Scottsdale, AZ 85255
Born and raised in a small suburb of Cleveland, Ohio, I was once the owner of a renowned graphic design company, Rose Advertising, Inc. In 1996, I successfully sold the business and decided to build a career within the fitness industry. I also discovered that the challenge of ‘starting over’ career wise wasn’t the only thing she had to face. Years of drug and alcohol abuse was taken its toll on my body.
At 43, her life changed. After decades of alcoholism and drug addiction she was able to get clean and sober. I moved forward with her professional career within the health and wellness industry, yet I felt like I was always sick. I suffered with bouts of depression, ongoing digestive problems, and fatigue.
Seeking answers, I worked with a naturopathic doctor in Scottsdale, AZ. Together, we addressed a long list of food allergies and food sensitivities, a severe case of Adrenal Fatigue, and a really bad bout of digestive Candida (a dangerous fungus that lives for sugar on sugar).
Today, at the age of 61, I live in the SOLUTION. I walks the walk I talk about. I knows what it is like to want to be healthy and fit, and how to overcome those obstacles in the real world and alongside some pretty serious medical issues. Armed with a mission to help others, it became vital that I tell my story of recovery and then health discovery.
I've studied nutrition for 10 yrs. prior to my holistic wellness coach certification. For the past 21 yrs. I have helped men and women across the country to overcome their fitness and health challenges while improving their confidence and commitment to living a healthier life through educational programs and 1-1 coaching.
LIVEFIT is my Signature Service, my brain child. To LIVEFIT is to consider and honor the need of the entire person, physically, emotionally, spiritually, socially, and economically. Today, I am the author of a popular smart phone APP, four fitness / health books, including her best seller: “All Natural Sugar Detox”.
I currently reside in Scottsdale, AZ with her goldendoodle, Dharma.
