NBC-HWC and CDES
I am a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC) and AADE Certified Diabetes Educator Specialist (CDES), facilitating healthy lifestyle through lasting behavior change. Goal: prevent, manage, or reduce negative effects of chronic illness.
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 and prevention programs.
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, and exercised. Mindfulness and believing in the goodness and capability of all people are key to my success as a Health Educator and Coach.
Yours in Health,
