I am a highly sensitive peri/menopausal woman!  I am happy, healthy and thriving and want to get you there too.

My dedication to a healthy lifestyle has brought me through challenges toward a life that I love!  I am more energetic, more joyful, and more prosperous than ever.  I can show you how to implement the same healthier habits in your life to reduce inflammation and boost every part of your health.

I am a mom of three living in Southern Texas.  I enjoy reading, gardening and anything that has to do with food!


I was a health enthusiast and director of my family's health.  I thought I had life under control.  Until I... didn't. 

After a difficult divorce, I was looking for a way ahead.  A coach told me I needed a "comeback story" and a "new identity."  I didn't know what that could be.  How does one reinvent themselves?

Under the time pressure of being a single parent and with my dedication to nutrition for my family, I sought high and low to find a new, easier way to live healthily (and a new way to care for myself under an increased level of stress).

A bright, new way!

Then I finally found my purpose and my direction in sharing clever solutions and the tools needed to live an inflammation reducing lifestyle.

My cookbook, Shortcut Real Food: 20-minute meals, was born from my new situation.  Its ideas and methods were a revelation and the answer to my cooking stress.  It is now my comeback story (it would never have happened if I hadn't been down) and a new identity - health coach, author, and blogger.   My cookbook and I have even appeared on television!  

That coach's words were the catalyst.  An expert often can see what we cannot see beyond.  Let me be the catalyst in your life.

"Stepping onto a brand-new path is difficult, but not more difficult than remaining in a situation, which is not nurturing to the whole woman.”
-Maya Angelou

I live for cold weather.  I get to wear my favorite, cozy jackets.  It's a rare treat, as I live in South Texas. 


I am addicted to gardening.  I have herb, vegetable, and flower gardens.


I ballet dance in my living room when I am alone.  #embarrassing


I still wear Birkenstocks and side-part my hair and use the cry-laugh emoji.
