I love helping people, especially women, bridge the gap between physical and mental fitness so they can become the healthiest version of themselves inside and out.
I started my healthy lifestyle journey as a child, very active in gymnastics and track and curious about how the food I ate would sustain my body through all the activity. As an adult I explored weightlifting, kickboxing, pilates, yoga, and more! I experimented with a variety of dietary strategies to eat healthy, get lean, or gain muscle.
Friends and coworkers would ask about my strategies, inspired to make changes in their lives. I loved being able to share my experiences and knowledge with them. When I finally learned what a Health Coach was, I knew this was how I could help more people to make healthy changes in their lives.
I felt I could best get started by becoming a yoga teacher. The teachings in yoga go way beyond the physical and invite you to create balance, which I found to have a profound impact on my own life. I’ve been teaching yoga since 2017.
Now I've added in the next layer, focusing less on just the physical aspects of a healthy lifestyle and offering a more well-rounded approach that encourages change through the small and regular improvement of habits.
I believe in living a healthy life, filled with joy and gratitude. This inspires and guides my coaching practice, which is focused on helping my clients better connect to themselves and their healthiest self.
Remember, when your practice, your exercise or your life gets tough, the first step is to just breathe. Now, let's discover your healthiest self.
I'm a forever student. I love to learn and to bring that knowledge into what I teach.
Hive Certified Business
As a founding member of The Hive in Wichita, KS, I'm proud to have completed their Hive Certified Business course as it aligns with how I believe in doing business: authentically, vulnerably, growth-focused, professionally, and celebrating the successes of others all along the way.
I chose the YOGABODY Breathing Certification because they break down pranayama (breathing practices) into a safe, simple and effective practice that makes it easy for new students to make part of their daily habits. I've been a longtime proponent of learning how to use breathing techniques to reduce stress, improve sleep and digestion and to tone the nervous system for better resilience.
Nutrition Coach, Pn1
I began studying with Precision Nutrition in their Level 1 program because I want to learn more about the science of nutrition and the art of coaching. Everyone is in progress towards something. PN has a system and methodology that I can use to improve my own habits and to help my clients achieve life-changing results.
I invested in Sadie Nardini's course so that I could offer my students a different type of yoga class that is fun and empowering while offering a great workout in addition to the benefits of yoga. High-Intensity Interval Training is a great option to boost the metabolism and burn fat.
Registered Yoga Teacher
The decision to go through Yoga Teacher Training happened at a critical point in my career. I jumped in with both feet and have continued to learn and discover the many facets of yoga every day since. On this journey I have learned about Lunar energy, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, HIIT Yoga, Partner Yoga and Seasonal Yoga.
Professional Project Manager
Being a Project Manager is a lot like being a coach. You first establish what needs to be done, what the goal is. Then you work with a team to figure out the best steps to accomplish that goal and offer assistance and encouragement. Pair that with a timeline or end date and regular check-ins and you're off and running.
