GET TO KNOW ME

I am a functional medicine nurse health coach, wife, and mama who is passionate about helping others overcome their health struggles in order to thrive! 

I know what it’s like to have an uphill battle with your health. At 10 years old, I was diagnosed with stage IV kidney cancer.  Shortly after completing conventional cancer treatments, I was diagnosed with scoliosis and multiple health issues affecting my heart, blood sugar, and circulation. My immune system also took a hit and a result, I spent most of my childhood sick.

In 2011, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune thyroid disease. My symptoms were extensive, including constipation, sluggishness, brain fog, extreme fatigue, hair loss, irregular body temperature, dry skin and face rashes. I was barely able to function, and my symptoms only continued to get worse. I was left with more questions than answers. 

After five years of multiple doctor visits and no real answers, I decided to take matters into my own hands. I began to extensively research all things health-related and started making gradual changes to my diet. I also switched to non-toxic personal care and cleaning products after learning about their harmful effects on our bodies.

For the first time in years, there was a significant improvement in my symptoms. I was even able to wean off my medication entirely even though my doctors had repeatedly stressed that I would be on it for the rest of my life.

I had more energy. I was happier. I was healthierI was finally thriving after so many years of struggling.
