I thought I knew what “healthy” meant. I exercised 6 times a week. I followed the healthy food trends. And I had been working in the health care industry for nearly a decade.
So yea, I thought I knew what “healthy” was. And, honestly, I thought I was living it. But on my journey to become an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, I realized I was wrong.
Healthy living isn’t about numbers – number of work outs, numbers on the scale or number of calories per meal. Healthy living means doing the things your body needs to thrive.
That realization changed my life. I stopped following food and exercise trends and started to listen to my body. It wasn’t easy at first, but I eventually found a healthy rhythm that fit effortlessly into my life.
Today, I am no longer a gym rat. And I definitely don’t follow a diet full of “don’ts”. Now, I just live my life and eat foods that make me feel good.
And I want to help others do the same. I work with people who want to become their healthiest selves. People who are sick of dieting. And people who are ready to make a serious life change. I give them the tools they need to lose weight, gain control over food, and stop the negative self-talk so they can actually enjoy eating again.
As a healthy living expert, I've featured at the Kitchen Community, Center for Health Innovation & Implementation Science, and Orange Theory Fitness. When I'm not busy working, you can find my nose behind a book, preparing dinner for friends and family, or hanging with the cutest pup in town – Max (yea, I'm totally biased). While I'm happy to be back home in Indianapolis, I love visiting cities around the country and world. I'd be happy to spend another week or two in Buenos Aires, London, and Tokyo.
Some more about me…
I lived on the east coast for nine years before moving back to my hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana. I have a Master’s of Science from Tufts University School of Medicine and a Bachelor’s of Arts from Indiana University. I am a Certified Health Coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
I hate running; so, I ditched it for yoga, walking, and weights.
I can’t imagine life without Max. He’s literally one the cutest pups you’ll ever lay your eyes on (yes, I’m biased).
