DanaI’m Dana, married to an amazing man and mother of two adorable children (one boy and one girl).

I have always had a passion for health and wellness and received my BS in Kinesiology from Wheaton College in 2001 and my MA in Exercise Physiology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2003. I am a runner, musician, lover of God, and certified Health Coach. My desire is to help others transform their lives and be in a healthier place. I believe we shouldn’t just try to survive in life, but actually thrive.

I started removing toxic chemicals from my house and defining healthy in different terms starting in March 2014. From growing an organic garden to using chemical-free cleaning and personal products (I even made my own deodorant and hair gel!), I transformed my life on the inside and out.

However, that November, I looked fine on the outside, but I felt gross on the inside. I was tired all the time and craved sugar and salt. My afternoon snack would be a large sweet tea from Chick-fil-A and kettle chips. To other people, I probably looked healthy and fine, but I knew that I needed a change.

A friend shared with me about doing a 5-day RESET and I decided to give it a shot. I might have lost a couple of pounds (no idea since I don’t own a scale), but that wasn’t what really mattered to me. What I noticed was that my inflammation was reduced and the cravings for sugar and salt both disappeared. But even more was what I GAINED: increased energy, motivation, and inspiration.

That was when I develop my passion to help others create sustainable changes, loves their bodies, and thrive and became a Certified Health Coach.

I love getting the opportunity to serve others and help them create a healthier life! If you are looking for ways to look good, feel better, and age gracefully, then you’ve come to the right place. It would be my pleasure to help you along that journey.
