Growing up I was overweight and ate a diet made up of convenient, processed foods. Then, when I was 16 years old, I had a tonsillectomy that resulted in weight loss. Seeing that I actually had muscle beneath my fat was enough to inspire me to abandon the unhealthy habits I had learned — I started exercising regularly, preparing nutritious meals and moving toward a holistic way of living.
As happy as I was about my new way of life, I was even more ecstatic when I learned I could make a career out of helping others do the same.
Behind every passion, there’s a story. My wellness story started with significant digestive issues as a child that landed me at the doctor’s office countless times with no clear answers. Later as a young adult I struggled with mood and hormone issues that disrupted my life, every single month. As I started to notice the impact that exercise, food, and mindset had on my own health, I decided to pursue a career that allowed me to connect these dots for my clients as well.
