I love helping people get more of what they want - more health, more energy, more loving relationships, more self esteem, more free time and more happiness.

I love my husband, my family and my friends. I love my team here at ECC. I love reading, spending time outdoors, cooking, and CrossFit. I love babies and kids and everything to do with pregnancy. Growing human beings is a pretty extraordinary thing to do!
