As a teenager, I perused the local bookstore, searching for answers to my own health issues that included low energy, hormonal imbalances, and intense food cravings.

Spirituality and mindfulness were a key focus once I reached adulthood, integrating an awareness of body-mind connections.

Although I recognized the importance of a healthy diet, I mainly focused on exercise during my 20’s and 30’s, becoming a certified fitness coach and attending massage school before having my first child. 

Pregnancy and parenting certainly stir things up. Working on my own rebalancing act, I was shocked to learn that my infant son had food allergies. After spending hours researching the “whys” to food allergies, I gained new perspectives into wellness.

As I grow wiser, I experience the many changes that women face. I’m passionate about mentoring women and helping them achieve balance in an often chaotic world.

Because of these many paths taken, I am in-tune with the complexities and unique qualities of your journey. I am truly honored to guide you to greater health and wholeness
