Heck, my first degree wasn’t even in nutrition, it was in Communications.
Then, I learned what it meant to truly suffer. I have battled a binge eating disorder, chronic pain due to degenerative disc disease, IBS , anxiety and severe depression. More recently, I have endured seeing my preschool son suffer from a severe stomach flu leaving him sick for weeks. I have struggled from long-COVID, unable to take care of my family for months. My heart was broken after the unexpected loss of a truly beloved pet.
As I reflect on my life journey, there are certain challenges that I have overcame that shaped me into the person I am today. I chose to carry my “luggage” with me as a constant reminder on how valuable your physical body truly is. Through my experience, I learned that when you are feeling great on the inside, you have more energy and self-confidence to go out into the world and follow your dreams. I believe we all are a light to this world, we just need to have the physical and mental resilience to let it shine.

While starting a new lifestyle program can be exciting at first, it requires time, energy and consistency to be successful long – term. During our sessions, I partner with you to set specific habit goals and ensure you are leaving 100% confident executing any task between appointments. My role is to offer accountability and help to guide and facilitate, but at the end of the day, I am not “the boss” and you will have the autonomy to create a lifestyle strategy and structure that makes sense for you so you are not feeling overwhelmed and stressed when the newness of the program wears off.
