Designations + Certifications

I do value the degrees and certifications I have obtained over the years.  They have molded me into the person I am today and there is so much to be said about all mediums of learning.  I have gone back and forth on college and online and I love them both for different reasons.  Below are programs I am currently enrolled in as well as designations I already have.


The Institute for Functional Medicine

CE Certificate of Completion - April 9, 2017

Introduction to Functional Nutrition: Clinical Solutions for Addressing the Underlying Causes of Disease

Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach(Candidate) - Goal Certification Date January 2018

This is one of the Health Coach Programs I am currently enrolled in.  I joined the February 2017 Class and am so pleased with my decision to pursue a Certification with this company.  I love all the resources, the knowledge, the exercises, the reading, the videos, and the other folks I am learning with.  This program is a year long program and I plan to obtain State Board Certification in 2018.  If you would like to learn more about this program, follow this link to check it out!  

Functional Medicine Coaching Academy, Inc.

Certified Health Coach - Health Coach Institute - July 2017

This is the other Health Coach Program I am enrolled in as well.  I started this one end of January.  Love, love, love this one too!  They are different in their focus and approaches.  This program is great at looking at the Holistic View of making changes and helping with actual ideas of how to implement those changes.  The program helps you get set up by teaching you a 90 day coaching method and some practical business advice and tools.  I really do love this program, approach, teaching and skills labs I do with many others around the country.  

If you click the link below, and end up signing up for the program, then we both benefit. You get $500 off your tuition and I get a referral bonus.

ACE Certified Personal Trainer - March 2017

ACE Integrated Fitness Training®Model, created to help health and fitness professionals deliver the type of individualized programs people need to adopt long-term, healthy behaviors.

CU in Denver

Received my undergraduate degree here.  I loved this school and being in the city there.  BSBA.


MBA - Regis University

Operations Management, Graduated 1997

So grateful for the advanced degree I was afforded while working at USAA.  While it is a "piece of paper", I've also come to realize it's so much more than that in experience, social interactions, opening the mind to possibilities.  I am truly grateful I have this experience now.




ICHWC - Goal Certification Date: June 2018

International Consortium for Health & Wellness Coaching

After I have completed my 2 Health Coaching programs I'm in this year, I plan to obtain my National Board Certification in June 2018.

The objective of the certification is to provide a minimum standard and measure of foundational competencies: the knowledge, tasks and skills essential to the practice of health and wellness coaching. Eligible individuals can now apply to become a National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC).
