What is a health and wellness coach?
A little about me:
I was born and raised in Southern California as the middle child of five. As a child, I struggled with obesity regardless of all the sports and activities I participated in. Prior to PHP, I worked in the food industry from various restaurants to wine country for about 15 years. My artistic outlet is cooking in the kitchen. I love playing with different foods, flavors, textures, and cuisines. My cooking endeavors led to my ambition to be a health coach and teach others how to enjoy food whether it be cooking, meal preparation, and learning how to enjoy life with all the foods! Trust me when I say you can happily enjoy beer, wine, and carbs guilt-free and lose weight!
I played every sport from baseball, football, soccer, track, and field but my heart was always burning for hockey. Playing since I was four years old after high school I decided to take my burning passion to New York in pursuit of a hockey career. After two years of major junior hockey, I played and studied at Hudson Valley Community in Upstate New York where my interest in Kinesiology started. As I learned more about sports nutrition, anatomy and physiology, I was able to apply this knowledge to my teammates and himself and enhance our athletic performance. As my education continued at California State University, San Marcos, I realized this is knowledge and training that will be applied for the rest of his life but also help others live a healthier and happier life.
