Full-time health coach and nonprofit consultant, self-published author, blogger, and woefully underpaid COO of a busy family of four—I adore my crazy life and bring my passion, knowledge, and experience to the table to help you love YOUR life—no matter how crazy it is—and reach your goals.
In my private practice, I’m a health coach and sanity whisperer to under-appreciated, under-listened to, under-taken-care-of, under-valued, overwhelmed, overworked, over-scheduled, and OVER. IT. ALL. working wives and mothers who dream of a starring role in their own lives.
On the organizational side of things, I bring health programming to nonprofits—helping them to do well and do good. (I also work with for-profit companies on occasion.)
I received my health coach training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition® and an AAS in Culinary Arts from the Cooking + Hospitality Institute of Chicago (later part of Le Cordon Bleu). In the years BC (before children), I was the owner and executive chef of a catering and private chef company in Chicago, and I’ve taught cooking and nutrition to all ages.
What does that mean for you? I know the value of nutrition—both the whole foods variety and the more holistic kind—and I can show you how you can make the food and lifestyle choices that nourish you … without adding more “shoulds” and hours to your already overwhelming schedule.
I live with my husband in a half-empty nest in Ann Arbor, MI and am passionate about health and happiness, education and exercise, SOLE/SOUL food and social justice.
