I began my wellness journey 13 years ago after the birth of my third child. As a lover of strength training, cycling, running, and swimming, I was shocked by the intense joint pain I experienced immediately after giving birth. This marked the beginning of a challenging and lengthy journey where I researched, experimented, and hit roadblocks while trying to diagnose and treat my symptoms.
Despite appearing fit and muscular, I felt exhausted, unwell, and immensely frustrated with my body. Over time, my symptoms progressed to include GI issues, brain fog, and fatigue, making it more difficult to manage.
Despite the setbacks, I persevered and continued searching for ways to improve my health. Eventually, I discovered Functional Medicine, which helped me uncover the underlying cause of my problems. By making changes to my diet and exercise routines, I was able to achieve long-lasting and significant improvements in my quality of life, reversing my symptoms.
As a Board Certified Functional Medicine health coach, I have become passionate about guiding teenagers to wellness. As a mother of three daughters, I have seen firsthand how important it is to teach our children about the importance of nutrition, mindset, and movement from an early age. Watching my own daughters begin to make informed choices as teenagers has only strengthened my desire to help as many teens as possible make the same connections and start their own wellness journeys at an earlier age. My ultimate goal is to empower teens with a toolset that can help them on their journey to becoming the best versions of themselves mentally, physically and emotionally.
I understand that the teenage years can be a challenging time for both teens and their parents. My goal is to provide support and guidance that empowers both to achieve their wellness goals. By working with me, parents and teens can expect a personalized approach that takes into account each individual’s unique needs and challenges. I am committed to creating a safe and non-judgmental space for my clients to explore their health and wellness goals. I provide ongoing support and accountability as they work towards achieving those goals. As a Board Certified Functional Medicine health coach, I am dedicated to guiding teenagers towards a holistic approach to wellness, equipped with a comprehensive toolset that will support them in becoming the best versions of themselves – mentally, physically, and emotionally. My ultimate goal is to help teens cultivate a lifetime of wellness and vitality.
