My Why for Lifestyle as Medicine?
My mission is to make success healthy & happy for you and your family.
I hope to inspire and empower you, the working mum, to foster healthy, sustainable lifestyle changes. Above all, I hope you will show up as the best version of yourself, for yourself first. In addition, I believe you will achieve your success & happiness through health.
Why Lifestyle as Medicine?
What's the deal? After struggling with career-personal life balance during my final years of Sport and Exercise Medicine Fellowship Training, I realized I needed to establish a healthy lifestyle as the foundation for success.
As a result, I began researching, which deepened my knowledge and encouraged me to explore different things. What I discovered inspired me to create a framework that has had a significant impact on not only myself, my family, and my career.
I discovered Lifestyle as Medicine!
I was able to break through what appeared to be an insurmountable barrier in my career by consistently implementing what I learned.
I passed the fellowship exams and was certified as a Specialist in Sport and Exercise Medicine. In addition, I earned the designation of Board Certified Lifestyle Medicine Physician.
Above all, I learned how to make change happen.
So now, not only am I a Sport, Exercise, and Lifestyle Physician, but I am also a game changer – a health coach.
Just for you!
Through personal & professional experiences, I discovered the challenges for working mums. I saw the need to make success healthy and happy.
