As a health, hormone & nutrition educator for mothers & daughters, I really only care about one thing:
Empowering WOMEN & TWEEN and TEEN GIRLS to reach their highest, brightest, most exquisite potential — and take on the world!
Every time I launch a new seasonal cleanse, or refine a new whole-body wellness system,
or hit ‘publish’ on a new blog post, I like to think that I’m inspiring a new generation of women to nourish & care for their bodies like the world depends on it.
Because frankly — it does.
And we need courageous wellness role models more than ever.
My burn-out backstory —
or, why I have so many letters after name.
Picture a young mom with a preschooler in her lap & a bun in the oven, collapsed & sobbing on the floor of an airport terminal — depleted to the core. Unable to stand. Unwilling to move.
Yeah. That was me.
10 years of hyper-demanding work as an elite Physical Therapist & women’s health educator, 5 major moves with a husband who traveled full-time, an intense pregnancy & then a baby girl who seemed to believe that sleep was a non-necessity had fried my adrenal glands — and brought me to my knees. Or more accurately, my butt.
I embarked on a major health quest, determined to get to the root of my overwhelming fatigue. Most doctors tried to put me on antidepressants, or suggested warm baths & naps (gee, really? ) It wasn’t until one thoughtful doctor tested my adrenals that we found the real culprit — my hormones were completely haywire. And my body was in crisis mode.
My inner science geek pushed up her spectacles, and the next 3 years became a whirl of hormone research, laboratory adventures & professional certifications.
I got certified as health coach by the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, and poured myself
into additional training at Duke University’s Integrative Medicine Program. I’m currently a doctoral student in Hawthorn University’s Holistic Nutrition Program — and honestly, I don’t think my quest for health & wellness knowledge will ever be complete.
My two daughters serve as my daily inspiration — and there’s no doubt in my mind that being a mom has anchored my business focus on a very special super-duo: mothers & daughters.
Today, I blend hard science with soft wisdom — helping women & girls navigate messy hormonal transitions, reach & sustain their ideal weights, and unleash their unbridled potential.
My signature coaching programs — The POWERFUL Programs (for Women & Girls) — represent the sum total of my prowess as a hormone specialist, fitness geek, physiology educator & nutrition expert.
I will NEVER get tired of watching women and girls become confident authorities on their own bodies & lives — and boldly grab life by the ovaries.
