My background of working inside the traditional healthcare system led me to become a nutrition therapy practitioner (NTP). After years of not seeing enough improvement in people’s health, I become disheartened and determined to make a difference.
Over the span of my career I primarily worked for health insurance plans in sales, marketing and business development. I also worked in complementary and alternative medicine as well as lifestyle medicine, which were exciting opportunities in my career that gave me additional experience on how to integrate holistic practices with Western medicine.
I have always loved food and cooking, and it was eye-opening when I learned that certain foods I was eating were actually aggravating my GI tract. Being under a tremendous amount of stress at my job was another factor that created a situation where it was difficult for my body to heal itself. Although I didn’t feel good for many months, it did awaken me to pursue a career of holistic health and healing through nutrition, and I am grateful for this because now I get to share my experience and knowledge with clients to help them return to vitality.
My approach as a nutritionist is holistic. In other words, I look at how all areas of your health and life are connected. I peel back the layers to get clues about the underlying cause of your discomfort, illness or disease. I specialize in digestive disorders. I’ve found that if your gut is not healthy then you are not healthy — it’s all related. My practice focuses on you, as a unique person, and together we find nutrition, lifestyle, and even healthy aging solutions to put you on a path towards optimum health...for a lifetime. I create a custom program that empowers you to lead a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and supports your bio-individual needs.
I’m here for you based on what you need and where you are in your health journey. I will lend my expert knowledge and support to develop a custom program to meet your specific goals, and we’ll modify it along the way. It won’t be long before you start to feel improvements in your health.
