About Me:

    

     I have been a physical therapist for 31 years with 29 of those at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center before I decided to retire.  I have done Health and Wellness Coaching for 2 years and I have realized that the two professions compliment each other nicely.  Both of these professions give me the opportunity to help others to avoid chronic diseases, improve their health with chronic diseases and maximize the quality of their lives. 

​     Why am I a Christian Health and Wellness Coach? I want to offer prayer, strength and spiritual encouragement to those that are interested. I have been a Christian since I was a teenager and I know that I cannot do anything on my own, but only through the strength and power of Jesus. I have needed strength, beyond myself, constantly over the years to juggle work, college, family, marriage and three kids. God has taught me many lessons along the way that I am happy to share if needed! I am motivated for the day only because I know that the Lord has a plan and purpose for me. I am not sure who the Lord is going to bring into my life that day, but I never think the people that I encounter are by chance. I am grateful for all of my life experiences and my faith has been strengthened through every blessing and every struggle.

     I know that you have your own purpose and beliefs. You have a light that needs to shine! I will help you to spend your valuable time on what you decide is most important to you. I welcome clients with any faith or non-faith based frame of reference. I work with many people from different cultures, races, faiths and lifestyles. I enjoy working with people that have walked different paths than I have as we all learn from each other and grow together. I am not here to push my faith on others, but I am here to show you that I care and to show you that you are not alone. I believe that we are all looking for more love, hope, peace and happiness.

     I have a loving husband that is my best friend and three amazing adult children (my daughter and twin boys), and I learn from each one of them all of the time!  While my Mom and Dad have both passed, I carry with me all of the lessons that they have taught me. For instance, my Mom instilled in me the love of home remedies and taking care of yourself naturally and my Dad instilled in me the love of gardening. Therefore, I like drying herbs, composting and gardening with my husband to avoid chemicals on our food. I surround myself with lots of indoor plants and I could never have too many! I enjoy taking hikes, camping with my family and friends, and I make the time to exercise to stay healthy. I cannot forget to mention my loving dogs who wake me up and provide unconditional love to me every day!
