We can’t control many of the challenges to our health in this field right?

Disrupted or lack of sleep will always be an issue Stress definitely isn’t going anywhere when crisis is our calling Rushed and missed meals comes with the territory

BUT . . .

The more variables that we can’t change The more important it becomes to support them with ones we can!

How I can Help

AboutMeImage

I have been working as a Nationally Registered Paramedic for 16 years and with the Fire Department as a Firefighter-Paramedic for 12 of them.

I get the sleep deprivation and leaving a shift feeling like half of yourself

I get the rushed eating, missed meals or desire to face plant into donuts and endless coffee after a long shift when your running on empty and don’t feel like eating “healthy”

I have experienced the acute stress response of a structure fire tone or cardiac arrest at 3:00 am

The invisible weight you carry on your shoulders (the stress of vigilance) that never lets you actually truly rest when you’re on duty. I understand how hard it can be to come home after all of that only to have to put on your other hat as mom, wife or other caretaker often getting little to no time to decompress . I know what it’s like to be young in my career feeling invincible then getting older in my career and feeling the toll it all takes mentally and physically

“ I Know you because I am you! ”

So what makes me qualified to address Health & Fitness?

I am a Fitness & Nutrition super Nerd which has lead me down a very “dynamic” path of learning over the years

(my nice way of saying I made lots of mistakes)

Besides my educational background as a certified Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Tactical Strength and Conditioning PT

I have experimented with various training plans and styles

I have gained excess weight and lost it multiple times

I have looked fit but wasn’t truly healthy

I have had two kids while on the Fire Department and only to come back stronger than when I started in my career

I have been humbled through every experience but determined to find better ways to reach my goals each time

All of this has built a deep understanding for a full circle holistic approach to reaching health and fitness goals in a healthy way that is sustainable for the long term while addressing the unique needs of the female First Responder.

Feeling guilty or weirded out by the thought of making yourself a priority?

breakingnews-01

Breaking News: We suck at this

It is our nature to put others before ourselves. That’s what we sign up for right?

Risk a lot to Save a lot and We accept those risks

Even though that mentality is meant for extreme circumstances all too easily, it becomes our mentality all of the time. We even wear it as a badge of honor in many ways

BUT

What we don’t talk about is how placing yourself last
It is not a place to serve From

matches

Chronically putting ourselves last leads to self-neglect, which turns into poor health and eventually Burnout

It’s just not sustainable
Not in this line of work or any for that matter

You wouldn’t keep writing checks on a negative bank account but we find no issue doing that to ourselves

There isn’t enough coffee or jokes to substitute self-care but we keep trying

Here is your Permission Slip

Its ok to take care of you with the same dedication you would a complete stranger

Not only is it ok, its ethical and its Necessary

Self Care

Many of us know we need to take better care of ourselves but we have no idea where to start

Maybe you have tried it all before only to fall back into old patterns and end up back at square one only more frustrated

What’s Included In Program

One On One Coaching Calls, Goal Setting And Check Ins

This is where I really get to know you! We will talk about your challenges, goals and needs. Here we will evaluate feedback from your intake forms and together we start creating a clear vision of the future and the plan that supports your vision. As we go along through weekly check-ins and monthly calls, adjustments are made as needed to keep that momentum and progress going

In Depth Nutritional
Assessment & Plan

We start by getting a good look into any foundational health imbalances and nutrient deficiencies that may be occurring. From there a Nutrition protocol will be formulated around supporting those foundations while addressing any health goals you may. Everyone’s ideal diet is going to look different. It’s about finding what works best for you.

Custom Training Plan

With your goals in mind I formulate a fitness plan that aligns with what you enjoy! While there are some core themes we always want to address in any fitness plan I want you to love your workouts! Your custom fitness plan is meant to work in harmony with your nutrition plan. No more running in circles and not getting results.

Mindset Coaching

Often the missing link, Mindset really is the foundation for which you build your nutrition, fitness and health. I can give you the best personalized nutrition and training plan, but if your mind is not on board, you’re not getting far. Now more than ever before, evidence is pouring out on the power on the mind body connection. Our thoughts alone can change and affect our physiology! Mindset is more than cultivating empowering self-talk, but also plays a starring role in stress management. Developing techniques to tap into mindfulness as well as building your very own mindfulness toolbox will help restore some balance to the high stress states we live in as first responders.

Accountability & Personal
Cheering Squad

Have you ever tried to share a positive change you want make with your family or friends only to have them just suck the life out of your happy vibes? This happens a lot actually for various reasons. That is why it’s important especially when starting out to have a cheering squad. I may be not be a whole squad but I’ve got enough positive vibes to push your way to feel like it. I want to hear about all your wins big small and everything in between! I am also here for support when you are struggling. I offer no judgement and only share guidance when asked. Sometimes all we need is an empathetic witness not more advice. I am also here to cultivate accountability. Yes ultimately we are accountable to ourselves but having that external source to report progress too has real -fire under the butt- power. When we have become accustomed to letting ourselves down it can help to have someone outside of ourselves to feel inspired by until we restore that inner trust with ourselves.
