I am a wife to an amazing neuropsychologist and the best partner anyone could ask for, Mike. I am also the mom of 2 wonderful adults, Emily 26 and Josh 22. I am a lover of essential oils, herbs, plant based personal care products and natural cleaning products. My wellness journey began after several years of painful, undiagnosable symptoms. It took countless Dr's appointments, numerous procedures, multiple alternative therapies and a handful of prescription drugs, before I realized that I was just making things worse. I was prescribed medication after medication that was masking the real problems, all while adding side effects causing even more trouble. I was literally at my wits end and I knew that something had to change. I decided that change needed to begin at home and I made brave steps toward eliminating all conventional medications, processed food, toxic household cleaners and personal care products, feeling strongly that it was the accumulation of toxins that were making me sick. This was not something that happened overnight. It literally took years to change my habits of reaching for the medicine cabinet when I felt a headache coming on or finding new recipes to replace our packaged food addiction. During this time, I continued to research and educate myself and I truly believed that severe inflammation was causing my physical and emotional symptoms. Over the course of a few years, my symptoms gradually faded and I began to feel balanced, energized and finally pain free. My weight returned to a healthy number and I had a new excitement for life. I continued my education and became a Certified Integrative Health Practitioner and now look forward to helping you and your family live your best lives.
Being a good Mom and Wife was my
primary goal for so many years. Once my kids were headed off to college,
I found myself yearning for something more and I began a career as a private nanny. I wanted to bless young Mom's with
safe, healthy childcare while they were away from their children. I remembered what it was like to have to leave my babies and if I could ease that burden, then I was doing something right. During
that time, I found my passion working with families to incorporate whole
nutrition, exercise, healthy rest, stress and toxin-free living as well as a
positive mindset to create a healthy, balanced lifestyle for the entire family.
I am passionate about education, personal growth and research and am confident that we can work together to get to the root cause of any symptom in a natural, safe, and effective way.
