Growing up with a father who was obese and suffered from many health problems, Rebecca began her personal path to wellness early on: her career as a nutritionist and fitness trainer were soon to follow. Shortly after embarking on her career as a Personal Trainer in 2001, Rebecca’s younger brother died of cancer at the age of 20.
This loss led to her own health decline. Through continued education, she was able to regain her health and develop a system to help her clients have unstoppable health.
Rebecca is a licensed nutritionist through AHSU/NINE, a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN) through the Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Institute, a Certified Metabolic Typing© Advisor (CMTA) through the Healthexcel system of Metabolic Typing©, Egoscue Method Postural Alignment Specialist, and Certified HeartMath Coach®.
