I’ve been a health, wellness, and fitness enthusiast for a good part of my adult life, but my journey truly began after receiving my first college degree, a BS in marketing, in 1991. Disillusioned by the business world, I decided to fill my time between job-hunting by becoming an aerobics instructor. The course was taught by a physical therapist and I was immediately enchanted by her knowledge and mastery of the human muscular system. The rest as they say is history. I applied to a Masters program and received my masters degree in physical therapy in 1996. I continue to work in this capacity serving both the geriatric population and a multitude of different pathologies in a clinical outpatient rehab setting specializing in Pilates. I am also Pilates reformer certified and consider that one of the great healers of chronic pain.
Full disclosure, while I’ve never had a significant, health-concerning problem with being overweight, I have definitely had extra pounds and have been less fit many times in my life. Finally dialing in my nutrition four years ago changed my life for the better in more ways than I can count. It spilled over into all aspects of my life and even gave me the discipline to get out of debt. Becoming a nutrition coach and helping others reach their goals feels like the cherry on the sundae of my life
I can tell you that I am no stranger to hard work. After many painful experiences in my life, I have been known to turn to other means of self medicating that I have had to leave behind to become a better me. So believe me when I tell you… I get you. I get the difficulty of the journey. I get the struggles. I get the wanting more for yourself. I get what it feels like to succeed at a goal, and to fail. If you trust me with your journey, together we will make your life change.
I make my life in Scranton, Pa (hey Office fans!!) and my other passions include my children Mairin and Grace (all grown up now), my fur babies Phinneas and Hazel (and let’s face it all fur babies), coaching CrossFit athletes and, oh yeah, silver hair !
I am thrilled to be a part of the Falcon family and I am excited to bring you into the best version of you imaginable.
