Job: Full Time Health Coach.

Favorite foods: Popcorn and crisp apples.

Favorite activity outside of work: Playing the piano and singing.

Wildest dream: Creating a wellness center shared with my daughter (who is also a Health Coach) combined with semi-retirement in a vacation home with my husband.

What I love about health coaching: Making a difference in peoples’ lives and seeing my clients reach their goals. People can't live healthy lives if they don't know what healthy means.

What I love about Integrative Nutrition: The tools for success. And the fabulous community of like-minded people. I fell in love with the curriculum and knew I would get the nutrition education, coaching and business skills I needed to open my own practice.

About My Practice

My specialty: Weight loss and connecting women around the world together so they can have additional support. Clients get clarity on how to reach their goals, as well as motivation, and of course, weight loss. My combination of humor and compassion empowers clients to set and reach their goals. I have a unique way of showing them the positive side of every situation so they can see their struggles and successes in a new light.

My favorite juicy question to ask my clients is: Is what you are worrying about a truth or a perception?

How my life has changed: I feel empowered and proud that I have started my own business when most of my friends are starting to retire. I have never felt more alive and sure of myself.

How I am making a difference in my community: A portion of my revenue goes toward scholarships for people who cannot afford my programs.

My greatest success so far: I had a client who literally only ate red meat, potatoes, junk food and soda. By the time she finished her six-month program with me she was eating a balanced diet, exercising, she had lost 42 pounds, and her aches and migraines had completely disappeared.

The message I want to get out: Anyone can change their health for the better. You just need a commitment and small steps to reach your goals.

My favorite inspirational quote:Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others, cannot keep it from themselves.” — James M. Barrie
