I am on a MISSION to help YOU!
I welcome you to the odyssey of finding a happier, healthier you. I plan for you to become empowered, enlightened and entertained along the way.
I am an Integrative Health and Nutrition Consultant and Coach. My goal is to educate and support those who are interested in improving their overall health. This means addressing not only nutritional needs, but also other areas of our lives that make us happy, content, safe, empowered, inspired and so much more. By changing what we put in and on our bodies and ridding as many toxins in our lives as possible, we will not only make a huge difference in our own health, but also impact the health of those around us and our planet. And by fulfilling our personal life needs, we can release our burdens and allow ourselves to focus on more than our daily struggles. When we have satisfaction and contentment, we have the energy to give to others in our lives, our community and our world.
Since birth I have been on a health journey of sorts. My dad was especially devoted to true health through food. He believed in and prepared whole foods, nutritious meals, and even baked our bread. Later in my childhood, we got unprocessed milk directly from a farm and made our own butter and whipped cream from the cream on top of the milk. We were not “allowed” to eat sugar, but I always struggled and cheated. I still do to this day. I was taught early on about the effects of not eating a healthy, balanced diet. Like so many, as a young adult I strayed from those teachings for many years.
When I had my own children, I became acutely aware of how important that healthy lifestyle had been for me. I started doing research and implementing organic, whole foods into our family diet. I became increasingly alarmed at the use of chemicals in foods and medical treatments. My boys suffered from bronchial issues and endured many trips to the ER, doctor visits and medications. I felt like I was complicit in poisoning their little bodies. I couldn’t live with that and studied natural cures instead, trying to implement them whenever possible to ensure my children and our family did not become harmed by chemical medications and treatments. Now, whenever possible, I try to use holistic approaches in wellness.
I have always tried to share my health knowledge to help others, sometimes with success, limited or delayed success, and sometimes with resistance and/or rejection. It is incredibly frustrating and sometimes heartbreaking to possess information to help people lead healthier, happier lives, and to offer that gift, only to see them prefer to continue on the path away from wellness. This applies to my loved ones, as well as those I cared for as a home health aide. So many people could reduce their medications, eliminate or reduce illness and lead happier, healthier lives by simply changing their diet and lifestyle.
All of my passion and knowledge recently found a home, a more focused vision and larger purpose. I enrolled in The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I received my Integrative Nutrition Health Coach certificate. This is an incredible program that encompasses the WHOLE person. It addresses not just the food we put in our mouths, but also the “food” of our daily lives that gives us purpose, fulfillment and the power to find our own happiness. We all want to feel loved, accepted and significant. I now know how I can use my passion, knowledge and desire to help others find and travel their individual paths of happiness and health. I am driven to make a difference in the lives of others and our world. To live one’s calling is the greatest gift, and I believe it should be used to further the betterment of humanity. I personally understand the struggles of striving to live a happier, healthier life, and I am devoted to educating and supporting those who want to embark upon that journey!
