I am a big believer that you can manifest the most beautiful life but not just "dreaming" about it - or "wishing" it. Dreaming is one important aspect but creating the intention, carving out the space + getting clear on the actions needed to take is where the shifts start to happen.
From this work, and my own health journey, I am now on a mission to help people avoid chronic illness by thriving in a state of true wellness that supports longevity.
I suffered with IBS, adult acne, headaches, blood sugar imbalances, PMS and fatigue in my 20’s + 30’s and was frustrated by my own medical care with my providers telling me that all my labs were normal. I started to investigate and get very curious about my own body and other ways to heal myself. Through incorporating holistic practices and a functional medicine approach I was able to get to my own root causes of imbalances and bring my body into a state of thriving health.
Creating wellness + well-being in your life is not linear, it is a journey. It is a lifelong commitment to adopting a lifestyle that supports wellness. It is also not just about the body as a physical being but also about the emotional and spiritual self and the relationship we have with ourselves. Over the past 25 years I have not only done the work on my physical body but have continued to grow, to be curious, to ask the deep questions. One aspect of what I love to teach is Intuitive Body Awareness - something that many of us are far removed from. When we start to listen to our bodies and tap into how we FEEL amazing things happen and habits start to shift.
Prior to starting my virtual functional medicine practice I was a Hospitalist and Internal Medicine Specialist working with a very sick population.
