I believe we all have a story that has brought us to exactly where we are today. My health & wellness journey began over 10 years ago – it started in pursuit of physical healing for my full-body joint inflammation I developed as a highly competitive gymnast. In what felt like a very abrupt ending, I was asked to quit one of my greatest loves and a sport that defined me, overnight. My search for a new identity and the healing quest that ensued, pushed me out of my comfort zone and acted as the catalyst for my personal growth and transformation.
In time, I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Health Coaching from Life University, my Health Coach Certification from the Institute for Integrative of Nutrition, and my Transformational Coaching Method Mastery Certification from Health Coach Institute.
Today, I look at my life and I am in awe that I get to call it my own. I help facilitate transformational conversations and every time I hang up the phone I am amazed at the strength, resiliency, and sheer brilliance my clients naturally possess. I have the ability to work from wherever I wish in the world—so long as I have an internet connection and I have been blessed to be able to create and instruct the Advanced Nutrition for Health Coaches and Become a Life Coach Certificate training for Health Coach Institute that thousands of individuals will be able to use to help better their clients lives.
However, for the longest time this life felt far from possible.
Thankfully, a small part of me knew there was something more and dreamt of a life where I felt in full alignment—both internally and externally. One where I could share my ideas, passions, thoughts, etc. and not be worried about what others thought of me. One where I felt illuminated with joy, happiness, and a zest for life. Sometimes our dreams feel out of reach. I am passionate about helping individuals not only gain clarity on what they want, but understand how to make it a real possibility and then reality for themselves. I believe every person has a brilliance within them and part of my job is to help them tap into it to create the life they know is theirs deep within.
When we tap into our truth and align our internal and external worlds we become Revived!

"Over the last 18 months, she has helped me truly grow to see myself as a health coach and entrepreneur. Samantha has gently stretched me out of my comfort zone and held me accountable to taking action that I would not have otherwise – or it would have taken me much longer to summon the courage to do so. Every time I speak with Samantha, I leave with a renewed sense of potential and motivation. I can truly feel that she holds a higher vision for me of what I’m capable of achieving and every time we have a session, I feel her commitment to helping me get there. For anyone on the fence about coaching, you have nothing to lose except old baggage and beliefs that are keeping you stuck and not serving you. Coaching has been one of the greatest gifts for me personally and professionally. I feel as though I have grown leaps and bounds in 18 months. I’ve started really speaking my truth, owning my gifts as a human and a coach and stepping up more boldly and that’s all thanks to coaching."
"As one of Samantha’s students, what stands out most to me is her ability to shift my mindset during each session. Oftentimes, I would come to the session feeling out of mind-body balance, or frustrated, because I wasn’t where I thought I should be. Samantha would take me through an exercise that would allow me let go of the negative emotions so I could move forward and create deeper change. Thank you Samantha for holding the space for me to always be the highest version of myself. You have been the catalyst to my growth as a Coach and more importantly to the confident person I've strived to become."
