As a lifelong lover of food, I’ve always loved experimenting with different recipes and trying different types of cuisine. It wasn’t until my father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2005 that I started to make the connection between diet and health. I pored over books about nutrition and its relationship to disease and chronic illness, and was blown away at the medicinal properties that food can have. Since that time, I’ve experimented with different diets and creating healthy meals for myself and my family.
I spent a decade as a trial attorney, fueled by caffeine and stress. During this time I also became a mom, and as most working moms can relate, my own mental and physical health took a backseat. As I started to become burned out and dissatisfied with my career, I turned back to my passion for nutrition and began working with a whole food nutritional products company. Over the past several years, I’ve attended countless trainings where I heard doctors and healthcare professionals talk about the power of nutrition. I saw firsthand the significant impact that diet can have on a person’s health. Inspired by my own experiences, I decided to go back to school to become a certified integrative health coach.
I attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition for my professional training, and am certified by the American Association for Drugless Practitioners. I also hold a Bachelor of Science from the University of Puget Sound and a Juris Doctor from Northeastern University.
My mission as your health coach is to figure out what makes you feel your best and help you to achieve optimal health and fulfillment. There is no “one size fits all” solution, and so I work with each client to create a plan that will best serve you, and give you the tools to live a long, healthy life!
