Simone has strong leadership skills and an immense ability to get things done. During her time at Canyon Ranch, she reached management executive competency levels quicker than any of the thousands of people I’ve employed in various businesses over my 50-year career span.
Simone demonstrates a keen sensitivity and great compassion. She cares deeply for others and has the ability to bring out the best in those who work with her.

I started working with Simone because I was finally ready to take charge of my mental and physical health. In the past, I was mainly focused on my physical appearance, and I put a tremendous amount of stress on my body, doing massive amounts of cardio and eating as few calories as possible. I also struggled with stress and was constantly dealing with brain fog at work.
Simone helped me make consistent, sustainable changes to improve my overall health. Through her coaching, I understood why meditation was important and developed a practice of my own. Together we worked through the fears I had about nourishing my body properly, and I started eating in a way that improved my health and increased my mental clarity and focus tenfold. Her recommendation to add a weight lifting component to my physical activities has helped me grow significantly stronger. Before working with Simone, I had a depleted immune system and was constantly sick. Since we’ve started coaching together, I haven’t missed a single day of work.
Simone brings an open heart and mind to each of our sessions, and allows me to do the same. Her passion and genuine desire to help improve all of the lives around her shines through in her work. With Simone’s help, I am now treating my body with the respect that it deserves.
Rarely does a person say: "life is easy." Life is hard, no one argues that. There are periods in your life when things seem to be more difficult than normal. It’s difficult to focus, you question your choices, you are unhappy and can’t quite figure out why, you don’t know what to focus more attention on between your family, your job, your happiness, and your health, and the list goes on. I felt all those things. It's times like this where you need that additional support to help you focus. Simone was just that. I was at a crossroad in my life where I wanted to see change, I wanted to MAKE change! I was sick of excuses and barriers in my way. Simone was my focus and accountability through this crossroad in my life.
I struggled in a variety of areas: work relationships, personal relationships, health and diet, and finding my passion in life. Simone was able to successfully address each one of these areas during our time spent together. During each session, we would focus on one or two intentions and come up with a plan on how to address each of these intentions. It was my job to implement the tools, but Simone helped facilitate the path, provided me with new life tools, and then guided me along the journey.
Simone is not here to give you a magic formula for all your problems. Rather, she helped me look at things from a different perspective in a kind, compassionate way. We are so hard on ourselves and she was able to remove that negative stigma we put on ourselves. One testimonial about Simone that continuously resonates with me is that “Simone is like an old soul.” I have to agree with that 110%. Simone’s personality, style, and even her voice have a calming effect. I appreciated every moment, every tear, every struggle I shared during my work with Simone.
Simone's entire philosophy is that each person needs help in a different way. In our time together, she has helped me alter my diet to accommodate and improve my health conditions and she has also helped me change the way I perceive myself. Simone is always genuinely interested in what is going on with me; I am comfortable talking with her about my work life, personal life, fitness life, and everything in between.
She knows exactly what questions to ask to make me reflect, and although our sessions are sometimes emotional and challenging, she’s always there to support me. We are on this journey together.

Simone’s knowledge of all things nutrition, exercise, and spirituality-related is second to none. She exhibits an extraordinary commitment to helping others, and her coaching style is both reassuring and proactive. Simone has such passion for her work, and I look forward to every session with her.
Working with Simone has dramatically improved my eating habits, and with her support I am setting and reaching higher goals than ever. Simone has also helped me manage my work-related stress, which has been a key part of my journey to Conscious Health. She has guided me to a better, healthier lifestyle at the ripe old age of 58, which I did not think was possible!

I worked with Simone at a time when I needed to feel alive again and re-start the process of finding who I am/was. I found Simone at a point when both my Grandmothers had recently passed away and my marriage had ended. I was lost, confused, angry, and depressed. I struggled with my nutrition, sleep, anger, and my spirituality. I had a vision to re-discover myself, my values, and what I needed to move forward.
Simone graciously and selflessly helped me get back on track. We focused on relationships, spirituality, and nutrition to name a few, which organically led to some other side focus points as well. The biggest shift from our work together was when Simone suggested, explained, and put into practice for me some simple meditation, nutrition, and spirituality exercises. This helped me to see and re-focus my values and to re-direct my life on the right course with my nutrition, food, exercise and social engagement, all of which were lacking in my life at that time. Simone is right for the person who wants to make that change and add value to themselves and others; Simone is for anybody who is dedicated to putting forth the effort to make it happen and listening to a voice who truly cares.
Simone is REAL and working with her was seamless. She listens and made it simple to put things into motion. She is a friend and truly cares about her work and helping others achieve the best version of themselves. Simone is someone I can count on now and in the future. Simply put, Simone is one of the good ones, a special person who helped get me back in the saddle and out onto the open road of life.
Simone is truly an “Old Soul” and I believe God brought her into my life. I am almost 30 years older than Simone and I feel as though she is my Mentor. She has taught me to learn self-compassion and self-love. I have struggled with insecurity, anxiety and feelings of not being “good enough”. Simone, with her kind and wise insight has shown me that I am worthy and has given me tools to work with when these “doubts” creep in.
