Who do I work with most of the time?
I work with lots of types. However, the ones I work with the most are women who are already proactive. They really want to understand how to dial in their food to make everything else they are doing work even better. Many are fitness minded but might struggle with that last 10 pounds, meal planning, or are seeking more confidence around educating their children about food.
I also work with a lot of women recovering from chemotherapy, gallbladder removal, leaky gut, etc. This type of client has typically become exhausted with the western medicine mindset. They find me when they are ready to embrace natural approaches to healing and when they are ready to amend damaging food relationships but aren’t sure how to start.
Because of my own battle with hormone imbalance, I tend to attract many women struggling with this also. I have quite a bit of experience strategizing hormonal balance for suffers of PCOS, menopause, adrenal burnout, etc.
A diverse range of services that utilize my expertise include:
• One-on-one counseling
• Cooking Classes
• Seminars and Workshops
• Corporate Consulting
• Motivational Speaking
Chances are if you are reading this, we have a lot in common.
Once upon a time I too was looking for someone to guide my health. Struggles with my own body started me on a journey that I continue to this day. In the beginning I was frustrated. Destructive diet habits coupled with endless amounts of conflicting information motivated me to take matters into my own hands. My burning desire was to seek the truth. The more I learned, the more I realized just how needful this kind of service really is. That need became my call to purpose. I love what I do.
I graduated from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in 2010, first certified in nutrition with AFPA in 2007, and am board certified through the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. I am currently a practicing member with the Nutritional Therapist Association working toward completing the NTC program in 2017.
I have personally studied under master healer and health guru Andrea Beaman, who emphasizes intuitive concepts in all areas of the body. Personal interests have led me to study all of the dietary theories with concentrations in Ayruvedic traditions and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Most importantly, I thrive on using food as medicine in a way that is applicable and realistic—combining the knowledge of traditional philosophies with modern concepts.
I want to share everything I have learned with you! It will change your life just like it changed it mine. That is my guarantee to you.
