“As a Nutritionist and Health Coach I create conversation surrounding the connection between nourishment and healing. When we are not in harmony with our true nature we experience imbalances expressed as disease. Each of us is a bio individual, uniquely defined by our genetic and energetic makeup. I am here to walk alongside you in the management of cardio metabolic disease, blood sugar control, detoxification, Hashimoto’s, immune regulation, gastrointestinal (GI) health, and most importantly empowering you to be an advocate in your own health.”
