Welcome to Happy Mom, Healthy Mom! I am so glad you stopped by to visit. I am a Certified Health Coach who specializes in empowering moms to put themselves first, while taking care of their families. As a mom myself, I can attest to what happens when you put yourself last while putting others first. When you don’t take care of yourself, everything else can fall apart. I know it all too well and want to help other moms avoid the pitfalls of trying to “do it all.” Taking control of your health is the single most important thing you can do for yourself and for everyone in your life.

My passion for Health Coaching started after having my second child at 42, seven years after having my first. I was exhausted, depressed, had high blood pressure and was extremely overweight. In the past I had been on every diet imaginable, and the thought of restrictions and starving myself did not motivate me to make a change. Then, I started to look at food as my medicine and implemented change in my diet. I saw the results and decided I needed to help others like myself.

Even though taking charge of your health is the most important thing you can do for yourself and your family, it can also be the scariest. Change is hard and looking at it all at once can seem impossible. Even when we know what to do, we just need the right support and goals. As your health coach I will help you break everything down into small steps and set achievable goals. Those goals will be based on YOU! What works for one person will not work for another. When we know what works for us, we can implement positive strategies so we can be our best for ourselves, and ultimately our loved ones who depend upon us.
