Here's a bit about me and what led me to this work.
In my high school years, I developed symptoms of hormone dysregulation, autoimmunity, and burnout through intense seasons of stress. This led me on the path to my healing journey. As I'm sure many can relate, the few times I went to see the doctor, I was given nothing but a symptom-based treatment plan and nothing to address WHY I was experiencing symptoms in the first place. I decided to pursue a career in medicine and went to nursing school. I soaked up my biology, biochemistry, anatomy, and physiology courses, trying to fit the pieces together of how our bodies work. I also had a deep affinity for natural health, which grew as I started to dig into the research and learn about the root causes of chronic disease. But as I sought answers in the world of health and wellness, I found it confusing. At times I swung between the extremes of modern-day diet culture as I navigated the conflicting messages presented to me. Over time and through years of study and practice, I learned how to work with my body and create sustainable, simple practices that support my health while enjoying life's journey and not obsessing over it.
Throughout my nursing career over the past seven years, I've had the privilege of listening to the health stories of many women. While each person is unique, I kept noticing a theme. Women are hungry for answers to their health, yet many remain in a cycle of burnout and frustrating symptoms. Hearing these stories from friends, acquaintances, and patients fueled my desire to support women holistically. I am now on a mission to help as many women as I can to understand their bodies and be empowered to pursue wellbeing in a way that is truly nourishing.
I do not take this responsibility lightly. I have poured years of training and invested thousands of dollars into my own growth so that I can provide a quality, evidence-based coaching experience for my clients:
I am a Registered Nurse and my professional background includes over seven years of nursing experience in women’s health areas.
I am certified by the American Holistic Nurses Credentialing Corporation as a Board Certified Nurse Coach. I have dozens of hours of coaching experience and have worked with a variety of clients (see testimonials here).
I am a graduate of the Women’s Functional & Integrative Medicine Professional Training Program, by Dr. Aviva Romm.
I am currently in training to become a FAMM Certified Practitioner through Lisa Hendrickson's Fertility Awareness Mastery Mentorship. This allows me to focus my work around my clients' menstrual cycles. Using the sympto-thermal method, I teach them how to accurately chart and interpret their cycles for use as natural birth control, fertility guidance, and overall health.
I am continually learning about how to support our bodies naturally and holistically. The blog portion of my website is dedicated to sharing my favorite resources.
