Speaker & Author
Health & Weight Loss Mentor
A “work in progress” is how I describe myself! I’ve weathered a host of personal challenges in my 66 years on this planet and am thankful to have discovered the life-changing power of having a “renewed mind”. God has taught me many profound lessons and my passion is to pass those on to you! Whether the topic is body, soul, or spirit – I am willing to transparently share my stories and boldly proclaim the truth of God’s love and word to transform us when we humbly surrender to his awesome power.
I’ve got a really diverse professional background – a registered nurse specializing in labor and delivery, corporate marketing manager for a fortune 100 company, fitness professional, lifestyle coach and a talk radio host to name a few. In 1997, I also the founded Women of Purpose – a California outreach ministry for women.
One of my favorite roles is that of a keynote speaker for women’s retreats and conferences. You can learn more about my topics and even watch some of my speaking videos HERE.
While it may seem to many that I’m qualified to coach you because of my background as a registered nurse and professional fitness credentials, I actually believe my greater wisdom comes from my own experience overcoming an unhealthy relationship with food and improper body image. It was so severe in my early 20’s that I was bingeing and purging up to five times per day. I was utterly out of control – feeling helpless to change – and yet desperately wanting to realize lasting victory.
I tried almost every diet under the sun and ended up becoming more and more obsessed with food and rather than losing – I ended up gaining more weight. I hated the back fat that bulged under my bra strap and how my thighs rubbed together. I was constantly self-conscious of my appearance and feeling fat and ugly.
After years of trying diet pills, struggling with bulimia, and losing and gaining weight, I wondered if I’d ever break free of my bondage. Through prayer and in complete brokenness, I discovered the power of renewing my mind biblically and how to practice a few simple nutritional principles that eventually became my sustainable lifestyle. I only wish it had not taken me decades to figure out the healthiest way to balance my body, soul, and spirit in a way that honored God and promoted lasting change.
I’m here to share that there is a path to freedom! I’ve experienced lasting weight loss and health for the over 30 years. I am not special. I believe you can realize the same results if you follow our program and commit to changing your habits in God-honoring ways.
