I'm an independent OPTAVIA Coach™

here is my story

I have a genuine passion for coaching people. I am a full time Certified Health Coach and love it. In fact, I find that when I'm not coaching someone on the Habits of Health, I'm coaching skiing or soccer depending on the season :-) Most of my Clients have tried several ways to lose weight and get healthy, sometimes dozens of different diets and plans. They've been discouraged, to say the least. It's understandable that you might think that nothing is going to work for you, that your excess weight and health problems are hopeless. To tell you the truth, I've been there. Take Shape For Life is different, because it's about creating real health that lasts. And we do it with three key components. First, Medifast Meals'the meal replacements we use for the weight-loss phase?are a safe, effective, and clinically proven way to lose weight. Second, our Habits of Health system, created by Dr. Wayne Scott Andersen?Co-founder and Medical Director of Take Shape For Life and author of Dr. A's Habits of Health?is a step-by-step method for replacing your unhealthy habits with healthy ones. I use it to improve my nutrition, my sleep, even my stress management. The third unique thing is where I come in. One of the most important factors in whether or not someone can get healthy?and stay that way?is personal support. Actual scientific studies back me up on this. I am not a counselor or a doctor, and I can't tell you what to do about your job, your marriage, or your relationships with friends and family. But I can show you a way of eating,and living that puts you on the path toward Optimal Health. Here's what you can expect from me, in a nutshell: I?ll provide you with one-on-one coaching. I?ll show you the products, programs, and support to help you work toward your health goals, and teach you healthy habits that blend naturally into your lifestyle.
