Losing weight, eating right, getting fit, toning up, feeling better, gaining confidence, and having more energy. Are these all on your wish list too? The pursuit of health and fitness is plagued with a minefield of confusing and conflicting information, so what’s the answer to achieving your best body? It’s different for everyone. We get caught up in looking for THE diet and exercise plan that will FINALLY be the one we can adopt as our new lifestyle. Or maybe we white knuckle our way through a plan, thinking we’ll figure out how to maintain later, since that’ll be easier than losing (myth alert). Then life gets in the way and we go back to the drawing board. This approach leads us to believe we’ll only achieve our goals by making a big change. This all or nothing thinking will only lead to frustration.

My goal is to guide you through slow, manageable, sustainable change that fits into the life you already lead, with the habits you already do (everyone is already doing something right). By practicing daily actions to develop skills that lead to habits, change happens without diets or plans. Change happens even though you had a bad day, skipped a workout, ate some “junk” food, or otherwise led a normal life with bumps in the road. The only true way to stop struggling with weight loss and getting in shape is to make slow, steady changes that become as much a part of your life as brushing your teeth or putting on your PJ’s.

I offer fitness classes, incentive challenges, and nutrition and fitness coaching and would love to help you find and do what makes YOU feel AWESOME!

Who am I?

I’m a certified Exercise Physiologist (American College of Sports Medicine), Nutrition Coach (Precision Nutrition Level 1), and Dance Fitness Instructor (World of Dance U-Jam Fitness) with a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from UIUC. I’ve managed corporate wellness centers, teach small group and individual training classes, and run online incentive and coaching programs. I’ve been passionate about health and fitness for over 20 years and am always eager to learn and apply more. I’m married with 3 school-aged children and am a breast cancer survivor.

I love to dance, hike, bike, ski, skate, stretch, plan, organize, travel and spend time with friends and family. I also enjoy fun challenges like trapeze, ropes courses, epic hikes and fun endurance events.

When it comes to nutrition, the most compelling thing I’ve found is stopping and asking myself why and talking myself through moments. “Why are you eating so fast right now?” “Why are you obsessively thinking about getting 2nd’s?” When you actually acknowledge what you’re doing “out loud”, you uncover thoughts around food and eating that you never realized were there, influencing what you do.

Join me on the journey to better energy, clarity, confidence, and a more relaxed, fulfilling relationship with food and exercise that leads to the right body weight even when life is imperfect.
