My own health journey has seen its ups & downs. I understand how stress is a detriment to health. And the joy generated by an amazing pilates workout or wholesome home-cooked meal! I'm passionate about health & advocacy and know my purpose in life is to share this passion with others. You'll find in me a caring partner in health.
I'm a Type A who values the mental health benefits of a nutritious diet, exercise, quality sleep and mindfulness. And SLOWING DOWN :D! Over the years I've learned to juggle a demanding career, care for a child with special needs, and be a loving partner, mom & friend. I also know how to set a meaningful goal, create a strategic plan to accomplish the goal, and meet or beat that plan! I was turned towards health coaching by a strong motivation to help others experience the joys of a life led healthy.
