Bio: Cindy ’s influence in health started in her Wisconsin childhood with her Mom who wrote a whole foods cookbook in the 70’s. She and her four siblings grew up with organic farm food, freshly caught fish and deer, homemade bread and lots (and lots) of sprouts. What they did not have in money, they made up for in resourcefulness, ingenuity, and sheer Belgian-Wisconsin grit. Cindy furthered her interest in health while attending a healing arts school in northern California in the early 90’s. It was there that she learned massage, energy healing, kinesiology, acupressure, hypnotherapy, and Traditional Chinese Medicine. She then studied education and art in college and worked as a teacher for children and adults in Missoula, Montana for 12 years before her and her husband opened a brick oven pizzeria. Their restaurant, www.bigapizza.com, has won best pizza and salad awards locally and nationally for the 15 years they have been open. They purchase much of their produce from local, organic farmers to create unique pies such as the Flathead cherry pizza and the winter squash pizza. Three years ago, Cindy returned to her original passion for health and became a certified health coach. Presently, she leads small groups through a yearlong program called The Habits for Thrive. Cindy is an accepting and knowledgeable coach who helps her members automate 10 life-changing habits using behavior science, tools from psychology, the wisdom of Ayurveda and group accountability. She feels it is especially important that each person moves at their own pace and always aim for a B-. Last month Cindy finished painting a 50-foot mural for their new restaurant expansion. She lives in Missoula with her husband and two teen daughters.
