As a Nutritional Consultant, Certified Micronutrient Specialist, and 21-Day Sugar Detox Coach, I’m passionate about nutrition and how it impacts every aspect of our lives.
My enthusiasm for good health through great food led me to Bauman College where I received my education. I consider it a privilege and great joy to share my knowledge about nutrition with other people.
I’m a wife and mom of three beautiful, grown children. My desire to learn about wellness took seed when one of my children was diagnosed with ADHD at age 2 ½. The doctor suggested medication but also mentioned a diet called The Feingold Diet, which is an elimination diet that removes foods containing harmful additives. For several years, we followed the diet’s guidelines and took extra caution to read labels.
But, life happens and we can get very busy. Going back to work full-time was a challenge and soon I found myself buying packaged foods for my family—sugary cereals, bagels, frozen pizza, and anything else that was quick and easy. Sound familiar? It’s called the Standard American Diet (SAD).
Eating the SAD brought some undesirable additions to our lives. We were sick. A lot. My husband began getting migraines. We were tired, cranky, and noticing weight and hormonal changes. But I never related any of this to our diet.
As an avid runner, I grew curious to know if improving my diet would enhance my running. I decided to make a few changes and began only eating whole foods. About three weeks into this new diet, I noticed I could think clearer, I wasn’t cranky, I felt happier, and I was sleeping better. As I began researching, I realized that the way we were eating was causing so much harm to my family and it would only continue unless changes were made for everyone.
Fast forward to the present and now, as a Nutrition Professional, I firmly believe in the importance of eating whole foods, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and cultivating a positive attitude. I have experienced the benefits these changes offer and it’s my goal to help others realize these same benefits as they journey to wellness.
