You Turn Health Coaching

I have worked with clients just like you to feel better and look better as they gain control over their health and overall well-being.



If you look into the future what do you see?  What is your dream life like? Does it involve a healthier more balanced lifestyle? Does it include gathering with your friends and family in a wholesome present way?

The moment that was my turning point in the direction of health coaching was when I realized I was stressing out my body and nervous system to the brink of collapse. I would get through each day using coping strategies instead of living in the present. I would wake up early to start the day taking care of two young children and working many hours in a stressful career. I was working as the executive chef for a network of hospitals, going to college full time and raising our two young children. I would cope with coffee, hot tea and unhealthy snacking after work to get me through the next shift of making dinner, homework and being a mom at home. During these stressful years, I lost my mother unexpectedly which left me with unresolved feelings of guilt.  Life was a struggle and I felt unsuccessful in each role. I was juggling high priorities with high expectations every day. My body told me “enough is enough”. I had a couple of health issues that interrupted life pretty significantly. This was my wake up call to change my life, to become healthy, present and whole.   


I decided to make small changes in my life to include time to heal and nurture myself. I incorporated changes gradually, but consistently to improve my health and well-being.  These small changes led to bigger decisions like starting health coaching classes at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN).  This program has taught me a lot about healing and health journey with a holistic approach. 


Life is better now with a better understanding of myself and my needs. I feel more confident and excited about each day.  Learning to balance life in many areas has helped me to become a better person in each role.


I am learning how to help others become healthier because of my own journey and IIN. I want to share with others that with the right support they can make incremental changes in their life to become happier and healthier. 

You-turn health coaching is about working together, step by step to reach your goals.
