Job: Health Coach.

Childhood ambition:  To be a great mom with three kids and a career I love. All of which has come true!

Favorite foods: Raw cashew butter on spoon—or on anything else. Green smoothies.

Health concerns I've cleared up: Using nutrition, I’ve been able to create more energy, develop an understanding of how to balance my own diet and hone the ability to create results.

What I love about health coaching: Seeing my clients transform themselves before my eyes—attaining weight goals, seeing improvements in cholesterol and creating better skin, sleep, digestion, as well as clearing up congestion, building healthier marriages and raising healthier, happier children.

What I love about Integrative Nutrition: I couldn't believe someone had invented a program that trained people to have a career doing what I already did in my life! IIN gave me the tools and the push to just get out there and do it. It is a launch pad for reinventing yourself. A place where you help others to do the same.

About My Practice

My specialty: Providing the tools, inspiration and motivation needed to create vibrant, optimal health. I support clients in their quest of increased energy, enjoyment of every day, attainment of life goals and reduced reliance on the healthcare system. Clients experience improved energy levels, digestion and better stress management.

What my clients love about my program: As one of my clients said of me: I am a "health professional, therapist, analyst, coach, rabbi, guru and friend, all at once."

My favorite juicy question to ask my clients is: When were you not feeling or experiencing that condition or symptom?

In addition to seeing clients, I also: I’m the mother to three girls and a wife of 25 years. I enjoy yoga, trying new recipes, and staying current on what's happening in the world of health and nutrition.

How my life has changed: I was formerly a retired marketing executive and stay-at-home mom. I was not looking for work when I discovered IIN.  Now I have a thriving health coaching practice and have been featured in The New York Times and on Martha Stewart Radio.

How I am making a difference in my community: I am looked at as a health and wellness expert.  I am regularly asked to speak at community, school and philanthropic organization events.

My greatest success so far: Being a guide for amazingly successful people, enabling them to become even healthier than they previously envisioned they could be.

In the future, I see myself: Having more media coverage, leading a successful corporate wellness organization and living by example through my own balanced lifestyle.

The message I want to get out: In our overscheduled and hypercompetitive environment, prioritizing your health is the foundation for everything else you want to do.

My favorite inspirational quote:You can do it all, just not at the same time.”—Anonymous
