I coach people who want to build a healthier life, from the ground up. Whether we focus on personal or work themes, you can expect energizing conversations that identify barriers, create resiliency, develop goals, and secure habits for joy and satisfaction.
I hold credentials from the National Board for Health & Wellness Coaching, Duke Integrative Medicine and Wisdom Of The Whole Coaching Academy. I am a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University and The University of Virginia. My knowledge comes from ten years of coaching, and over three decades working in the fields of corporate wellness education, psychotherapy, and advanced nursing practice.
My personal experience is that awareness of mind, body, and breath creates a strong foundation for navigating life. I also believe that awareness builds self-love, a foundation for all aspects of life, influencing decision making around relationships, work, and purpose.
Much of my work since 2016 is traveling with a team throughout the country, teaching Whole Health Coaching to staff of the Veterans Health Administration. This is part of of the tremendous transformation taking place in the VHA with the advent of Whole Health, focusing on what the veteran wants to change around their circle of health.
I am a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) specializing in Hatha Yoga and Yin Yoga. I believe that yoga is accessible to all who want to explore and benefit from this ancient practice. I enjoy modifying practices for all bodies and ages. I also orchestrate Laughter Yoga RVA, a group that promotes wellness using the practice of unconditional laughter.
