Why I coach

Once upon a time I dreamed of creating spaces that made people feel good. This materialized into a love affair with lighting and some pretty fancy accolades to go along with it. However after a dozen years working as an electrical engineer in the consturction industry I was officially “tired and wired.”

Nights and weekends were spent wrestling with my family’s food sensitivities and unpredictable digestion. I struggled to support everyone physically, mentally and emotionally through proper nutrition. Various practitioners threw around the term “adrenal fatigue” on a half dozen occasions. Something had to change. And before my eyes my “hobby” morphed into a bonafide full-time career.

I relate to my clients as a “thriver” of food sensitivity complications and a busy mom. I’ll say it over and over – nutrition is about progress, not perfection. I offer one-on-one coaching as well as workshops on elimination diets, clean eating, gut health, kombucha and adrenal fatigue. My goal is to help individuals and families reclaim their health and dial up their vitality through a series of sustainable nutrition and wellness practices. Contact me and let’s get glowing!
