Become the Healthiest Version of You!

My Training

I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories; everything from Ayurveda, gluten-free, and Paleo, keto, to raw, vegan, and macrobiotics, and everything in between.

It was a long-term goal of mine to pursue my certification as a Health Coach.  I overcame a serious health issues by taking my health into my own hands; immersing myself in education about how nutrition can heal the body.  I know first-hand how powerful food can be as medicine and now I want to help inspire others to find the dietary plan that works best for them.  I believe in the bio-individual and holistic methods of integrative medicine to consider people as unique individuals while looking at the whole body, not just treating one symptom.  My role as your Health Coach will be to provide you with knowledge about YOUR BODY and the actionable steps and skills to achieve your optimal state of health...not what works for someone else.

Let's face it, there is a lot of confusing, conflicting and downright false information out there to sort through, which is my job to do as your Health Coach - I want to make it easier, not harder, to be healthy. We are all uniquely different, so why wouldn't it be the same about what type of diet will work best for you?  Working together, we will create your own Personal Nutrition Blueprint while exploring other aspects of wellness such as career, relationships, physical activity that all play a role in overall wellness.  The body and mind are connected and IIN approaches wellness from that holistic perspective, which is why it is one of the most powerful programs in integrative health today.  I don't have an agenda other than to listen and support you in becoming the healthiest version of you, so I hope that you and I will have an opportunity to embark on that journey together.

I am continuously learning and I have gone beyond IIN to earn a become a Certified 21-Day-Sugar Detox Coach.  I find this program to be one of the easiest and most empowering ways to transform your health and break free from the chains of sugar and processed foods.  You will eat better and feel better than ever before on this plan and it's a wonderful way to jump-start any healthy lifestyle program.  You can learn more about this monthly program by contacting me directly at or by visiting my 21-Day-Sugar-Detox webpage.

In addition to running my own health coaching practice, I am the Director of Professional and Continuing Education at the Maryland University of Integrative Health.  In this role, I develop and manage innovative programming offerings to advance the integrative health education space by enhancing the skills of alternative medicine clinicians and wellness professionals.  This affords me the unique opportunity to synergize my passion and purpose; therefore I feel highly fulfilled through the work I do with both the University and MyHealthyTransitions Health Coaching and I want to share the knowledge that is at our fingertips with the rest of the world.

We are all at different stages and as health seekers, we are always on a winding path to what we determine is "perfect health".  Wherever you are on your health journey, I will meet you there.  I look forward to hearing from you soon about how I can support you in reaching your goals for wellness.
