One thing to know about me is that I am passionate about nourishing food and lifestyle habits, because they continue to reinforce and sustain a greater life experience for me. I want to help you have an even greater experience of being alive in this world by feeling excellent in your body, simply by doing the best that you can with the options available to you at any given time. It’s not about having more discipline, deprivation, or trying to perfectly follow the “right” diet and exercise regimes. Like a Sherpa on your evolutionary path of wellness, I guide you to easily make your health great, so you feel truly happy with your body and excited to be living your amazing life. I offer support to guide you in discovering what foods and lifestyle practices work best for your unique mind-body constitution, current phase of life, and personal preferences. I work with you personally to create simple steps that fit seamlessly into your daily life, so that you reach your ideal body weight, elevate your mood and have more balanced energy, all while still enjoying the foods you love.
I am a Holistic Health Coach, certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I was trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied practical lifestyle coaching methods.
I completed the 200-hr Yoga and Ayurveda Teacher Training and Mentorship Program at Tejas Yoga Chicago, under the study of James Tennant and Jim Bennitt. I have been a staff member at Tejas for years, and continue to study there.
I’m a certified Reiki practitioner of the traditional Usui System of Natural Healing (lineage of Phyllis Furumoto) through Bernadette Doran, director of Equilibrium Energy and Education.
I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, with a studio emphasis in ceramics. I'm especially fond of homemade meals on handmade dishes, and my signature home blended tea in my handmade cups.
