“I am excited to teach in the M.S. in Lifestyle Health Sciences & Coaching program to share my knowledge and experience with our students. Being able to combine Health Literate Communication with Health Coaching prepares you as a provider of the future with the skills needed to empower people to make lasting lifestyle changes to stay healthy and well. Even if people are living with chronic disease, having a provider coach them imparts the knowledge and skills necessary to manage their disease contributing to overall quality of life. Health is definitely wealth when it comes to life quality!”
