If you’ve been part of my Embrace Health and Wellness community for awhile now, there’s a few things you know about me:
- I believe we all have the power to heal ourselves (or keep our good health!) in a holistic way, using functional nutrition, daily exercise, stress balancing techniques, and reducing toxic exposure.
- I am all about empowering women to live a full, ’heck-ya’ life! I believe that happens by first making sure we have our health, because without it, it’s like trying to shine our 1000 watts through a 100 watt light bulb.
- I’m passionate about providing information that is accessible, easy to use, and doesn’t throw your already busy-to-the-brim life over the edge.
Before I became a mother I became passionate about holistic health when I was feeling let down by our healthcare system. I could take a powder for this and a pill for that, but the issue was still there, just masked. So, in 2002 I opened a holistic health studio as a way to bring myriad modalities together and create a place we could gather as a community and have all of our needs met in an integrative way, combining naturopaths, acupuncturists, massage therapists, yoga & pilates classes. This is where my deep passion for natural and functional medicine began!
A few years later, now a mother of 2 boys, one of which has had auto-immune issues since birth, I decided to go back to school and study what I’d become so passionate about so I could become the practitioner I knew I was called to be: a functional nutritionist & transformational wellness counselor. Thus began my deeper journey in cleaning up my food, my lifestyle, my home environment, and helping hundreds of women reclaim their bodies and restore their glow.
