I am a National Board-Certified Health and Wellness Coach, as well as a certified FDN-Practitioner and a Functional Medicine-Certified Health Coach. I recently published my first book. "Kiss Your Bloat Goodbye" and own a health coaching practice, Balance Wellness Centers, located in Elmhurst, IL. Prior to transitioning to health coaching, I was a personal trainer and Crossfit coach. Over the last four years, helping people to identify the true root cause of their condition has become my passion. I discovered Functional Medicine on my quest to heal myself after an autoimmune diagnosis and a lack of guidance from Western Medicine. I know how frustrating it can be to sift through all of the information out there looking for answers without a support system. I work with my clients to help them understand the relationship between their symptoms and the root cause to empower them to take control of their health.
I use a 5-progned approach to health and wellness, Planting S.E.E.D.S. for Change, which I have developed over the last year and a half. The approach is designed to educate my clients as to WHY they feel the way they do and empower them to reclaim their health through my online and in person coaching programs. I am excited to share my knowledge and experience with you so that you can start to understand how things like diet, lifestyle, and stress are playing a major role in your current health status.
My main areas of focus are gut health, diet, hormone imbalance, and mental and emotional health and well being.
Thank you for stopping by and please let me know how I can help!
