“From the time I was eight years old, you could find me playing sports or exercising every free moment. Although I was always active, I struggled with a few extra pounds and I was never happy with my own body. When I became a mother, I was working full time and had less time for myself. I was busy, tired and continued to struggle with my weight.
No matter what strategy I used to try to lose weight, it didn’t work. I tried low carb, low fat, less food, more exercise; nothing worked. The scale stayed the same and the extra inches kept creeping up.
The yo-yo dieting damaged my metabolism. I was exhausted and sleep deprived. I spent more hours at the gym, worked 12 hour days and took care of two young boys and a household.
My difficulties worsened when I developed hypothyroidism and went through menopause. I remained very active and ate healthy foods, but I continued to gain more body fat. Why wasn’t I seeing results?
It wasn’t until I understood there was a right and wrong way to eat my food. Learning how to correctly eat the foods I loved allowed me to stabilize my blood sugar on a consistent basis. I finally lost the weight and inches I had struggled with for so many years. I now had a plan that became a permanent lifestyle.
My results were so good that I wanted to share what I had learned so I became a certified nutrition coach. You see, I get it. I understand the pain and frustration of trying to lose weight without success. I understand low self-esteem and confidence when one isn’t happy with their body. Let me help you get your body back with the right nutrition plan for a permanent lifestyle change.”

Growing up I watched my mom develop diabetes in her mid-40s. She wasn’t overweight and didn’t eat what we think of as a bad diet. She struggled to stabilize her blood sugar and received conflicting information on how to properly keep her blood sugar balanced.
My mom had heart surgery and a triple bypass, and I’ll never forget hearing the doctor’s words: “Your mom’s heart has been severely damaged by the diabetes, and we’re not sure how much longer it will hold out.”
Although my mother never complained, I watched her endure great pain as she suffered with neuropathy, bone deformity in both feet, and other symptoms associated with diabetes. While in the hospital for treatment to a wound that would not heal, she suffered a heart attack. The doctor was right, we didn’t get much longer to spend with her.
I know deep in my heart that if I could have provided my mom with the information I now have, I could have helped her with her struggles with diabetes. I want to teach people how to lead healthier and happier lives by balancing their blood sugar while also enjoying the foods they love, and I don’t want other families to endure the pain and suffering my mother and family endured.
