Seasoned Professional with a Blended Background
As a strategic communication consultant, National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC), Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach (FMCHC) and HeartMath Certified Professional, I have blended experience in both business and science-based health coaching.
I’ve been a consultant and business coach for more than 25 years and have been involved with the Institute for Functional Medicine since 2007. Over the years my family and I have experienced profound health and healing experiences as patients of functional medicine doctors. On this path, I’ve become a passionate advocate for taking a holistic, systems-based approach to help people break through barriers, optimize function and achieve greater health and well-being in every facet of life.
The common thread throughout my career has been helping people connect more effectively – both in their communication with others and in discovering deeper connections within themselves. I’m thrilled to be a part of the team at Imagine Your Health because I’ve experienced firsthand the value of MJ’s Genspire approach. I feel deeply aligned with the wonderful blending of practical experience and the science + art of coaching to support successful and effective life transformation.
Transformative Health Coaching
As a Genspire coach, I enjoy helping people build sustainable flow and reach their fullest potential while creating the life of their dreams. Coming from the high-stress, high-tech business world myself, I understand how driving toward success in one area of life can throw other areas out of balance. This is what drew me to obtain the highest practitioner level certification for HeartMath. Their tools and system are scientifically validated tools for optimizing the heart-brain connection to help transform stress, build resilience and achieve higher levels of performance.
Specific areas of coaching include:
- Optimizing brain-body connection for better performance
- Stress transformation and building resilience
- Food and healthy eating
- Exercise and movement
- Sleep and relaxation
- Relationships and communication
- Menopause and midlife support
- Enhancing strengths and joy
I’m also trained in Dr. Dale Bredesen’s protocols for brain optimization and prevention of cognitive decline, and I help successful mid- and late-career professionals maintain their high levels of performance as they extend their careers and maximize their retirement.
As a strategic communication consultant, coach and writer, I work with clients in a variety of industries, non-profit organizations and companies of all sizes, advising on strategies for more effective interpersonal communication in the workplace, corporate communications and public relations.
Business consulting, writing and coaching/training work includes:
- Executive performance and stress management
- Effective communication and team dynamics
- Message development and strategy
- Content development, writing and editing (websites, social media, blogs, articles and executive ghostwriting
- PR, media and analyst relations
- Speaker presentation preparation and media coaching
