyle program designed to promote and restore health, prevent degenerative disease, and foster healthy aging. Through this program I myself have lost 20 pounds, so I know the struggles surrounding weight loss. As a result I have worked extensively with people who want to lose weight and achieve and maintain a healthy body composition. I have helped individuals to improve and decrease their biomarkers for metabolic syndrome.
Going through my perimenopause has been somewhat of an adventure and I have personally been learning how to nurture myself through this change which is why I especially love to work with women going through transition and who are too stressed out to plan meals and eat healthy or nurture themselves. I find great satisfaction in helping people find ways to bring a sense of balance, peace and accomplishment to living their best lives.
Bring a sense of balance, peace and accomplishment to living your best life!
