I See You Because I Was You
If you're interested in learning how you can lose weight and keep it off without another diet, create consistent routines so that you can feel good about the food on your plate, and show up for those workouts even when the motivation is gone, then you're in the right place!
Let's start here (check all that apply); I'm here because...
A. My healthy eating hardly qualifies as consistent.
B. I'm so tired all the time, I just can't drag myself to the gym.
C. I try meal prepping but by the middle of the week the wheels come off.
D. I'm so busy I can't imagine how I can fit more on my plate.
E. The idea of where to start is overwhelming.
Great news! There is no wrong answer.
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you're in the right place.
Here's the real me.

How I got here.
Since my childhood I struggled with digestive issues and as an adult I began putting on extra weight and finding it hard to get through my days with low energy. I developed a wicked caffeine habit and literally started drinking diet cola from the moment I woke up in the morning until I fell into bed at night.
As a mother of 3 young children I consistently put everyone else's needs before mine. I knew I needed to clean up my eating but I didn't know where to start. As for workouts I couldn't imagine how'd I'd find the time or the energy.
After I turned 40
After I turned 40 I became a distance runner and began to focus on my health and wellness. In a way, I became my very first client. Through research and working with my own health coach I experienced a dramatic transformation. Not only did I lose weight but I uncovered the types of food my body thrives on and which ones give me issues. I've learned how to menu plan & meal prep like a pro so I no longer struggled with that never ending question of what's for dinner. I've given up diet soda and no longer go through my days in a fog. Running has become part of my lifestyle beyond a scheduled workout.
I was so inspired.
My transformation inspired me to earn a certificate from the Institute For Integrative Nutrition where we learned not just about the food we eat but all of the factors that affect our overall health. Nutrition and exercise isn't a one size fits all and feeling deprived or punished isn't the answer to long term wellness. I continue to research ways to support my clients on their path to success with mindset shifts and creating healthy habits that last.
A joyful life.
When I'm not filling my days with work that I love, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, running just about anywhere outdoors, a daily yoga practice, trying out new recipes and new restaurants, reading and traveling.
In short life is really good!
A gift for you.
