A bit about me
Hi! I'm a mom of 3 kiddos, wife to a handsome firefighter, and Family Nurse Practitioner for the past 6 years. I love reading books, laughing with my husband, dancing with the kids, sunshine on my face, and a morning cup of matcha.
I've always been fascinated with the human body. It wasn't until mine began to break down during nursing school that I began to pay more attention. For more than a decade, I've been caring for others in the healthcare field while simultaneously healing myself. I treated my IBS with a low-FODMAP diet before it was mainstream. A few years later, I enlisted the help of a Functional Medicine Practitioner (and my boss and mentor) to figure out why I was so tired and couldn't lose weight. Turns out I had mold toxicity from the addition in our home. After overcoming mold, I'm now faced with chronic stress from my sweet Parker. She is my third child and has a rare genetic disorder: congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS). Her disease affects her almost entirely while she's asleep aka when I should be sleeping. It's been a rough road but has ultimately married two of the most important principles in functional medicine, namely gut health and stress management.
I leverage what I'm able to and I make peace with the rest. Parker has inspired me to live in the moment and encourage others to do the same. Life is short and wonderful. Nobody has time to Google their symptoms and cobble together a complicated, time-sucking treatment plan.
Inspired by my own struggles, I've created a 12-week foundational lifestyle program in Functional Medicine. I equip clients with stress management tools and a simplified gut-healing protocol so they can quickly, effectively, and (most importantly) easily reclaim their foundational health.
