a different kind of business investment

Do you truly want to create a culture of well-being? For your staff to actually live healthier, happier and less stressed lives for good?

You know it’s good for morale, productivity, and company growth but lack the time and personnel to tackle it yourself?

Maybe you’re not sure where to start because it seems like such a big undertaking or perhaps you just see a few gaps that need care and attention.

That's exactly why businesses and teams have trusted me, and why I can take your employees' health, happiness, and leadership to the next level.

As a life and health coach I help businesses and teams effectively:

  • Learn sustainable healthy lifestyle habits

  • Develop high-functioning, resilient leaders

  • Rethink ‘stress’ and other success and health blockers

  • Up-level employee morale, compassion and tolerance

  • Shift mindsets for more productive and useful thinking

  • Lower the cost of turnover, absenteeism, and presenteeism

I’m an energized connector between you and your staff who marries your vision and goals to the people ready to change. Count on contagious passion, real, relatable and science-backed coaching, and lasting, positive results.

I started as a personal trainer in 2009, spent decades before that doing life all wrong, and then transformed it all. The result? A powerful, real, and relatable style of coaching that up-levels lives, minds, and bodies for good.

I offer powerful programming for your budget and timeline — from on-site fitness programs for lasting lifestyle and health shifts, to half day workshops, or multi-week deep dives for dramatic shifts.

Let's discuss your goals, timeline, and plan.

  • Staying a healthy weight without willpower

  • Re-thinking stress for good

  • Creating time vs spending time

  • Proven mindset tactics that work

  • Motivation & courage to ‘feel like it’

  • Leadership for every level

I love taking typical topics and twisting them around so people receive fresh insight, new 'ah-ha’s', and empowering ways to think about their life and circumstances differently and for good. I connect with participants because I personally experienced and overcame these, and many more, health and life struggles.

My courses are a combination of tough love, accountability, supportive guidance, and fun (yes, fun!) that catapult participants to their next levels of awesome!


On-site physical fitness classes for all levels and abilities.

I’ve been an NSCA Certified Personal Trainer since 2009. My classes are always fun, varied, safe and perfect for over-all toning and weight loss. I'm big on correct form, encouraging modifications as necessary, and promoting supportive and non-judging environments.

No space? No worries. When there's a will there's a way. I once trained an office staff under a carport for an entire year. Participants had tremendous and lasting results. (They didn't have locker rooms or shower facilities either!)


Contests and challenges that encourage wide participation and focus on properly educating participants to continue their journey the right way after the contest is over. 


Workshops that educate, motivate, and encourage. Typical topics with an atypical spin.

  • Mindset Mojo for Over-Thinkers. Learning how to up-level your mindset gives you more time, more results, and more happiness. 

  • The Positive Way to Lasting Health. Approaching your wellness goals the right way produces positive and lasting results. 

  • Difficult Conversations Made Easier. Learn how to be comfortable being uncomfortable, the real reasons why you avoid the hot seat, and what to do about it.

  • Create More Time. We get to the bottom of why you think you don't have enough of it now and then teach you how to create more of it! 

  • Stop Stressing! It’s impacting your relationships, health, and happiness. Learn a keystone habit and tools that really keep you calm and productive no matter what obstacles you're faced with. 

  • Getting Unstuck.  We discuss the top reasons most people get stuck from achieving their goals and then arm you with a practical action plan that gets you moving forward again.

Consulting and program implementation. You're ready for a culture of health and happiness but need some guidance. Let's collaborate to create a plan, budget, strategy, and results.

No time to implement? No problem. I'm happy to help with all aspects of your program to ensure consistency, follow-through, and results.
