In college, I studied science and nutrition and went on to earn my Registered Dietitian credentials. I always knew I wanted to one day have my own practice, but I also knew I needed experience and a solid foundation. So, Ive spent the past 9 years working in various clinical nutrition settings, helping people with a wide range of nutrition related issues. I'm talking everything from heart disease, GI conditions, diabetes, liver and kidney diseases, eating disorders, neurological conditions, tube feeding, weight loss and more! This experience has given me a knowledgeable foundation to start my own practice.
Although no amount of clinical work could prepare me for my own journey..
In my mid-twenties I had a cluster of various life stressors that took a toll on my body. I couldn't maintain my weight, I lost over 50% of my hair, my joints ached, and my gut and metabolic health hit rock bottom. Traditional doctors ran tests that showed everything as normal and offered little answers. Feeling hopeless and desperate for solutions, I decided to take matters into my own hands. I wasn't going to wait any longer for western medicine to figure out what was going on with my body. During this time I also watched my father battle illnesses and lose his life to preventable diseases. I saw that misinformation was a major issue within the healthcare system. This all impacted me to pursue continued studies and training in functional nutrition from a holistic approach and take charge of my own health through diet and exercise. I have to admit, restoring my health didn't happen overnight. It took many months to years of dedication; it took learning a new way of life.
But I promise you, a healthy life doesn’t have to be as complicated as it seems! There is an overwhelming amount of misinformation online regarding health and nutrition. Let me help you uncomplicate it and discover what's best for YOU without depriving yourself by going on restrictive diets that aren't designed for long term success. After all food is meant to be enjoyable!
