When I addresss audiences people often assume that my high-energy level comes naturally. But that’s not true. Like many of you, I struggled with my energy and productivity for many years. As a corporate health and wellness speaker, I share the research about how simple lifestyle changes in the way we eat, think, move, and sleep can not only boost the energy our employees have. It can also decrease absenteeism, presenteeism, as well as errors and accidents. My personal struggles is what drives me to inspire others to be healthy, sane, and productive. I’ve been consulting with Johnson & Johnson Human Performance Institute for nearly seven years – and I can help your company, too.
Most of us are born with lots of energy, optimism, and joy – just watch any two-year old. Unfortunately, many of us destroy that natural energy by sleeping less than we need, overloading on less-healthy foods, and working long days without balancing it with movement, play, and hobbies. I understand. I destroyed mine, too. But, we can get off that vicious cycle and enjoy life once again.
Humans, Machines…Everything Runs on Energy
I believe having optimal energy is at the center of everything we strive for. Too many people make goals of losing weight, increasing sales, making more money, improving relationships – and then fail because they just don’t have the physical, emotional, and mental energy to succeed. Without energy, everything is so much more difficult – work, hobbies, relationships, goals…life!
Corporate Health & Wellness Speaker
With a background in corporate wellness, university teaching, and clinical health, I now inspire audiences all over North America and abroad (more than 1000 groups, including corporations, associations, and women’s events) to be healthy, sane, and productive. Many in my audience are professionals who have achieved great success – at the detriment of their health and personal life.
Transform Your Workforce
My interactive programs offer scientifically proven lifestyle strategies that even the busiest of people can incorporate into their lives. All it takes is a few small shifts in the way we eat, think, move, and sleep that can help improve our productivity at work…so we have more energy for ourselves and our loved ones. I often refer to these changes as “no big deal changes” because I invite people to make the changes that are the easiest to change – the ones that make people respond, “Oh, that’s ‘no big deal’. I can do that!”
Participants often comment that I’m “energetic, funny, entertaining”…and that my solutions are “realistic, practical, simple.” As a PhD nutritionist and registered dietitian, I’ve written five books designed to keep busy people healthy, sane, & productive. I’m always keeping up with the science of nutrition and health. In the process of writing my latest book, Reboot – how to power up your energy, focus, and productivity, I reviewed nearly two thousand medical research studies.
