In New England we have a saying, “Little snow big snow, big snow little snow.” When you see tiny snowflakes falling (rather than the big fluffy ones) you’re guaranteed to get significant accumulations…those little flakes really pile up! I love this saying as a metaphor for achieving life goals...small, steady progress (although it might not feel like it) will lead to big results. I know this is true because I’ve lived it myself.
Over the past decade, I’ve been on a continuous path of transformation as I learn more about health and wellness. Through little steps and small changes, I gradually created healthier habits which, in turn, have positively impacted nearly all aspects of my life in a big way — from couch potato to running ultra-marathons. Positive change is 100% possible!
I am a Certified Health Coach and licensed massage therapist. I’m also finishing up a master’s degree in Health and Wellness Management. As a health coach I aim to meet you wherever you are in your journey and provide the support, encouragement, accountability, and resources you need to achieve your goals, however big or small.
When I’m not working, I enjoy trail running, trying new creations in the kitchen, reading, daydreaming, and exploring the woods and mountains of New England with my husband Sean and our scruffy dog Oliver.
Recently, it was suggested that I vastly expand my bio and share my personal wellness story in more detail. I generally avoid sharing excess personal information because, well, it’s personal…and I can’t imagine anyone would want to read it. But I thought about it and realized that when I relate to someone else’s story I feel more connected and grateful the person shared it. So, I decided to be brave enough and share my journey (embarrassing truths and all!) with you…
