Hi, I'm Madeline.

I’m a University of Michigan grad who began my career in advertising, working for the nation’s largest fast food chain. After realizing that promoting an unhealthy lifestyle was completely misaligned with my true path, I left to pursue my passion in health and wellness. I started Lux Lake and became a Certified Health Coach in hopes that my journey to help others would also allow me to repair my own unhealthy relationship with food and body image.

My approach to health is a holistic one. Through my journey, I’ve discovered that you can do all of the fancy external things to heal yourself, but you will never be achieve long-term success unless you repair what’s going on internally.

My health coaching programs are designed around my understanding that people are unable to reach their health goals because of the destructive patterns and limiting beliefs that they’ve unknowingly been carrying around with them since childhood. Once they reprogram and release these subconscious behaviors and shame, they are able to truly heal and begin to make decisions based on their new found self-worth.

WHAT I DO / why I do it.


I used to have a very damaged and unhealthy relationship with food and my body image.
For years I was stuck in a vicious cycle of obsessing over food, overeating, nonstop criticism of my body, followed by a restrictive diet and a promise that I'd "have more control next time". This constant battle with my body and the belief that my self-worth was based on my physical appearance, impacted almost every area of my life.

What I wanted more than anything was to find the "magical health formula" so that I could end dieting forever,  reach my ideal weight,
stop thinking about food all of the time, end the constant disapproval of my body and, finally, live my life! 
I figured that if I could do these things, I would not only be much happier, but I would finally become the person I knew I was meant to be.
I just didn't understand why it was so hard. If it was what I desired most, why couldn't I figure out how to make it happen?

So, after years of trial and error and endless research, I eventually healed myself.
My quality of life has improved dramatically. I have reached my ideal weight. I have heaps of energy. I value and respect myself. I am completely in tune with my body. I no longer diet and have a very healthy relationship with food.
But most importantly, I feel like I've found my true, authentic self and purpose.
This is now my normal and the cycle has ended.

Along my journey, I realized it’s not all about the healthy eating and consistent exercise routine. In fact, with those elements alone, you will never find true health and happiness. It’s about self-worth and discovering the truth behind why you’re was unable to reach your health goals. It takes repairing the internal in order for the external body to heal.

I decided to become a Health Coach to share this wisdom but also because when I was going through this journey, I was completely alone. I was embarrassed to talk about it because I believed my struggles with food weren't worthy of help or understanding. I was ashamed of myself and thought I needed to just figure it out on my own. I eventually did. But I know that if I had had guidance along the way, someone to push me to look inward and to motivate me when I was struggling, I would have healed much quicker. 

I want you to know that you are not alone and your struggles are worthy.
