Functional Health, Nutrition, Exercise, and Movement Coach, Digestive and Immune Health Specialist
Experienced. Certified. Supportive.
Since 2001, I’ve helped people break through the obstacles that are holding them back in life. I think we can all agree that life is far too short to be sick, sad, anxious, depressed, chronically hurt, injured, or unfulfilled.
I help others achieve optimum levels of health and performance using a whole and complete approach to healing, correcting, and up-leveling the physical, mental, and emotional state.
In my over two decades of experience as a consultant, coach, and health practitioner, I have found that people who focused on just one or two components of health were rarely as successful at achieving their goals as those that took this whole health approach to reach their goals. This approach is supported using the five elements of health; diet, rest, exercise, stressor reduction, and supplementation.
In my practice, I serve to bridge the gap between the health coach/personal trainer and the medical doctor by taking the position of a health detective to get to the root causes of your health problems. I do not focus on your symptoms but rather use them as pieces to solve your health puzzle.
I bring an extensive background in health and wellness experience with me and have the ability to teach and the desire to help others adopt a lifestyle of health that opens up opportunities for proper function and peak performance that could not otherwise exist due to chronic pain, symptoms, and illness.
My vision through Whole Health Elements is to change the way that people approach their own personal health through the focus on the root causes instead of just the symptoms of their current health conditions.
My mission is to educate, encourage, and empower people to live the healthiest life possible through the inclusion of all of the elements of health; diet, rest, exercise, stressor reduction, and supplementation.
I hold a bachelor's degree in human nutrition, foods, and exercise from Virginia Tech, am a certified personal trainer (CPT), nutrition coach, hold national board certification in therapeutic massage and bodywork (BCTMB), and am a certified Metabolic Typing® Advisor (CMTA), health coach, and digestive and immune health specialist through the Gut Thrive in 5 Practitioner program (GT5-P). I am currently pursuing certification as a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P).
