I'm excited you're here!  My passion is supporting all types (type 1, 1.5, 2 and gestational diabetes) of diabetics like you throughout various stages of life. Whether transitioning: through a new diabetes diagnosis, mapping your own health journey, managing dietary challenges, then you're in the right place to gain control of diabetes. 


I've lived with insulin dependent diabetes (type 1) for 38 years. Through personally understanding the daily challenges of this chronic disease, I decided to specialize in this area to help others achieve full health.  I love to support clients in balancing their nutrition, exercise and lifestyle routine. ­ Drawing on my expertise in life and in the field, I understand what you're going through and work to help you make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.

I am a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach trained at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition  (IIN) in New York City and certified through the International Association for Health Coaches (IAHC).  I continued my education with IIN and received my Hormone Health Certification to assist clients moving through various hormonal stages and diabetes self management. I love to encourage and support my client's fitness goals as a  A.F.A.A. certified personal trainer.  In the 4 years working as health coach, I'm proud of supporting my clients success stories.

My husband David & I have fun stand up paddle boarding, exploring the outdoors and stay active with our dog Kona in our beautiful hometown St. Augustine, Florida. We are active members of Good News Church and host a weekly small group bible study. Our 23 yr. old daughter Sarah lives close by attending nursing school.
