How long have I been doing this? How did I become an Empowerment & Transformation Health Coach? Essentially, how did I get here now?
To answer this question, it’s probably best that I share with you the defining moment that brought me to where I am today – coaching people like you. Professional women burning the candle at both ends. Teaching women how & what to do to feel alive again, return to your kick-butt productive self, and rekindle the relationships that matter most in your life.
In 2014 I was miserable in my latest job as a clinical pharmacist. I was cut off from helping people directly, and instead was isolated in a windowless room where I took orders from doctors and nurses that seemed to hate their job just as much as I did. I had recently left the hustle and bustle of a job I loved where I made a difference on a daily basis. I had been working as a respected clinical pharmacist specialist in the emergency room of a large hospital. Every day I had been helping patients one-on-one to be empowered in their healing -- knowing how to use their medications to manage and overcome their health challenges.
In this new job, I suddenly felt like I didn't have a voice anymore. I was cut off from having a personal impact on lives or helping people heal without the crutch of pills and doctors. All I wanted to do was give people real information and tools that empower their lives.
I was miserable - and knew I had to find other ways, outside of these rules and regulations, to help people solve their biggest health challenges. I was so miserable, it even scared my boyfriend, who saw the light go out of my eyes and wondered how to make me better. I know first hand how health scares and stress can hurt even the best of relationships. Helping other people know about alternatives to western medicine in order to be the healthiest they can be is personal to me. You see, I've been where you are.
In 2003, at the age of 23, I was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. My doctor told me I could do one of two things: take a pill forever everyday or get my stress under control on my own. I chose to learn new skills to mitigate my disease -- instead of the pill.
Over the years I have struggled with migraines, chronic allergies and sinus infections, and panic attacks from a very young age. I tried a myriad of doctors, pharmaceuticals, chiropractors, and learned even more about alternative medicine. Because the medications never eliminated the problem. They were just a band aid to an ever growing list of problems.
Through my own research, trial and error, and divine guidance, I have eliminated all of the above mentioned ailments. Your doctors won't tell you about these solutions -- because they don't know. And they will never take the time to learn how these problems are impacting relationships that are most important to you - that you either have or want!
Now, as an empowerment & transformation specialist, I help people uncover the source of their diseases, sickness and exhaustion to get to the root of where things start. They are often surprised that the root problem could be the stress (for better or worse!) of a relationship, a job, the food they are eating or nutrition they are missing.
I give them the tools they need to know to help reduce or in some cases, potentially, even stop their prescription medications (with the help of their doctor, of course). But the biggest benefit my clients tell me about is that they fall in love again - with their lives, with what they are doing, and the person or people that mean the most to them.
I cleaned up my diet and mindset and started teaching professional, working women in their 30's and 40's how to turn around their exhaustion, feel great in their bodies again, and take back control of their health. I watch their inflammation, depression, anxiety and so many other symptoms resolve too!
I have since made a commitment to dedicate the rest of my professional life to helping professional working women in their 30s and 40's do the same - breakthrough their inner blocks, take control of their health, feel great in their bodies, and enjoy the relationships they want in their lives. This gives them a FREEDOM to create the life, career and relationships they've always dreamed of!
I now work with many private clients and speak in front of countless groups about my passion of self healing. I travel in the winter months with the man of my dreams to Alaska, Canada and Europe while earning an income, working with clients, and have created the Vibrant & Lovin Life in 90 Days System™, a series of 6 important inner and outer exhaustion recovery steps every professional woman in her 30's and 40's needs to apply to have all the energy they want to enjoy a healthy, vibrant life and career, the relationship of their dreams and sky rocket her results in record time. The 6 step system is combined with a restorative digestive regimen to give both your body and soul the fresh start it needs to begin to heal.
Who are your clients?
I work with people just like you who are tired of going from doctor to doctor just to be told “it’s all in your head”, who are tired of feeling run down, fat, bloated, frustrated, frazzled and without direction or purpose. I work with women who are ready to:
• Find happiness
• Reconnect with your passions
• Connect with your intuition
• Create deep meaning and intimacy in your personal relationships
• Lose weight quickly and easily – just by making smart choices (instead of depriving yourself)
• Ditch old habits that don’t serve you anymore
• Kick those quick fixes with zero results to the curb
• Stop buying book after book, doing diet after diet, and still not experiencing the changes you desire
• Uncover more happiness, more energy, and a feeling of total balance throughout the day
• Live a life free from confusion about what to eat
• Feel completely in control of your body and mind
• Watch your fabulous life unfold easily without force
What makes you different from other health coaches?
I specialize in helping you recover from exhaustion in a multidimensional way. I work on the inner and outer principals of health and wellness from an organic and spiritual perspective. What that means to you is, that you get a wise-sage-meets-kick-butt authentic health coach. I am a clinical pharmacist, which means I have western medicine knowledge and training. But, I am also very spiritual and I don’t pretend to hide it. I practice, and am master trained, in both Usui and Angelic Reiki, and I incorporate reiki into your coaching plan. Because I’m not delicate, you’ll always get a straight to the point quick and honest response from me.
I’m concerned with how to get your diet clean, your energy up, your relationships connected and meaningful, and taking action on your goals. You may not like what I have to tell you – but you can be sure I will always tell you the truth. The truth about what’s standing in the way of your happiness, growth, and health, and how to get rid of it FAST so you can start getting results in record time (and I throw in a healthy dose of humor and inspiration, which always helps!).
What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?
