My passion for nutrition stems from decades of chronic health struggles which prevented me from living the life I wanted. I was plagued with bone-crushing fatigue, constant brain fog, autoimmune thyroid disease, anxiety, depression, bronchial and sinus infections, debilitating menstrual symptoms, PCOS, hypoglycemia, kidney stones, chronic headaches, heavy metal toxicity, and was ultimately told my conditions were incurable and I would never be able to conceive a child. What I discovered instead is that they were all wrong!
My studies in nutrition and functional medicine helped me address the root causes of my symptoms one by one, and I became a new version of myself, free of debilitating disease, capable of conceiving, and able to live life to the fullest.
I customize lifestyle medicine programs for each of my clients in order to address the unique root cause of weight gain, fatigue, thyroid health, digestive health, sleep issues, and peri-menopause symptoms.
I completed my dietetics internship in Endocrinology at Cleveland Clinic of Weston and got my undergraduate degree (B.A.) from Swarthmore College in psychology/pre-medical, and then completed a Bachelors in Science (Dietetics & Nutrition) from Keiser University where I graduated valedictorian.
