Work Place Wellness
In addition to my career in the Restaurant industry, I previously worked in a call center for Verizon Wireless before pursuing a career in nutrition and wellness. Whether I was in the corporate world or service industry, I learned how bringing healthy food to work helped maintain my energy levels during the day, that walking outside or doing a quick flight of stairs during my 10 minute breaks allowed me to release stress in my neck and soreness in my back from sitting for hours and that working out before or after my shift could make or break my day. The more I paid attention to my own well-being and health, I noticed that I was less stressed, happier and felt better overall. When I felt well, my work productivity improved.
Now, as a Certified Holistic Health Coach and Corporate Wellness Expert, my mission is to make wellness an essential and important part of the workplace. With my support, employees have better energy levels, reduced stress levels, and learn how to take care of themselves during a busy work day.
As you are aware, health benefit costs continue to rise. In the past, employers have tried to lessen these costs by adopting managed care strategies, shifting costs to employees, and reducing benefits. These solutions are no longer effectively controlling costs and are depressing the value of health benefits for employee recruitment and retention. An alternative strategy to contain costs is to improve the health of employees so that less medical care is required. According the Harvard Business Review, every dollar invested in employee wellness programs can yield up to $6 in health care savings. That goes right to your company’s bottom line!
By providing education to employees specifically on how to improve eating habits, reduce stress, and increase healthy lifestyle activities like exercise, your organization will experience the following benefits:
- Reduction in chronic disease – up to 80%!
- Decreased Healthcare costs

As a Health Coach, I provide group workshops that educate your employees on how to improve their health, choose healthier food, and take actions toward living a more balanced life.
Additionally, my Work Place Wellness Programs include One-on-One or Group Nutrition Counseling, Green Smoothie Demos, Office Challenges, and Group Programs to support and inspire improved health in your business.
