I am an Integrative Holistic Health Coach. I live in Austin, TX and although there are many innovative approaches accepted in regards to health in my city, a health coach can still be confusing. My journey as a health coach started years ago when I discovered the realities about health in America.
Since my mother’s diagnosis with Multiple Sclerosis when I was 12 years old, I have always had an interest in health. I watched a disease and more diseases take my mom from me and my family. I was always touched by her endurance and hope as she suffered, but I was never satisfied with the results or explanations around her many diagnosed illnesses and kept looking for better answers.
With a business degree and a heart for health, I set out for nursing school and life in another country to help others at the age of 22. My journey led me other places and I found myself married, with a young child and one on the way as I witnessed my mother take her last breath. Multiple sclerosis, depression and cancer claimed my mom’s life and left me in a dust of confusion.
Over the next few years, with the help of my husband, the gospel truth and many friends, I began to walk my own health journey towards healing. My dear friend, Wendi Combes, also went through a transformation as a Nurse and I am so thankful to the clarity she has helped me with throughout my journey.
Fast forward many years and 4 kids later. I was not only navigating health for my own life, but for the lives of others. I began to read about the health stats for my kid’s generations.
Not only were diseases a statistic before they would get out of school, they were not even estimated to outlive me. I was not okay with these stats. A new passion was birthed in me and I had to do something.
Over the next few years I would be trained, certified and become passionate about helping others. My longings had come full circle from since I was a child.
Today, I get to do what I was made to do each and every day. I help empower women to integrate healthy living into their everyday lives. And I get to help them accomplish this in simple changes over time.
With a nursing background as well as training in homeopathy and other holistic approaches to wellness, I can help women integrate the right tools in their lives to help them achieve their desired transformation.
I help women look at their whole health in regards to their mind, body and soul. You can not reduce a health problem to one factor but rather one must acknowledge that the body is made up of emotional, physical, mental and spiritual aspects that collectively work together. I help define a woman’s health in conjunction with their own biological make up and help give them tools to reach transformational success.
My current certification is from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York. I also volunteer with ongoing training through the Institute for Functional Medicine for continued learning in the ever changing world of nutrition. I continue to build relationships with Medical and holistic practitioners here in Austin, TX and am so thankful for the wealth of knowledge from many experts that help to shape and give support for my clients.
