Health coaching is a career pivot for me.
I’ve worked as an illustrator/designer since the late 80’s—self-employed since 1995. Much of that work has been with clients in the health field. I have also created and run a not-for-profit cycling education program built on principles of behavior change, and a passion for empowering people.
In 2015, I employed those behavior change principles to reclaim my own health from a decade of weight gain and poor habits. I transformed a daily drinking habit into a healthy, minimalist relationship with alcohol. I restored the body composition I had enjoyed in my 20s. This transformation inspired people around me. I discovered that most of all I wanted to empower others to succeed in realizing their own health goals.
I have become increasingly frustrated with an expensive healthcare system that doesn’t have the incentive structure to help people prevent chronic disease or optimize their health. I feel drawn to be part of the solution. I believe health coaching is a key part of that.
As many others have experienced, the pandemic provided an opportunity to reevaluate and refocus. I decided to enroll in the ADAPT Health Coach Training Program. I had been eyeing it since 2018, after reading Unconventional Medicine by Chris Kresser. This course has been transformational, truly one of the best experiences of my life! Now I am ready to bring its value to you.
