My Training

After working many years as a Health Administrator I was stressed, tired, and burnt out. Looking for more balance and a way to feed my intuitive spirit, I started studying the connection between nutrition and well-being. I quickly realized that human health did not begin or end at a doctor’s written order and that my patients were seeking holistic solutions and understanding.

I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories – Ayurveda, gluten-free, Paleo, raw, vegan, macrobiotics, and everything in between.

My education has equipped me with extensive, cutting-edge knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and prevention. Drawing on my expertise, I work with my clients to help make lifestyle changes and choose health-promoting ways that produce real and lasting results. You will develop a deeper understanding of food and lifestyle choices that work best for you, improving your energy, balance, health, and happiness.
