My degree in Physical Education and Health allowed me to teach and coach high school girls for ten years. That experience also gave me a desire to assist others to be the best they could be physically, emotionally, and spiritually. To fulfill that desire beyond school teaching, I have  been a Personal Wellness Coach for the last fourteen years.

Since starting Your Wellness Lifestyle, I have taken a number of continuing education courses to become certified as a Weight Management Advisor.

I have a passion for working with motivated clients- all ages, all walks of life, all around the world- so that they can enjoy optimal wellness, participating in their choice of activities with energy and passion. Teaching and coaching are activities that I have always enjoyed, whether in the home, in the classroom or on the court or field. I experience tremendous personal satisfaction in hearing from my clients about their improved quality of life, both in health and finances.

I am very thankful for my immediate family (husband Ed, two sons Daniel and Nathan, their wives and children) as well as my  extended family, who are very supportive of my business.

My flexible schedule has allowed me to be  involved in my sons’ lives, ‘without regard for scheduled vacation days.’ Travel with my husband has also been ‘without regard for scheduled vacation days.’ Yeah! As a family, we welcomed our first grandson in July, 09, our second in November, 2011, and our third in  Seattle in April, 2012. Having consistent time with my grandsons in spite of distance and  ‘without regard for scheduled vacation days,’ is a major reward of time freedom.

The opportunity to have a home business in the expanding wellness niche was extremely appealing, and I’ve been learning and growing with this industry for the last fourteen years. It’s personally rewarding to be part of an industry, and a company, Mannatech, Inc., that expects you to be your best- and provides the tools and experiences to do just that!
