My name is Maria, I am a National Board-Certified Health and Wellness Coach. I have been a health coach for eleven years. As an advocate door health and wellness, I believe that we should all live an energized, passionate and healthy life. A healthy lifestyle includes exercise, nutrition, healthy sleep patterns, and positive support from family and friends. I am Certified in Plant-Based Eating, Gut Health, Hormone Health, and Whole Person Health. I have experience working with Functional Medicine and Integrative Pain Management. I specialize in gluten-free and sugar-free baking. I also have a love for cooking and furthered my education by attending several weeks of organic cooking school in Florence, Italy, subsequently receiving a Certification in Organic Italian Cooking. My goal as a health coach is to work with individuals by helping them adopt healthy lifestyle changes. As an NBC-HWC I hav found that clients have better outcomes when they are active participating in improving their health and wellness. I believe that we should never compromise when it comes to our health, if you want to live an amazing life, you need to get out there and make it happen.
