Mover • Shaker • Healthy People Maker

I help women to mend their relationship with their body so they can achieve true deep health and deliver their best to the things that matter most to them.

I defy labels (and so do you, by the way) so rather than calling myself a trainer, or health coach or women’s health advocate, I refer to myself as a mover, a shaker and a healthy people maker. So much better, right?

I have a unique background as a dancer, movement teacher, personal trainer, health coach, self-development junkie, motivation speaker and ex-perfectionist.

I have been traveling in the fitness and wellness space for more than 20 years and cannot imagine anything I’d rather be doing for a living than helping women to reclaim their health and happiness.

Despite my strong background in the wellness industry, I haven’t always been what I consider “well”; I haven’t always felt in control of my own health and happiness. There was a time in my life when I felt physically and mentally subpar and I was very confused about how to move from the state of merely surviving to the place I knew I was meant to live…a place of thriving.

So…

I hired people to help me.  And asking for help from people who had traveled a bit further than I had, it turns out, was exactly what I needed.   Asking for help, I discovered, was not a weakness but my ticket to living an extraordinary life.

I learned first hand that deep health isn’t about following someone else’s set of rules and regulations for your life, it is about being willing, ready and able to write your own playbook.   Through personal experience, loads of education and the opportunity to help hundreds of clients, I have developed a knack for helping others to up-level their health and happiness in a way that is sensible, powerful and, above all sustainable.
