I am a Certified Holistic Health Coach, Nutritionist, Reiki Master, Essential Oils Advocate, Spiritual Alchemist, wife to a patient and loyal husband, mom of two beautiful boys, and your guide to The HERA (healthy, empowered, radiant, abundant) Life!
What I teach is a way of life – one that I live every day. It’s been a long journey here to a place where I have more peace than not, more joy than not, more confidence than not, more gratitude than ever. And I am here to help guide you to this same place. To show you how to nourish your soul on a diet of joy, remind you how to play, my gentle prompts reigniting your passions like tiny sparks landing on dry wood.
I’m a permission-granter, re-framer, and soul artist, turning negatives into positives, uncovering the deeper meaning to everything, learning to let go and surrender to the synchronistic events that occur in our lives to keep us moving in the direction of our higher learning for our highest good.
I use many tools to accomplish this and I’m on a mission to share them with as many women as I can. Because every woman should feel this good in their lives.
I’ve always been rather deep, soulful, finding ways to feel better when dealing with crappy situations even at a very early age. I’ve always known it was part of my calling to figure out how to get through something and then share it with others….sort of like figuring out which planks to step on to safely cross a rickety bridge over a valley of death and then reaching a hand back to take someone else safely across.
When I was suffering from an eating/body image disorder in my teens and early 20’s, I took a food science class in college and fell in love with the truth about nutrition that set me free. I switched my major and graduated with full intention to teach others how to eat and properly manage their bodies and achieve their weight goals. After a few years, it was clear to me there was more to health and nutrition than what was on a plate or a food label. I was missing some important tools to help heal the emotional and metaphysical issues that impact one’s health, but I didn’t know this then. I only knew that people can be told what to eat and why, but that doesn’t mean they will do it.
Almost a decade later, I found myself recovering from a motorcycle accident in a marriage (my second) that was on the rocks, on leave from a passionless job, not knowing who I was or what I believed in….when a new friend suggested a book for me to read and an audio program to listen to that changed my life forever. Anatomy of the Spirit by Caroline Myss and There’s a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem by Dr. Wayne Dyer provided me answers to questions I didn’t even know I had. I resonated deeply with what they shared and was awakened to a new understanding about life and my role in it. I’ve been on a quest to deepen this understanding and explore all spiritual theories and methods for health ever since.
My greatest joy is learning new ideas and methods to feeling better and living healthier, more vibrant lives and trying it out for myself. If it works, I share it. If it doesn’t, I share that too. Because I hate to waste time and money – and I figure you do, too.
I’m listing my credentials below for those of you who care to know. My greatest credential is my life experience, the stories of which I weave into my work and write about on my blog. I hope you’ll take the time to check it out.
