• We were each created individually and for perfect health
• Our bodies are doing exactly what they were created to do
• The body has the ability to heal itself under the right circumstances
• Your beliefs have the ability to keep you stuck and to help you heal.
• There is no one diet that works for everyone
• Food can change everything
• What you want is on the other side of fear, obedience, and consistency
• There are primary foods and secondary foods. Primary foods nourish our soul, secondary foods nourish our body.
I offer transformative coaching for driven women who want to connect the dots between their calling, their faith, and their health.
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 cat napping in the chair next to me. I am a mom to two hilarious daughters, Haley & Shayna, & a cat mom to Faith. I am a Christian women’s 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, 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 am a work in progress. 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, what we read, …and so much more. This is why I am holistic 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 that there was so much more going on in my body, and every time I dieted or shamed myself, or deprived myself I was actually making the problem worse! I was an all-or-nothing dieter. I was either 100% all in or 100% crashing, burning, and gaining all of the weight I had lost before back again.
Do you want to know the secret to health? Thin does not equal healthy. There is no magic pill or magic diet and it takes more than just changing the foods you eat, moving more, or the amount of food on your plate. After forty-eight years, I’ve finally gotten to a place of self-acceptance, and 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, helping my children overcome past trauma, and learning to live with three autoimmune diseases and a chronic illness (Epstein Barr Virus), 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 and 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, gluten-free living, and gut issues. During your free consultation call, we will dive into what your top goals are and we’ll 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!
