“My passion for nutritional therapy began over 25 years ago when I embarked on a journey to address my own health challenges. At that time I was overweight and fatigued and I wasn’t even 25! As I achieved my optimal health goals I discovered the benefits of nutrition beyond weight loss and uncovered a desire to help others experience the benefits of nutritional therapy. There is nothing I enjoy more then to hear from the client who has a positive cholesterol follow up with her doctor, the diabetic who reduced his blood glucose, the college student who was amazed by how clear headed and focused he felt after getting his IBS under control.”

“I continually look to nutritional therapy again and again, to preserve my health and wellness while facing some of the same challenges that many of my clients experience, especially as we age. Given the dynamics of our bodies, we are constantly changing over the course of time, further challenging us to help our bodies continually adapt.“
