"There comes that mysterious meeting in life when
someone acknowledges who we are and what we can be, igniting the
 circuits of our highest potential."  Rusty Berkus

Elisabeth has been involved in the health and fitness industry since 1988
with added experience in the medical and rehabilitation community.  She
has a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science and a Master of
Science degree in Physical Education and Kinesiology/Wellness
Management.  She is certified by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) as a fitness instructor and is a member of the International Association of
Fitness Professionals (IDEA). Elisabeth is also currently enrolled in Coach University’s Coach Training Program to receive her Professional Certified Coach (PCC) certification through the International Coach Federation (ICF). 

Elisabeth started Total Lifestyle Consulting in 1996 as a medium for her to share her passions in life.
Originally her mission was to help others feel physically healthier
and more confident, but as she evolved, so has Total Lifestyle Consulting.
Today her goal for TLC is to help others be the best they can be in
mind, body & spirit.

A native to the east coast, a small town in Pennsylvania to be exact, Elisabeth moved to the Central Coast of California to attend Graduate school at California Polytechnic State University (CalPoly). She loved the area so much that she never left.  While working in Physical Therapy at a local hospital, she was asked by one of her co-workers to be their Personal Trainer (they had heard that she had done this in college).  She loaded up her car with as much equipment as she could haul and before she knew it her In-home Personal Fitness Training business was born.  Elisabeth’s clientele grew rapidly and provided her with a way to stay in San Luis Obispo, the town she fell in love with.  Not only was a business born but so was her passion, helping to empower people to be the best that they can be. Elisabeth is dedicated to supporting and motivating her clients and helping them to care for themselves physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. 

The joy that her work brings her and her passion for being a catalyst for change in her clients’ lives lead Elisabeth to the profession of Coaching.  It was a natural fit since she had been coaching, through her fitness training, since the inception of her business in 1996. Now, with the added service of Life Coaching, Total Lifestyle Consulting has the capabilities to meet your every need… body… mind… and spirit.

Elisabeth now lives on a ranch in San Miguel California, 45 minutes north of San Luis Obispo, with her husband Dean and their many wonderful animals.  They enjoy working together and designing custom iron creations with their business Vineyard Canyon Iron Designs.
