I’ve always been an educator. Originally from the States, I taught writing at the University of Oregon and Oregon State University before earning a Fulbright Fellowship which took me to Paris, France. A series of premature, preventable deaths in my family led me to shift gears and learn more about non-medical, evidence-based strategies to improve mental, emotional and physical well-being. As a life and health coach, I can help adults get beyond emotional and physical pain through diet, mindset and lifestyle change using a dynamic 3-step approach. My coaching philosophy and practice focus on the integration of Awareness, Reflection & Choice: The ARC to Wellness.
