Meet Lori

Healthy Connections Coaching, LLC
Health & Wellness Coach, Speaker, Retreat Leader, and Mind-Body Medicine Group Leader

I am a certificated professional athletic trainer, proficient in working with employees in various physically and mentally demanding occupations.  My schooling as an athletic trainer was primarily Western-based with little exposure to alternative, complementary, or integrative practices. When my personal health concerns showed little improvement with traditional medical care, I began exploring other means of healing.  I discovered other systems of healing that enhanced and complimented the Western medicine model in which I was trained. I personally utilized acupuncture, deep breathing exercises, herbs, dietary changes and Qi Gong to achieve results with asthma, hives, allergies and sinus infections.  I also realized the impact emotions can have on overall health. These successes lead me into the emerging field of health and wellness coaching, allowing me to build a more favorable and constructive partnership with others on their health and healing journeys. I am honored to partner with you on your journey in a health and wellness coaching context.  I look forward to holistically exploring your inherent, healing wisdom and your mind-body-spirit connections.

When not health & wellness coaching, I enjoy bicycling, nature walks, art and craft projects, gardening, and travel adventures.
