Why I'm Passionate About Your Health
Living healthy doesn't have to be hard.
Why is maintaining a healthy lifestyle so hard? It doesn’t have to be when you work with a certified professional who can help you develop a healthy lifestyle that is sustainable and affordable? As your coach, I work with you to develop a customized program. I provide supportive accountability that will enable you to set and achieve doable, long-lasting lifestyle changes.
At the too young age of 62, my mother suffered a life-altering stroke, which resulted from a lethal combination of poor diet and uncontrolled stress. It left her completely incapacitated. The stroke also altered my life as I was instantly thrust into the caregiver and medical advocate's role and had to learn how to navigate America’s health care maze quickly.
Much to my dismay, I soon found out first hand that the current health care system was centered around treating symptoms by performing invasive procedures and prescribing a myriad of harsh pharmaceuticals. There was little, if any, emphasis on “authentic” nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices. This tragedy ignited my passion for educating and empowering my clients to take charge of their health through authentic nutrition and sustainable lifestyle changes.
I hold a B.A. from Howard University in Washington, D.C. I received my health coaching certification from The Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York. My life coaching certification from the Orange County Life Coaching Institute completed a culinary program in New Orleans.
