I’m a member of NAHAC, IAHC, The Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine and APHA.
As a functional women’s health coach, I get to guide women on a path to improve their overall health by educating you on nutrition topics and exercise, stress management and problems related to home or work. I can help you find a functional doctor or help with finding the right form of care for your needs to formulate a plan to wellness. I specialize in Women’s Health but can assist anyone that is on the journey to wellness.
I’m now married to a wonderful man and together we are raising a tribe of four children (Landon, Brooks, Abby, and Reece). When I’m not spending time with family or coaching clients, I love to travel, hike and be outdoors. In my past, I played volleyball and I loved to run races (26.2/13.1 Club member).
I look forward to learning more about your & your story. And, to helping you make lasting change that will serve you well for a lifetime.
Thanks for reading to the end!
