Hey, I'm Chris!
a licensed health and nutrition counselor (RHNC)
certified cancer coach
certified life coach
But who am I as a person?
I am a wife and mom to three amazing kids who had a life-altering experience with cancer. True, it wasn't me that was diagnosed but I was thrown headfirst into the role of primary caregiver to someone diagnosed with terminal cancer.
That, someone, wasn't just anyone, it was the love of my life, the father of my kids, and my soul mate. I knew we were meant to be together forever so him dying was NOT an option.
So there I was wondering what the other options were. What was it going to take to get us through this what needed to be done for him to survive???
I'm not going to say that I was full of confidence in the beginning because I wasn't!
I had all the emotions, sadness, anger, fear you name it I had it.
I felt completely helpless I had no idea where to start!
So I started in the kitchen and from there it exploded into a complete lifestyle overhaul.
It wasn't easy and I spent hours and hours researching, I scoured the internet I read books and books and more books.
I started implementing the things I learned along the way it took months... years really and I continue to educate myself.
In those first few months I would have loved to have:
someone to fast track that whole process,
someone who could have laid it all out there for me
someone to say okay here this is what you need to do
someone to tell me we would get through this
someone to say it's going to be okay, I gotcha
Throughout my journey, I realized that I wanted to be that someone!
I wanted to be that helping hand that guiding light that I wished I'd had.
With that in mind, I enrolled in Nutraphoria School of Holistic Nutrition and received my diploma in holistic nutrition and health coaching. That was just the beginning of my formal education I've also become a reiki practitioner, life coach, and a certified cancer coach.
I am still learning and I will continue to learn it has become my passion to help others navigate the cancer world.
So here I am! I gotcha!
It's going to be okay!
You will get through this!
And I will show you how!
