After 10 years in commercial real estate + 2 in marketing technology sales, I took a big leap to pursue my true passion: making a healthier diet and lifestyle feel accessible and sustainable - especially for stressed out professionals and those battling chronic or autoimmune disease, hormonal imbalances, mental health issues and disordered eating. As a holistic health coach, speaker and founder of Misfit Wellness, I hope to provide my clients with the resources and support I never had when I was struggling with my health and body image for over 2 decades. Click here to see how I'm making that happen.
More than anything in the world, I want people to feel less alone and more empowered on their health journeys. We ALL struggle with something. There should be no shame in speaking our truth, seeking support and pursuing a better life than one riddled with mental and/or physical health challenges. I hope to remove barriers to support and care through my work with organizations like Bring Change to Mind, and of course here and here and here.
Navigating mental and physical health issues has taught me that protecting our health is the worthiest of causes. We simply cannot be and do and give our best in this world when we are unwell. As someone who has struggled with disordered eating, body image and self esteem issues present since childhood, I am EXTREMELY passionate about helping others discover a more positive, meaningful, loving, accepting relationship with their bodies and selves.
I was born in Tralee, Co. Kerry Ireland, raised in Farmington, CT, went to school in Boston, MA met the love of my life in San Francisco, CA and now live in Bend, OR. I work with coaching clients all around the country and corporate clients in major cities from San Francisco to New York.
My favorite things: laughing with and/or cooking for Kevin, friends & family; my dog's squishy face; travel - especially to off-the-beaten-path places like Belize or Mozambique; hiking coastal trails, picnics in postcard perfect parks, hot sweaty yoga, reading in bed, doing British things while watching British TV with my sister, reading ALL the books, trying new things (like salsa dancing, candle making, pottery or next up: aerial yoga). Oh and dancing! I don't know if I'm ever happier than when I'm dancing.
