What shaped your attitude towards birth? My mother spoke to me about birth from a young age. She had two non medicated births and I believe that planted a seed. Being in the fitness industry, this created a more holistic mindset and awareness of the body. While I was training, one of my clients was a doula and she began asking me powerful questions while I was pregnant with my first. With her encouragement, I transferred to an amazing midwifery practice and took a birth education class from the founder of Birth Boot Camp and the rest is history. My three births, two in a hospital and one at home, have given me a unique perspective on birth as a professional. I have gained so much knowledge. They have taught me how we need to be intentional with our nutrition, exercise, and self-care and how each impacts not only our pregnancy and birth, but also our postpartum healing and recovery.
Why did you become a trainer and health coach? Studied Psychology in school with a focus on Child and Family Development, Nutrition, and Exercise. Post graduation, I achieved my personal training certification for fun while working at Emory. After Emory, I found a job in corporate America and quickly decided that was not for me and took a job training full time for seven years. After training thousands of sessions and working with hundreds of people I kept coming across individuals with a variety of severe health conditions and I wanted to be able to assist these people in a more in depth manner. So, after my first son was born I went back to school for health coaching and after graduation I opened up my own private health coaching practice.
