Credentials aren’t what really matters. What really matters is YOU! 

Whether it is through speaking to provide information to help you prevent chronic diseases or through coaching to help you create and live out your unique wellness vision, my goal is to help you become the person you were created to be, living a healthy life filled with purpose, energy and joy.

About me in five words….

Faith: My Christian faith is the centerpiece of my life. My goal is to live a humble and grateful life, loving and serving God and loving and serving people. 

Family: I was a single, working mom for 17 years! This was a stressful and difficult time but my children and I- we were a team. We helped, encouraged and depended on one another and this created a strong bond between us. I am married now and the children are grown but they live nearby and I am so grateful that I get to see them often. I have a sweet grandson, Henry, who is such a joy to me. 

Friends: I value friendships tremendously and I’m intentional about making time to spend with them. 

Flowers: I love flowers! I have 19 rose bushes at my home and roses in our home for months. I also grow zinnias and sunflowers at our church garden to take to a nursing home. 

Food: I love to cook and find new ways of preparing food that is so delicious people can’t believe it’s healthy! I have started a recipe group that meets bimonthly to share whole food planted based dishes and recipes! I would love it if you would join us in this cooking and eating adventure.

Okay one more word…. 

Running: I am a runner. I run with my husband and dear friend, Coach. But I also enjoy running alone outside, enjoying the beauty of nature and just clearing my mind. I get some of my best ideas when I run and I always feel so much better afterwards!
