I am a Wife, Mom, Daughter and Family Nurse Practitioner. Wearing all of these different hats allows me to be qualified as a Health and Wellness coach. I promote Health and Wellness through several different processes; educating, guiding and listening. I am a healthcare Advocate and will guide people to wellness by teaching them how to use their own voice to advocate for themselves or their loved ones when navigating the ever changing and stressful healthcare system.
I enjoy spending my time with family and friends. I love to learn about people and new things. My day is not complete if I have not learned something new. I have worked in medicine for over 20 years, throughout those years I have seen hundreds of people struggle with diagnoses, such as diabetes, obesity, anxiety, and depression be unable to achieve their health goals. They try everything to lose weight without success, they listen to what their medical provider is telling them to control their diabetes and get the blood sugars down but they just cannot do it. What I have found is lack of education and a negative mindset from years of “failing” at what they have been working for. I have a passion for teaching and I empower people to go after those goals, change their mindset and achieve a happy healthy life.
Personally, I have struggled with multiple autoimmune diseases which I managed with diet and stress reduction. I taught myself how to meditate and do breath work to achieve a well balanced life. I quit the fad diets and counting calories and killer workouts, now I use my mind and food to maintain my health and weight.
As a Health and Wellness Coach, I have helped numerous people empower themselves to make positive lasting changes in their thoughts about what a healthy lifestyle is. I help people to find inspiration and a positive attitude to make the same lifelong changes in their own health, that I have made in mine.
