“Life has given me the perfect environment to learn how to heal myself, drive me to keep learning, and realize that all healing is individual, sacred, and meaningful.”
My journey to health has led me down paths that have inspired me and fueled my passion to help others regain the balance of health in their life. I am not alone when I speak of overcoming tremendous personal health issues and turning towards a practice of healing. The work becomes the life and my life is truly better for it.
At 28 years old I was a mom of two kids, 8 and 5 years old. I had 30+ piano students and a sewing business that employed 5 other people part-time. Needless to say, I was very busy used to it. It seemed to be the pace I kept and didn’t really know why.I started to experience EXTREME fatigue that gradually got much worse among many other symptoms, including muscle weakness, sporadic shaking, swallowing difficulties, severe digestive issues, nerve numbness, chronic pain, ulcers, etc… The bottom line was I was really sick and I could no longer ignore my symptoms. My gait changed, and I needed a cane to walk with balance periodically. I would have bouts of some improvement and then some weeks of complete regression for which time I was bed/couch ridden and could barely get up to brush my teeth or go to the bathroom. My heart would race and my body perspired at the slightest use of any energy.
I began to consume blog posts, books, and YouTube content on healthy eating, recovery from autoimmune disease, MS, chronic fatigue, leaky gut, etc. I did the GAPS diet for a whole year with little to no improvement. I had lots of doctor visits and was told by a neurologist I likely had MS and needed to get further testing.
I began to lose my sense of self, felt very depressed, and wondered what life would look like if the doctors were right. Would I be in a wheelchair sooner than later? I remember making a very distinct decision in my darkest moment. NO!!!! I would not be the statistics! This will NOT be my life. For better or worse I was and am stubborn like that and refused to accept the MS verdict, which was as close as I got to a real diagnosis for all my trouble.
I was always interested in the more holistic route anyway, and since modern medicine had next to no promise in helping me resolve or heal (their words), I would venture into a world that I would discover to be my path back to wellness. I began to see iridologists who would read my eyes and tell me about my organs and nutrient deficiencies, acupuncturists who would tell me my chi was low and how certain emotions were blocking my energy flow, foot zoners that would hit points on my feet that triggered a healing response in my body… I could feel the road to recovery was coming. Slowly but surely, I began to see my health improve. My energy started to come back and I knew I was on the right path.
I was learning how to listen to my body and appreciate where my energy was, respect it, and live for the present moment. If I overspent my energy, I simply borrowed it from the next day, or worse, triggered a flair-up that might last for weeks or months. I was no longer the person I was before. I learned to lean on my inner guidance and found the wisdom to heal was innate and not something I needed to find. It was a transformation that opened many doors for me and helped me in numerous ways become the person I am now.
Twelve years later, I am healthier now than I have ever been and can do physical activities that would have fatigued me as a child. I find joy in helping others and feel passionate about finding solutions in food, lifestyle, and emotional release work to enable the body’s miraculous healing ability. Our bodies are truly amazing!
How do I feel now? I am 40 years old, a student of something (I promise), my body, mind, and spirit continue to teach me and when I am awake to my needs and respect this journey I feel unstoppable.
I have some incredible tools that help me stay healthy, many of which I share in my courses and coaching programs.

I believe healing is possible and we are all worthy of living our best life!
