“My professional compass was bouncing back and forth. I was afforded no clear vision forward. My career teaching science and gifted ed. was rewarding yet I still felt I was not yet completely aligned with my true purpose. I had a yearning to do something different, something that would allow me to use talents and desires that I felt strongly about. I found Health Coaching and the divergent, rewarding journey began.
Once discovered, I researched health coaching in depth. I recognized how different health coaching was from other coaching forms and began to understand how impactful health coaching could be for anyone.
Do you know that feeling when you discover something that excites you from the inside out? I became very excited! I set my sites on attending Duke Integrative Medicine’s Health Coaching program.
I felt going to Duke was the best option to gain education and certification in Integrative Health and Wellness Coaching. I did so in 2016 and in September of 2017 became among the 1st in the nation to become Nationally Board Certified by the National Board of Medical Examiners as they held the very first national boards. I felt like a pioneer, standing shoulder to shoulder with other like minded pioneers with a passion to help people in a powerful way.
I have since coached clients on many issues ranging from diet, exercise, stress management, seeking out alternative therapies, smoking cessation, sleep issues, organizational issues, help in understanding medical diagnosis as well as a wide range of other health goals. I helped clients clarify their goals and create their map!
I love what I have chosen to do. I am passionate about helping people live a life they want and love, happy and healthily.”
