Being and staying active for myself and my family is my goal, always has been. Health and fitness are the cornerstones of my life  and have been for as long as I can remember.

I prioritize a work life balance and try to help others realize that goal. I know it’s not always easy, with the high demands on our time from work, children, school, friends, and countless other things. I think if we're flexible we can find creative ways to fit exercise, healthy eating, and time for people and giving back into our lives.

For me having a good plan is key to keeping balance in my life. I pack a lunch for work every day (helps keep healthy options at my fingertips), I take early morning classes at my local gym to push me harder (I get a discount on my membership through the Beacon Wellness Network), and I get outside all year to kayak, bike, snowshoe, and ski.

I also place a high value on maintaining friendships and giving back to organizations that reflect what’s important to me like the Orono Bog Boardwalk, Safe Medicine Disposal, and the American Red Cross Sound the Alarm campaign.

As a wellness coach, I focus on educating and encouraging people to make well-informed choices to improve their quality of life and live a healthier lifestyle, I believe I’m living proof it’s possible!
