    Hello, I currently work in a not-for-profit as the director of a Consumer Directed Personal Assistant Program. We assist people with disabilities to find, hire, train, and basically run their own home health care. I have done this for almost two decades now and I’m looking at moving into the role of Health Coach. I recently graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and I’m excited to learn new skills that I can apply both to my current consumers as well as future clients.
