Hi, I’m Jill!

A few titles I answer to include Health Coach, Precision Medicine Pharmacist, Yoga Instructor, Personal Trainer, Mom, Wife, Blogger, Sourdough Enthusiast, and Runner.

Welcome, I’m glad you’re here and excited to share the story of Wisely Well with you. Success takes many forms and often those who experience what society defines for them as success are dialed in. These women spend all their effort and energy focused on others, their craft—anything and everything besides their health. Oftentimes, there is a limiting belief standing in the way of health and fueling this drive. Over time, these highly successful women can find themselves experiencing chronic stress and living a life that doesn’t reflect who they are on the inside. This lifestyle can lead to burnout, exhaustion, silent inflammation, and even physical sickness.

Do you know what success looks like for you? There was a time when I could not answer that question for my life, or did not even think about asking it, electing instead to chase the proverbial dream on auto pilot. Maybe, this is you?

My passion is to help you create a healthy lifestyle that integrates into your life instead of taking it over. I help you do this through a strong focus on enhancing mobility, reducing chronic stress, and developing true resilience.

I don’t diagnose, prescribe, or treat. Instead, think of me as your guide to understand who you are as a whole person and to help you discover how the food you eat and your lifestyle affects your body and soul. Our vision at Wisely Well is a community without chronic disease and full of hope for a flourishing future (Jeremiah 29:11).

Where you can find me!

I’m on a mission to empower my community with self care skills that enhance mobility, reduce chronic stress, and promote true resilience. Join me to experience embodied resilience!

I invite you to cultivate a deepening of your faith as you focus on your health. Wellness doesn’t come from a product nor is it dependent on the system or an expert. Putting God first, you can create a lifestyle that supports your wellness and your family.
