About Me

My background

My career has been dedicated to helping others in their quest for health in body and mind.  My background in psychology, dietetics, exercise physiology, and public health together have provided a perfect blend for inspiring others in achieving whole body wellness.  I am excited for you to join me in your journey of health, knowledge, motivation and well being.  I have had the privilege of writing for, and contributing to journals and magazines, and look forward to more this year.
