My Story

 

I'm endlessly passionate about health and nutrition and even more passionate about helping YOU find a style of eating that suits your body and your lifestyle.  There is no one-size-fits all approach when it comes to functional nutrition because everyone's body responds differently to various foods. 

 

How do I know this? After years of practicing as a conventional dietitian, personal trainer, and health coach I developed life-altering chronic fatigue.  I went from being very athletic my whole life to barely being able to walk around the block.  After finding no answers from my conventional practitioners I had to quit my job and move back in with my parents.  I realized I needed to rely on myself to figure out how to restore my health. 

 

How did I climb out of the "health hole" I was in? I began devouring all things functional medicine and obtained a certification as a functional medicine nutritionist and received a master's degree in nutrition and functional medicine.  I used my education about nutrition and lifestyle through the functional medicine lens to help heal my body.

 

Now, I'm on a mission to help you do the same.
