About Me



In my last 23 years of maintenance I have had plenty of reasons

to gain it back but I chose not to.

  • Lost my best friend to pneumonia

  • Quit smoking

  • Did that menopause thing

  • Became empty nesters

  • In 2022 I supported my husband through his battle with cancer.  

  • 23 years is a long time



In 2020 with COVID and things changing rapidly, being home I decided to further my coaching education. I spent the summer achieving certification as a Health and Nutrition, Life Purpose, Goal Success, Happiness, Meditation, Self Care and  Master Life Coach.

Offering Virtual Personal Coaching and Virtual Group Coaching with quality discussion starters.

My Personal Journey 

A accomplished Coach and Author behind the transformative book and workbook.  "Always On Your Side: Power of 13 - Your Common Sense Guide to Health and Wellness. Like countless others, I encountered post-wedding weight gain and embarked on a relentless quest to shed those excess pounds.

In the midst of this pursuit, I found my solution in Weight Watchers, an approach that enabled me to shed a remarkable 55 pounds. However, as a familiar tale unfolds, I temporarily strayed from the path, erroneously believing myself cured, only to witness the return of the weight I had worked so hard to lose. Undeterred, in the year 2000, I boldly reengaged with the program, ultimately shedding an impressive 65 pounds, marking a turning point that would forever redefine my relationship with health and wellness. For over two decades, I have proudly maintained a weight within a mere 2 pounds of my goal, a testament to the resilience and transformative power of my journey.

The beauty of my story lies in its imperfections - I too am not immune to the allure of chocolate martinis and savory burgers. In my quest to bridge the gap between indulgence and balance, I have learned the invaluable art of incorporating what we love into our lives without sacrificing our health.

My Coaching Style 

With More than 23 years of Experience including 20 years with Weight Watchers as a top coach. I understand the weight loss journey and the mind set that is required.   My coaching philosophy is the belief that each individual possesses the capacity to embrace a healthy lifestyle. My no-nonsense coaching approach thrives on the conviction that, by shedding excuses, one can grasp their aspirations with unwavering clarity. My coaching is rooted in the principles of balanced nutrition, with an emphasis on portion control, reduced sugar intake, and moderation of saturated fats. Introducing the "Always On Your Side POWER 13" – a guide of thirteen essential elements pivotal to the healthy and wellness that you are looking for.  Rooted in practical wisdom, these principles effortlessly merge with your daily regimen, presenting a unified and balanced pathway towards enduring well-being.  Within my coaching framework, you have the freedom to choose your preferred dietary path.  Nurturing a symbiotic relationship between mindset and action, I am devoted to dismantling obstacles and accentuating strengths, for we are all uniquely adept in diverse domains. We confront challenges head-on, carving pathways paved with simplicity, a mantra that echoes with the query, "How can you make this easier for you?"  Together, we recognize your self-imposed limitations and embark on a journey of true transformation, fueled by the realization that the barriers we perceive are but stepping stones to our own growth and evolution.

Meet the Support Team 

Have you met my Amazing Support staff?


I met both Marlene and Sally in WW works shops and when I left I wanted them both to stay with me but you never know where people are in their story.  They both encouraged me to JUMP and said all the right things.  When I asked if they were interested they were ALL IN.  I knew from working with them both they only cared about YOU!  The participants the people who would be in our support groups.Now let me let them tell their stories .

Our certified health coach will be there to guide you.
Our owner earned her life coach certificate in 2020.

Meet Marlene

“I moved to beautiful Colorado in 1980, so I consider myself a “native transplant!” I have always been in Graphic Design/Customer service and it is simply my nature to pay close attention to every detail in all areas of work and play. I started my own graphic design business in 1990 so that I could raise my two beautiful daughters. They are now grown, married and I have two wonderful granddaughters. When I finally lost over 80lbs I decided to go to work for WW and believe that because of my background in customer service, I fit right in to helping people with their own journey. Paris has always been my favorite coach, so when I was hired by WW is when I started working side by side. With her years of constant training and becoming a life coach she has helped so many of us reach our goals. So, now I am proud and so very happy that I was able to transition into a slightly different role and continue to work side by side.”

Meet Sally 

Our health coach has life coach certification.
We offer life coaching.

I retired to Colorado in July 2017 after working as a Speech and Language Pathologist for the Department of Defense in Germany where I lived for 15 years.  I worked assessing and counseling students with special needs and assisting their parents and teachers with the many challenges they all faced.  The skills developed during this time enhanced my ability to understand and empathize with the difficulties we all face along our journey.   I moved to Colorado to be with my son and my adorable granddaughter.  I had been living abroad and knew that it was time to move back to the states in order to be a part of my granddaughter’s life.   In 2016 I had to stop most of my activities due to pain in my hip.  I was not able to have hip replacement surgery for 6 months and in that time gained more than 40 pounds.  When I moved to Denver, I made a commitment to myself to lose the weight I had gained, to be healthy, and live an active lifestyle during the next chapter.  After being in Colorado for six months and not being very successful with my weight loss, a friend suggested that I try WW.  I joined and in about a year I had lost 50+ pounds and felt so healthy and happy.  I was hired by WW in May 2019 and was very fortunate to meet and work with Paris.  She brought life and passion to each workshop and was such an amazing mentor.   I feel privileged to be able to support Paris and I look forward to continuing this journey with her and with all the wonderful people that join us in AOYS (Always On Your Side).
