About Me

As a functional medicine practitioner, I put the power back in your hands.

My training is from both many years of on going education and a very diverse career; including being a registered nurse focusing on cardiac and critical care nursing, program development for disease states not limited to Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hepatitis, Hypertension, Fibromyalgia, Cardiovascular Disease and Diabetes.  I also created hospital wide one and two day leadership programs for management. I received my health coaching training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I studied a variety of dietary theories and practical lifestyle coaching methods. With my knowledge and experience and your symptoms and health goals, we co-create a completely personalized actions plan based on your goals to move you toward your ideal vision of thriving optimal health within your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and resources. 

I bring to my clients an extensive background in health care including but not limited to: functional medicine practitioner, registered nurse with cardiac and critical care, emergency, hospice, leadership and pharmaceutical program development and an MBA. To keep from getting to serious about all this health and wellness I became a certified Laugh Leader from the World Laughter Tour.  

I clearly understand bio-individuality; the diet that works for me won't necessarily be what you need to thrive and live at your optimal potential. I am here to help you discover and learn what will support you to be the best version of you that's possible and it's way more than you ever imagined.

My education has equipped me with extensive, cutting-edge knowledge in functional medicine, holistic functional nutrition, health coaching, leadership, meditation, emotional freedom release using the breath and most important is prevention. Drawing on my expertise, I work with clients like you over 40 in leadership positions to help them make lifestyle changes and choose health-promoting ways that produce real and lasting results. You will develop a deeper understanding of food and lifestyle choices that work best for you, improving your energy, weight, self-confidence, decision making, balance, health, and happiness.  Together we create a plan so that your weight, energy, self-confidence and decision making are in alignment with you personal and professional goals.

Each session will leave you feeling inspired and motivated. We will talk about things beyond food, seeking to bring balance to important elements of your life such as love and relationship as well as career and money. I will personally and carefully guide you to make simple, small changes that transform your life.  You will love seeing the ripple effect for those around you as you transform so will others.
