Your Coach, Joan

I'm passionate about helping you take charge of your health and wellness! When have you had a chance to sit down and focus on your own health? My coaching programs and courses offer you the chance to put your health in focus. With a focus on how the other parts of your life can nourish you, and how only you can determine what's right for you, let's work together to create your healthier future.

My Story

Through my own personal journey, I have found that life is a continual balancing act. It takes a lot of dedication to find what works for each of us. I've gained and lost over 30 pounds twice in my life and I know how much effort it is to get on track and stay there. I believe that it's not only what we eat, but how and why we eat. Getting a grip on that helps set the stage.

I offer programs to help people achieve Food Freedom Naturally through Fast on the First and More Veggies Bootcamp.
