Who am I? I am a mother, daughter, sister, friend and advocate for good health and well being. I have a desire to live my best life and to see and help others do the same. We only have one body and the state of one’s health is directly linked to their vitality of life.

My passion for Health and Wellness lead me to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Health Promotion and Wellness Management. I also hold an Associate’s degree in Dietetic Technology. My current certifications include: Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) and an ACE Health Coach certification. I am always seeking out the most current information pertaining to health and wellness. I believe that the whole person spiritually, physically, emotionally, and mentally must be address in order to achieve optimal health.

I have collaborated with Healthcare Professionals in educating, promoting and advocating well-being for individuals at all ages. My desire is to support, educate, promote and empower others to accept their individuality and create a healthy and vibrant lifestyle.
