I love what I do! It’s been a journey getting to this place of vibrant health. We all have our journeys don’t we?
I grew up in the great city of New Orleans. My family ate the standard American diet (SAD) – lots of processed and microwaved food – and since high school maintaining a healthy weight has been a struggle.
In 2008, at 40 years old, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. I was 40+ pounds overweight and had absolutely no energy…..NONE…..ZIP! Connecting with my husband and children and keeping up with my “mommy duties” was exhausting.
The first two docs I saw only wanted to give me sleeping pills, an antidepressant, muscle relaxers, and pain meds. Nothing about that felt right to me. There was no way I was going to live the rest of my life like that!
A year later, I found a wonderful doctor who got to the root of my medical issues and empowered me to take control of my life through proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle.
Fast forward a few years (with lots of research and trial and error to find what worked for MY body) and I feel AMAZING!
In 2014 I went to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I studied over 100 dietary theories and learned from the best and brightest in nutrition and wellness. There I learned that what truly feeds us is not necessarily just the food eat.
I am now an AADP & Integrative Nutrition Certified Health Coach with a goal to empower women all the over world to take control of their health and their lives. I invite you to join me on this adventure – to have rockin’ energy, sleep like a baby through the night, fully engage with all life has to offer and feel sexy in your jeans once again!!
