IIN Health Coach
My personal health journey began over 13 years ago when I began suffering from chronic fatigue, insomnia, dizziness, and weight gain. I had always been fit and prioritized my health, but I couldn't seem to fix it this time or where to begin. I saw countless doctors but very few had the time to investigate the cause of my issues. From there, I was given several wrong diagnoses and told I would likely never have children. Not only was it an incorrect diagnosis, I remember walking away from that doctor visit completely hopeless and powerless.
After much frustration, I decided to give functional medicine a try; where the focus is on root-cause which is where I had my first interaction with a Health Coach. They really took the time to learn my entire health history and for the first time in years, I felt heard. Fortunately, with the help of my functional doctor and coach, we were able to determine the cause of many of my health matters. Once I began to heal, I eventually realized I had more power over my health than led to believe and with their support, I regained control of my health.
Even before I battled my own health challenges, I have always had a passion for health and fitness. I began to realize how critical our lifestyle is to our optimal wellness. The food we eat and drink, our sleep quality, relationships, and chronic stressors are all critical pieces to reaching optimal health. I have discovered and learned so much over the years in regard to my own wellness. Three healthy kids later, I decided to shift my goals and knew my purpose was to help others achieve their own wellness goals through support, education, and accountability. Combining knowledge with experiences in nutrition and wellness, I help my clients develop personal goals and implement strategies to reach their full potential.
Help individuals identify the areas in their life they wish to improve upon using client-specific goals and action plans designed to reach optimal wellness.
