I’m proud to be a West Texas native. I went to college in Houston and I learned all about how nutrition and metabolism affect mental and physical performance as a collegiate All American in the high jump. I graduated from Texas Chiropractic College in 1989.
I have over 34 years of healthcare experience in West Texas. I’m fortunate to have served generations of families in my career spanning over decades. With that experience, I’ve seen firsthand the serious effects that excess weight has on a body both short-term and long-term.
In the beginning of my career I was mainly focused on how excess weight affects backs and musculoskeletal complaints. Back then, when asked for weight loss advice, I gave my clients the same old useless weight loss advice handed down through generations of healthcare. It didn’t work then and it doesn’t now. It was so frustrating!
As my years of experience progressed, I came to realize the long-term effects of excess weight as I saw once vibrant people living with destroyed dreams because of the physical and mental demise of a body overloaded.
This became my driving force behind developing our Metabolic Rescue Program™. Nothing puts pressure on your body like excess weight. Current studies show that approximately 80% of chronic disease is either directly or indirectly related to a person being overweight or obese.
There is no greater joy than helping others on their weight loss journey and seeing the transformation that takes place in their lives. All of my experience, knowledge, and passion, are committed to helping you achieve your health and wellness goals so that you can live your best life!
I’ve been in healthcare for over 37 years and during about half of those years I was overweight.
I weighed myself nearly every morning and thought about my weight EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
I hated being fat. I didn’t want to have my picture taken or see myself in photos, I despised shopping for clothes, and I didn’t like the way my body felt.
Worse yet, I felt like a poor example for my healthcare clients.
It wasn’t like I didn’t try to lose weight. I worked out most days of the week despite working long hours. Heck, I trained for over a year to bicycle all the way from San Francisco to Los Angeles in a week’s time…and I was still fat!
I tried about every diet out there and still failed. As you probably know, failing after putting your best effort forward is incredibly demoralizing.
Four years ago I knew we got it right with our Metabolic Rescue Program when I lost 50 pounds easily and brought my body mass index (BMI) to normal and STAYED THERE. Wow, what a great feeling! Completely life changing!
I’m also a cancer survivor and let me share with you that journey is much easier when you aren’t overweight.
I believe that losing weight is the single most powerful thing you can do to improve your life and I LOVE helping people change their lives by reaching their weight loss goals.
I’ve studied diet and nutrition at a high level for over 30 years.
I graduated from Life Chiropractic College-West in 1986 with academic honors, the clinical excellence citation and was later awarded Alumna of the Year. I maintained the prestigious CSCS designation from the National Strength and Conditioning Association for several decades. I have taught postgraduate education to healthcare providers across the United States and Europe. I previously served as a speaker/educator for the American Diabetes Association.
I look forward to helping you achieve your weight loss goals so that you can start living the life that you’ve imagined!
