Meet Coach Peggy
Coach – Consultant
Educator – Seminar Leader
Radio Host – Author
I love to help others improve the quality of their life and share their stories.
My life purpose is not a job. It is a passion. My career is like reading a book series that is written one exciting chapter at a time, one journey, one experience. I live for the Aha moments. Those are the moments when I see someone’s eyes open wide with an “I just got it” moment. At that time, they realize I have made a small difference in their self-discovery journey. Conversely, helping others continually transforms me and fuels a fire in me to help them share their stories with the world.
I embrace clients with no judgment, toss in a ton of empowerment, and add a tad of tough love. And as I say, “It’s true we are all special, but frankly not that special. We are more alike than not. We all have *hit! Just think…as challenging as it is to grow or become healthier, it will take just as much focus and energy to stay there. And I am here to help you stay there…then grow some more!
ACTIONS keep you MOTIVATED, and MOTIVATION equals SUCCESS
I have been in my industry for more than a hot minute. For over 30 years, I have hovered in the health, wellness, fitness, medical, and academic industries. I have been blessed to work hand in hand with thousands of clients, high school students, military dependents and soldiers, athletic competitors, eating disorders patients, and co-morbid disease states, including stress and diabetes trials, and in every corporate wellness environment, you can imagine. I know, vomit already, but hang tight, I have more dish…keep reading, get another coffee.
Let’s Get Personal ~
Grab an espresso, and let’s get acquainted…oh and just one donut, please…I must say I have always had a hard time compartmentalizing my personal and professional life. I just smoosh them together like a warm PB&J. Why- – -because I am innately wired and feel so blessed to be a part of others’ self-discovery and improvement, therefore, I can’t do one without the other. Thus, my personal and professional lives have always bled over. Witnessing others find the best version of themselves not just nutritionally and physically, but in terms of finding or improving self-love, confidence, improving social relationships, AND yes, learning food is fuel not foe, physical strength rules appearance, sleep is sexy, all leave me screaming “You deserve everything! You are everything!”
