Hi! I'm so glad you're here!
I'll share a little about me, but first, let's take a moment to really stop and think about where our healthcare system is at: more drugs prescribed, massive costs, less efficiency, more confusion, less root cause investigation, less time with a doctor, less preventive education, insurance needing to pre-approve everything and limited coverages, more risk and deaths attributed to health care system procedures (a term called iatrogenic death) and overall, a SICKER society.
A healthcare system that isn’t about our health...is this the place you want to be?
In 2002, I became a Registered Nurse to help people heal from illness and injury. At the time, I thought it would be the perfect profession for me to fulfill my passion for anatomy, physiology, healing and helping. I've always loved the human body and how it works. I worked in a variety of roles for 16 years including ER, Infection Prevention, Patient Safety and process/system improvement, and always believed I was working for society to be a better, healthier place. I believed the healthcare system was the way to help make that happen. But let's face it...just like everything else, healthcare is a business. A BIG business.
(Now, don’t get me wrong. There’s been great medical advancements and there are times we really need the system. Broken legs and other body parts that need repair...Yes, thank God for the skill of physicians, surgeons and the nurses and staff that support the process! There are amazing developments like mapping the human genome, stem cell research and advances in robotic surgery. There’s definitely a place for these wonderful things to happen.)
How exactly did this get me into coaching WILDFIT?
While I was in the WILDFIT Challenge from Feb-May 2021, I was blown away at the physical and emotional transformations of my 2000+ challenge-mates from around the world. My husband came along with me into WILDFIT, and we were having our own massive transformations ourselves...but to witness so many people's bodies, spirits, and lives changing before my eyes was completely mind-blowing and spectacular!
And then one day it hit me: This IS the missing link!
This experience solidified my position in the world, and on healthcare's role in society: The healthcare system won't be the solution for helping us get to, or maintain, health and wellness.
Did you know doctors get little to no training in nutrition? As a nurse, I can say this is true for nursing as well. The people we put the most trust in with our health actually know the least about helping us be healthy!
WILDFIT shattered my patterns and old ways of thinking about food and wellness. It’s a program that provides a priceless education in personal empowerment, nutrition, how to teach your body to work for you, and what’s really going on in the food industry. It taught my husband and I how to eat...to live! Check out our results below!
This is why I am working toward becoming a WILDFIT certified coach (to be completed by the end of 2021). There is a better solution than running to the doctor for every health problem. I'm so excited to offer a method that will really get you results...that last.
I look forward to working with you!
I began my WildFit journey 30 pounds over weight. Most of my life my weight was consistent, with the exception of the previous 3 years (2018-2021). I kept putting on weight after a knee injury, and I was getting very frustrated. I was extremely active before this injury, and now, every time I tried to exercise, my whole body hurt. This inactivity and frustration led to more eating, and eating things that were definitely not good for my body.
Weight change over 90 days: 176 to 157
Total inches lost: 13 (I didn't measure all the places I was supposed to)
Marco participated in this challenge only because I was in it. Turns out, he became truly involved! He was having bouts of gout 3-4 times a year in his feet, and his knee and low back were bothering him regularly.
Weight change: 253 to 221
Total inches lost: 24.5 (he measured a few more places than I did)
