She holds advanced certifications through the International Sports Science Association, Penn Foster and the CHEK Institute, having completed custom design courses in sport-specific conditioning, fitness and structural assessments, scientific core conditioning, back training and program design for individual body composition and strength training. She uses her knowledge of body mechanics to integrate a unique style of coaching that is rarely found under one umbrella.
She specializes in the metaphysical correlations with physical symptoms, health and athletic ability as well as the sociocultural influences on lifestyle habits and choices. She applies the science of mindfulness to access values and determine specific, attainable goals through a comprehensive system of questionnaires, health assessments, and 1-1 counseling.
