My training began at a young age as the youngest daughter of two parents entrenched in the organic, slow food, living with the land & health food store culture(s).
My upbringing has shaped who I am and instilled the interest and passion to live a life in harmony with nature and a life of self acceptance that glows.
I want to help others to do this too.
My continued passion for holistic health was recognized after becoming a 500 hour Certified Yoga Instructor. I have been teaching Yoga (& it’s 8 limbs) for nearly 20 years. In 2005 I completed three years of study at the Appalachia School of Holistic Herbalism, where I became a Certified Clinical Traditional Family Herbalist.
Later, I received my training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition‘s cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program.
During my training, I studied over 200 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. My teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.
My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills I work with my clients by honoring each persons uniqueness and making sure they don’t get slipped into one dietary theory that may not work well with their specific needs.
My aim is to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results. Results that bring them closer to their own version of acceptance & glowing brightly.
Another aim of my work is to switch programmed or limited thoughts to go against our diet culture grain, to hone the whole person so that he/she can get on with sharing their greatness with their great community and also in the world.
I look forward to speaking with you very soon and scheduling a time to talk about your goals, and to see how we can help you to live your brightest life as well. Click Here to schedule your first 30 minute strategizing session with me. Ready to Live & Glow?
