Before I get into my qualifications, I want you to know that my most valuable skill is that I’m a human being. My most favorite part of everything I do is the relationships I build with other humans. I’ve always been fascinated by how humans can relate to each other no matter their age, background, native language, or life experiences. Helping others find hope and empowerment is my jam. After working in healthcare for over a decade, I am becoming increasingly concerned about how many fine folks are not getting the answers they are looking for in the place they are going to for help. In the place that they are the most vulnerable and trusting.
Too often, conventional medicine is coming up short in their understanding of the underlying cause of Type 2 Diabetes and how to reverse it. The concept that Type 2 Diabetes is reversible is relatively new, only acknowledged since bariatric surgeries have demonstrated rapid normalization of blood sugars. Still, mainstream national authorities of Type 2 Diabetes claim the condition is not a reversible disease and give advice that actually propels the disease forward. I am so deeply passionate about offering people a SOLUTION, not a bandaid in the form of medications, that I have decided to get certified as a life coach and bring you this alternative.
I am a Doctor of Pharmacy. I have been board certified in both Pharmacotherapy and Ambulatory Care specialties. Basically, I’m an overachiever in the world of pharmacists. But that is how I roll. I am driven to get better so that I can serve my patients better. They deserve the best.
I’m not your typical pharmacist. I’ve been practicing since 2006. I work in primary care, and I meet privately with people who are having problems with their medications. Often, the most complex medication problems are referred to me. Uncontrolled diabetes and high blood pressure are the most common problems I deal in. I make sure medications are appropriate, doing the job they are supposed to do, not causing problems like side effects or drug interactions, and that my patients can afford them and take them the way they are supposed to be taken.
I’m also a Certified Life and Weight Loss Coach. I obtained certification from the best coaching school in the world. Coaching uses the most effective, powerful tools to show you your own thinking so that you can understand why you are not getting the results in your life that you want. Coaching teaches you how to bridge the gap between the results you have and the results you want to have. It reveals how to live your life on purpose instead of on default and in reaction to what is happening.
Life Coaching is what I was made for.
And, Yes, I’m the pharmacist that wants to help you get off your meds!
