I had always been someone to get sick often, which knowing what I know now is not surprising, but finally reached my illness breaking point in spring 2016 when getting out of bed each day felt a feat akin to climbing Everest. Chronic inflammation, low grade fever, indigestion…I had it all. I also had enough of the life of extreme stress, emotional eating, endless indulgence of my sugar addiction, and quickly realized if I didn’t change something soon, being the always-sick person would become my status quo.
So, I threw myself into the world of food as medicine. I became certified in Food Therapy through the Natural Gourmet Institute, began my Masters of Science in Nutrition and Integrative Health at Maryland University of Integrative Health, and enrolled in an Eating Psychology Coaching Program at the Institute for the Psychology of Eating so that I could understand the mentality connection–truly merging mind-body-nutrition.
After years of self-experimentation and learning from the most incredible teachers and mentors, I am ready to share my knowledge and help others find their way to a life filled with energy, zest, and a loving, peaceful relationship with their bodies.
