About Us

I was fortunate to have led a very healthy lifestyle as a young child. We had fresh fruits and vegetables from the garden, milk, meat and eggs from the neighboring farms. We had acres of land to run around on and clean air and water.

As a young teen my interest in health and nutrition began to develop but I received so much misinformation as to lead me to many practices that were not at all healthy. I did every fad diet that came along, and included plain old starvation as a consistent way to lose weight.

I also exercised a lot, which helped, but it must not have been beneficial all the time, as I was so malnourished. When we are young these things work, but not when we reach our 30’s, 40’s and older.

The first time I received some sane advice about nutrition, weight loss and fitness was in chiropractic college, but I was still too sick to actually put this advice into practice on a consistent basis.

When I turned 40, a personal trainer helped me like no other, and we began to make a lot of progress by teaching me to EAT! I had to eat to get my body to lose weight and become healthy. But, I still struggled.

All of these situations led me to where I am today; with a fascination for finding a way to lose weight in a healthy environment and keep the pounds off for years to come.

This passion for staying fit and healthy into old age, is a major benefit for my clients as my goal is to educate and encourage patients to lose weight, keep it off and even more importantly, become healthy!
