I'm an independent OPTAVIA Coach™

here is my story

In addition to being a Health Coach for Take Shape for Life, I have over a decade of experience as a certified Life Coach, and academic degrees in Film/Photography, Social Work & Non-Profit Management. Currently, I am working on my PhD Dissertation on the Psychology of Hospitality which explores creating environments that encourage hospitality with others as well as within ourselves (mind, body, and soul). I have been overweight since childhood and have tried Atkins, Weight Watchers & Jenny Craig among others. But it wasn't until TSFL that I was able to conquer my cravings. I always knew the 'right' answer and yet consistently made the wrong 'choices.'This program has relieved me of the psychological struggle which defined my relationship to food. I will forever be grateful to TSFL and Medifast for creating nutritionally balanced meal replacements that serve as a radical yet effective transition between the life I was living, and one of optimal health. It is hard to put into words how enthusiastic I am about this program. Not only am I losing weight (17 pounds in the first 30 days) and looking better, but I feel so energized and enthusiastic (physically and emotionally) that I'm telling everyone I know and anyone I meet. I am confident that the increased energy and optimistic outlook that greets me every morning will keep me on track as a TSFL client and coach.
