About Me

Hi, I’m Denise. I am a certified health coach and owner of Optimal Health and Optimal Life Coaching.

The girl on the left was me posing with my family at Christmas. My family made me pose, and that is the only picture I have in my camera roll from 2020. Other than my work ID or a forced family photo, I hid from the camera.

I hid because...

❌ I felt miserable, and

❌ Tired, and

❌ Depressed, and

❌ I lacked self-esteem and confidence!

❌ I hated Myself and took it out on everyone around me.

Now fast forward to 2021, right around January. About a month after that photo was taken. I will never forget the conversation I had with a friend when she told me she had a program that would work. I laughed at her. I didn’t believe in programs. Programs don’t work… I’ve tried all the programs. I told her I’m not trying anymore.

Three 3️⃣ months later, she lost 30 pounds. I watched her journey silently from my living room while drowning my sorrows in wine and junk food.

😷Then, after battling illness, high blood pressure, tachycardia, and depression, and gaining a whopping 11 pounds more, I decided to call that friend and give this “program” a try.

Thirty days later, my health changed. I not only lost weight, but I felt energized, happy, and confident, and for the first time in a very long time, I found a health plan that was working!!

I look at the picture on the right. I was hanging out with my daughter enjoying some sunshine in Texas. She asked me to take a selfie. I jumped at the chance!! I no longer want to hide behind the 📷 camera—I wanted my daughters to have memories of their mom—their happy mom!

So now I take photos all the time. I take photos because I feel...



✅Confident, and most importantly


✅I don’t feel like I’m dying, I feel

Like I’m LIVING‼️

I love ❤️ this program so much because it not only gave me my health back, but it gave me my life back.

I really just want others to feel this amazing. Especially the parents who hide from the camera. It's heartbreaking to know my daughters won’t have too many photos of us from the year 2020 and the beginning of 2021.

But I will never hide from the camera again! And if YOU click on that button...you won't either.

I'm ready to take my selfie!
