For over seven years, I have made it my life’s purpose to help those in need through nutritional counseling, meal planning, lifestyle management and personal fitness training. No matter the chief complaint, it is my belief and experience that optimum nutrition, healthy lifestyle practices and appropriate physical activity are the keys to having the life you want.
I am licensed as a Certified Holistic Health Practitioner by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. To prepare me for this licensure, I received my training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program.
During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. My instructors included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.
My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results. My own personal success story affords me the advantage of being an exceptional motivator and source of support to each of my clients. When I say “I know exactly what you’re going through”, I truly mean it. I have walked in your shoes and shared the same feelings.
In addition, since 2009, I have worked with countless clients with a variety of backgrounds and personalized goals. I have also had the privilege of knowing and collaborating with top health and fitness professionals in the Phoenix area since I began my own journey over ten years ago. I have trained with the best of the best in the fields of holistic nutrition, strength and conditioning training, bodybuilding and power-lifting. Each of these disciplines has made possible the breadth and depth of my cumulative experience. Finally, I have been a contributing author to the AZ Weekly and REGION magazine while always making time for various speaking events in the Phoenix valley.
