I serve women of faith who desire freedom from whatever it is that is holding them back and making them feel stuck. I am blessed to give them the tools they need to grow into who they were created to be.
I feel honored to share my story with you and pray that it brings you some hope. Most days you can find me in a t-shirt and jeans working at my dining room table sipping on a warm cup of Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice tea with my puppy at my feet chewing on something he shouldn’t and my cat napping in the chair next to me. I am a mom to two hilarious teenage daughters, Haley & Shayna, & a cat mom to Faith. I am a life & health coach, a writer, a photographer, an oversharer, and a lover of Jesus. I am mostly known for wearing my heart on my sleeve and not being much of a planner (it drives my mom kind of crazy). I love to go on spontaneous day trips through the mountains, hikes with my girls, play board games, and sit at Starbucks late at night laughing with friends. I’m obsessed with pizza and tacos, the healing power of essential oils, afternoon naps, dad jokes, and cheesy young adult dystopian love stories. People often refer to me as faithful, funny, and caring. I love serving the world by sharing my story with others so that they know that they aren’t alone in their struggles, making people laugh, loving people unconditionally, and meeting them right where they are. The things I am most passionate about in life are my relationship with Jesus, raising my ceiling as high as it can go so that my daughters’ floor is so high that they’ll be able to soar in life, and helping others find the same freedoms I have found in life, health, and faith.
I have struggled with my health, self-worth, and shame for many years. I’ve been there and I get it. I believe that to be healthy we really need to look at all aspects of health – physical, mental, and spiritual. “They” say that you are what you eat – and that isn’t just about the food we put in our mouths. It is also who we spend time with, where we work, our spiritual life, our job…and so much more. This is why I am both a life and a health coach – because until I got my life in order, my body wouldn’t heal…and until I started eating nourishing foods, I couldn’t get my life in order. They go hand in hand. Friend, I’m still not at my goal weight but after years of trying every diet under the sun, I have found an effective way to lose weight and I’ve lost over fifty pounds! The secret? There is no magic pill or magic diet and it takes more than just changing the food or the amount of food on your plate. After forty-five years, I’ve finally gotten to a place of self-acceptance, self-love, and most importantly, I have accepted what God says about me; I am fearfully and wonderfully made…and so are you.
After many years of struggling with emotional eating, physical health, feeling stuck, and feeling like my doctors weren’t listening to me, I took my health into my own hands, empowered myself with knowledge, and found simple ways to live non-toxic, natural living on a budget, which helped me get to a place where I could truly begin the healing process from the inside out. When I found joy in spite of my circumstances, and peace beyond understanding, helping others find the same freedoms quickly became a passion for me. Healing from past trauma wasn’t always easy but it was worth the hard work.
The most fulfilling moments in my life & work have always been those in which I have helped someone. As a holistic life & nutrition health coach, my goal is to improve women’s lives through lifestyle changes, mindfulness, and mind & body nutrition. Nourishing the whole self through food, self-care, and spirituality. I specialize in helping those who feel stuck in their health and faith get unstuck, I also have experience with autoimmunity and gut issues. During your free health discovery session, we will dive into what your health and wellness goals are first to see if we’re a good fit for each other.
Whether you desire weight loss, have a goal you need help crushing, have a diagnosis that requires big changes, need someone who truly believes in you, or you just feel stuck and you just don’t know why, I can help you with a personalized, holistic approach focusing on nourishing yourself through food, self-care, and faith. I will teach you how to change habits, create meals for gut healing, and reduce symptoms so that you can get unstuck and thrive!
