My Story

My coaching journey started with a loved one falling and breaking their back. Everyone told me there was no way they would survive. I refused to believe the hopeless situation and stepped up to provide encouragement and motivation. During their recovery to full mobility, I realized that senior health and wellness is an increasing societal concern. A significant fall often triggers a long road of hospitalizations and rehabilitation. Falling is scary by itself; imagine not having anyone to help you up or hear your cries for assistance. My family member's experience made me aware of the need for expanded attention to health & wellness in the aging community. Health coaching for adults 55+ is client-driven and builds on strengths, values, and goals to improve overall health and reduce the stress often attributed to cognitive decline and early dementia. Most importantly, it places the client in the best condition to thrive!

“There is a fountain of youth: It is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age”

– Sophia Loren

Mission-Focused

My goal is to empower clients to become the best version of themself. I seek to encourage and motivate others to achieve their health and wellness goals. As active participants in their life-story, change is possible. Through a healthy cooperative partnership, clients tap into their hidden potential. Their success is their self-doing as they realize a healthy and happy vision for their future. Coaching is client-driven and centered on self-efficacy. Essentially, they chart the course, and I serve as their compass in whatever direction they seek.
