Health Coach Graduate!

Our class graduation was a little delayed with Covid-19, but TODAY, June 9th, 2020 marks my official graduation day from The Institute of Integrative Nutrition! Woo Hoo I’m a certified Health Coach!!!

I love to celebrate “all the things” large & small, so I’m planning a little smoothie cheers and reflection with my kids. My children, Zander & Zia are the ones who inspired me to take this health focused journey four years ago. I wanted optimal health for them and for our family. That passion and curiosity grew in to devouring as much knowledge about food, nutrition and holistic health as I could possibly absorb. The end goal has always been to share what I know about health, wellness and living joyfully with every body!

I didn’t know health coaching was a profession four years ago, {it was simply my hobby} but as I started to learn more about the coaching industry, I jumped in with two feet! Straight to IIN!

IIN provided such a well-rounded, in depth Holistic Health Program. The weekly modules and tests challenged and pushed me toward growth in so many ways. The women I had an opportunity to coach through our weekly coaching circles grew into friends and confidants. I am extremely grateful for this experience and I’m only getting started.

I feel physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually stronger than ever. I’m moving closer to having total alignment with my souls’ purpose and it feels really good.

My work to help others find their own version of happy & healthy and make it worth with their lifestyle, fills my heart with so much joy!

To feel good in your own body and mind is something I wish for every single person. We all have the power to take charge of our health and happiness and live in alignment with our purpose. I love guiding clients to heal themselves, reach their wellness goals and feel more energetic and joyful than ever!

Thank you IIN and to everyone who has supported me on this journey, especially my family! Thank you for cheering me on with positive vibes and loving encouragement. I can’t wait to be your guide and help you reach your goals!
