I am a Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist
at Optimal Wellness Solutions
. Throughout my life, I have developed a passion for fitness and nutrition and a desire to help others achieve their health and wellness goals.
It is all about education
. Our insurance-
based healthcare system is going bust. We have more stress now than any previous generations. We need to keep healthy and strong to endure what is coming down the pike.
A little history of how I got started in the clinical nutrition world. I was a sick little girl going in and out of doctor's offices for nearly 10 years. They kept telling me my symptoms were in my head. I could have strangled the next doctor to tell me the same thing. When I was finally diagnosed with a blood sugar disorder, hypoglycemia, at age 16, my life changed dramatically. I researched diabetes and understood exercise would help regulate blood insulin levels. I was able to feel healthy and well for 2 decades until the ski accident.
The ski accident broke me in more ways than one. I was in and out of doctors once again. I vowed to myself when I was age 16 that if I got sick again, I would take the bull by the horns and figure it out for myself. Well, I did. It only took me 4 months to figure out the root cause of my symptoms, but it took me several more years to become well.
I put myself in the position of a guinea pig. I tried many therapies and many support systems. I had numerous testing done. Once I got well, I went back to school to study Pre-Med
and Post Graduate Studies
in Functional Endocrinology
, and Neurology
. I am grateful for my journey and my path has led me to help others.
It has been a privilege and honor to teach and educate individuals of all ages on nutrition, fitness, health, and wellness. I look forward to many more years of inspiring clients.
