Hi, I'm Annie
Certified Health & Wellness Coach
As a nationally board certified Health & Wellness coach, I am passionate about helping my clients achieve a life of confidence, wellness, and success.
Simply put, my clients rock! They come from all walks of life, with diverse backgrounds and experiences, but they share a common desire: to improve their wellness and kick ass at life.
I am known to gush & obsess over my clients & their transformations. It’s so exciting watching them excel both personally and professionally after working together. I feel honored to be part of the journeys of hundreds of clients, but my greatest joy comes from witnessing their empowerment and success as they thrive on their own.
The thing is, I was planning on doing coaching as a part time gig. After earning my BA in Psychology, I began a ‘practical’ master’s degree in Speech Language Pathology. After being bored to tears, I switched degrees to Integrative Wellness Coaching.
I’m also certified in a few other modalities like Life & Success Coaching, Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), Clinical Hypnotherapy and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT).
I’ll be honest (and family & friends could vouch for me), I have A LOT to say & because of my gift of the gab, I have been featured on 60+ podcasts. So, if you have a podcast, I’d love to chat.
And last, but not least, a shameless plug, my book, Sh*t I Wish I Knew in High School. I share my off-the-wall anecdotes to help empower people to own their mistakes, learn from them, and most importantly…move the hell on after.

Do you love yourself?
Because you are the only person who has ever, or will ever, wake up with you every single morning
& go to bed with you every single night.
What is a health & wellness coach? 💭According to the National Board for Health & Wellness Coaching (NBHWC): Health & wellness coaches partner with clients looking to enhance their well-being through self-directed lasting changes, aligned with their values. In the course of their work, health & wellness coaches display unconditional positive regard for their clients & a belief in their ability to change, honoring the fact that each client is an expert on their own life while ensuring that all interactions are respectful & non-judgmental. Health & wellness coaches train in behavior change theories, motivational strategies & health education & promotion theories. They use these to support the client in creating & sustaining change for improved health & well-being.
Who are your clients? 💭I serve anyone who's trying to improve their life! 💁♀️ I have worked with 600+ people in the past & I have experience working with clients starting at the age of 5 years old, up to my eldest client being 84 years old. These range from working professionals, to students, to stay-at-home moms. Again, anyone who's trying to improve themselves is my kinda people!
What struggles do your clients have? 💭Most of my clients struggle with accountability, motivation, confidence, time & stress management, relationships, communication, boundary setting & more.
Why should I trust you? 💭I get it. There's A LOT of 'coaches' online. Why should you trust me to help you overcome your challenges? Well, here we go: #1 I am educated & accredited in the field of coaching, along with having worked with over hundreds of clients. #2 I can provide client experiences - so you don't have to just take my word for it. EDUCATION My undergraduate in Psychology and minor in Sociology taught me about cognitive, developmental, behavioral, social and clinical psychology. My bachelor’s degree gave me a broad understanding of human behavior. My graduate degree in Integrative Wellness Coaching allowed me to master the art and science of coaching. I was able to learn and utilize evidence-based approaches that help clients with lifestyle and behavior modifications. My certifications in Life & Success Coaching, Emotional Freedom Technique, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Time Technique, Clinical Hypnotherapy, ThetaHealing & Summit Transformation prepared me to coach in different modalities to serve my clients specific needs, as opposed to having a standardized approach. Along with my education, I am a National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach (NBC-HWC) Want to know more about my background?

Where are you located? 💭I live in Southern California, but coach virtually on the phone, video or via text. I use video programs such as Zoom, FaceTime, Skype, Google Meets & WhatsApp to communicate with my clients. For my online course, I use a platform called Quenza.
People are more comfortable with a familiar discomfort
than they are with an unfamiliar new possibility.

Working with Annie was exactly what I needed. She’s brilliant at asking exactly the right questions.
She can always help me gain clarity on my goals even when I’m feeling chaotic and like I’m making no sense at all. She guides me calming, compassionately and intelligently. I trust her and I’m grateful to have found her as a coach.

My one-on-one coaching with Annie has helped me tremendously with my new life! Yes, NEW LIFE!
I was able to achieve the realistic goals we set together as a team! To be honest, I didn’t think I needed a life coach, but I was wrong.
I decided to continue my coaching sessions with Annie and couldn’t be happier!

Annie has been a compassionate and powerful motivating force in my life.
Not only have I been able to identify and accomplish many of my goals while working with her, but through Annie’s guidance I have overcome personal obstacles by nurturing my inner child which has been truly liberating, empowering, and the key to my success.
High praise for the person she is and services she offers.
