You may wonder how I became a health coach and why. My journey began 18 years ago with a shoulder injury and I experienced Reiki for the first time. Next thing you know I am all over the Reiki and getting attuned! I loved the feeling of serenity I experienced, wanted to stay connected to that, and share that with others.
From there I trained in massage and bodywork at the Institute for Therapeutic Massage and quickly realized the value of hands-on healing for recovery and overall wellness.
In 2011, I had a serious injury - tore my Achilles tendon - and suddenly I was sidelined for a long time. I couldn't do anything for months and it wreaked havoc on my weight, mental health and overall fitness.
During my journey back to wellness, I found the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, a unique school that stresses everyone's bio-individuality and how to optimize all aspects of a persons' being for a fully integrated and healthy life. Who wouldn't want to share that with everyone?
At this point, I realized that my personal health journey presented me opportunities to explore holistic practices along the way that worked for me and could be useful to others.
As a health coach, I bring all of these tools to our sessions to support and nurture you as we explore and develop a personalized wellness plan, unique to you.
Why get a coach?
My top three goals ...to lose 30 lbs., eliminate my
pre-diabetic sugar readings, and develop a life-long appreciation for whole and clean eating.
The biggest tangible change I have noticed since beginning the program has been...35 lbs. in 4 months! Even more significantly is my energy levels have increased and my waistline is now 6 inches smaller!
The most significant overall change ...has been my enjoyment of shopping for food and cooking. I have developed a discerning eye for labels and organic foods. I pamper myself more ...at home and at salons.
