In 2006 Samantha moved back to St. Louis to pursue her personal training certification. Her certifications include NASM, Functional Diagnostics Nutrition, NESTA and CHEK Level 2 Holistic Lifestyle Coach. Samantha’s desire to do functional Diagnostics came from her own health problems she discovered when she learned she suffered from Adrenal Fatigue, Food sensitivities, Pathogens, Leaky gut and lots of hidden stressors. She spent a good portion of her life struggling with weight despite working out and eating a perfect diet and knew it had to be something more. With the right coaching she slowly began to rebuild her health and realize that she didn’t have to settle for feeling horrible the rest of her life. The long hard road to get better has given her the drive to help others who are suffering with the same.

Through her passionate love of health and wellness and natural ability to partner with her clients to tailor their individual workout plans and Holistic protocols, Samantha has found her professional calling as Functional Diagnostics practitioner. In this role she has a genuine desire to help her clients achieve their goals they believed were never attainable. Currently she works with a diverse range of clients in terms of age, gender and ability.
