About Me

Hey,

Welcome to my blog and thank you for taking the time to read my post and give me feedback.  I know there is a ton of information out there on health, wellness and fitness and my goal is to give you a place to find relevant information on healthy living.

A little about me: I live in Lincoln Park, a community on the outskirts of downtown Chicago about a ten-minute walk from the lake front.  I am a licensed psychotherapist and a nationally certified counselor here in the Illinois. Currently I am working a dream job at Retrofit, a company dedicated to healthy living and weight loss.   I have been with them for a little over a year now and have watched the company grow pretty quickly from a small start up to an established organization.

I am a graduate of the Chicago School of Professional Psychology where I earned a Masters Degree in clinical therapy.  Before that I was having a blast at the University of Colorado in Boulder where I spent about 7 years.  During that time I put myself through school working at Boulder Community Hospital and ended up getting into pharmaceutical sales for a little while. Yep, pretty eclectic background and it has really given me some solid experience to draw from.

Besides writing and I a pretty veracious reader and curse the invention of e-readers and one-click buying on Amazon.  I am a bit of a gym rat and have been a certified personal trainer for over 15 years, taught boxing, spin, bootcamps and Kangoo.  I love traveling and have several trips coming up including a solo trek around Europe.

I really try to hold myself to a pretty high standard because I recognize how valuable your attention is.  I look forward to getting your comments on how to improve the information that I wright about.
