My title:

Wellness Director

My mission:

I have a gift — I truly enjoy helping people.  While I like helping people in general, I have narrowed that down even further and understand my gift is to help people reach their goals. Over the past 26 years, I have trained and motivated thousands of clients to reach their health objectives. I get the same amount of enjoyment helping a client get off their blood pressure medication, lose weight, or set a weight lifting record.


Why I love my job:

According to studies, 70% of all chronic disease and illness are lifestyle related and therefore preventable. I get the rare opportunity to assist people in either getting their health back or prevent it from slipping away.


How I can help you:

As a certified health coach, my job is to help you recognize patterns and behaviors that may be having a negative impact on your health. Once we accomplish that, we then create tools and support systems that foster an environment where the new behaviors can grow. I coach both individuals and organizations and look forward to working with you.
