My Dream: To open a full-service integrated wellness center
Growing up as a child with a sick parent, I learned firsthand how nothing is more important than good health. In a world where we can do anything or be anyone, something as simple as living healthy and whole seemed so elusive.
As I grew older and had children of my own, I realized that the only time I ever felt truly helpless was when I couldn't help or fix a loved one.
As I began reading and learning, I discovered a fascination for the human body and a hunger to educate and help others. What began with studying nutrition quickly flowed into learning natural healing and connecting the dots from the body to the mind and soul. And although I will never cure cancer or invent a miracle drug, if I help one single person figure out what's ailing them or make one person feel better naturally, then I have fulfilled my purpose. As idealistic as that sounds, it makes my life worth living.
In all that I do, I believe in authenticity. Being true to yourself and what makes YOU tick. Each and every one of us are unique, and different things work for different people. There is no one size fits all program, no "plan", no preconceived notions.
As a certified Health Coach with The Institute of Integrative Nutrition, I work with my clients to figure out what their recipe for success is and to tune into their own bodies. Health is a sum of many moving parts and they ALL need attention and balance to achieve well-being. We use small, sustainable changes, natural alternatives and upgrades to help you feel your best inside and out!
The same week as my eldest son's first birthday, I graduated Monmouth University, Summa Cum Laude, with a double major in Education and English.
After having all my children, I began attending nutrition classes at a community college and finally came across The Institute of Integrative Nutrition and immediately enrolled. In 2016, I became certified as an IIN Health Coach and began practicing immediately!
I was simultaneously investigating essential oils, taking classes and learning all I could on the subject. I became a doTerra Wellness Advocate and Educator that same year... And I haven't looked back yet!
