It is through evolving on my own journey that I am able to empathize with others and meet them where they are at as their personal health coach.
My passion is empowering people to take back their health! Once a person realizes that it is “not the cards they are dealt – but how they play their hand,” a life of optimal health and wellness becomes within their reach!
Everyone is on their own journey to realize the health that is their birthright. It is through evolving on my own journey that I am able to empathize with others and meet them where they are at as their personal health coach. My journey began many years ago as I struggled with terrible eczema, hay fever, indoor allergies, and allergies to dogs and cats.
Through working on myself and educating myself on the power of foods and natural medicine, I have learned what it takes to become free of chronic health issues for life and maintain hormone harmony! I have spent years studying herbal medicine and nutrition and I am able to break down the science in a way that is easy for my clients to understand. My methods are simple and powerful!
I am board certified as a Certified Nutrition Specialist℠ Professional (CNS), through the Board for Certification of Nutrition Specialists. Additionally, my membership in the American College of Nutrition keeps me up to date on the latest science related to food and health. Studying different ways of nourishing your body with food (aka “diets”), is the way I know exactly how you should be nourishing your body for optimal health and wellness, to support the reversal of chronic conditions, and to simply feel fantastic!
Vegan? Paleo? Gluten-free? No worries – I have a system that will work for you!
I have published numerous articles on nutrition and herbal medicine in regional and national magazines, and the peer-reviewed journal of Phytotherapy Research. I have enjoyed teaching courses on wellness at the university level, and presenting topics related to herbal medicine and nutrition at the U.S. Botanic Gardens in Washington DC, national trade shows, and area businesses.
Prior to establishing a private practice in Neenah, Wisconsin, I practiced herbal medicine and nutrition in a number of clinics in the Washington DC area and Maryland.
I have a Master of Science degree in Herbal Medicine from the Maryland University of Integrative Health in Laurel, Maryland, the only accredited graduate school in the U.S. to confer this degree. The Herbal Medicine program is a rigorous 90 credit, three year course of graduate study, inclusive of 1,000 clinical hours in the MUIH Natural Care Clinic.
I am also certified as a Registered Herbalist with the American Herbalist Guild. The power of herbal medicine never ceases to amaze me, as I continue to apply the brilliance of natural remedies to support the health of my clients.
As a Certified Kettlebell Instructor, I am able to offer clients a proven method for getting strong and toned without bulky muscles. Kettlebell training is an exceptional means of rapidly achieving strength, cardio fitness and hormone health. I can honestly say that I am stronger now than I was in my 20s! Kettlebell training pays attention to proper body mechanics and alignment, while making safety and injury prevention a top priority.
If you are not able to work with me locally, I will find a Certified Instructor for you in your area of the country.
