Health is a journey, not a destination.

Hi, I'm Colleen! I'm an RN, Holistic Health Coach and the owner of Connected Minds Health and Wellness. My journey to wellness was triggered by a health awakening six years ago. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease at age 22, and wasn't feeling better or getting the answers I needed. After a lot of trial and error, and struggling with fatigue, bloating, skin and digestional issues, I found that real nutrient-dense food, clean water, regular movement, sunshine, quality sleep and removal of toxins were what my body was craving. I learned to listen, honor and trust what my body was saying. When you're connected, you thrive. 

My mission is to empower and educate busy women to regain control over their health and equip them with the tools to make the best decisions for themselves and families. Restrictive diets don't work. It gets uncomfortable to make changes, but IT'S WORTH IT.

Are you ready to feel empowered, get off the diet roller coaster and make LASTING health changes? During our focused, 1:1 intentional coaching sessions, you'll receive support, recipes, accountability and guidance to navigate your wellness journey to build a strong foundation of health, creating the necessary space for personal growth and positive shifts in your life.  Your health is essential. I am so happy to support you during this transformative journey.



What They’re Saying

I was immediately impressed with Colleen’s expertise and background, despite having accumulated years of my own research. I noticed an improvement in my energy and mood within just a week, and not just because Colleen’s positivity is contagious.”

Diana, age 55

Colleen’s coaching has been truly transformative for me in the most fun, enlightening, and personal way! Her knowledge is super well-rounded and I have gotten more than I ever expected out of each facet of this journey. She is able to guide me towards making the connections between everything from diet to sleep to exercise to mindset, all without judgement. No matter where I am in the process, she has provided the tools to keep me informed and motivated!”

"Over the last two months I've worked with Colleen to make some changes in my overall health. We looked at my eating habits, energy levels and pain level.

I can say now, two months later, that I feel much better. In my diet I cut out gluten, dairy and sugar. I make sure I exercise each day and my spiritual practice is

so important to my mental state . I found Colleen to be very knowledgeable, understanding and joyful. She gave me  great recipes to support my new way of eating and names of products as well, which made my trips to the market so much easier. What I've learned from Colleen will stay with me now and be used in the future. I will miss our conversations."
