My Training


I am a National Board Certified-Health and Wellness Coach by the International Consortium of Health and Wellness Coaches and the National Board of Medical Examiners.  I'm a graduate of the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy in 2017, and a member of the Institute for Functional Medicine.  If you are unfamiliar with Functional Medicine, please read more in the "What is Functional Medicine" tab.


I began my training at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2012, which was a wonderful spring board to learn about holistic healing, and have continued my learning with a long list of independent study courses.  I've been a practicing coach since then.


I'm currently studying the protocol of Dr. Dale Bredesen to prevent or reverse Cognitive Decline at the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy, and studying the science of pain at the University of Arizona.  Both courses will be completed in 2018.


If you are curious about my skills, training or abilities in any particular area, don't hesitate to ask me.  I am proud of what I now, and honest about what I don't know!
