About Me

I am an expert in ‘Change‘. Having reinvented my own career and refreshed my entire approach to food and diet; I am confident that I can help you initiate and follow-through with the changes that will bring you the life that you have always wanted. I will guide you into the body and life that you will love.

Several years ago I became stuck in a body and career that felt foreign. As a consequence my life felt unfulfilled. This story isn’t all bad, as there were many things in my professional life that I enjoyed, but I needed a change.

While I had gained valuable experience from my Master’s in Health Services Administration, and I felt invigorated leading Doctors through health and wellness programs. I needed to re-invent myself, but I didn’t know where to start despite the answers being right under my nose.

I was in a body that had given me three beautiful kids, but felt smothered by all the physical changes to it. Feelings of self-loathing and disappointment occupied my mind. I was hiding by covering up my body and my dreams under a shroud of negativity, excuses, and depriving myself of joy. I was afraid to let the world see the beautiful, and smart woman that was buried deep within.

I knew that life coaching would help me break the cycle of excuses that were holding me back. And it did. I learned to rid myself of shame and to stop blaming myself. I replaced my self-loathing mindset with thoughts of compassion, and self-love; which helped me to see the beauty of my body, and evolve into a life I knew I was meant to live.

All these positive changes made me want to reach for food that felt healthy, and comforting. Before long I was drinking water infused with fresh fruit. Slowly, I began to create my own recipes using fresh ingredients that were nourishing and healed my soul.

Today, I love and appreciate my body. I continue to create and cook healthy food. It has given me the strength and most of all the confidence to go after a life I truly want and deserve. I am walking taller, shoulders back, and proud because:

I created a life:
– that is healthy and vibrant
– that is full of joy – my own personal ‘joie de vivre’
– that encompasses a career I love

I’ve taken all my academic and professional experience in the healthcare field to help incredibly smart and capable women uncover their potential. Together I can help you realize the joie de vivre lifestyle that you have always dreamed about.
