What I do now…

 

As a wellness coach, I’ve helped my clients lose weight, quit smoking, switch careers, improve relationships, get promotions, deal with emotional issues, get help for addictions & make changes to become the best version of themselves.

 

Now, as a speaker, college educator and writer, I coach people through my teaching to overcome obstacles & build a healthy life. I love working with a variety of groups, ranging from executives and dot.com-ers to moms and healthcare professionals. 

 

As a busy wife and mom of 4, I understand how hard it is to take good care of yourself. But, it's important! You have to make it a priority and I can show you how.

 

Why I do it…

 

My passion for helping others build a healthy life comes from my personal pursuit of building one for myself. My childhood was full of unhealthy choices, limited guidance, and lack of the skills I needed to live well. As I entered adulthood, I knew there was a better way to live and was determined to find it. With a lot of hard work and help, I learned how to grow strong in every area of health & create a fulfilling life. It’s been my greatest blessing to have a career teaching others to become healthy in every way so they can enjoy life too.

 

What I’ve done…

 

My background includes extensive work as a health educator, wellness coach, and program manager specializing in weight management and disease prevention. My experience includes adult and pediatric weight management, wellness coaching in a clinical setting, program development, and corporate wellness programming.

 

As a speaker, I’ve presented programs to a wide variety of audiences ranging from Fortune 500 companies and hospitals, to Mothers of Preschoolers groups and non-profits. I’ve taught hundreds of hospital and corporate classes on weight management and other health and motivational topics for clients like Kaiser Permanente and Sutter Health, among others.

 

As a writer, I’ve published articles in newsletters and magazines, including a regular "Health & Fitness" section featured in Southern California Tennis & Golf Magazine. I’m also the author of Resolve: Strategies, Thoughts, and Beliefs for Healthy Living.

 

Why I’m a creditable health professional…

 

My credentials include a Master of Science degree in Exercise Physiology and Bachelor of Science in Exercise, Nutrition, and Wellness. I’ve also been a Certified Lifestyle and Weight Management Consultant and member of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and American Council on Exercise (ACE) for over a decade.
