“We must walk consciously only part way to our goal, and then leap in the dark to our success” – Henry David Thoreau
I love this quote.  Oftentimes when we need to make a change or take a risk that we know in our gut is right – we do it with inspiration and courage in spite of uncertainty. That is my sweet spot in helping busy professionals and teams. I am an award-winning Sales and Business leader, Certified Integrative Health Coach, and former US Army Captain. I am trained in a variety of sales, leadership, and health modalities. Combining my formal training with the learning and wisdom that comes from some truly inspirational experiences in life have helped me crystallize my own brand of coaching and leadership. This, in turn, has resulted in what I am most proud of: developing and leading award-winning teams and individuals.
As an integrative coach and business leader, I guide people, teams, and businesses out of their comfort zone to uncover not only what is in their way but also the tools to build and deploy successful strategies. I believe thoughts become things – so it is important to listen to and follow inspiration. It is also equally important, however, to formulate and deploy the right actions to realize the results of your inspired idea or goal. My strength is helping anyone translate the “Why” into the “How” and “What” so they can bravely take on any challenge.

I am an Integrative Health Coach, loving mother of two, and proud Army spouse.  As a business and sales leader,  I decided to become a health coach to fulfill my passion of helping busy working parents achieve their health goals. I founded inTOOLative™ Coaching to help moms and dads improve their work-life balance and overall life results by integrating health, business, and life coaching principles. I am a graduate of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and the Center for Creative Living. I received my training in a variety of dietary theories and practical lifestyle coaching methods at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City. I lead workshops on leadership and business while providing health, nutrition, and energy coaching to parents and busy professionals. inTOOLative™ Coaching offers a variety of customized services including individual coaching, group workshops and coaching, and Reiki. I help clients apply their intuition to integrate the right tools into their lives.

“Your best YOU already exists. It is inside you …waiting to be discovered. As a coach, I don’t ‘fix’ you because you don’t need to be ‘fixed’. Rather, I help you discover and harness the tools you need to bring out your most successful self.” - Kris Ruedebusch, inTOOLative Coaching
