My Story

I have been involved in the health and wellness industry since 1995,  I had gained weight after my second daughter was born and was having trouble finding solutions  where I began studying and using what I learned to live the healthiest life I could have. 

My goal is to share my knowledge with those who want to get the most out of their lives by staying healthy!

In 2008 she became a certified energy medicine practitioner, and an Institute for Integrative Nutrition Certified Health and Wellness Coach in 2015, along with other areas of health including sleep science, environmental toxins, digestive and hormone health, and essential oils.

.Back in December of 2022 my sister fell down a flight of stairs and incurred severe injuries including head trauma, 11 fractured ribs and a broken wrist.  She spent 6 months in a skilled nursing facility until she passed away on May 11, 2023.  It was at that time that she decided to dedicate her time to working with adults and seniors with longevity health coaching, fall prevention and palliative care. I became a Certified Home Safety Advisor with Age Safe America, a company that provides “age in place” services, including fall prevention education and home assessments to homeowners so that they can make the proper home renovations to age in place.  


My Krav Maga Journey

I began taking Krav Maga self defense classes in September 2021 and have recently achieved the red belt/white stripe advanced level in March 2024 at the age of 67.  My goal is to reach black belt level at 70 years old!
