At the age of 19, after years of physical pain and mental anguish, I felt nothing would change about my health. I was always sick and over-prescribed, and my emotional well being was undernourished. I wasn’t heard, fully supported, or improving.
Discovering natural healing methods for mind and body finally led me toward health restoration. Over the last two decades, every year has brought more resilience, more inner knowing, and more strength to better heal myself. I was able to realize my dream and ability to serve my community by sharing this gift with those ready and committed to a real state of health.
My career in natural wellness started with massage therapy, craniosacral therapy, doula services, and Bradley childbirth education, and has evolved into serving mamas and their families in all aspects of their wellness. I have come alongside families in transforming their physical and mental health for more than 20 years and am leading the charge in raising up women who are devoted to their healing. The dynamic ripple effect is empowered women ascending and growing together.
I became a Nutrition Response Testing practitioner in 2011 after struggling with my own health for two decades. It was the only process that has seen me through whatever comes up in regards to my health and gets me to the other side. My training as a Clinical Master in Advanced Nutrition Response Testing has supported myself, my family, and my community immensely. It’s exciting being one of around 1,000 in the nation to hold this title. I serve clients both locally and internationally with a multi-faceted approach.
I am passionate about education and connection, among my clients, my team, my peers, and the greater community. I founded the Happy Healthy Kids and Empower Your Pregnancy telesummits, My Healthy Beginning lifestyle magazine, and the transformative virtual coaching program, Expand Your Resilience. My first book, Adapt: Building Resilience and the Ability to Thrive, is due to publish in May. I regularly speak on a wide variety of holistic health topics.
When not serving in-office and remote coaching clients, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three children in the kitchen and outdoors exploring and adventuring together.
I’ve spent ten of the last fifteen years pregnant or nursing (and loving MOST every minute of it) and running a bricks and mortar wellness clinic with a staff of 10. Since having my third baby at almost forty, the only resolution I have made is to allow myself a little grace with a side of cellulite.
