Biography and favorites


I was a child that did not feel heard. I remember both the emotional and physical pain of being an outsider, with no help, no tools, no way to change my circumstances. I moved through life with an outer shell of competence, learning the words to say and when to smile, but inside all was chaos. After my son was grown, I discovered nutrition and its link to brain chemistry, learning about the symptoms attributed to those on the autism spectrum. I then saw patterns in me & my family of origin – SPD, OCD, anxiety, depression, ADD, self injurious behavior, social awkwardness, being bullied and information processing difficulties. Then, I experienced how food choices removed the internal static I thought I would just have live with. I learned about compounds in foods that wreaked havoc with my inner world – compounds you would never think were lurking in nutritious food! I was able to customize my diet and change how I interfaced with my world. When I retired, I returned to school and opened my clinic, showing others how to resolve these issues, starting with those who hurt the most and are dependent on those who have gone before to show the way.


I truly believe that each child deserves the chance to thrive in his or her own way – a chance I never had. BioIndividual nutrition gives them a running start to reach their potential. By eliminating the internal static caused by toxins, food sensitivities and more important, by increasing the necessary building blocks for their bodies and brains, the next generation will get their chance. Let’s be clear – food doesn’t cure autism and food doesn’t heal a struggling body. It’s the body that returns to its best function possible when given the best building blocks possible. And that’s how food helps.
