An autoimmune butt kicker who firmly believes we are empowered in creating our quality of life!
A Nutrition & Lifestyle Coach, and Speaker who inspires possibilities in Health.
From a unique place of understanding and experience, I understand first hand that living with chronic illness can be terrifying, defeating and pained with limits. I also know that improved Health and Quality of Life is possible - with the right knowledge and tools.
In January 2000, I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis; an debilitating autoimmune disease where my immune system "attacks" my joints, tissues, skin and organs. Having experienced chronic pain, disability, stress, depression, and relentless inflammation for years, I understand first hand what people experience when their health is deteriorated, and quality of life is severely impacted.
In 2015, my health spiraled deeper. Despite years of modern healthcare interventions, not only wast my mobility and social life impacted, it created additional frustration, confusion and fear which drove me to leave my corporate career of 20 years.
At the time, my future seemed perceivably bleak.
Determined, and having more questions than answers, I was motivated and unrelenting to understand what was driving my health adversities. I needed to understand why continued to decline.
Looking beyond traditional western medicine, I began employing a broad range of
holistic approaches to address root cause drivers of illness and disease. This shift in thinking and action to address drivers of disease, resulted in dramatic improvement to my health!
Fueled by my new lease on life, I became certified as a nutrition and lifestyle coach. I knew if my own health could be improved through stress management, mindset nutrition, environment and lifestyle improvements, other’s could improve their health and quality of life too!!
Today, my passion is to inspire and help others not only feel alive, but to empower them to start LIVING!
