Food has played a powerful role in my life for as long as I can remember. From watching my mom struggle with her weight and severe food allergies most of her life, to helping me help my partner heal her body during and after breast cancer treatment. Good nutrition and nurturing myself and others have always been part of my life experience.
It was a visit to my Nutritionist over 20 years ago that absolutely transformed my life. I thought I was just going to get help with hypoglycemia, brain fog and lack of energy. Little did I know that taking charge of my nutrition would empower me to not only feel better, but realize how out of balance I was in many aspects of my life. I needed to heal my whole life. Food started me on a life-changing journey and inspired me to help others through nurturing their own lives.
My most important accomplishments are being wife to my partner of 13 years, and mom to my kids ages 21 and 23. I currently work in private practice and as a practitioner at Dr. Wendy Warner's office, Medicine in Balance as a Nutrition & Holistic Health Coach.
I’m a lifelong learner and strive to expand my knowledge. I graduated from The Academy of Natural Health Sciences with a 500-hour certification in Clinical Nutrition in 2017; completed holistic and integral coach training from Wisdom of the Whole Coaching Academy in 2014; graduated from the National Institute of Whole Health as a Whole Health Coach in 2011; and I’m a certified massage therapist and registered yoga teacher since 2001.
Personally, I’ve been a devoted yoga practitioner for over 24 years and take great satisfaction with my daily meditation practice and studies. I’ve had many wonderful teachers in my life who have inspired and challenged me to continue to seek a better life for myself and for others.
