My great joy is walking alongside women (and sometimes men) as they seek a healthier, fuller life. I’ve walked that path myself, and so I see myself as a fellow traveler, but one that’s been on this trail a while, so I know where the sinkholes and snakes are, and where the hidden shortcuts and breathtaking views can be found.
I’m currently offering my assistance as a trail guide in these ways.
I offer two different classes, each is only offered once a year. For now, these groups are specifically for women.
If you’re in the Wichita KS area, there may be a group that meets in a physcial space; if not, there are online groups as well.
Stage 2: Uncover Your Stumbling Blocks meets in September and October. Learn more about this class here. [link to come]
Stage 3: Plan for Success meets in March and April. Learn more about this class here. [link to come]

Teaching and speaking
I’m available to speak to groups or to present workshops or seminars. All talks can be tailored for mixed audience or women only.
Is self-care selfish? This talk is faith-focused. With an emphasis on grace and love, we’ll look at why we have problems with self-care, and how it relates to our relationship with Jesus, as well as our health.
Grandma was right. In the first half of the 20th century, women were 25 pounds lighter on average; men, 30 pounds; and type 2 diabetes was one sixth as common as it is now. In this talk, I’ll explain several ways the early 20th century lifestyle was healthier than ours, and how we can adjust our way of living now to reap the benefits.
Stocking your kitchen for easier whole food meals. I share the items I keep on hand, and how to create your own list. I also explain how to prep and store common ingredients so as to cut down the time and effort it takes to get a meal on the table.
Oh no! What am I making for dinner? A workshop to lead participants through setting up their own protein-centered meal plan, as well as some quick tips on stocking your kitchen. Includes a take-home workbook.
Interested in one of these topics for your group? Contact me.
One-on-one support sessions
I’m also available for one-on-one video chats to address a specific challenge or question you may have.
Stage 1 assessment. For the person who feels super stuck, and doesn’t understand why they keep ending up back at square one.
I don’t feel like cooking. / I hate to cook. Let’s have a conversation about what exactly this means to you, and how you might makes things easier, gain a new perspective, or both.
Choosing your food boundaries. I can’t prescribe a diet for you, but I can help you figure out what your priorities are, and give you some suggestions on solutions to consider.
Lunch strategy. Whether you work from home or away from home and need a plan, I can help. We’ll discuss your specific challenges and likes, and come up with healthier alternatives.
Nighttime eating. A conversation to help discover what factors might be contributing, we’ll talk through some options to break the cycle.
60- or 90-day check in. A few months into your new diet or exercise program, you may be tempted to bend your boundaries. Now’s a great time to assess what’s working, what isn’t, and why.
