I'm an independent OPTAVIA Coach™
here is my story
All my life I have been blessed not to have a serious weight issue, yet I am passionate about helping people lose weight and get healthy because of my experience as a health care practitioner. As a Registered Nurse, working in surgery, I have seen countless of patients who could not be cleared for surgery because of their obesity, and those who did have surgery suffered a myriad of complications. They required more anesthesia and more medications. They had more postoperative pain and were at greater risk of infection and cardio-vascular collapse. As an obstetrical nurse obese patients were at risk of gestational diabetes. C-Section patients suffered the same surgical risks. As a chiropractor I saw a huge difference in patients' progress in their low back pain and knee pain once they lost their excess weight. As an acupuncturist, I treated a myriad of conditions related to obesity such as high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and hormonal dysfunction. In all my careers I have focused on making my patients aware of the crucial importance of healthy habits and life styles. None brought me the results that came from a structured and well supported weight loss and optimal health program such as the one that Take Shape for Life offers. I am very gratified and proud to be a part of this work force that focuses on Wellness in every aspect of the word.
