My story in a nutshell…
Eleven years ago I was chronically sick, feeling wired and tired, and experiencing constant overwhelm with both work, and going to graduate school to become a practitioner. I never seemed to have enough energy to get through the day. I was juggling too many responsibilities and suffering some major consequences. One day I looked up and I didn’t feel like myself anymore; I didn’t recognize the tired stranger in the mirror.
Like many women I know, I was being held captive by hormone crazy and overwhelm. I come from a lineage of hormone imbalance and grew up watching my mom suffer mood swings, lack of energy and sleepless nights. During my mid-twenties, I was chronically tired, 35 pounds overweight, cranky and oftentimes feeling super un-sexy. I felt like I lost control of my body while doing all the things I thought were “right” for me. I was surviving on caffeine to get through each day.
I realized that I needed to change my lifestyle if I wanted to feel like my old self again. I started with simple changes; I began eating more plants and cooking at home. Green leafy vegetables became a staple in my diet. Green smoothies became a simple daily habit that provided the necessary energy to start my day without caffeine. I then focused on yoga, dance and fun exercises that I enjoyed. My stress decreased and my energy levels increased, my weight started to melt off and I began feeling like myself. Over time I explored more healthy habits: positive journaling, hiking on nice days, and using essentials oils and whole food supplements to help keep me and my family healthy.
I reclaimed my life and my body! On my journey, I learned that 80% of what we do on a daily basis dictates the life that we live later. I want that life to be rich, healthy and filled with amazing experiences. In my 10 years educating on healthy lifestyle habits I have helped thousands of women: lose weight, sleep better, lower cortisol levels and reclaim their energy. I have seen women transform and get back the body that they have longed for.
I’m here to help you live a beautiful, healthy and abundant life.
To date, I’ve written 5 books, my most recent being about one of my favorite super foods, Matcha Tea. Maybe one of my books will be the perfect fit for YOU! [Let’s take a book tour…]

I am an avid lover of essential oils. I found them to be incredibly effective in helping with everyday mood boosting, restful sleep, digestive support and cleansing to name a few. Read about out how essential oils were the missing link for me to enhancing my well-being!
