Certified Health Coach
I grew up in Grand Forks, North Dakota with a single mom and an older brother. At age fifteen, I frequently babysat a girl with Down syndrome which sparked my love for people with disabilities. In college, my work with disabilities continued at group homes and schools. This lead me to an amazing twenty-two year career managing health, fitness and recreation programs for people with disabilities.
As kids, we were very active and played many sports. During my senior year of high school, I worked at a fast-food restaurant and for the first time in my life, I didn’t play sports. After a few months of eating fast food and getting less activity, I gained twenty pounds. One day, a customer made a comment about my tight pants. I was so embarrassed that I immediately went on an extreme diet and exercise routine losing twenty pounds in one month! That was the start of my five-year intermittent battle with eating disorders.
Throughout this time, I was also in a bad rollover car accident and then an unhealthy relationship. At this point, you could say, I hit rock bottom. Even while struggling with some depression, I had a strong desire to cure myself. I read books on eating disorders and learned to manage my emotions, my nutrition and my insecurities. I also found the courage to end the unhealthy relationship and discovered that self-love must always come first!
In my mid-thirties, I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. My thyroid was extremely out of control throughout my first pregnancy causing sleepless nights, racing heart and anxiety. Later, my thyroid was stabilized with more medication. After my second pregnancy, I was prescribed a long-term medication and I broke out in hives. My doctor said the medication wasn’t causing the hives and prescribed many allergy pills to deal with it. After a month of taking more pills, I decided this wasn’t how I wanted to live.
I took control of my own health without medication and a few weeks later, the hives disappeared. With the help of books and research, I changed my mindset, improved my diet, exercised consistently and this decision was life changing. My thyroid has been under control for fifteen years through proper Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude and Nutrition! Eventually, this lead me to becoming a Certified Health Coach through the Dr. William Sears Wellness Institute.
My strong desire and passion for personal growth, health, fitness, nutrition and empowerment has helped me overcome many obstacles! I thrive on empowering other women and people with disabilities to put themselves first so they too, can enjoy the benefits of living their happiest, healthiest and most fulfilling lives! Putting yourself first is not selfish, it’s the only way to be your best for everyone else.
