Nutrition

Nutrition Teacher, Educator, Coach

Certified Sports Nutritionist. Almost Complete with my degree in Dietetics from MSU. Began studying Nutrition at age 17 at EMU continued my education at Western Michigan and Michigan State University. When I was 21 years old, I came home from college to help run a family business when my father became ill. I continued my education with Massage School, nutrition courses, personal training courses as well as learning from my own personal training and exercise. I owned and operated Handi Rental ( a contractor and party rental store in Brighton, Michigan) for many years and sold the establishment to Simply Fresh Organic Market in 2016. I began to take my personal nutrition career and massage career into full fruition. I have experience with food sensitivities, gastrointestinal issues, inflammatory issues and autoimmune diseases as well as autism, Lymes disease and diabetes. From family issues to close friends in my community, I have spend years learning how the human body works nutritionally. I have much to learn, yet have helped guide many people on the path back to health. I have been gluten/dairy free since 2009. Have lived a paleo lifestyle. Have lived in ketosis as well as live a macronutrient based lifestyle. My children are 13, 13 and 14 years old and have not had gluten for the past 8 years. They have NEVER had pop. My approach to teaching nutrition is always beginning with the basics and slowly adding on from there. I encourage people to get lab work and testing to gather empirical data before deciding which foods to keep or eliminate in a diet. And If I can not help you, it is always my way to guide you towards a solid source of knowledge that can help you make your next steps. A once very sick and obese woman, I am now a healthy strong lean woman that has a masterful approach to living a health conscious life.

Fitness

Personal Fitness Trainer, Sculptor of Bodies

I am an NPC figure Competitor. I have been an athlete all of my life and began studying fitness and nutrition in college at age 17. I am 41 now. I have 3 grown teenagers, and became very ill after the twins were born. I have lost over 110 pounds over the years post a very severe illness and 3 back to back pregnancies. I began training with various professional and well known athletic trainers to get myself back into fit condition. I spent years understanding macronutrient based diets and learning proper form and function that goes along with training with weights. I have learned well the muscular system through training and through massage school and through personal training certification. My art is combining diet and nutrient timing along with work out modalities to sculpt the body of your desire. My life is dedicated to understanding the intricate workings of the human body and the differences in humans.

Coaching

Coaching, Teaching, Leading

I am a Certified Children of the Earth Instructor which means that I have traveled all over the United States choreographing classes and teaching teams of people the basics of survival in the wilderness. From military personel to security teams, to families and children, the old ways of primitive survival-Shelter, Water, Fire, Food have been part of my teaching and leading scope. I owned and operated a Rental Store in Brighton for 13 years. I was a very successful leader in that field, yet it was not passion. We choreographed and outfitted and set up indoor and outdoor events for parties of up to 800 people, rented large contractor equipment as well as small homeowner equipment. I worked fr the business for 6 years prior to purchase and was Manager for those years until I became co-owner. I sold that business to fully dedicate myself to health conscious awareness and developing my career and legacy from the health care reform point of view. I have been an NRA instructor and have been a teacher in almost every field I have dedicated my attention towards. My coaching style is not for the faint of heart. I expect clear communication. Follow through and dedication to yourself! I have coached many people into aesthetically pleasing physiques to their own liking, greater health, and my coaching skills have helped develop business mindsets, attraction to greater purpose in life as well as gaining clarity and focus of ones overall life goals. My main objective for coaching is always to keep an Eagles Perspective of your goals and help guide the way and assist you to stay the course until you achieve them.
