I'm an independent OPTAVIA Coach™

here is my story

I am often asked what made me become a Certified Health Coach with Take Shape For Life. When I was 12 my mother was diagnosed with a chronic kidney disease that required 18 years of dialysis. Throughout those 18 years my mom had strokes, multiple hospitalizations, and a variety of health problems related to failing kidneys. Through it all she took impeccably good care of herself because she had a vision of seeing all her children married with children and witnessing her oldest grandchild graduate from high school. My mother had a major impact on how I viewed health and healthy living. I became a personal trainer in 1993 and also earned my M.A. in Clinical Psychology from Penn State in an effort to combine my love of healthy body and healthy mind. In 2008 I was introduced to the Take Shape For Life program which offers a trilogy of Optimal Health...healthy body, healthy mind, and healthy finances. I knew I had found the perfect fit for all I hold dear! Plus I had in my hands a complete and comprehensive program that allows me to support others on their journey toward Optimal Health. I have helped so many people lose weight, reduce or eliminate medications, AND reclaim their lives! Thanks Mom!
