So here’s the thing, I’ve been in healthcare all my adult life. Home Health Aide, Patient Care Associate, Trauma Tech, Telemetry Tech, Certified Medical Assistant, blah, blah, blah.
I’ve worked in hospitals on multiple floors, trained allied health professionals, assisted in opening up new floors, worked in clinic settings, leading medical assistants, site supervisor, blah, blah, blah.
Almost 20 years of doing the same thing (taking care of people) combined with my passion for personal development has cultivated something in me and although taking care of thousands of patients has been fulfilling, I wanted and needed to find a way to add value to people in a more significant way
Almost 20 years of doing the same thing (taking care of people) combined with my passion for personal development has cultivated something in me and although taking care of thousands of patients has been fulfilling, I wanted and needed to find a way to add value to people in a more significant way. I’ve been “eating healthy” and mostly plant based diet since around 1996 and for years, friends and family and a lot of my guy friends would ask me for advice.
To add to this, I was a latchkey kid (I got home from school before my mum got home from work) and learned to cook at an early age and have loved cooking and preparing foods every since.
Not to go all spiritually on you (not sure if that’s a real word), but I’m gonna go all spiritually on you and say, I now know this entire time, I was being fashioned, groomed if you will to be a Health Coach! I’ve been loosely attached to and affiliated with the Wellness community for a long time but wanted to incorporate some structured learning around my experience.
You can learn more about my school and training here.
This is about transformation. The mission is far from over after your 6 month journey. As the tribe grows, there will be community meetups, in-person classes, webinars, etc…
As the tribe grows, so will the value you get from being a part of it, and from contributing to it.
Men have a much harder time than women at becoming friends, we have a tendency to let our ego’s and “Alpha” get in the way (we’re not gorillas by the way, so get over yourself:)
Whether you want to enroll in my 6 month program, use the resources on my site, or subscribe to my weekly newsletter, pick a path and join my tribe.
I’m currently studying at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I’m learning innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories – Ayurveda, gluten-free, Paleo, raw, vegan, macrobiotics, and everything in between.
My education has equipped me with extensive, cutting-edge knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and prevention. Drawing on my expertise, I work with my clients to help make lifestyle changes and choose health-promoting ways that produce real and lasting results. You will develop a deeper understanding of food and lifestyle choices that work best for you, improving your energy, balance, health, and happiness.
The video will give you a glimpse of what’s it’s like to be trained by #1 and largest Health Coach School in the world.
Each session will leave you feeling inspired and motivated. We will talk about things beyond food, seeking to bring balance to important elements of your life such as love and relationships as well as career and money. I will personally and carefully guide you to make simple, small changes that transform your life. An Integrative Nutrition Health Coach is a guide and mentor who empowers you and provides ongoing support and guidance as you set goals and make sustainable changes that improve your health and happiness.
As your Health Coach, I will listen carefully and we’ll navigate the world of contradictory nutrition and health advice together to explore what truly works for you.
I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that I look at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship(s) cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we will look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.
I work with my clients to get in touch with their body’s needs because I understand that life happens and your needs will change. I want to equip you with the self-awareness to make the best decisions for yourself in any given circumstance. I believe each person is fully capable of making well-informed decisions as their own expert, not the latest magazine article or fad diet book.
Let’s define what you value most from your well-being. We’ll use these visions to motivate specific goals that bring you closer to where you want to be. As your coach, I will not dictate a diet for you, but together we will explore why some foods make you feel better than others and how to strategically use that feedback. Together we’ll co-create your health goals within reasonable time frames and actionable objectives so you know exactly what you’re working toward.
The Integrative Nutrition Plate emphasizes the importance of local and organic produce, whole grains, high-quality proteins, plant-based fats, and water. It shows you how a plate should appear at mealtime and emphasizes the importance of proportions and portion size. To complete the picture, the plate is surrounded with lifestyle factors that create optimal health: relationship, career, physical activity and spirituality. I’ll introduce you to some of the healthiest foods on the planet and teach you how to find what’s healthiest for your unique body!
It’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. It’s not just the food we eat that affects our health, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity, and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these primary foods are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. I will support you in achieving all of your goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.
*Reread the above again; If you’re just looking for recipes and someone to tell you what to eat and not eat, we aren’t a fit for each other
Many nutrition experts give their clients a list of foods to avoid and foods to eat, which explains why so many people are turned off by nutrition. My approach is different – by eating and drinking foods that are good for you, you will naturally have less room and desire for unhealthy foods. Simply put, you will crowd out the unhealthy food in your diet. This takes a little practice to make happen, but I will support you along the way.
The concept of Bio-IINndividuality is the idea that each of us has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, I’ll support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background.
Cravings play a critical role in understanding what your body needs and shouldn’t be ignored. When you learn how to deconstruct your cravings and understand what they’re really telling you, you will be able to reclaim a sense of balance and harmony.
Yours to count on,
““A tribe is a group of people connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea. For millions of years, human beings have been part of one tribe or another. A group needs only two things to be a tribe: a shared interest and a way to communicate.””
