Truth be told, it feels like I’ve been training to become a health coach my entire life. I never knew what I wanted to be “when I grew up.” I’ve always wanted to be a little bit of everything – a counselor, a teacher, a personal trainer, a nutrition advocate, a professional mom empowerer (not a real job title, but it’s what I wanted to do).
Life threw me some curve balls, and suddenly, the opportunity to return to school to pursue a career that combined all of my aspirations landed in my lap.
After spending a decade as a marketing consultant, I returned to school to attend the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City, where I was trained in more than 100 dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods.
My instructors included:
I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and dozens of dietary theories; everything from Ayurveda, gluten-free, Paleo, to raw, vegan, and macrobiotics, and everything in between.
I further deepened my health coaching skills by completing an intensive 18-month certification program through the Ultimate U Wellness Center in Columbus, Ohio. During my training, I learned transformational coaching techniques designed to help women heal their relationship with food and their bodies.
As a certified Ultimate U Coach, I’m also trained to help you identify and uproot the emotional and physical weeds in your life that keep you stuck and disconnected from your body. In a safe and nurturing space, I work with moms just like you to help reprogram your thinking and help you reach your unique health goals.
This method of coaching supports long-lasting lifestyle changes by addressing the behaviors that impact beliefs, and in turn, form our identities. Seriously empowering stuff!
My extensive education and thirst for learning have equipped me with comprehensive and relevant knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and a special expertise on how to overcome emotional eating.
I don’t want to teach you how to follow rules. I want to empower you, give you hope, and offer you the resources you need to transform your life!
