MY

STORY

I am a certified Mind Body Nutrition Coach from the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, and I'm also a Licensed Physical Therapist. I have received advanced education in Digestive Mastery and Insulin Resistance at the Institute of Nutritional Endocrinology, and I want to help women in their 40s who suffer from joint pain, digestive issues, and autoimmune conditions build a stronger immunity from the inside out. 

I grew up in Atlanta and received degrees in Psychology and Physical Therapy. Throughout my 24 years of being a PT in the hospital system, I noticed my patients were getting sicker and younger, many of whom were suffering from autoimmune disorders, Stroke, Diabetes, and Cancer. When I started developing Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and Inflammatory Arthritis, I knew I didn't want to lose my independence and take multiple medications like the patients I had seen. After diving into research, I realized that symptoms were just the body's way of communicating something is out balance. If the root of the problem could be discovered, the body would rebalance, and the symptoms would fall away. Some issues are physical but others lie deeper and can impact the ability to heal.

I want to share the incredible knowlege I've learned with others so people can be empowered to turn their lives around and not spend their later years incapacitated like so many patients I've treated. By embracing your health journey, exploring your past, and learning to nourish yourself again, you can work to regain your vitality and spend your energy focusing on serving your purpose in the world and live life in joy instead of being consumed in a world of illness. Life is supposed to be fun. Listen to your proactive soul! 

"with everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what happened as a gift.  Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose."

Dr. Wayne Dyer
