Flexible-Warrior-About-Me-collage

Hi! I’ve been in the fitness industry for over 30 years. As a registered yoga teacher, a holistic health coach and a doTerra wellness advocate, I love working with athletic, Type A’s create a more balanced, pain-free, flexible mind and body by incorporating anti-inflammatory superfoods along with essential oils and simple self-care techniques.

As a health coach, I help to educate and empower my clients to reduce stress and make healthier choices.

After attending The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I published my first book: “Find Your Flexible Warrior: Think, Stretch and Eat for Balance and Resilience.”

I’ve also been fortunate to teach Yoga for Athletes 10 seasons for the Baltimore Ravens football team and also three seasons for the University of Maryland Terrapins men’s basketball team. In addition to private and group sessions for runners, triathletes, golfers, lacrosse and soccer players, I was blessed to help Olympic Pentathlete Suzanne Stettinius stay recovered and flexible while training for five sports leading up to the 2012 London Olympic games.

I LOVE teaching fundraising yoga classes for my favorite charity organizations: BARCS Animal ShelterBelieve Big and the Maryland SPCA.

I was born in Hanover, PA and currently live near Baltimore, MD with my husband Jon and our two rescue pups, Stella and Luna.

After being diagnosed with Lyme disease and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, an autoimmune condition, I learned many self-care techniques to support my healing with yoga, nutrition and essential oils.

I believe that everyone is a warrior on some level… Whether you are a professional athlete trying to recover faster and improve flexibility, a corporate executive wanting to reduce stress or chronic pain, a cancer survivor or a stay-at-home mom trying to stay healthy, calm and energized…

We are all warriors!

The Flexible Warrior approach incorporates self-care, yoga, stress-management and healthy eating to help you find more balance, health and peace. I am not a registered dietician, a liscenced nutritionist or a doctor so I do not diagnose or suggest calorie intake or meal planning. As a health coach, we focus on simple techniques to empower you to make healthier choices.

I became a wellness advocate for doTerra after using and benefiting from their products. If you’d like to learn more about my doTerra team, click here.

I graduated from IIN (The Institute for Integrative Nutrition) in August of 2015. If you feel inspired to make a career health coaching and turn your passion for health and wellness into a profession, you can view IIN’s Youtube Channel and click the link below for a free sample class…
