Interested in learning more about my journey and how I came to be a health coach? (Keep reading…I know you are excited to learn more!) When I was a teenager, I became a vegetarian and in all honesty I didn’t have a clue what I was doing. I also didn’t have anyone to turn to for help. I experienced everything under the sun that every vegetarian faces from those who don’t understand, to those giving misinformation. Where do you get your protein? How about vitamin B-12? You know vegetarians are weak and sickly, you don’t want to be like that do you? This part of my life has been my greatest learning experience. I wanted to be able to have educated conversations about these questions, and to this day I still come across new exciting pieces of information about the benefits of living on a plant based diet.
Food Can Heal or Create Disease
My love for travel and adventure had taken me across the world, but in 2005 I found myself living in New Zealand completing my Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science. It was here in this beautiful country that my true journey to health and wellness began. I attended a lecture given by Sally Fallon, the Weston A. Price Foundation President, and my eyes were truly opened. She spoke of how food could change us structurally and how it could either aid in healing or aid in creating disease. I had to know more, and I have spent the years since reading and studying as much as possible.
Life can be a crazy ride full of unexpected opportunities and in 2011, I found myself face to face with roller derby. It is said that for many, they find roller derby during a transitional period in their lives. That was true for me. It helped me to find my strength and to regain my voice. Derby saved my soul and I have watched it save others. During this time, I was attending practices 3 times a week as well has running and lifting weights almost daily, with Sunday as my day of rest. I started researching the effect foods have on recovery, endurance and oxygen use. I incorporated this knowledge into my training and the results were incredible.
I love to travel, to peruse farmer’s markets, and to cook and eat delicious food. I find there is something soothing, almost tranquil, about chopping vegetable on a bamboo cutting board. The scent and taste of the spices and natural flavors of my recipes bring me pure enjoyment that uplift my spirits.

My Koru – Hei Matau Logo
I am very proud of my logo and it carries with it a lot of meaning. As you learned above, my wellness journey began in New Zealand. I chose to meld together two powerful Maori symbols, the Koru (spiral) and Hei Matau (fish hook). The Koru depicts the opening of a fern frond and represents new beginning, rebirth, personal growth and awakening. The circular shape conveys perpetual movement while the inner coil symbolizes the return to the point of origin. The Hei Matau signifies strength and determination as well as abundance.
In my logo the Koru embraces the Hei Matau, cradling it. This represents all the change that happens in our lives. When we are faced with challenges and opportunities we must come back to our center or origin. It is from our center that we find our strength, our balance and our ability to move forward.
