My 30 year career as an Occupational Therapist was both rewarding and eye opening. At one point, I decided that I desperately wanted to become more involved with the preventative side of medicine opposed to the treatment aspect. I started learning as much as I could about different diets and holistic modalities and eventually became a Certified Health Coach.,
It was during these years as a Healthcare Professional that I became interested in learning alternative and complementary methods to expand my tool box to offer my patient's multiple options to address their unique health issues. These new modalities motivated me to transition from being a conventional Healthcare Professional to a career that would allow me to help people prevent disease and/or to use holistic and natural methods to improve their health. The logical transition for me was into Health Coaching, as it incorporates much of what I did as an Occupational Therapist but with a more client centered, lifestyle modification approach.
In 2019, I started my business, Your Health Upgrade, LLC and am now serving a wide range of clients with varying issues but with a common goal of wanting to feel good and live their best life.
Most recently, I became a Brand Affiliate and Independent Distributor for Pharmanex/NuSkin and it has allowed me to expand my practice into a new and exciting direction.
