After 25 years as a retail pharmacist, I grew weary of talking to customers about their medications and seeing how were treating symptoms and not really getting to the “why” someone is experiencing these symptoms. I’m not a fan of the practice of a “pill for every ill” I had my own health challenges early on. I had developed hives that persisted for 7 long years, during that time I saw multiple doctors and specialists no one was able to give me an answer or a resolution. What I did get was a lot of “we may never know” responses and a slew of medications to calm the hives that never left. Needless to say, I was frustrated, depressed, I felt dismissed, unheard, and worst of all…hopeless. I was scared that this would be my new normal. Thankfully, I found a functional medicine practitioner who was able to help me get to the root of the why I was getting the hives and after 7 years, I was free. Learning how my body works and taking action to reclaim my health was life changing, once I saw an opportunity to become a practitioner myself I jumped at it and enrolled at the School for Applied Functional Medicine and I received my Level 1 Functional Medicine Health Coach Certification and am currently completing my Level 2.
I work with motivated professionals struggling to manage their dis-ease and to reclaim their health so they can make their impact on the world without feeling held back by their bodies. My clients have struggled with celiac disease, hashimoto’s, crohn’s, ulcerative colitis, and IBS and they each say the same thing…”I tried on my own for so long, I thought i was doing everything right but I wasn’t getting any better.” There is nothing more frustrating and anxiety provoking than trying to figure it out on your own and not getting results. We each have our own unique needs and you need a practitioner that understands how to put it all together so that you can go from just being to living.
With my program, you will get support tailored to your unique body’s need as well as the tools and guidance to help navigate through any challenges that may hold you back from achieving your goals.
You won't be alone in this process!
