I will work with you mindfully to create small positive steps for lasting behavior change to achieve your goals related to weight loss, relaxation, sleep and energy to name a few. I have an understanding of the Functional Medicine model which is individualized to you, holistic, and a science based approach that is often collaborative among practitioners. We work together to identify the root cause for peoples health issues. These health issues may also stem from lifestyle factors, which can be explored through health coaching. The VIA Character Strengths is a tool I use in Health Coaching. With this tool, we will learn about your top character strengths and how they can be applied to help you reach your goals for optimal wellness. Click on the complimentary VIA survey to know your top character strengths which I will help you enhance toward behaviour changes in your health. Contact me

“We are what we eat” as then “Food is our Medicine”.
This is a value I share as well as listening to your story and addressing your vision. Our daily food choices are important.
This starts with whole, clean foods. I offer a complimentary “Eat a Rainbow” Foods & Benefits Guide. This lists the colorful fruits & vegetables and identifies their health benefits.
This is essential and meant to start you on whole, clean food in your kitchen. In our coaching session, I will also share with you several food plans that provide you with the support you need to make the dietary changes you desire. One of the food plans I share with you is the IFM (Institute for Functional Medicine) Elimination Diet Food Plan. This is often used by Functional Medicine practitioners to reduce inflammation, identify food triggers and reduce toxic burden. Being mindful with proper eating choices and habits promotes weight control, deeper sleep, decreased disease as in diabetes or heart disease and increased energy to enjoy doing more.
Could a raised bed, organic garden benefit you? It has for me! I have made it convenient with four designed blocks which you may purchase. Custom size boards slide into the Garden Blocks. No tools needed. Custom cut boards and getting organic soil is at your local big chain hardware store. Eating healthy by starting with a small garden and knowing it is organic soil is key for your bodies wellness, meaning no pesticides or herbicides which cause inflammation. This is the benefit of buying organic food. I offer you the “Dirty Dozen” & “Clean 15” food list. Contact me to learn more about your personal “Garden Blocks” which I include 1 hour complimentary coaching for your success.

My Health Story …
has always involved being creative and athletics growing up in Cleveland, Ohio. Playing sports from AAU, CYO, and at CH high school to the point of participating in a state track meet to ice skating winters. A lovely influence in my life encouraged my creativity which resulted in a degree from Kent State in Industrial Design. My work was my joy as an International Lighting Designer in the home furnishings market for 20 years. I was fortunate to see the world in this creative profession and embraced how people are individuals as in “1of 1” created art in their mind, body & spiritually unique existence.
During this time I was living in stress and not eating well. I was diagnosed with IBS. I had applied the Macrobiotic diet to my life. I would fast two days prior to flying 22 hours to Asia to avoid digestive issues. A physician I saw wrote one word on a prescription pad “YOGA”. My first yoga class exposed me to guided imagery, breathing techniques and connecting mind, body and spirit along with continued practiced yoga asana’s today. This was the beginning of healing my gut. Thank you Dr. Bruce Cameron.
Decompressing from stress became a value. I moved to Naples, Florida as a fine Artist painting commission artwork through design centers, participating in public art and instructing at Naples Art Association, Von Liebig Art Center. Economy shifts and my curiosity in my health lead me to becoming a nurse. My mother was a nurse and had treated us holistically. I became a member of the American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA). I was part of North Naples Hospital nursing staff which included arts & healing at the main campus. I was honored to be a three year nominee for “Nurse of the Year” by North Naples Hospital and two year nominee for “Nurse Mentor of the Year”.
I created Pinwheel, The Art of Wellness Lifestyle as a Registered Nurse. My vision was to support and educate people how to live a healthy life as well. All of this was evolving when realized through lab work that I was lead toxic from my past industrial design profession. My hair was thinning and falling out, lack of energy, memory issues, atrophy and digestion seemed to stop! I was fortunate to know Dr. David Perlmutter, a board certified neurologist and now author of many New York Best Sellers, “Grain Brain” being one. He replenished my health which conventional medicine failed to do. This put me back on the ice skating today with an Adult Championship Synchronized Team in Tampa. Thank you Dr. David Perlmutter.
Health Coaching was a new and evolving profession. I joined my sister Elizabeth at Duke Integrative Medicine to become an Integrative Health Coach. I was granted Nurse Coach – Board Certified (NC-
My desire is to coach and share my resources in Health & Wellness with the community. I serve my area hospital as an RN and Health Coach to the Bariatric & Metabolic support group.

My intention is health coaching you as a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach (FMCHC). I believe this is the ultimate form and philosophy for our well-
My life story would not be complete without mentioning the immense gratitude for the people that are a part of my story from Cleveland, Brooklyn Heights, Cuyhoga Heights, Independence, Cape Coral, Naples to Tampa.
