“Do one thing that scares you everyday.” — Eleanor Roosevelt.
I have this on my mirror and read it everyday. Let’s be real. I am not a doctor, I leave that to my brother and Dr. Sears. I don’t have a degree in kinesiology or exercise science, nor do I have a long list of credentials and certifications.
However, I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and experiences of exercise and nutrition as I come from a family where no importance was placed on being healthy. Obesity, heart disease, stroke, Type I (Juvenile) and Type II diabetes run in my family. My mother passed away from a massive stroke eight years after suffering a heart attack. She did not alter or change her lifestyle, exercise, attitude or nutrition; therefore she left us at the age of 74 — in her prime time years.
I chose to become a Dr. Sears Certified Health Coach as all of the information is scientifically proven, clinically-based solutions from a world-renowned doctor, William Sears, MD. We all have choices, and you are here because you are looking to make an impactful life change. I want to partner and bring solutions that will assist you in making positive lifestyle changes for you and your families.
Here is a little information about me personally. I have lived in North Carolina for 15 years, yet I’m an avid Kentucky fan (or some might say an obnoxious one). I have been a fitness instructor/trainer for the past 14 years. Why did I become one? Honestly, I didn’t want to pay for a gym membership. I became certified and was paid for working out. I am a single mom of my sweet 11-year-old, four-legged Yorkie, Lucy. My favorite pastime is reading in my beautiful backyard with Lucy in my lap.
