My Story

So, let me tell you a bit of my story...

I really don’t think about my weight, and I am not controlled by cravings. I don’t eat a lot of sugar, and I find it pretty easy to balance my nutrition based upon what my body needs.  But wait... read on...

It wasn’t always that way…

I spent many years thinking (literally) moment by moment about weight, food, and cravings. I was addicted to simple carbs like bread and sugar, and I did not know how to balance my eating to sustain my hunger throughout the day.

Sugar controlled my life!

From the time I was 14, I would starve and binge until I felt like I was going crazy – with no hope – and no answers – only blame, shame, and guilt. I was an emotional "stress wreck" and a slave to food. 

Definitely not the best life ever!

I thought that life would never change…   but then it did. At first...I couldn't believe that the answer could be that simple. The solution came when I talked to a trusted friend. They helped me find balance and consistency with my eating and gave me encouragement and support. I learned how to feed my body the way it needed to be fed and the cravings went away!

Today,  I live free from the control that food had on me. My thoughts and emotions are balanced and focused. I am free to think about things that truly matter instead of focusing inward on myself and my failures.  My days are filled with energy and vitality- creating the life that I want to have.  

    " Now I eat to live; and not live to eat."

Over the years, I've gained a deeper understanding and compassion for those who struggle with addictions and cravings.  It is one of the reasons why I trained to be a health coach. I love helping clients create a personalized “road map” that fits their unique body and lifestyle, and leads to a life of healthy transformation.

When you schedule a breakthrough session with me; we will discuss your wellness goals and the practical steps necessary to make them a reality!

I am a "no-nonsense" coach that will guide you toward practical cutting edge health solutions. I love working with people who want to see permanent life change and not just a temporary quick fix.

It would be my privilege to help you connect the dots and live a life free from the control that food and stress can have over you. If you're ready....I can help you find the courage and resources to reach YOUR wellness goals.

  3 Tips to Renew Your Health

1. Look at your food as medicine.  We eat to live - not live to eat.  We can flourish and thrive on real food or slowly waste away on dead food. Food gives us the building blocks for optimal health.  Choosing real colorful food nourishes, protects, and helps us thrive.

2. Know that you are a unique bio-individual. Everyone is uniquely put together. Learn how to feed your body what it needs. Become a student of yourself!

3. Remember that holistic health always includes: Food and Lifestyle.  Determine what foods work best for your body, AND adjust your lifestyle to meet those growing and changing needs. Learning the value of healing and regeneration in a holistic way will lead to a healthy transformation inside and out!
