MEET YOUR COACH! I thought it was about time I formally introduced myself. I probably don’t fit your stereotypical view of a “nutrition coach”... I am pretty irreverent at times, I fall over when I try new yoga poses, I sweat like a beast, I am the clumsiest person you will meet, and wow… sometimes I indulge in "naughty foods"... Why am I telling you this?
Because, at the end of the day, I am just a real person, doing real work, with other real people.
What I also am, however, is bloody passionate about health and wellness. I live it and I breathe it.
It wasn’t always that way, however. It took a decade of heavy smoking, years of drinking and a lifetime of eating garbage. I was physically and mentally shot, suffering from immense anxiety, depression and lethargy. I tried a fair few online health guides and 12 week transformation challenges, you know, all of the “appealing” quick fixes… unsuccessfully might I add. The REAL change came when I started a journey of self-education and realised that THIS was how people can truly be empowered to make lasting, positive changes, both physically and mentally. Education is key. Prior to studying with the Function Nutrition Academy, I was a high school English teacher for many years, so my values around education having the potential to change lives runs pretty deep in my veins.
I don’t want to work with you just for a before and after photo, but for a before and after life. The life before light bulb moments, and the life after. A life where you don’t ever need to fork out money to sign up for a program again, because you have the knowledge to write your own damn program!! A life where you will be equipped with all of the tools YOU NEED to bring out whatever badass life you want, the life that is just waiting there under the surface, already within you, ready for you to say “I’m coming for you”. That is why I chose the name Within, because this IS NOT about changing WHO YOU ARE, this is about making changes to bring out the potential that is ALREADY WITHIN YOU.
Wishing you wellness from within,
Functional Nutrition Coach
