Dr. Cole’s Athlete-Mom Story
What a surprise it was for me, a competitive athlete for over 15 years, when the debilitating nausea of my first pregnancy set-in around week 5 and only ceased when I was too pregnant to do much besides walk and stretch. I was thrown in to my Athlete-Mom journey, as many are, without truly realizing the changes that would take place in my body, mind and soul as well as with my lifestyle.
Now four years later and my journey continues as I chase two active toddlers through their days of discovery and little girl emotions. Doing this while juggling a career as a physician and keeping balance in my marriage and friendships has been an extraordinary challenge for sure.
Stepping back into my athletic lifestyle and reclaiming my competitive pursuits has been one of the most difficult but necessary steps to finding balance in my life. Sports helped to define my youth and young adulthood and now, as a mother, I continue to push the limits of my mind and body through athletics.
My passion is to support other Athlete-Moms on their journeys back to the sports that filled such important parts of their lives.
Reclaim YOUR Athletic Lifestyle!
After spending almost 20 years as a competitive athlete, I am well aware of the demands training can have on your body, your schedule and your relationships. Adding kiddos to the mix can take what was an exciting challenge and make it seem next to impossible.
My goal is to help Athlete-Moms navigate the road from those early weeks of post-partum life to their return to training, on whatever level they desire, and even to competition. As a Naturopathic Physician, I honor the entirely individual path that each Athlete-Mom must take and support whatever emerging goals or life changes come to pass. I strive to help Athlete-Moms with some of the most challenging obstacles to their return to fitness such as hormone and mood imbalances, post-partum body changes and scheduling demands of family/work/athletics.

I’d love to discuss how I can help you thrive as a fit, energetic, confident and motivated Athlete-Mom.

“I have been working with Dr. Cole for several years and she is highly skilled at digging deep into complex medical issues. Her examinations and diagnostic orders are comprehensive and she never fails to be empathetic and compassionate in her nature. One specific trait I particularly appreciate about Dr. Cole is that she is willing to listen to treatment ideas I bring to her. If I read something I find interesting, she is never dismissive of my layperson efforts to learn how to heal my body. It’s a gift to find her in a sea of medical professionals who don’t take the time to look for the root cause of problems and/or don’t truly listen to their patient’s needs. You’ll be in great hands with Dr. Cole!”
“I highly recommend Dr. Cole! She is a compassionate teacher and expert guide through health issues and that is an incredible combination to have in a doctor! She is a total professional and I always feel heard when we talk. She takes her time to understand what is the real issue that is going on and not just stick a band-aid on a problem that you have to deal with later.”
