Hi! I'm Rebecca, a recovering perfectionist with a love for all things health and wellness.
My health journey and struggle with body image started long before Instagram Stories, Facebook Influencers or even cell phones.
As a teen I suffered with an eating disorder and was hospitalized multiple times from ages 11-13 . With a lot of therapy and family support I was able to overcome it but I don’t believe you ever 100% “recover”. I spent my college years eating very little, determined not to gain "the freshman 15". As an avid runner, I discovered weight training in my early 20’s and fell in love with how strong it made me feel.
After literally decades of chasing perfection, my mind & body have paid a heavy price. I spent so many years obsessed with diet and exercise but neglected the other areas of my life that were impacting my health. I have finally found the courage to live a more balanced life and live for overall wellness instead of for that "perfect physique".
My wellness journey has taken several twists and turns and thanks to the “whole systems” approach of Functional Medicine, I am so much closer to my optimal health than I ever thought possible.
My certifications include: ACE Health Coach, ACE Behavior Change Specialist, Precision Nutrition Level 1(Pn1), HeartMath Interventions and most recently I have earned the title of Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach graduating from FMCA in August 2020.
My home life looks like this: Hubby, Daughter and goofball rescue dog Hank. I am not much of a cook, but I do love to bake and am the first to volunteer if you need cookies for a bake sale. I LOVE a good cup of coffee(or 2, or 3), am not ashamed to say I ❤︎80’s music and I feel most at peace when I am on a beach somewhere.
I would love to help you achieve your optimal wellness and look forward to connecting!
