I have spent the past 35 years studying the ever-evolving science of nutrition, exercise physiology and wellness. During this time, I've seen diet trends, exercise fads and approaches to wellness come and go. I believe that each of us has a unique biochemistry and that there is no one perfect diet for all. I am passionate about coaching my clients to understand how to move forward with their own personal plans for optimizing their vitality.
I have witnessed how our current lifestyle often puts us out of touch with our basic human needs for nature, meaningful relationships, real food, quality sleep, regular fun and downtime. We have always had 640 muscles -- we are meant to move them. We are not nocturnal and feel our best when following the diurnal pattern of sunrise and sunset. We need time in nature, time with friends, time to laugh and enjoy our turn on the planet. Our mindset is one of the most important aspects to our well-being.
We are in the middle of a crisis in autoimmune disease and our bodies are telling us to pay attention .... This is my role with you. I am here to show you where your body is malfunctioning at a subclinical level and coach up your vital reserve. If you are reading this now, you have vital reserve, but do you have enough to feel great? By exploring the areas of food, rest, exercise and stress we develop a plan that is specific for you.
I have a Master of Science degree in Human Performance and am certified as a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner through FDN, a Personal Trainer through National Association of Sports Medicine (NASM) and as a health coach through The Institute For Integrative Nutrition (IIN).
