I hold the belief that everyone should take time for self care. My commitment is to work with you as your needs change from session to session. Personally, I'm dedicated to a healthy lifestyle including daily exercise and preparing clean and nutritious foods for my family. I was a personal and group fitness instructor for over 10 years, have managed health food stores and have led boot camps for expecting mothers.
With three daughters, I was motivated to create an after-school health and fitness program. I teamed up with a dietitian and we began teaching healthy food habits and providing exercise routines for children. In my own home, my middle daughter has Celiac Disease, an auto-immune disorder where one has an intolerance to even trace amounts of gluten. I too eat gluten-free and am predominantly vegetarian.
I have first hand experience dealing with physical and mental aspects of aches and pains. I grew up as a competitive figure-skater through my early teens before transitioning to volleyball, where I played at high school and collegiate levels. As a result, I have dealt with physical health challenges. I'm still working through these issues - from lower spine trauma and concussions from hitting the ice, to cervical and repetitive motion issues as a setter in volleyball.
On a very personal level, I was widowed at the age of 34. At that time our daughters were 2, 4, and 6. I understand grief, I understand NOT understanding death. I understand high pressured professions and less-than-ideal physical limitations.
I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals with the same passion and dedication I have towards my own body and that of my children and loved ones.
