Health is a way of life and it is my goal to help others to optimize their way of living.

With being faced with a autoimmune disease at the young age of 25 I was forced to look deeper then I ever have into my health. Although my path had guided me to the realm of healing arts at a young age, and inspired me to make my health as enriched as I could this instance brought it all to reality. 

When I ate certain foods I felt groggy and achy, then other foods made me energized and limber. At this point I knew that in order to help others to heal , I needed to learn to heal myself first. So I did.

 

At 16 I started my journey towards helping others to connect to their health by attending massage therapy school and graduating with honors by the age of 17 and beginning my practice. At 21 I studied deeply in the yoga community in San Diego and New York City. During that time I trained under a Native American healer  for over a year delving into herbal medicine. I ventured into working for a Ayurvedic doctor out of Boulder CO  as a panchakarma therapist, so again using herbal medicine, body constitution principals and massage therapy to help this community. At that time I became more enchanted with food and herbs. I learned a great deal working for him. I attended the Living Light Culinary Institute for RAW and living foods in FT Bragg CA, to become certified as a RAW Food's Chef. Being so inspired by food, I then enrolled and graduated from Bauman College as a Natural Chef and Nutrition Consultant.

That didn't stop my love for learning, a few years later I would delve deeper into my herbal studies at Moondance Botanicals, and then to graduate as a Advanced Clinical Herbalist and Clinical Nutritionist from The Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism. 

Over my healing journey I have gained a deep passion and curiosity around genetics and epigenetics, along with functional medicine. Most recently I joined and trained through an advanced community of practitioners at Metabolic Healing as a Master Functional Lab Test Evaluator. This training has expanded my scope of understanding each clients case in far more depth then most nutritionist, gaining my clients and myself much faster results. Upon graduating from this program I earned the ability to order any and all Functional labs as well as any lab work through labcorp. This gives my clients the freedom to work solely with me  to get to the root cause of their health issues.
