Who am I?
I help people understand their bio individuality with weight and overall wellness to help guide them to an improved sense of well-being. I struggled with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), food sensitivities, brain fog, chronic stress, mood issues, chronic hives, fatigue and eventually a flagging immune system. I was a hot mess.
I didn't realize the foods I ate were making me sick. Changing my diet and finding the right health care practitioner to address my health issues helped me to be more vibrant and energetic today.
My desire is to inspire you to grow, transform and to become the best version of yourself and find the pathways to take you there.
I trained at the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, the world’s leading school in Nutritional Psychology where I received my certification as an Mind-Body Eating Coach. I also studied Holistic Nutrition at Hawthorne University.
I advanced my Health Coach knowledge and skills studying at Integrative Nutrition in New York City where I received my certification as a Holistic Health Coach. The training included a comprehensive curriculum covering over 150 dietary theories, learning from world-renowned thinkers and game changers in the holistic world such as Andrew Weil MD; David Wolfe; Deepak Chopra; Joel Fuhrman MD; Walter Willett MD; William Davis MD; Lynn Goldstein MS, RD, CDN - just to name a few.
Training at both schools focused on a holistic approach to wellness and emphasized how personal relationships, work, exercise and spirituality are essential to building good health.
The skills I use from my training are a combination of practical coaching techniques, results-oriented psychology, clinical nutrition, body-centered practices, mind-body science, and a positive and compassionate approach to challenges with food and health.
I received my bachelor's degree in Marketing and Business Administration from Carthage College. I feel this background gives me a unique perspective on how our buying habits, body image, and food choices can be influenced as consumers.
I have been in Corporate America for many years and understand how the high stress can impact one's health. Learning strategies to effectively deal with stress can help you to feel more in control, confident and happier in all areas of your life.
My passions are holistic health and wellness, energy healing, meditation, research, cooking, organic gardening, farmer's markets, essential oils, green cleaning, and last but not least dogs and holistic care for them.
I would like to help you love your body and achieve your better self if it is with weight loss, body image, food issues, or nutrition related symptoms.
Contact me to see how working together can help you be your best self.
