I made the decision to leave my teaching career when I realized that what I had to offer extended way beyond the walls of a classroom. For over six years, I taught science, health, and psychology to high school students but I always felt something was missing. I truly believe experience is the greatest form of education and I have a strong passion to share what I’ve learned through overcoming obstacles and finding purpose and fulfillment in my own life.
As many of us have, I struggled with self-esteem, body image, and health issues for most of my life. As a result, I lost myself completely in a marriage that failed because I wasn’t connected to my intuition. When I finally figured it out, I went through a less-than-easy divorce with a two month old baby, which catalyzed a spiritual journey of finding my identity and purpose. During that time, I also had a terrifying traumatic experience that provided a brand spankin’ new appreciation for life.
To expand my knowledge and augment my degrees in Bio and Psych, I enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to become a Certified Holistic Health Coach and get my own health on track. The final year of my teaching career pushed me into a state of stress that impacted my mental and physical health so I knew it was time for a comprehensive change. I learned how to practice self-care, eat in a way that better supported my body, and take control of unhealthy thought patterns. I also opened myself up to spiritual practices that have allowed me to live in peace and flow with the universe in a way I never knew possible.
My experience and education equips me with the expertise to tackle problems that women struggle with from many different angles. In addition to helping you change limiting beliefs and thinking patterns, establish self-care practices, develop healthier habits, and explore spirituality, I will also introduce you to nutritional concepts that will support your lifestyle and help you feel your absolute best. If you’ve struggled with dieting and body image issues, I’ll teach you to apply the concepts of intuitive eating to help you reconnect with your body and establish a healthy relationship with food. Whatever your struggle is, I’m here to help you navigate your way to a healthy and satisfying life. You deserve the chance to find the best version of yourself.
