Former high tech executive taking my life in a different direction to follow my lifelong passions for nutrition and healthy lifestyles. My early endeavors in this space included getting a certificate in hypnotherapy in 1991. Then in 2001, I studied acupressure, which I found fascinating. In the mid-2000's, I studied and received a masters of medical qigong certificate, which included two trips to China to study with the Dao masters at the Southern and Northern Daoist Monasteries.
Searching for a formal education in the field, I earned a certificate in plant-based diets from T. Colin Campbell Foundation's eCornell program, which helped me identify a specific study area that grabbed my soul and said here you are! In 2017, I completed a certificate program through the Institute for Functional Medicine's Coaching Academy and am now a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach. In 2018 I graduated from Arizona State University with a bachelors in Interdisciplinary Studies with concentrations in Healthy Nutrition and Wellness Foundations. In case you couldn't tell, I'm always learning and growing.
My education is blending equally well with my background in business, technology, and managing people as I helped them grow as people and in their careers to be the best version of themselves, I can definitely relate to everyday stressors and how to cope.
