ME, IN A NUTSHELL

Energetic, adventurous, curious, optimistic, and excited about life

Athlete; Neuro Science/Anatomy Nerd; Change Agent; Transplanted Californian; Perfectly Imperfect Human

Let’s make these circles around the sun count.

Our wellbeing relies on the connection between our physical and emotional selves. Many of us live in our heads, many of us live in our bodies; when we integrate the two our possibilities are endless.
I’m a national board certified professional health and wellness coach and yoga instructor. I am honored to help my clients achieve their health and wellness dreams and create sustainable, positive and strength-based superpowers of joyful living. I live and work in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Founded local chapter of the non-profit, Girls on the Run

I have lived my life pursuing my passion of helping women and girls find, embrace and live from a place of belief in their super powers of strength and possibility and to know that this belief will change not only themselves, but the world we live in. Please go check GOTR SEMI to see the amazing work this organization does.

I have been there:

Everyone has their story, and I am no different. I’ve had my share of struggles and have reinvented myself more than I care to comment on. This means I am perfectly human. I am amazed and so grateful that each day I have a chance to make the world a better place, from compassion, empathy, kindness and dogged red-headed determination.

I coach to a code of ethics and know exactly what to ask:

The right questions lead you to deeper insights. As a Nationally Board Certified health and Wellness coach I am bound by a code of ethics and committed to my ongoing learning and growth.

 

Life is messy. People depend on us. There’s plenty of distraction. Let’s take back YOU.

 

Start where you are.

  • Your authentic self is always invited and warmly welcomed
  • Resistance has something to teach us
  • Curiosity lightens the load
  • Goals are experiments

  • I hope you’ll call because I love meeting kindred spirits.
