Along with being a Certified Health Coach, I am a wife, mom and grandmother of one beautiful grandson. I have had a passion for health and wellness for as long as I can remember, and today I spend my free time strength training, exercising, working in my yard, growing my own vegetable garden and cooking – and love capturing all those treasures through photography. I have lived in south Louisiana all my life and, although faced with the everyday temptations of our incredible southern cuisine, I thought my “once in a while” and all the “healthy” routines I was doing was enough. I thought I was doing everything right, and I was wrong. I encountered a challenge when I received some numbers back that I didn’t like very much. The report sent me on a mission to find what it was I was missing from my “healthy” lifestyle. I have a paralegal background and love to research so I spent countless hours attempting to find a solution. What I found was Dr. Sears and the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute. I bought some of his books, read and applied the information that addressed my issues, and literally turned my numbers around – by letting food be my medicine and making a few lifestyle changes. I furthered my education to earn my certification as a Health Coach and started sharing the information I learned to help those I love with the health challenges they were facing. I feel so blessed to have taken my passion for helping others and my love for health and wellness to the next level through being a Certified Health Coach. I love the feeling of responsibility to share with others the knowledge that has been entrusted to me and helping others attain optimal health for the challenges they face.
