Hi! Thanks for stopping by and visiting my school of thoughts! Before I dive into what you’ll learn from my blog and what I offer as a life coach, let me give you some background about me.
Growing up, I was given the nickname, “D-Rob”. There isn’t really a huge explanation to why or how it came about, it just sort of happened. You see, my full name is Derek (yes the same spelling as Derek Jeter) Roberts, and “D-Rob” is a simple abbreviation of my first and last names. As I went on through high school and college, the nickname just stuck. (Just like my love for the Yankees).
Several years ago, I caught strep throat which triggered a series of illnesses, including lyme, that eventually led to a diagnosis of two autoimmune diseases; ankylosis spondylitis and psoriatic arthritis. (You can read about that entire journey in my first post, “The Heart of a Lion”. The struggle I went through transformed me into the kind, compassionate, and empathetic man I am today.
Currently I teach middle school full time. I have my Bachelor’s degree in Health and Physical Education as well as my Master’s degree in Special Education. I played sports my entire life, including 4 years as a Pitcher for a top Northeast division 1 baseball program.
Because of my background and history, I have a passion for holistic health. I believe in the healing power of food and nutrition, and can help you transform your health just by diet alone. I also specialize in mindfulness, stress relief, and athletic performance/psychology.
If you’d like more information about my services, my background, or what to expect in a life coaching session with me, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “School of thoughts”, or simply leave a comment below.

Peace and love, 🧘🏻♂️
