My background of working inside the traditional healthcare system led me to become a nutrition therapy practitioner. After years of not seeing enough improvement in people’s health, I become disheartened and determined to make a difference. Over the span of my career I primarily worked for health insurance plans in sales, marketing and business development. I also worked in complementary and alternative medicine as well as lifestyle medicine, which were exciting opportunities in my career that gave me additional experience on how to integrate holistic practices with Western medicine.
I have always loved food and cooking, and it was eye-opening when I learned that certain foods I was eating were actually aggravating my GI tract. Being under a tremendous amount of stress at my job was another factor that created a situation where it was difficult for my body to heal itself. Although I didn’t feel good for many months, it did awaken me to pursue a career of holistic health and healing through nutrition, and I am grateful for this because now I get to share my experience and knowledge with clients to help them return to vitality.
My approach is holistic. In other words, I look at how all areas of your health and life are connected. I peel back the layers to determine the underlying cause of your discomfort, illness or disease. I specialize in digestive disorders. I’ve found that if your gut is not healthy then you are not healthy — it’s all related. My practice focuses on you, as a unique person, and together we find nutrition, lifestyle, and even healthy aging solutions to put you on a path towards optimum health...for a lifetime. I create a custom program that empowers you to lead a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and supports your bio-individual needs.
I’m here for you based on what you need and where you are in your health journey. I will lend my expert knowledge and support to develop a custom program to meet your specific goals, and we’ll modify it along the way. It won’t be long before you start to feel improvements in your health.
I am a graduate of the Nutrition Therapy Institute (NTI) in Denver, CO. NTI provides a foundation of skills and knowledge in holistic nutrition. The program is rooted in science and delves into specific areas of nutrition that are relevant to helping people attain optimal health, including Digestion & Detoxification, Clinical Nutrition, Weight Management, Food Therapy and Nutrients. I also attended Sage Colleges in Albany, NY and received a Master of Business Administration from Simmons School of Management, Boston, MA.
National Association of Nutrition Professionals (NANP)
I am a member of this organization dedicated to the principles of holistic health and education. NANP is a community of nutrition professionals who collaborate and share evidence on the efficacy of holistic methods. NANP professionals put into practice the natural approach to nutrition and healing even for the most challenging health conditions.
