I have always been interested in healthy eating and exercise, and I love that lifestyle coaching allows me to use this knowledge to help people transform their lives. As a coach, I emphasize consistency rather than perfection, and understand the value of taking one day at a time and building on it. Ten years ago, my husband and I set off on a nine month sailing trip. When we first entertained the idea of doing this, I did not know how to sail and had only been on a sailboat a handful of times. In the year building up to our trip, I took sailing courses, read lots of books to learn about others’ experiences and took time to plan ahead. I had to step out of my comfort zone and trust in my ability to accomplish something new. What got me through the initial days after we set sail was to focus on one day at a time. This experience is not only something that I will never forget, but also something that I can offer to others. I am proud that I was able to set aside my fears and believe in myself. I love helping people work through their own road-blocks, and encouraging them to work through challenges one day at a time. While I love learning about nutrition, in my spare time I also love to travel, garden and cook.
