"What sets me apart is that I know from experience what its like to live with health challenges, especially chronic conditions. I live with Lyme dis ease and weight issues. So whether your challenges are physical, emotional or both, I understand how hard it can be to make lasting change for a healthier life because I’ve had to do it myself. This is why I believe my experience makes me uniquely qualified to help you.

"I've made it my mission to share my experience and  knowledge to help others stop the struggle and reboot their lives in a more balanced and healthy way.  Together we will chart a course - navigating a wellness plan that will change your life."

My passion is the arts as I was an art history major at Duquesne. Currently I enjoy Fiberarts like the cape I made above.

My commitment  is for clean healthy water both salty and fresh, kind of like my language.
