About Me

 

I am California born and bred, Maine finished. I will forever be a sandy-toed, sun kissed, taco loving, beach bum at heart. If I could wear a bikini and be shoeless year-round I would, but I love the 4 seasons (I'm a contradiction I know.) I love my fur babies dearly. I think bathrobes and hot tea are completely justifiable reasons to get up in the morning. Being outside, barefoot, in the garden, hiking in the woods or at the beach, grounds me and keeps me centered, happy and connected. I love, love Maine for this reason. I am perpetually surrounded by Mother Nature and all her glory; reminding me how small I am. I love food and cooking. I think good food and drinks with awesome people is the formula for a great time. I love to read, preferably curled up in my bathrobe with tea, first thing in the morning, puppies sleeping on my feet. I hope to one day be a published author – NYT Bestseller would be icing, but I'll work towards finishing the novel, cookbook, and wellness guide first. I love yoga and spinning classes. Potato chips are my kryptonite (don't expect me to share). I'm always up for trying something new. The beach is my church. Yoga is way better when done outside. I believe life is all about balance which I practice daily.


What Led me to Becoming a Health Coach:

I always knew I wanted to work in health care, it just took some time for me to figure out in which field and also for the field to manifest. I attended UCD in CA with a double major in Pre-Med and Philosophy. After graduation I moved to Maine with the plan to be there a year, apply to med school and move to New York or Boston. Something deep inside me was freaking out and I had to listen to that voice, I also knew standard medicine was not the path for me.

I have always loved food and nutrition. Food is central to everything we do and how we feel and live. So I started looking through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition website and enrollment guide. By the time I got to the end of the guide I knew it was for me. By December I was enrolled in the 2015 class to become an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach.


I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in December 2015, where I studied a variety of dietary theories, practical lifestyle coaching methods, self-care techniques and so much more. Since that time I have continued to expand my knowledge because my personal love and interest in health, wellness and nutrition.

Working with me as your Health Coach we co-create a completely personalized action plan based on your goals to move you toward your ideal vision of health within your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and resources. I loved my education and it corresponds so closely with my own philosophy and approach to my life. I firmly believe food is medicine and that we all deserve to live health, happy, fulfilled lives.

I look forward to working with you to help find balance in your life.
