Who I Am
I am the descendant of farmers and artists, creative, hard working people, who consumed a variety of colorful plant and whole grain foods, breathed fresh air, exercised, and held solid beliefs in the goodness of people. Mindfulness is key to my and others' success.
I studied nutrition, psychology, and education, worked in hospitals, community health centers, taught health, fitness, wellness in K-12 and college and fitness centers, and managed regional health prevention/promotion programs, regionally.
I am a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC) and AADE Diabetes Educator (CDE), facilitating healthy living, through lasting behavior change, in areas of nutrition/healthy menus, cooking & shopping, safe & effective exercise, weight management, stress reduction, sleep, and mindfulness, (for prevention, management, or reduction of the effects of chronic illness).
Yours in Health,
