who am I

I have written for online sites such AKA Mom magazine, where you can find articles such as ‘Look like a Beauty, Eat like a Beast’. I am a Health Educator with a BS in Public Health and MS in Exercise Science and Health Promotion. My certifications are NSHC certified Health Coach, Certified Personal Trainer, Fitness Nutrition Specialist, and Weight Loss Specialist

My journey began as a Licensed Practical Nurse working in school health. The state of children’s health led me to pursue a career in health promotion. I soon learned people were searching for logical health advice they could fit into their lifestyle.

A few things we’re great at

Launched in 2016 as a community for wellness warriors and anyone looking for logical and useful health information.

This is written with you in mind; the person trying to live a healthy lifestyle and still have a life.

Motivational interviewing-based health coaching as a chronic care intervention

To evaluate the impact of motivational interviewing-based health coaching on a chronically ill group of participants compared with non-participants. Specifically, measures that could be directly attributed to a health coaching intervention on chronic illness were assessed.


participants improved self-efficacy and perceived health status


participants decreased their stages of change risk over time than non-participants


These results support motivational interviewing-based health coaching as an effective chronic care management intervention in impacting outcome measures that could also serve well as a proxy in the absence of other clinical or cost indices
