Specialties Women’s health, diabetes, heart health, professional coaching certification About Me Much of how I approach people in encouraging lifestyle change stems from my experience with and love of hiking. At the start of each hike, the journey always seems insurmountable. The only way to get started is to take one step at a time, accepting that there will be times when I feel like heading back down and calling it a day; and times when I need to stop, breathe, and just ask for help. It’s during those times I find it especially helpful to tell myself to “try one more step” – and lo and behold, I can continue! When working with individuals, I always try to be compassionate and empathetic, as well as inspirational and logical. I help people identify their personal goals and take great satisfaction when a person’s health improves and when they feel a difference. On any given hike, like any road to a lifestyle change, support and encouragement can be all someone needs to keep going. I always encourage individuals to go at their own pace and take it slowly; in the end they will realize that if they try, they can succeed! In addition to hiking, I also love gardening and making my family’s recipes lighter and healthier. Fun Fact I survived Hurricane Gilbert while on Cozumel, 175 mile winds, when all sand was blown off the island. Hopefully I have eight lives left of my nine! Inspirational Quote "Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin." – Mother Teresa
