She has served in the roles of Health Coach, radio show host, speaker and author, coach trainer and mentor, program developer and more as she has worked faithfully to build this organization from the ground up since January 2011!

In every setting you find her in, from private coaching to small groups or large audiences, Bess shares the FRESH Start principles in an effort to truly empower others to live their healthiest lives. Bess has personally coached hundreds of people of all ages and circumstances in small, practical steps that have led to their healthy lifestyle transformations.

As author of the “FRESH Start for Health” book she’s now bringing the simple steps for healthy lifestyle habits found there to FRESH Start Small Groups in churches and communities around the country. (With the help of a passionate leadership team!) She also created the FRESH Start Coaching Academy to empower other health coaches to serve their community with the inspired message of FRESH Start.

Her husband Juan is her biggest fan, and supports her in this venture, as together they are raising their four children by the fresh living principles Bess teaches. Her kids are her personal taste-testers for many of the recipes and meal plans Bess creates for FRESH Start!
