My second chance at life came at 31 years old when a blood clot in my coronary artery resulted in a myocardial infarction. As a healthy triathlete in the prime of my life, I was the last person anyone would suspect of having heart disease. The truth is that one in four deaths in the United States are attributed to heart disease, making it the number one killer of both men and women and claiming more lives each year than all types of cancer combined.
I chose to pursue a career in health coaching to help people find their path to better health. I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I was trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. Drawing on this knowledge, I coach others to create a completely personalized roadmap to health that suits his/her unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals.
I am certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners and Yoga Alliance. I received my 200-hour yoga certification from Corepower Yoga in Boulder, Colorado, where I was trained in vinyasa style yoga. I specialize in working with athletes and people with knee injuries.
