I founded the company Your Path to You Health & Wellness Coaching with the goal of empowering clients to take ownership of their health, prevent disease and live longer, more joyful lives. Through my coaching, I espouse the importance of quality nutrition, exercise, mindfulness, and connectedness with nature, self, and others. As a nurse with high ethical standards, I promise strict confidentiality, respect, and acceptance without judgment. Allow me to help guide you on your path to take charge of your health and life!
For over 30 years I have taken care of many patients in a wide variety of settings – from hospitals on medical, surgical and psychiatric units to medical offices, schools and patient homes. I worked for many years as a visiting nurse, supervisor of oncology research and a sales representative for Pfizer. Throughout my career I found many patients overwhelmed, often on multiple medications, forced to treat their acute illness but not effectively managing or preventing chronic illness. By teaching them to be proactive and implement changes in their daily routines we created powerful, positive changes in their health and lives. Wellness promotion became front and center in my nursing care.
Independent Health Coach, Take Shape For Life
After devoting myself fully to caring for others, there came a point when I realized I was no longer taking care of myself optimally. With a strong family history of cardiac disease, I knew it was imperative that I be proactive and mitigate my own risk. While I was moderately successful at losing weight on my own, I could not shed my unhealthy visceral belly fat. I discovered Take Shape For Life and my health coach, which was the catalyst I needed to lose the weight, establish daily habits of health, and transform my life. I can be your catalyst, whether your desire is weight loss, creating healthy lifestyle behavioral changes, or to become a health coach like me. I will educate, inspire, support, and train you. Join me!
Holistic Nurse/Integrative Nurse Coach
My mission is to guide clients to make more informed, conscious lifestyle choices that create greater wellness in their lives and to embrace the power they have to prevent and reverse disease. Because I believe strongly in a whole person model of care that addresses the body, mind, spiritual, cultural, nutritional and environmental aspects that impact one’s health and well being, I became Board Certified as a Holistic Nurse and Advanced Integrative Nurse Coach. I share my expertise as Associate Faculty of the International Nurse Coach Association where I enjoy mentoring other nurses, and am certified in Reiki, Meditation and Stress Management.
