It is my passion to help others find foods and make lifestyle choices to help them feel their best. I love to educate clients on the power of food as medicine and then watch them empower themselves to make lifestyle changes. Once you have your health, the possibilities are endless!
I received my undergraduate degree in Emergency Medicine from the University of Pittsburgh and my health coaching certificate from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. My career decisions stem from my health struggles starting at the age of 5. Following a routine tonsillectomy, I experienced near death complications that resulted in multiple abdominal surgeries and hospitalizations. By the age of 19, I was prescribed 13 different medications. Everyday was a struggle and I was miserable. I changed my diet, lifestyle, and I decided to eliminate medications without help from the physicians who insisted that I would not survive without them. I realized that all of my “illnesses” stemmed from a severe gluten sensitivity. In time, my foggy brain, PMS, allergies, migraines, depression, anxiety, asthma, and chronic abdominal pain all went away
As a child I was always at the mercy of my physician. It wasn’t until I took responsibility and put my health in my own hands that I started to feel better. It is now my passion to help others make their health a priority in their lives. When we have our health, we have everything.
