Holistic Health Coach–Fitness Trainer–Gardener–Kitchen Master
My long time passion: Fitness. I’ve been a personal trainer for 20+ years working for myself and teaching in fitness clubs. My early passion for fitness eventaully developed into a life long love of wellness.
My health coaching specialty: I help women with chronic health ailments tune-up their self-care, reduce inflammation, overcome sugar cravings, reduce stress, and love themselves so they can experience more energy, less pain, and greater joy in life.
My Morning habits: I naturally wake up around 5am. I like to watch the sun come up, and do one self-care activity for myself like meditating, exercise, or sauna. I make my bed before breakfast.
My Ideal Bedtime: 9:30pm. I love bed. I have become a little strict about bedtime and my evening habits in an effort to always get as much great sleep as possible. I do occasionally break habit for a fun night out with friends but I generally prefer to “party all day and sleep all night.”
Favorite type of exercise: Dancing or body-only workouts done outdoors.
My go-to comfort meal: Chicken, sweet potatoes, green beans or peas, and a dill pickle.
Favorite childhood food: Hot oatmeal with brown sugar and vanilla ice cream or grandma’s turkey dinner.
What I do to feel at peace: Dance, meditate, write, spend time in nature, and share laughs with friends.
Wildest dream: To somehow massively improve the quality of food that the children of this country are given at home/school and support their parents and food providers to also have the same.
Health concerns I’ve managed holistically: Scoliosis, chronic pain, muscle spasms, migraines, food sensitivities, digestive issues, depression, and anxiety.
Biggest challenge: Cultivating positivity while managing chronic pain.
Favorite vacation spot: British Columbia.
Favorite health tip: Breathe.
Favorite quote: Rules are for tools.
