In 2010, after a devastating health diagnosis, I changed and, in fact, I believe, saved my life. I found out I had an aggressive form of breast cancer and was on the verge of developing diabetes and high blood pressure.
After undergoing a grueling treatment regimen of chemotherapy for a year and radiation for eight weeks, I made radical changes to my diet and lifestyle. I lost 135 pounds and brought my critical numbers into a healthy range. I removed processed sugar and refined carbohydrates from my diet, eating only whole healthy foods. Over time, I became a pescatarian and removed gluten from my diet. I feel better than I did 30 years ago.
After having done what I did for myself intuitively, I realized that helping others achieve the same or similar results was my calling and I earned certifications in holistic health coaching, nutritional consulting and whole food plant-based nutrition. I have worked with several clients over the past few years and have found that most of them have the same issues.
I generally work with women who want to regain their energy and vitality, lose weight, get some good quality sleep, manage hormonal changes and just feel better. They often suffer from overwhelm and confusion about how to go about the changes they need to make to return to good health. We work together to identify their goals and I gently hold them accountable so they can achieve those goals.
Most of my clients feel they don’t have enough time for self-care because of competing priorities. I work with them to figure out how to do it all, or at least to properly set priorities. As women, we often will put everyone else’s needs ahead of our own, especially if we have kids. But, you can’t pour from an empty pitcher so it’s important to take care of ourselves first before we take care of others…just like the flight attendant tells us to put on our own oxygen mask before helping another put theirs on.
My clients are successful because I break it down in easy to implement steps for them and I am there beside them the whole way to make sure they feel supported.
As a health coach, I work with women who are facing serious health challenges like heart disease, metabolic syndrome and diabetes or who have been diagnosed as having a precursor to a serious health issue such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol or high blood sugar. I help them make food and lifestyle changes so they can get healthy, live longer and enjoy a fuller, happier, more energetic life.
