About our Guest:

I’m a Pain Reduction Coach, Fibromyalgia Warrior, Author, Speaker and Body-Positive Personal Trainer and I’m passionate about teaching people how to live pain-free and learn to love movement. I teach my clients to identify their triggers, reduce stress, set boundaries, and stop caring about what other people. They learn easy-to-implement strategies and tools focusing on mindset, movement and nutrition and can finally move easily throughout their day knowing their bodies will cooperate with them. 

I had a 16-year teaching career and the high stress level put me in bed for 4-months with stress-induced vision loss which made me readjust how I defined “living” and make serious changes to my lifestyle. I don’t want anyone else to succumb to the stress demon and am on a mission to help people effectively manage stress and learn to love moving their bodies in whatever way makes them happy. All of the challenges I have faced has made me realize that self love and body acceptance is key to thriving.
