About Me

As a Holistic Life Coach, I help guide people to find own ways to deal with their every day stress and anxiety with a more loving and holistic approach.  Over the last 25 years I have used my “powers” to help employees in every day work experiences, but along the way found that I was mentoring and coaching them on so many other parts of life. These experiences and moments have helped me grow both personally and professionally.  

 

Most recently in my 10 years as the Assistant Manager of a high end retailer, I had the pleasure helping many people over the years, not just by selling beautiful jewelry, but also by offering a level of friendship and support to our clients.  Over this time I had the pleasure to train and mentor over 25 girls who graduated from a local university and move into their next steps in life.  

 

This time helped me see the level of stresses and how they can manifest so differently in both our clients and staff, yet still have a common thread at the base of learning to deal with stress and anxiety and moving past common limiting factors.   

 

In recent years, I also found moments to aim for goals of my own.  In this process of growth, I found the world of triathlon races.  Since 2013, I have competed in countless races including two 70.3 Ironman races ( Yes - that’s 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike and 13.1 mile run = 70.3 miles!).  Racing has taught me how to work hard, what dedication means, but also allowed me to grow friendships and community.   

Over the last few years it has become a family affair as I have watched my children reaching for big goals too. 

 

My life took an unexpected turn while I was training for my 1st ½ ironman race - a friend was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.  As she started on her path to healing using more holistic forms of treatment, our neighborhood called to arms.  We planned a track meet and health fair to help offset the costs of her treatment.  This event and the passion from our neighborhood is how the HealThy Life NJ Non-Profit started.

 

As the President of the orgnaization, we've helped late stage cancer patients seeking holistic care with resources, support and financial assistance since 2017.  As we helped our friend,  it was hard to not notice that her healthier lifestyle did not lead to the many side effects that high doses of chemotherapy and radiation did. I saw that taking your health into your own hands could be scary, but also so needed.  We have to decide what we want to FEED our body. This isn’t just the food we eat, but also the thoughts we allow into our mind.  

The mission of the HealThy Life organization helped to feed my need to learn more. I was attuned in Reiki 1 and enrolled in a year long Community Herbalist program where I learned ways to use plant preparations to help support the mind/ body/ spirit connection. The connections with all my walks of life helped me see the need for a good support system in times of need.  

I loved the idea of minimizing all the chemicals and toxins in my family's everyday life by cleaning up the products we use.  Doterra definitely helped me find the mind and body balance during the difficult long training hours, dealing with the stress of managing a household with two boys and a full time job. 

 

This led me to The Wisdom of the Whole Coaching Academy where I was able to learn new skills to help people establish what’s important in your life, helping you create an action plan to achieve it and give you all the help, encouragement and motivation to make it all a reality.  Want to learn more?
