My journey to holistic living began as a result of decades of digestive and skin problems. After both of my kids were
diagnosed with gluten and dairy intolerance, I started to put the pieces of my puzzle together and gained a deep desire to figure out and understand my health issues. My quest lasted for several years and through seeing several different doctors.
I began realizing that we truly are what we eat and what we eat has a direct effect on how we feel and behave. I grew a deep desire and determination to heal myself and my children. This desire led me to become certified as a Holistic Health and Wellness Counselor. During my studies and doctor visits, I discovered that I have two auto-immune diseases, Celiac and Hashimotos, as well
as a vicious sugar addiction which was creating unwanted candida in my gut and was the main culprit of my skin issues. Unfortunately, some of my issues were passed down to my children. We now understand what foods are off limits and what foods can improve our wellness. The
health of my entire family has been transformed!
I received my training through the Institute for Integrative
Nutrition's cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program. During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts.
My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge
in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
