I am professional, passionate and purposeful about my family, my life and my job. Married for 35 years with 11 children and 8 grandchildren ( currently). I have always had a passion for nature and healthy living. Losing both parents to strokes and heart disease fueled my desire to learn more about nutritional science and how the power of food reduces our risk for disease and helps us to live preventively. Becoming a Nutraseutical Rep with NSA, the maker of Juice Plus+, and also becoming a Certified Health Coach through the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute has allowed me to learn valuable health information to change not only my families health, but the health of those I've been privileged to touch.
