More About Me

About Me

I have been working in the health and wellness field in various roles since 2003. My areas of focus have been smoking cessation, healthy weight loss, and nutrition. I myself have the experience of making all of those kinds of lifestyle changes and I believe that part of my purpose in life is to empower others to make healthy changes as well. Currently, I am employed at Kaiser Permanente Northern CA as a wellness coach servings their members. I am also a mother to two exuberant boys and two little doggies, an avid gardener and hiker, and a lover of the Great Outdoors.

Trainer Statement

Before I started working as a wellness coach, I was a clinical nutritionist. I became a nutritionist because I learned about how intricately connected our own human health is to that of our planet's and I really wanted to be able to broadly influence positive changes on all fronts. What I realized in my practice was that education alone wasn't always enough to spark change. What I learn on a daily basis now when practicing MI as a health coach,  is that by helping people to connect to their own values and align their actions with what they believe to be the most important things in their lives, creative pathways towards change open up. Furthermore, MI breaks away from the paradigm of teacher/student, master/apprentice, expert/layperson. The practice of MI allows for true human connection which can then lead to healing from a place of empowerment rather than dependence. These kinds of shifts are what I believe will truly lead to global healing. And that is why I would be honored to be able to teach the practice of MI to others, especially to those stepping into the role of healers.
