I began my career as a teacher, with a degree in Education and Child and Family Development, which includes the study of Psychology. Over the course of the past two decades I have gained experience running several types of businesses, and coaching clients ranging from high school and college students, to homemakers, and businessmen and women in the areas of volunteerism, networking, career, vocation, ministry, program development, spirituality, creativity, and philanthropy. I have experience working with individuals, groups, students, schools, volunteer organizations, corporations and small businesses, event planning, and public speaking.
Eventually, life led me back to my original love: teaching. After experiencing my own health crisis, I embarked on a new journey combining my two life passions ~ education and wellness.
I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories; everything from Ayurveda, gluten-free, and Paleo, to raw, vegan, and macrobiotics, and everything in between.
I studied with the world's top health and wellness experts including:
Joshua Rosenthal, founder and director of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition
Dr. Andrew Weil, director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine
Deepak Chopra, MD, leader in the field of mind-body medicine
Dr. David Katz, MD, MPH, director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center
Dr. Walter Willett, MD, DrPH, chair of nutrition at Harvard University
Dr. Andrew Weil, MD, director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine
Gabrielle Bernstein, bestselling author and life coach

Mark Hyman, MD, founder of The UltraWellness Center

and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities
