ShiftSetGo Weight Loss Coach and Certified Health Coach
My journey to becoming a health coach began when I was working in the biomedical field and felt stuck, and unhappy with life. I knew that my life was meant to be exciting, and my career rewarding. So, I began seeking what was next for me. I’ve always had an interest in health and wellness, and a desire to help others. I knew there had to be a way to positively impact people’s lives in the health industry that allowed me to be hands on and work directly with people.
Fast-forward a few years, and here I am! I discovered health coaching and obtained my certificate from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Through my studies, I learned how my work/life balance was setting me up for chronic illness, and how much I wanted to be working directly in my community. I’m inspired to help others regain control of their lives to have energy to do what they love, as I am doing the same!
I’ve grown up in Kitsap and love it here! When I’m not working with Ideal Wellness, I’m building my personal coaching business, playing with my dog, riding my horses and enjoying time with my family and friends (if I’m lucky near or on a mountain).
I believe in living your best life possible and am here to give you the tools and resources to do so!

My passion for health and good nutrition began when I was 16. I was diagnosed with an autoimmune illness. I still had hope that I would get better. Then my doctor told me that my illness would only get worse and soon I would be totally bed ridden. Devastated, I gave up and stayed in bed, day after day. I found comfort in desserts. Sugar certainly did not help my situation, but it helped me to stuff my emotions. Right then I knew I had two choices. I could continue down the path of self-sabotage and speed up my misery. Or I could fight and work to create a healthy lifestyle. I chose to fight. Giving up was only making my emotional and physical health worse.
I started telling myself, “You can do this!”, instead of my usual negative self-talk. It was difficult at first, but I would visualize myself living the life I truly wanted. I got a job at a health food store and I read every book I could. Through my new knowledge, the support of my friends/family, supplements, and good nutrition, I conquered my illness.
I am now a certified Health and Life Coach. I am excited to be working at Ideal Wellness and love coming to work every day. I can’t wait to support clients in finding the fighter inside of them and creating the healthy lifestyle they have always wanted.
