About Me

In the Beginning…

Growing up in Canada all meals were home-cooked and eating out as a family was a rare but special treat. Sounds like a relatively healthy beginning until you take a deeper look into the foods that were being consumed. The day started with pop tarts and ended with a big bowl of ice cream, talk about a sugar rush. Suffering from all of the processed foods it wasn’t until years later that I was diagnosed with allergies to wheat, eggs, and dairy to name a few. The discovery was life changing and set forth a journey of eating wholesome foods that provided natural weight management as well as pure enjoyment of eating once again.

My experiences…

Beyond the diagnosis for food allergies, there were also struggles with weight-loss. How was it possible that I was an eating well and maintaining an active lifestyle yet unable to shed any pounds? The statement “you are what you eat” is definitely true but misses one key element, our primary food – meaning our relationships and careers. I may have been taking care of myself in terms of nourishment but I wasn’t taking care of myself as a whole!

The journey begins…

I found the Institute of Integrative Nutrition by attending a cooking class hosted by a recent graduate. Throughout the whole experience I was provided with all sorts of healthy tips and tricks, which I loved and incorporated into my lifestyle. Paying attention to the signals our body gives us has helped me live my optimal life and inspired me to help others find and live their’s as well. Today, I counsel men and women on finding the right balance in their life by helping reach their goals through healing foods.

Eat healthy food, live an energetic life and laugh along the way. I look forward to hearing your story and helping you on your journey.
