HEY There!!

I'm Coach Chere

 Plant Goddess, Health Coach, Foodie, Researcher, Badass Boss Babe, Mom, Gigi, Beach Lover, Sunrise & Sunset Chaser! 

I am a Certified Lifestyle and Wellness Coach, teaching on the principles of the Paleo Lifestyle. 

I am a Certified Lifestyle and Wellness Coach, teaching on the principles of the Paleo Lifestyle. You may be asking,

"What exactly does that mean?"  We will get to that here in a bit but first, let's get to know one another.

I am a wife of 17 yrs, a mama to 1 beautiful young lady, who is also my best friend, a mini version of me, my adventure partner, plus I'm a "bonus" Gigi to 4 beautiful grandbabies.  

Family is everything to me so if I call you friend, I chose you to be a part of my family because as the saying goes

"friends are the family we choose  for ourselves."

I am a Live Goods Merchandiser {by day} for an annual company who also supplies herbs and veggies to a local home

improvement store. 

If that doesn't fit right into my mojo! :)

I am a high energy coach and boss babe!!

I give everything I do 110%

I HATE to have my picture taken but believe sometimes selfies are important when trying to reach certain body goals.

I am empathetic , which means I have the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. I'm a pretty good people reader. 

Vibes is something that comes natural to me, so if I get a bad vibe, you can pretty much take it to the bank.

I LOVE music, all kinds, but my fav is country.  I grew up singing in a choir and have used it as a therapy since as long as

I can remember. Besides, it makes a great background for exercise.

Something to be said for dancing to the beat and shak'in that bootie!!

Don't mistake me for someone who can actually sing or dance but that doesn't mean I won't :)

I am a beach lover! I spent most of my teenage yrs on the beach. And have ALWAYS been a sunrise and sunset chaser.

Something so calming about sitting on the beach at sunrise with a cup of coffee in hand or a glass of wine watching the sunset. 

It just restores the soul!

                                                                                         

 

                                                                                       Isn't it just beautiful

My Journey

At the end of November 2009, I woke up with neck pain. Thinking I had a crick in my neck from sleeping wrong the night before and that in a few days I would be better to finding myself by January in a deep all over body pain that was just getting worse and unbearable.  Finally, I went to see a practitioner who ran some blood work and gave me alot of pills. Pain pills, nerve blockers, high doses of anti-inflammatories, and NOTHING WORKED! 

Migraines that were making me sick and non-functional. Muscle pain and weakness to the point I had to have help out of bed. Now, my cholesterol has gone up and I'm only 39. 

I was introduced to a chiropractor who did holistic alternatives. After a 2 hr consultation, some x-rays, he came back and said "I think I can help" WHAAAAT?? Sceptical, I listened to what he had to say. As he told me my body was inflammed and thought to be in my blood, that I needed to change the way I ate. WAIT! Change the way I eat?

But, I eat healthy!!!! Little did I know, potatoes from a box was indeed NOT healthy, meat that I was buying at the grocery store WAS NOT HEALTHY! 

I agreed to learn about this new "lifestyle" he spoke of because let's face it........I HAD NOTHING TO LOSE! I was getting sicker by the day and NOTHING had worked this far.

With lots of research, eating whole nutritious food, adjustments from the chiropractor, and massage therapy, I was back to being my old self but better. I had more energy, I was healthier, happier and vibrant. I had lost a ton of weight, looked and felt the best I had ever felt.

A year with a doctor who made me sicker and in just 8 months doing holistic alternatives I was in the best shape of my life. Check out my photos at the end of this page.

Today, I'm teaching others how they can rid old habits and create healthier ones so they too can life their best lives. I educate so that you have all the knowledge you need to be your healthiest self. I am a fierce supporter, giving you the confidence and resources you need to reach your goals. I am known as the "Cheerleader Coach" and for good reason.

It's never easy but always worth it!

Here is what I expect: You work as hard as I do, You follow the plans we create, you are willing to adjust, you have an open mind and are willing to try and learn new things.
