My Training


After teaching for 12 years, I went back to college for additional training at Clayton College of Natural Health to study Holistic Nutrition. Holistic Nutrition is the modern natural approach to developing a healthy balanced diet while taking into account the entire person instead of any one single problem.

I received my training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition's cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program.

During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts. My teachers included Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating; and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.

My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.

The Institute for Integrative Nutrition is partnered with Purchase College, State University of New York (SUNY). I received my board accreditation as a Certified Health Coach (CHC) from the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP).

I am a Certified Stress Management Coach, a member of the International Association for Health Coaches, the National Association of Professional Women, and the South Carolina Herbal Society.
