I have a degree in Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management , along with many years of experience working in food service and retail. A few years ago I left my corporate position and opened a Premium Loose Leaf Tea Shop In Florida. Owning and operating the Tea shop my desire for healthy alternatives to traditional medicine was peaked and i began to study and use a variety of organic teas, herbs and spices to stay healthy and to improve the life of my family, friends and customers. With this passion and success I decided to become certified as a Health Coach and enrolled in coursework to accomplish this goal in order to share my experience and passion with others. Now that I have moved back to Canada, I am bringing my passion and love of Tea to Muskoka.
I received my Health Coaching training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition*, where I studied a variety of dietary theories and practical lifestyle coaching methods. This training combined with my With my knowledge, we co-create completely personalized actions based on your goals to move you toward your ideal vision of health within your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and resources.

I work with my clients to get in touch with their body’s needs because I understand that life happens and your needs will change. I want to equip you with the self-awareness to make the best decisions for yourself in any given circumstance. I believe each person is fully capable of making well-informed decisions as their own expert, not the latest magazine article or fad diet book.
Let’s define what you value most from your well-being. We’ll use these visions to motivate specific goals that bring you closer to where you want to be. As your coach, I will not dictate a diet for you, but together we will explore why some foods make you feel better than others and how to strategically use that feedback. Together we’ll co-create your health goals within reasonable time frames and actionable objectives so you know exactly what you’re working toward.
