MY TRAINING

I AM TRAINED TO BE YOUR PERSONAL TRAINER FOR HEALTH AND WELLNESS.

I have been studying integrative nutrition, personal growth, and a variety of dietary theories for almost 15 years. I learned the hard way that there is no magic bullet, pill or formula to health and wellness.
Today, I am a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I have learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories – Ayurveda, gluten-free, Paleo, raw, vegan, macrobiotics, and everything in between. 

I also have a Level I Health Coach certification from Precision Nutrition, where I learned a lot about the science of nutrition, how exercise fits into a nutrition program, and how nutrition fits into an exercise program.

With my background and this education I am equipped to help you break free of the struggle, just like I did. And rest assured, because nutrition is actually a fledgling science (there are always new discoveries about what's good for us and what isn't), I am always learning and staying informed.

Lastly, I offer Auricular Energetics along with my coaching sessions if you are able to meet with me in person (I am a certified specialist). Auricular Energetics is acupuncture of the ear without needles. This training exposed me to Traditional Chinese Medicine and taught me about the deep intelligence of our own bodies. This treatment can speed up your healing and detoxing process.

Fun facts: I've also been a lawyer, been married for 20 years, and am a mother of two wonderful healthy and happy teenagers. Crazy fact: I love to exercise!
