and believe food connects you to yourself and the world around you.

why do i start with the gut?

because it reaches every single part of health

The quickest path to imbalances in your body is not fully digesting or absorbing food.

Since this path looks different for everybody, I've made it my mission to educate and empower as many clients as possible to support the digestive system, find an exercise routine they love, lean into rest when necessary, and maneuver from a state of fight or flight to rest and digest easier.

The result: less bloat, more predictable digestion, less pain, more energy, easier periods, fewer headaches, clear skin, less brain fog and so much more...

My Story

At 37 years old, I was frustrated and mysteriously sick. I recorded my symptoms, sat in medical offices, explained, and cried. My doctors couldn’t fix me. A dietitian didn’t understand me. And my family and friends were overwhelmed by me.

With no answers, I went against everything I’d known about medicine and met with a holistic practitioner. Functional testing showed I wasn't absorbing nutrients, and an elimination diet pointed to gluten, which was damaging my gut and affecting my immune system.

Changing my diet changed the course of my entire life. I was energetic, clear headed, and happy for the first time. I became fascinated by my recovery and discovery, longing to understand “why” and “how” I went from so broken to feeling like a whole person. 

My Story

Food was a huge part of the puzzle for my health, but as I dove into work with my clients, I learned it's never "just one thing. " 

I became curious about stress and it's role in digestive health, and my focus turned to the brain, gut, and immune connection - where I now lay the foundations for my clients. The results are exponential.

My nutritional therapy practice has taken me full circle. Having a history of childhood trauma and high stress, I'm an empathetic ear to anyone who's been suffering silently. 

Sometimes the root cause is hidden, and food isn't enough. I'm here to teach you how to listen to your body, build solid foundations to rely on, and transform your health from the inside out.

Fun Facts

I hiked my first "mountain" at 42 years old - Gorham Mountain at Acadia National Park. It smelled like pine and salt water, and that was the moment I fell in love with the outdoors.
Every Thanksgiving we watch Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. Then I crack a Christmas novel and don't stop reading them until New Years.
My podcast list is full of daily news, female entrepreneurs, and binge-worthy crime 'casts - but the best podcast of all time is Smartless and if you're not listening, go right now. Go!
The true loves of my life are my husband, two kids, and my dogs Joe and Minnie. Sometimes I look around and think, how did I get so lucky to find the most handsome and loyal rescue dog ever (Joe.)
