About Your Wellness Coach
finding my voice....
I am a Texas girl through and through. I am actually 7th generation from a city called McKinney. I am an only child, married to my best friend, and mother to 2 amazing adult boys.
By nature, I have always had the passion to "help" or "fix" people and situations. I am a problem solver, and a lover of mother nature. The kitchen is my favorite place to be, and I love to create things. So becoming a Holistic Wellness Coach was a perfect marriage of these interests.
My husband and I have a few ventures as entrepreneurs, but I was longing for something that belonged to me. I wanted a way to make a difference, while meshing my passion with my own business. I love making people smile, and to feel good about themselves. I love to feed people real/whole foods. The kitchen is absolutely my favorite place to be and I thank my mom for that. When I stumbled upon the idea of going to school to be an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I knew without a doubt, this was going to be my journey and my way to help people feel better about themselves through food; while offering optimum health for me and my family.
I thank you for visiting my website, and I would love to hear from you.
My training and background:
I graduated in March 2018 from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where 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. My education has equipped me with extensive, cutting-edge knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and prevention. Drawing on my expertise, I work with my clients to help make lifestyle changes and choose health-promoting ways that produce real and lasting results. You will develop a deeper understanding of food and lifestyle choices that work best for you, improving your energy, balance, health, and happiness.
Each session will leave you feeling inspired and motivated. We will talk about things beyond food, seeking to bring balance to important elements of your life such as love and relationships as well as career and money. I will personally and carefully guide you to make simple, small changes that transform your life.
