Certified Holistic Health Counselor • ACE Certified Personal Trainer
Hello and welcome to my website!
I am so happy that you are here! I hope to get to know you and help you become the beautiful, vibrant person I know you can be.
Who am I, and why do I make health and fitness my life? Because I have been exactly where you are right now. I have been in that place of frustration, I have had those feelings of failure, and I have lived in the fear that my health was declining. I truly know what it’s like to both want and need to change your health but to not know exactly how.
I want you to know that you are not alone! I am here to help you overcome all the obstacles, information overload and frustration that you are no doubt feeling right now. You are not alone in your journey to a healthier you.
My journey started 12 years ago…and 54 pounds heavier. I saw myself falling into the lifestyle of illness I had inherited from my parents. At that moment in time I was fat, sick and very unhappy. One morning I woke up and decided it was time for a change. I could no longer recognize the person in the mirror, so I told this person looking back at me in the reflection that she had to go!
That day I applied to go back to college, joined a gym and cleaned up my diet to the best of my knowledge at the time. It was simply overwhelming! I felt very lost, but I did not stop. I read books about health and fitness, learned from professionals at the gym and started following health professionals through social media to help feed my mind. Through the years all the knowledge I had absorbed through my experiences and education started to make me understand how to create a lifestyle of optimal health. I knew in my heart that health was what I would devote my life to, and my experiences and education would give me the tools to do that.
I attained my personal trainer’s certification through the American Council on Exercise®. ACE is the largest nonprofit fitness certification, education and training organization in the world with nearly 50,000 certified professionals who hold more than 55,000 ACE certifications.
I received my training in health counseling from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition®, which is the largest nutrition school in the world. The school offers the world’s leading Health Coach Training Program™ and teaches over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and cutting-edge coaching methods.
My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and the importance of preventive care. Drawing on my education and experience, I work with clients to help make the dietary and lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
I tailored my studies and life experiences to help promote this path, and I am so glad I did. Now, I can reach out and help you!
I love what I do. Completely.
So now it is your turn to talk to the mirror. Now it is your time to make a permanent life change; not a simple diet change or an added day at the gym but rather a new understanding of yourself and how your body, mind, and spirit create a wonderful complete package. Now is your time to change how those pieces fit together to make a truly happier you!
