For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted a career that revolved around physical fitness. I grew up playing every sport imaginable and gradually narrowed my choices down to becoming either a physical therapist or an athletic trainer. I took the path to become a physical therapist because I wanted to help all types of people and not just athletes with their physical ailments. I wanted to make people better. Becoming a physical therapist just made sense to me.
At first, helping people recover from all types of pain and injuries brought a sense of fulfillment. However, over time I started to see a lot of the same faces over and over again. I realized that very often underneath the surface of patient’s physical suffering were underlying issues ranging from excessive weight, diabetes and endocrine/hormonal issues which would always prevent them from finally turning a corner. I could make someone feel better, however the original pain, or some new pain would always end up coming back. My patients would ask me for help with losing weight, or improving energy levels and I was embarrassed as a health care professional to be unable to provide meaningful, lasting advice.
This passion to help people truly attain better overall health and wellness led me to the Primal Health Coach Institute. After earning the certification I am finally capable and motivated to share this research based information on proven strategies that lead to purposeful life transformations. I'm grateful for the opportunities that I have to teach people how to achieve optimal wellness and live life to their full potential.
