With a passion for science, I have dedicated over 25 years to the field of dietetics. However, my journey took an unexpected turn when my husband was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition. It became clear that dietetics lacked the necessary tools to navigate the complexities of autoimmunity and guide my husband towards healing.

As well, I ended up landing myself in the hospital with a stage IV hip fracture. At the age of 28 due to the unfortunate combination of excessive exercise, under-nutrition, and a devastating heartbreak. I was placed alongside 80-90 year old women with osteoporosis and I wondered why this was happening to me.

Motivated by these experiences, I made it my mission to expand my knowledge about nutrition and holistic health. I delved into extensive research to gain a deeper understanding of how food and lifestyle choices can address autoimmune issues, inflammation, hormonal imbalances, infertility, neurodegenerative decline, cardiac concerns, and various chronic conditions. Recognizing that there was still much to learn, I returned to the classroom to pursue a Master's in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine.




Through this journey, I not only successfully guided my husband towards recovery, steering him away from life-altering surgery and reducing dependency on medications, but I also discovered the profound impact of Functional Medicine.


Sharing these details about my personal journey is my way of conveying a deep understanding of the frustration and sadness that can accompany a compromised physical condition. I've known the relentless yearning to simply be "normal," the confusion surrounding the why and how of such challenges, and the unattainable desire to rewind time and reshape outcomes.

Amidst your condition and health struggles, I want to be a place of hope. I want to empower individuals and provide practical tools to help them succeed in their health journey. I firmly believe in the possibility of enhancing health and the quality of life, and I am here to guide others towards that brighter, healthier future.
