About Me

DSC_0208 (2)I’m a Certified Holistic Health Coach and Electrodermal Screening Practitioner, and my passion is to partner with my clients to restore their bodies to optimal health so that they can live with passion and purpose as God intended for each of us.

I have 20+ years of passionate, self-driven training in holistic health practices, received a double certification through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City and Dr. Sears Wellness Institute in Colorado, and have a BBA degree in Business Information Systems and Quantitative Analysis from from Mississippi State University.  I studied EAV/Electrodermal Screening at the Academy of International BioEnergetic Sciences in London, Ontario, Canada with the renowned EAV Practitioner and Naturopath Dr. Robert Cass.  I am currently continuing my studies towards a Doctorate of Naturopathy certification.

My first memory of the desire to find the root cause of health issues occurred when I was 15 years old.  I was having severe pain in my left side on an ongoing basis.  After being taken to the ER several times because of the severe pain, the doctor surmised that I had inflammation around my ovary and prescribed an anti-inflammatory to alleviate the symptoms.  My first question to him was “what is causing the inflammation….it is not normal for a 15 year old to have inflammation causing so much pain?” Even though I didn’t recognize it at the time, looking back now, I realize that was the first indication that God had gifted me with the innate desire to find the root cause of a health issue in order to provide the body with the natural substance(s) it needs to heal itself.  My desire was to find out what was causing the inflammation as opposed to just taking a drug to alleviate the symptoms.

My desire to find the root cause of health issues continued through adulthood, but became more intensive when I had my children. After my children were diagnosed with eczema, allergies, asthma, and ADD (among other things) I made it my mission to find the root cause of those issues instead of medicating them to alleviate the symptoms. I fired a couple of their pediatricians because they continued to prescribe unnecessary medications after I made it clear to them that I was not a mom who wanted to walk out of their office with a prescription for every symptom.

After staying home with my three children for 17 years I was privileged with the opportunity to pursue my God-given passion of providing empowerment to those seeking balance and achieving wholeness so they can live a joy-filled, abundant life.

With my extensive training, coupled with the gifts of encouragement and teaching, I am now fulfilling my life-long passion as I support each client on their individual journey toward optimal health using the most current studies and technologies available to help them identify imbalances that may be perpetuating their illness/symptoms, and guiding them in their choices along the way.

I do not diagnose or treat disease, but simply identify energetic imbalances, clarify obstacles in the body that are causing these imbalances, and assist each client in addressing them so that the body can find balance and heal naturally according to God’s design.

I specialize in BioEnergetic Screening, also know as Electrodermal Screening, using the state-of-the-art Avatar and Asyra systems along with individual and group health and nutrition coaching. Other services include Chi Machine treatments for lymphatic movement, Ion Cleanse Detox Footbath to assist in detoxification, and MindFit technology.

During my training as a Holistic Health Coach, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. My teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.

My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in Electrodermal Screening, holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with each client to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
