I am a holistic life coach, wellness researcher, writer, professor, mother, wife, nature-lover, free-spirit, and rebel. I hold a Ph.D. and M.A. in psychology, an M.Ed. in Health Education, am a certified HeartMath coach, and was trained as an integrative health coach through Duke University. I have over 20 years combined experience as a professor, coach, trainer, counselor, and educator.
My research is at the forefront of study on the effects of stress on the mind and body. I have combined this expertise with my experience as a clinician and coach to develop and deliver state of the art wellness programs. My guiding philosophy is that those who develop and nurture holistic, heart-based practices are able to align with the life of their dreams easily and naturally. From there, anything is possible and life will unfold effortlessly.