The Vibrant & Lovin’ Life in 90 Days System™ was created for people who are absolutely excited and dead serious about breaking out of their rut, breaking through resistance, and cleaning up their mind, body, and soul– it means not running around all day long, beating yourself up anymore saying: “I should be way more productive! What is going on in my life?!” They were created for you to put systems in place within a few months (sometimes weeks!), which will eventually lead you to having big breakthroughs and a-ha moments, healing your body, and eliminating your stress, so you can have the FREEDOM to create the life, career and relationships you’ve always dreamed of!
Being a motivated go-getter myself, I’m known to work best with others that are motivated and driven, people who are committed to their success no matter what. People who are super-ready to get going, and just want to know exactly what steps to take to restore passion and energy to their lives. My clients often tell me – “just tell me what to do and I’ll do it!” Consider what you’ll do with me to be a high-octane crash course on everything you need to know to re-energize your life. You will be expected to take serious and consistent action. No excuses anymore, just a very different way of thinking and full support while you achieve this incredibly exciting goal: a vibrant, joy infused daily life.
For what type of professionals are your programs NOT going to work?
Please know I’m very selective in who I work with and I cherry-pick my clients, choosing to (gently) turn away people who aren’t suited for my programs and won’t get the results for which they would have signed up for. (It wouldn’t be fair to them.) The Vibrant & Lovin’ Life in 90 Days System™ programs are NOT for those who have no money coming in and are absolutely, financially desperate, at least not right away. It’s been my experience that people in financial crisis do not trust the recommendations I give them and do not do the work (probably because they spend so much time worrying about where they are going to get next month’s rent check or mortgage payment.) If you fall within this category, it’s absolutely OK. We’ve all been in times of financial crisis at one point or another. Do yourself these favors:
1. Get some money coming in with a full-time or part-time job at the very least, and then call me. This will take the edge off and provide a little more peace of mind. Mostly, it will de-clutter your mind enough to focus on your Vibrant & Lovin Life in 90 Days System™ assignments and the BIG picture.
2. Sign up for the free Facebook group “From Exhausted to Vibrant & Lovin’ Life.” The free information will get you started towards your goals until you’re ready to work with me one-on-one.
Doing these things will really help you get primed for our work. When you’re ready, call me and we’ll get you started. (I’m in no rush and will be here when you need me.)
Other types of personalities I won’t work with (without exception) are the whiner or the chronic skeptic, as well as individuals who consistently make excuses for not getting their assignments done or challenging every aspect of the program. If you are one of these people, I gently and respectfully ask that you not call and I hope you understand why. We’ll probably just not work well together and I wouldn’t want you to waste your time or money. Is that fair?
What exactly is your Vibrancy & Lovin’ Life in 90 Days ™ system and what does it include?
Vibrancy & Lovin’ Life begins with understanding where you are right now, where your power really comes from, how to create the life you want, and creating powerful intentions that get you results. Here’s what the System gets you to do:
1. Know Where You Are RIGHT NOW
Together we review the “Circle of Life” (12 areas) & evaluate the role of food & nutrition in your world. How does it all fit together and impact each other?
2. Clarity/Set Your Intentions
We get CRYSTAL clear about your intentions, what you want to experience in your life. Before you can manifest what you want you have to KNOW what you want. You’ll learn the difference between setting goals and intentions, and the biggest mistakes people make when trying to apply the law of attraction.
3. Get Real About What’s Holding You Back
Shine the light onto your darkness. Tune in to your intuition, connect with your Guides & Angels. Find the blocks and barriers to what is holding you back. Look closely at your resistance, fear and shame that keeps you stuck in the dark. Acknowledge it. Share it. Offer it up to Source for clearing.
4. Release Your Inner Resistance
More energy work yay! You might already know what you need to be doing, but yet are still struggling in procrastination, feeling stuck and spinning in circles. You’ll be learning proven techniques for breaking through your inner resistance, self doubt, fear, anxiety and all of that “stuff” that keep you playing small so that you can begin taking action. Oh yeah, AND the F-word! FORGIVENESS!
5. Rewire Your Thinking
Meditations, visualizations, affirmations, and more tools to help you ingrain a positive, productive, loving mindset.
6. Make Action Plans & Take Action! no explanation needed.
The 6 step system is combined with a restorative digestive regimen to give both your body and soul the fresh start it needs to begin to heal.
Does this really work?
Yes! The result of our work is an approach to shifting your mindset and cleaning the toxins out of your diet, mind, and lifestyle, so that with time you can restore your body to it’s vibrant state of glowing health. (See Testimonials)

Can I contact some of your former clients to see what it’s like to work with you?
Yes, I encourage you to! Please go to the Testimonials page and read all of them. See which ones you feel drawn to, either because the person has gotten the results you want to get too, or perhaps because that person is in a similar situation. Then feel free to email or call them and ask what they got from working with me and my programs.
How quickly can I expect results?
That depends on how quickly you can make those inner shifts. Some clients are ready to go and start to implement and see changes in a very short time frame, while others have a bit more work to do first. It also depends on where you are when we start working together, how willing you are to make change and take action, and take responsibility for yourself and your actions.
How can I guarantee myself that I will get more energy, health and happiness in record time?
Do all of your homework. Be totally committed to your success. Understand that this is a process, a proven one, that works if you take action and implement all of the steps. All my clients who have diligently applied every step of the 90 day system have successfully regained their energy and vibrancy, in much less time than they would have on their own AND have changed how they approach stress in their lives, which dramatically alters you quality of life.
