The idea of Mama Frat was born out of my personal struggle with autoimmune disease. Physically, I went from daily workouts, a productive career and weekend triathlons to immobility, unemployment, and despair over my future. The doctor’s prognosis came with words like “wheelchair” and “mechanical devices”. It was a desperate time that left me emotionally bankrupt. The prescription drugs worked on a temporary basis, but I still struggled with persistent symptoms and simple daily tasks took monumental energy.
My mission is simple: help others past the despair of failing health. I achieve this by using the science of food, nutrition, and mind-set. I put my autoimmune diseases into remission, got active again and got my life back.
Sharing the picture with me is my amazing husband, ‘Frat’. He is a 13x Ironman finisher, an American Ninja Warrior, the Silver medal winner of his age group for the World OCR Championships and the man who holds my heart. We have two great kids and 3 spoiled rotten rescue puppies that bring us joy every day.
I hope you will follow me and find inspiration and nourishment from our time together. I offer one on one coaching, online workshops, and have even been known to do some keynote speaking for association meetings, fundraisers, and other events!
