Here’s A Little About Me…

After the birth of my first child in 2003 I decided to work from home and become an entrepreneur…

My first business was a natural parenting boutique and online store where I sold items to new parents to make their baby-raising years as natural and chemical free as possible.  I was hit by the entrepreneurial bug after this experience and knew that I wanted to coach people to make their life healthy, happy and easy while raising a health conscious family.

In 2006 I had my second child, and two weeks later graduated with my Master’s in Health Studies where I focused my studies on mental health in the Aboriginal Youth population.  I continued to assist Canada’s First Nation communities with developing, evaluating and understanding their children’s and maternal health programs.

In 2008 I had my last child, sold my online baby store and began focusing on direct sales where I became a leader and built the first team in my local city.

In 2010 I had a diagnosis of cervical cancer and my life took on an entire new meaning.  I had surgery in 2011 and then started my own raw food journey, which started by reading Colin T. Campbell’s book The China Study.  I drank my first green smoothie in March 2012 and I’ve never looked back.  I started organizing local events at my home regarding health by having juicing parties, documentary days, special guest speakers and healthy potlucks.  I knew there was a local interest in connecting with healthy, like-minded individuals.

In 2013 I decided to become a Certified Health Coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition after spending 14 years working in the social service field. I opened my coaching practice with a few clients and held regular kitchen classes.

I will be launching my first book in 2014 and continue to provide private and group coaching programs, online events, kitchen classes and corporate workshops.
