“What l eat affects my mood and the way l feel and in turn affects my day.  When making dietary changes, it important that we take baby steps each day toward our health goals.  Small changes add up to big changes”
My Story


“My own personal health issues were my original inspiration to become a holistic nutritionist. Nagging health problems plagued me, such as food sensitivities, difficulty sleeping, brain fog, skin rashes, low energy and I was addicted to certain foods, especially sugar. After many visits to specialists and numerous medical tests,  the results failed to show any health issues.  Frustrated with the medical system’s lack of understanding what was the causing my symptoms. 


After several years of being passed through the system, l was finally diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease, a type of autoimmune condition that affects the thyroid.  While it was a relief to finally get a diagnosis, it was scary at the same time.  It helped put me on the right path to find a way to heal my body through lifestyle and dietary changes.  It has been a challenging road to recovery but with time and patience, l have seen significant improvements to my health, and l feel great! Changing my diet has improved many of the symptoms.  My skin problems have cleared, my hormones are more balanced, the nodule that pressed into my throat has been dramatically reduced, and my thyroid antibodies have decreased. 


My passion is to help others feel better and improve their health through nutrition and lifestyle changes.  l love to cook and create recipes that are healing and healthy.   My recipes are created specific to your health condition that leave you feeling satisfied, healthy and nourished.   The same healthy eating and lifestyle changes can be applied to weight loss, eliminating food sensitivities, improved energy and glowing skin.  The right food is medicine, the right food is essential and the right food is powerful.
