Board Certified Health Coach – USANA

40 years ago you might have met me walking down the street in a t-shirt that read “FOOD for PEOPLE not for PROFIT.”  My purpose is to bring light to important health and wellness issues.

I continuously seek higher standards for what I put in my body and out into the world.  This has been a constant theme in my personal and professional life with a successful career in law, education, entrepreneurship,  and now,  health and wellness.

I experienced a personally profound time when my daughter became ill and was misdiagnosed and improperly treated for over 17 years. This led to my immersion in learning what truly nourishes and heals our bodies.

I became a Board Certified Health Coach and graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and partner with the highest rated nutrition company, USANA.

It is my passion to help you TAKE BACK YOUR HEALTH into your own hands.

Angelic Life Coach

As a young child I was fascinated with angels and in my late 30’s I  could communicate and hear their messages for other and for myself.  I found I was channeling their messages. Over the course of two years, I began channeling their energy for writing and for my book: Living in the Heart Place with Your Angels: Daily Angelical Whispers throughout the Year. As an Angelical Life Coach, I  am able to learn through accessing your angels and show how creative and intuitive you truly are. Co-owner of Off the Cuff ezine,  I am also privileged to work as a medium, an Akashic Records practitioner, and a Reiki Master.

Aaron Stark

Author, Speaker at I was almost a School Shooter

We needs to embrace the outcast. Show love to the ones whom you think deserve it the least.
Aaron Stark grew up in a very chaotic and violent household. While his mother tried to take care of his brother and him, she, too was a victim of their father, a violent man. His stepfather was not much better and replaced outright horror with drugs and crime. By 14, Aaron was kicked out of his house and by 11th grade, he was a quiet, sensitive, obese social outcast with an affinity for poetry and comic books. He had no home and oftentimes, slept outdoors. The isolation and bullying eventually became unbearable and at 16, having already dropped out of high school, Aaron reached out for help.
