Health, Life and PTSD- Trauma Recovery Coach
I am a mother, business owner and long-time health, wellness, and domestic abuse activist.
For the past 20 years, I have worked in marketing and design, owning an advertising agency since 2002. I was passionate about my profession helping other small business owners realize their dreams, but it was fast-paced, high-stress work.
In 2010, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Disease, an autoimmune disease that attacks your thyroid impacting your metabolism on a cellular level. As a mother of a child with severe ADD and dyspraxia (a neurological disorder that impacts an individual's ability to plan and process motor tasks), I have been using diet, exercise and habit change techniques for decades to help my son. Like ADD and dyspraxia, I went all-in on researching natural, lifestyle remedies to help reduce the impact of Hasmimoto's Disease (commonly referred to as Hashi) on my life.
At the same time I was struggling with Hashi, I was in a psychologically and emotionally abusive relationship, the ending of which was extremely traumatic, adding PTSD to growing list of issues to research and overcome.
After a 20 years of working with neurological disorders, 10 years of experience with my own autoimmune hormone disorder, and 2.5 years of recovery from PTSD, I made the decision to make the switch from coaching business clients to become a health and life coach.
I am excited to use my experience and training to help people on their journey to a fuller, richer life through education, habit change, encouragement and accountability.
