MY FAVE VACAY SPOT
Nutrition is something I fell in love with through bodybuilding. I began competing in figure at the age of 18 and was fascinated by the impact nutrition had on how my body looked and performed. But it wasn’t until I encountered my own struggles with health that I came to realize nutrition also had the power to heal, to improve not just how I looked, but also, how I felt. In 2012 I began to notice my digestive health was changing. I was referred to several gastroenterologists, and always wound up leaving more confused then I was before. I was told I had IBS, told I needed to de-stress, one even told me I would be benefit from therapy. No one seemed to be able to help. Everything I ate upset my stomach, and I was constantly running to the bathroom. My digestive problems taking away from my ability to step into my life. Finally in 2014 a colonoscopy came back showing inflammation in my sigmoid colon and I was diagnosed with IBD (Ulcerative Colitis) and told that apart from medication (of which they recommended two) and a low fodmap diet there was nothing I could do. Since that did not sit well with my heart, I pressed into prayerful guidance and direction, dove deep into self guided research and continuing education programs, and began to discover that autoimmunity - most all chronic health issues for that matter- is not only manageable but reversible. I even began to question my diagnosis itself. The more I learned the more I realized that nutrition and lifestyle are medicine. The tools to change how I felt weren’t going to be found in doctors offices and prescriptions, but in what I ate, in how I lived, and most of all, in the Lord. Health is not simply calories, it’s the sum of every aspect of what makes us human- our mind, our heart, our body yes, and also our spirit. In April of 2020 a routine colonoscopy came back clear. No colitis. None. That same year I went back to school, studying at the oldest nutrition school in the country, the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York. I graduated a year later, and sat for and passed my IAHC board certification. In 2022 I completed further study and sat for, and passed my NBWHC certification, the most prestigious certification program for health coaches. I look back on all the pain, uncertainty and confusion, and can now see that the Lord was at work. What happened to me, had purpose. Our pain is never wasted. Everything I went through was by God's divine hand. He was working it for my good and His glory. My mission is to apply the best of what I’ve learned through my personal health struggles and my success as a competitive athlete, along with my professional education to help empower others. God gives us all just one body. I want you to both look and feel good in it. Because when we look and feel our best we are positioned to walk out Gods calling in our lives. I pray that whatever it is you are searching for, you find it here. Whether that be some sort of answer, a light bulb moment, deeper education, guidance, hope, resources, or tools, I hope that my journey, my experience, my education and my expertise, can help empower you to take control of your health and body.

WHAT IS HEALTH COACHING?
Health coaching can best be described as a comprehensive, integrative approach to health. Certified Health Coaches are credentialed members of the healthcare industry who bridge the gap between conventional or functional medicine and traditional diet coaches or fitness trainers. Not only do health coaches have foundational knowledge in nutrition, but we also have additional training in the science of health behavior change which is what makes hiring a health coach so powerful. My approach to coaching can best be described as "integrative". I view health as the intersection of all things that make us whole- the mind, the body, and the spirit/soul. As a health coach I use my broad knowledge of health and wellness to help people navigate a variety of body compositions and health concerns, while providing a place of unconditional support, accountability and encouragement.
