Her specialty certifications include program design for seniors, pre and postnatal, and cancer recovery.

Her coaching method is "Explore, Expand, and Evolve into YOU!" She coaches people who want to explore their options, expand their awareness, and evolve into greatness. She specializes in health, wellness, fitness, career transition, entrepreneurship, and personal empowerment.
