about

 

 

Thanks for stopping by. I’m a functional nutritionist, holistic coach, and speaker who is on a mission to help women better understand their bodies, feel good, and get inspired.

 

But why?

 

Simply put, women don’t get the support they deserve. Often when we go to the doctor, we’re told what we’re experiencing is a normal part of the aging process (even in our 30’s!?!?), our hormones, or that it’s “just the way it is.” Then, we’re given a prescription and sent on our way.

 

There’s a better way. And I know it’s true, because I’ve experienced it all first hand.

 

I’d like to say that I have always treated my body well…. but that would be a lie. I spent many, many years eating fast food, drinking too much, spreading myself too thin, & fueling myself on coffee & quick snacks. I really didn’t pay much attention to what I ate or how it made me feel.

 

So how did I end up here? Sometimes I ask myself that same question. It’s not the path I had planned. Really, I’d say it chose me.

 

Let me take you back a few years…

 

In 2013, life felt pretty good. My second son was born & completed our family of four. I had a fancy job title in my corporate career. Life was busy. All my boxes were checked. {Insert the record scratch} At 2 months old, my son started showing symptoms that were considered “normal” by my pediatrician, but not to me. When I asked for help, I was offered steroid creams. It took me a few months to trust my gut, but I just knew his tiny body was trying to tell me something. That eventually lead to my pediatrician yelling at me in her office – and my last visit with her.  Being an over-stressed mom of a baby that was dropping in weight percentile & covered in eczema, it wasn’t easy to stand my ground.

 

I didn’t know the answers, but I knew they weren’t there.

 

This became a moment

That. Would. Change. Everything.

Being a naturally curious {and kinda stubborn} person, I started to look for something that made sense. Since my son, Jack, was still nursing, I was the one to make the changes. Starting with my diet. Within four weeks I noticed major improvements. All of the eczema cleared up. His chronic diarrhea went away. His energy changed so much he was like a different baby! And… he started to gain weight!!

 

But it didn’t stop there. My health changed too. Things I never really thought about began to shift. I had WAY more energy. I stopped getting sick 4-5 times a year with a cold that just wouldn’t go away. And my skin completely changed. No more painful acne bumps along my jaw. I could finally go make-up free without feeling embarrassed! {If you’ve ever struggled with skin problems, you know what a big deal this is.}

 

Also, this process began to open me up in a way that I didn’t know was closed. I felt more connected and inspired. More me. All of these changes majorly impacted my life and my ability to show up in a bigger and better way. Who knew that changing my relationship with food & my body could eventually lead to all of this??

The more I learned, the more I experienced, the more I wanted to know. 

What began as a passion project to heal my son, became a whole lot more.

I realized I wasn’t the only woman confused on how to best support myself, not being understood in doctors’ offices, and struggling to find someone to help. Although it wasn’t an easy decision at the time, I chose to go back to school {and eventually quit my corporate career} to pursue nutrition & holistic health full-time. Like my own journey, my education followed my curiosity.

 

I quickly discovered there is never just one path to healing your body.

 

And if I’m going to lead you through this process, I want to offer more than just nutrition guidance. So, yes, I’m an Integrative & Functional Nutrition Certified Practitioner through the Integrative & Functional Nutrition Academy (IFNA) and a Certified International Health Coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) & International Association of Health Coaches (IAHC). But, I have also studied clinical nutrition, stress management techniques including breath work & meditation, mindset practices, herbal remedies, and more. This journey led me to integrate all these practices in to my signature program, The IntuitiveMethod ™, that combines effective, science-based practices with listening to your own body.

which leads me to you

I am here to help bring out the best possible version of you. She’s in there; tired of feeling {tired, uninspired, stuck, and alone}. I’ve got you, and I’m so glad you’re here. My practice is built on being a force for change, because women deserve better. And I am committed to offering a variety of ways to support you, because let’s face it — life is full. And please don’t expect endless sciency-jargon here — I’m all about breaking the science down in a way that’s approachable. It’s important that you understand how everything applies to your real life.
