As a health care practitioner, I wish I could say that I have had an easy time with being healthy and fit. I grew up in South Korea where the getting a good grade is the number one goal for every child’s first 18 years. As long as you do well in the school, everything else doesn’t matter including one’s personal health. As it were, I achieved solid grades but I was obese. I gained a lot of weight during my teen age years and was told that it would all go away when I went to college. Guess what? That didn’t happen. I lost some weight during those college years because my activity level was more than my teen years but the weight was still an issue. I was leading a bad lifestyle with minimal exercise and poor eating habits. My energy was low and my health suffered. It has taken me close to 20 years to get where I am today. Now, I feel happy about the life I am leading and my overall look and feel. During these years, I took on education on different health approaches. After earning my Bachelor of Science degree in nursing at EWHA Women’s University in Seoul, South Korea, I went on to refine my education with a Masters of Chinese Medicine from the Academy of Oriental Medicine in Austin, Texas. I started as a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine. And even though Traditional Chinese Medicine is a more holistic approach than the current medical system, I felt that both approaches were still more a reactive approach to treating the human body. Our body has an amazing ability to heal itself when we give it the right ingredients. When we feed our body what it needs, we will less likely need doctors regardless of modality. I believe holistic and proactive care is the right kind of approach to one’s health. So, following my convictions, I have recently completed a nutrition training program and am now a Certified Health Coach. And while committing myself to all of these different health care philosophies, I became healthier and fitter. My philosophy is that every body is unique. To help address the distinct needs of each client, I incorporate all of these modalities. At the core, our body has an amazing innate wisdom and an ability to heal itself. I see myself as a supporter and a coach to help you to find your body’s own wisdom. We all deserve to be healthy and fit and to live our life to its fullest.

"I recently had the pleasure to experience the Conscious Living Investigation -CLI- as facilitated by Kelley. Given that we unconsciously repeat 90% of the same thoughts and behaviors each and every day, the CLI brings sharp awareness to many of our unconscious and sometimes unhealthy patterns. Becoming aware of these practices is truly an important step towards achieving true healing. Using CLI is an invaluable tool to help unveil the complexities underlying our conscious and subconscious world and reveal many of the factors influencing our everyday actions. From the CLI teachings, my everyday life is now more joyful and flows more easily. And since I believe that a proactive approach is best, I incorporate CLI concepts with my own clients. I would highly recommend this CLI course for both practitioners and clients."
