I am enthusiastic and optimistic for all that life has to offer. I’m married to a very supportive and loving husband who is an artist with wood in the Home building business. We love to spend time with our adult son, extended families and cat. We also enjoy traveling, hiking and snowshoeing. I care about PEOPLE and am helping people become healthier through nutrition and fitness coaching. However, I have SO much more to offer than just a set of rules.
I has a diverse background which has taught me much about hard work and serving others. I was raised on a dairy farm with horses as the means to get things done. I hold degrees in Travel and Tourism as well as Music Performance with my primary instruments being piano, flute and organ. I am also Nationally Certified as a Music Teacher of Piano and Flute and is Certified in TWO different Nutritional Programs. I have been a Nutrition/Fitness Coach since 2017. Through working on the farm, in hotels and for Princess Cruises, teaching private music lessons, leading nutrition/fitness challenges, consulting with clients, raising a child and serving in church, I definitely know the meaning of hard work and service.
Overcoming Challenges are NO stranger to me. While I have overcome divorce, domestic abuse, asthma, allergies, pneumonia and bronchitis, my biggest challenges have come between 2009-2019. During that time I underwent 11 surgeries and 13 medical procedures which included 3 back surgeries as a result of Degenerative Disk Disease, 5 knee surgeries on one knee (including both a partial and a total knee), a Spinal Stimulator implant, wisdom teeth extraction, foot surgery and thumb surgery. 2019 also required 4 weeks of bed rest. Each back surgery required 3 months of wearing a corset and accepting help to do menial life tasks. The 13 medical procedures were a result of a Nervous System Disease called CRPS. With all these surgeries and set backs, my go to used to be food and then yo-yo dieting.
This all changed in 2017 as I learned the secrets of success. When I say that if I can do it, you can too, this just means that she understands how to help people get from point A to point B. I KNOW with all my heart that when struggles come your way, one doesn’t just drop the health journey AND one doesn’t just jump in feet first and do EVERYTHING! Change is something that takes time. Recovery and Strengthening takes time. It is something that requires modifications at times. Losing weight doesn’t have a “magic pill”. All this requires a MINDSET change and a COACH. These many trials have taught me HOW to get my clients from point A to point B and then to the next steps if my clients are willing to submit to make changes one change at a time.
