How my affair began......
My love affair with health began long ago, and like most relationships we've had our ups and downs. Like so many young woman I struggled with my weight. I was inactive and ate poorly and as a result I weighed 40 pounds more than I wanted to. Over the last few years I have also struggled with chronic fatigue and stomach problems. Tired of being sick and tired I decided to take action.
I began a journey of researching and learning about the reasons for my health issues. I read every nutrition book and article I could get my hands on. I had a hunch that I had a sensitivity to wheat and got tested. Sure enough I did. That was part of the reason for my stomach pain, bloating, and fatigue. I also began to learn how to clean up my diet and lifestyle, which took care of the rest of my issues. I now feel fantastic!
After many years of having health as my hobby I decided to make it my profession. I have been unofficially coaching my friends and family for years, sometimes unsolicited, but in the end always appreciated. I found the Institute for Integrative Nutrition after about a year of research and determined that it was the best choice for me to get the well rounded education I desired. I am so honored and excited to be able to help people be the healthiest and happiest version of themselves possible!
