How did you know health coaching was right for you?

I don’t remember how I first heard of health coaching, probably an ad online or through a friend. I don’t know, but I knew it was right for me because I’m totally a crazy foodie who wants to be healthy, and I want all the people around me to be healthy, and I want the planet to be healthy. I’m crazy about all those things. And it was just the perfect way for me to feel juiced everyday about being the change I wished to see in the world.

How did you know when it was the right time to start your health coach training?

Great question! I don’t think you ever really know for sure. I remember feeling like it was scary, and my brain was like, “there are a lot of reasons not to do this sort of thing!”

I remember really, really mulling it over, and my brain kept going back and forth, like “it isn’t the right time, but I really want it, but it’s too much money, but it’s really calling to me….”

I was vice-president of sales for a winery, and when I got pregnant with my son, I knew I wasn’t going to want to travel as much as I was required to for my job. So I enrolled in school, sort of planning to transition to health coaching so I could live my best life – for me and for my family.

How has your life changed as a result of becoming a health coach?

My life has changed so much. I think the best way I can say it is that I feel freedom and purpose every day now. I almost give myself the chills with that answer, because it’s true. And how cool is that?
