I’m a girl born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, who had a stay at home mom, and a dad who worked as a CPA. My parents stayed together their entire marriage until my father passed on November 29, 2011 from Alzheimer’s. I have been living in Dallas, Texas, but still make regular visits home to see family and friends, and of course, to enjoy the food!
My career started as a retail pharmacist, which I did for 21+ years. It has given me great insight into the healthcare field. I am passionate about the human body and enjoy helping people and being of service.
I had the opportunity to interact with a wide variety of people as a pharmacist, and am forever grateful to have had those opportunities. I learned so much! But the ones that touched me the most were the ones who I got to know on a deeper level, those that opened up and shared their lives with me.
In 1997, during my time as a pharmacist, I had the opportunity to experience what it was like to be a patient. I was diagnosed with a pituitary adenoma (a type of brain tumor). That was an enormous turning point in my life, as you might imagine. A year later, I was fortunate enough to have it removed, and learn it was benign!
I was so intrigued by the human body that I decided to become a Licensed Massage Therapist, graduating from Texas Massage Institute in 1999. I learned even more about the human body, and began a journey into more of a holistic approach to life that I had never really encountered before. I continued to practice pharmacy, but my life had never been the same. I knew in my gut there was more.
After many years of being single, I finally found and married my best friend and soul mate, Charlie Clemmer, on May 15, 2011. Well… actually, he found me, but that’s another story! Because of him, I am able to live a life, I had truly only dreamed of! I was able to quit my job and follow whatever my little heart desired!
I am continually seeking more opportunities of personal growth and development, and desire to have a a positive impact in the lives of others. In 2013, I became a Certified Holistic Health Coach. I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I was trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studying a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. Drawing on this knowledge, I help individuals create a completely personalized “roadmap to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals.
In 2014, my life started shifting, yet once again! (It’s called midlife!!) I I became a Reiki Master and a Certified Angel Card Reader. This comes from many, many years of being on a spiritual quest, which really hit home when I had my brain operation, but more recently when my father transitioned. Energy work is fascinating to me. What really excites me, is that there is now more scientific research being done to prove that it enhances our health and our life. And, that there is more to life than what meets the naked eye!
My journey of life is and has been, one of self-discovery and exploration. My biggest passion and quest in my personal life is to discover who I really am and what I really want. My life, like many others, has many twists and turns, to get me where I am today. I have no regrets, for it has made me who I am today. Every day, each moment, is an opportunity to explore, learn and grow!
My sincere hope for you, is to truly find what it is in your heart that you desire most, and to live your life authentically from there. Live it to its fullest! Life is so very precious, and so very short. We never know when we will take our last breath. Love those around you and let them know how much they mean to you!
