In my world, you are my heroes! You deserve your health and your sanity! I am here to tell you I can help!
I am a certified health coach and teacher. I received my training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program and am certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.
I decided to become a Health Coach to fulfill my passion of working with moms and teachers who want to create a happy, healthy family/classroom in this overwhelming world of contradictions. I want to help families and teachers create an environment that is less toxic. I do this through teaching about the food we eat, the cleaning products we use, the medicines we choose to heal our family, and the overall environment we create for our kids to grow and live in.
What is at the center of all I do?!
Kids!!! They deserve to have a healthy future, don’t they? It is our job to guide and teach them to do just that!
During my training, I studied over 100 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 and my knowledge on different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results…not only for themselves but for their children!
I am very proud to say that I am also a certified Elementary Education Teacher and Literacy Specialist. Teaching is in my blood. I know what it is like in the trenches of the classroom. I know the blood, sweat and tears that teachers put into their work. So often we forget about our own self-care!
I have ten years of teaching experience working with young children. I believe that the food that our children put into their bodies directly affects their learning. Why is this being overlooked so often…especially in a time of rigorous standards and pressures?
I enjoy teaching and helping others, and love that I can carry on my passion of education in a new and exciting setting that can change lives!
Healthy Moms and Teachers = Healthier, Happier Children…it is that simple!
