I have served as a Certified Weight Loss Specialist with Health Factor Weight Loss for more than 2 years. I received my Bachelor of Science degree from Campbellsville University. Nutrition has been a passion and I continue to study health and nutrition specifically geared at weight loss. I struggled for decades with obesity, food allergies and health issues directly related to my excess weight; and have successfully lost and maintained a weight loss of over 60 pounds to date. You can schedule an appointment to meet me at my new location in Salvisa.
I am actively involved in not only my community but also the surrounding communities. In my free time, I enjoy creating and learning new grain-free, dairy-free, sugar-free recipes and sharing these works of art or sometimes catastrophes with friends and family. I love to cook, read and spend time with my family. My passion is to help others successfully achieve their weight loss goals in a healthy manner that they will be able to maintain.
In September of 2017 I became quite ill. I spent September of that year to January 2018 on steroids, a variety of antibiotics and had one surgery and a second one lined up. I had to go on FMLA from my job because I was not physically capable of working. In fact, I was barely capable of living. I was a 51-year-old woman who felt like I was living in a 91 year old body with a myriad of debilitating health conditions.
As it turned out, I had gained over 25 pounds on the medication during my illness and had already been overweight before I became ill. I expressed concern to my doctor about the weight gain. Her response was that I would have to learn to live with it because I would not be able to lose weight at my age and in my condition.
It was at that point, I walked out of her office determined to prove her wrong and get my health back! I was no longer enjoying life and every day had become a struggle. A life where I was able to travel, play with my future grandchildren, take walks with my husband was unimaginable. Even just cleaning my home or cooking a meal became a huge chore.
HEALTH FACTOR WEIGHT LOSS
I learned about HFWL about 2 weeks after my doctor had made her statement to me about never losing the weight. It was clear that I had reached a point in my life where I was willing to make whatever changes were necessary to get my life back. To live again! Health Factor Weight Loss literally saved my life! I have more energy than I have had in over a decade. No longer do I wake up with aches and pains, or do I feel weighed down or groggy. I sleep well and wake up energized and ready to start my day. It feels amazing!
