Personal Summary

Would you like to bring health coaching / nutritionist services to the employees of your company and increase the health and productivity of your corporate environment?  Having a bachelor's degree in theology and certifications as both a health coach and holistic nutritionist, I am interested in pairing my Catholic faith with my work in the health and wellness fields as your company's corporate health coach.  Although I can work with both men and women, I am particularly qualified in the field of women's health.  As a certified NFP instructor and pregnancy health coach, I can help women identify hormonal imbalances and just feel better!  

I am interested in providing remote health coaching services for the employees of a dynamic Catholic company!  Let's talk about the possibilities!
