WHO AM I?
IIN Health Coach
My personal health journey began over 13 years ago when I began suffering from chronic fatigue, insomnia, dizziness, and weight gain. I had always been fit and prioritized my health, but I couldn't seem to fix it this time or where to begin. I saw countless doctors but very few had the time to investigate the root-cause of my issues. From there, I was given several diagnoses (POTS, PCOS, infertility, thyroid issues) and told I would likely never have children. I always felt powerless and like most doctors were just masking my symptoms with pharmaceuticals. Obviously medications have a place in our society, but I also think they are heavily over prescribed and often do not actually treat or address the underlying issue.
After much frustration, I decided to give functional medicine a try; where the focus is on root-cause which is where I had my first interaction with a Health Coach. They really took the time to learn my entire health history and for the first time in years, I felt heard. That was a major shift for me because I began to have hope that someone was on my side and was going to be in the trenches with me to help me heal. Fortunately, with the help of my functional doctor and coach, we were able to determine the cause of many of my health matters was due to hidden Lyme and mold exposure. Once I began to heal, I eventually realized I had more power over my health than led to believe and with their support, I regained control of my health. I now view optimal health as decentralized vs. centralized which we see in the conventional paradigm.
I have discovered and learned so much over the years in regard to my own wellness. Three healthy kids later, I decided to shift my goals and knew my purpose was to help others achieve their own goals through support, education, and accountability. Combining knowledge with experience in nutrition and wellness, I help my clients develop personal goals and implement strategies to reach their full potential.
Help clients identify the areas in their life they wish to improve upon using client-specific goals and action plans designed to reach their full potential so they can thrive
