Beginning my education and career in a very conventional-based system, I am passionate about shifting outdated paradigms to more progressive, evidence-based nutritional guidelines - especially as it pertains to the quality of food supply and food sensitivities. Inspired by my own diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis and symptom management with diet and lifestyle, I focus my work on fully educating clients of the critical role nutrition plays in healing, while customizing strategies to fit within their specific lifestyle to achieve long-term success.
