Poor choices. Distraction. Anxiety and stress were themes in my life that nearly led to a wipeout in 2012. I woke up realizing how far I had fallen off my life path and I had no idea how to restore the sense of drive and purpose I once had. In spite of myself, I had created a successful Acupuncture and wellness business, but as I look back, it came at the high expense of my own physical, mental, and emotional health. Something had to change and that someone was me.
Without a clue of where to begin, I became my own experiment reducing alcohol intake, changing my dietary choices, and practicing meditation/yoga. Gradually, I began to feel better but there was still a piece that was missing. While traveling in 2016, I read Mark Divine’s book, “Unbeatable Mind”. In the book, Mark ties together many of the practices that I had already adapted. What really spoke to me was the framework and structure of a whole system of human development. This map helped me focus and form goals to optimize my performance. UM coaching and training taught me that with the right mindset, focus and teamwork you can achieve and surpass any goal you set for your mind to. It is a system that constantly builds on mastery.
Since 2001, I have worked with patients as an Acupuncture Physician using acupuncture and herbs to restore their health. As I have guided patients, part of the process is coaching them on having better awareness around their choices. All the skills I have honed over years in medicine in combination with UM training has taken my patient outcomes to a new level. As I have moved into my role as a coach, I have witnessed my clients regain their focus, lose weight, conquer their health/fitness goals, and spend more time with their loved ones. Most importantly, have the energy to create and enjoy rich meaningful lives.
My mission is to serve and support UM clients in the pursuit of their personal and professional goals. Ultimately, I hope to provide them with the framework and accountability that will turn their aspirations into reality. Hooyah!
