Welcome to Wellness Warriors!

With 3 young kids, I understand how truly hard it is to fit in cooking, exercise, self-care, learning about natural remedies, and to be the incredible parent, partner, and friend you always envisioned yourself to be. Then every time you attempt to be healthier your family complains or the information is confusing and overwhelming.  I totally get it!

With my training from several schools (School of Applied Functional Medicine, Institute for Integrative Nutrition, the Institute for Nutritional Leadership, and the Essential Oil Institute) I’m able to draw on many dietary theories, research on habit creation, and best practices in coaching to co-create a plan that suits your lifestyle, preferences, goals, and dreams. I’m here to help sift through all the confusing, conflicting, and overwhelming information and just give you the bottom line of what you need to know.  With an additional certification as a 21-Day Sugar Detox Coach, I can help you beat your sugar cravings for good and find food freedom, more energy, a clearer mind, better sleep, and loss of excess fat.  As a Certified Essential Oil Coach, I can also teach you how to use the oils created by Mother Nature to get you rapid relief and results so you feel more energized and motivated to do the deeper, harder work.

I don’t dwell on counting calories or creating lists of “good foods” and “bad foods.”  Instead, we talk about how to eat REAL food, read ingredient labels, crowd out trigger foods, set up good habits, incorporate movement into your day, use essential oils to reduce toxic exposures and increase health and deal with emotional stressors, and live happy!  If you have picky eaters in your house, I can also share a variety of ideas about how to get the kids more interested in healthy foods.

Sometimes you have to fight to take back your health and that’s what Wellness Warriors is all about…. Empowering you to be your own advocate and arming you with inspiration to live your happiest possible life.  It may take hard work to make changes in your life but with a coach by your side, you’ll have the accountability you need to get there.

Whether your goal is to lose weight, reduce cravings, learn how to use essential oils, detox from sugar, gain energy, get better sleep, or just plain ol’ feel happier, you’ve come to the right place.  Let’s chat to see how health coaching can help you achieve incredible health and happiness!

My Training

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 also studied with Dr. Josh Axe at the Institute for Nutritional Leadership, learning about the latest scientific breakthroughs in nutrition and food as medicine.  Through Diane Sanfilippo, author of Practical Paleo and the 21-Day Sugar Detox, I am also a Certified Sugar Detox Coach and run small virtual groups about 4 times per year.  See my page "Sugar Detox" for more info!  I am also an Ambassador for Dr. Josh Axe and a 21-Day Sugar Detox Facebook group moderator for Diane Sanfilippo.

Through the Essential Oil Institute with Dr. Josh Axe, I became a Certified Essential Oil Coach. I also work for Dr. Axe as an Ambassador helping other oil coaches through the schooling.  Mentoring and teaching others how to establish a thriving oil coaching business is a true passion of mine!

Currently I am taking courses at the School of Applied Functional Medicine.  This education will allow me to lead you through the detective work required to identify the true root causes of your health challenges and look at interconnections between different body systems and hormones to get rapid and substantial results for you.  Armed with this cutting-edge information, I can help you to communicate more effective with your doctors and educate you about the latest studies and breakthroughs that can make a true difference in your life.

Health and wellness is an area of extreme passion for me. I spend every day learning, following the news, and connecting with experts.  I hope I can bring this passion to work for you and improve your health and happiness!
