I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I was trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. Drawing on this knowledge, I will help you create a completely personalized “roadmap to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals.
Many clients want to little more about who I am. Let me share where I come from and how I got involved in Health Coaching as a profession. I am a Northwest Seattle gal dropped in South Florida by “default” and I chuckle when asked. I have been interested in health and wellness for more than 25 years. It is “intuitive” and part of my beingness. I often surprised my family with new dinner meals and healthy homemade fares. My passion led me into the world of alkaline-ionized mineral-rich water, giving me a platform and further insight into the world of food — and others’ diseases first hand. I believe in personal transformation, energy and exercise. “We are bigger than our human eyes and intellects can possibly know.” I am in love with love and the passion to help others achieve their personal goals. Sense of community, support and integrity are necessary. There are no short cuts to true healing and growth. It is a journey.
I was an athlete in high school, my proudest moment winning the state basketball tournament as captain of our team. Then playing for the University of Washington. Go Huskies! But did this from my desire as an advocate for true health and wellness.? Graduating from the University with a degree in Speech-Communication and immediately going to work for Pfizer – hum? …
Well that certainly gave me a education into Big Pharma. (My ex-husband and college sweetheart ultimately becoming a board certified Ob-Gyn and education of allopathic medicine first hand.)
I nursed both my children, believing natural was better. I subscribed to Eating Well and Cooking Light. My prized gourmet magazines taking a backseat for ideas that supported that strong maternal desire for healthy children! I invested in my first water system in 1983, fenced our small military back yard to keep my boys safe, and was continually looking for that proactive movement needed for a healthy lifestyle.
Deep inside my soul, there has always been a desire to find the truth and a better – more holistic – way to live. Yes, we can live well, simply and have it all. I marched to a different drum, always guided by intuition and inner voice. I know now that I am here to participate in the paradigm shift. My astrologer Brenda says that I am an original, out-of-the-box, no boundaries creative gal. Because of Jupiter (our philosophy in life or what we’re interested in ) is in Virgo and Virgo is health. So, at my core I am interested in helping others be healthy and she says, “ahead of my time.” And, something that helps mankind; to nurture the world!
Michael Brill, brilliant cosmic numerologist says I am a 9. The “9″ he writes, works to raise the level of self-awareness on the planet, this person is selfless, loves unconditionally, and is compassionate. My horoscope also tells me I am ruled by the moon; the Mother of the zodiac; nurturer extraordinaire. Cancers are the home and family builders. The Michael Teaching tells me I am a scholar (my “primary beingness”) and I have “an insatiable thirst and curiosity for new information and experience.” I am curious, honest, truthful, comprehensive, diligent, thorough, unassuming, methodical and thoughtful. Wow . . .
But no matter what, I am dedicated to my clients. I am here to shift the paradigm to create true health and wellness through education, self empowerment and creative healthy new choices. I live my passion; I walk my talk and I am ready to help you live your purpose with vitality, well-being, and youthful beauty. When you are ready to make that choice for yourself I give you my word, I will be here for you in person or by phone! Call or email me today.
