About me

I am a Holistic Health Practitioner that lives in California, and has clients all over the world.

I earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree at UC Santa Cruz.  I started my Post Graduate work in Psychology  at Pepperdine University, and was swept into the world of Telecommunications before finishing my Master's Degree.  After 13 years of working as a sales professional in Telecom I realized that my true passions, health and wellness, needed to be explored.  Working, traveling and entertaining in the corporate world had left me just a shadow of the human being I was before. 

I had all the signs of Adrenal Fatigue; high levels of fatigue each day, inability to handle stress, a weakened immune system, "brain fog", and my joints sounded like they were made of cellophane wrap, crackling every time I moved.  I was working way too many hours, my stress levels were high, I was not taking the time to nourish my body with healthy food, nor was I nourishing my spirit.  There was no balance in my life.

I can tell you I cried at my "allopathic medicine" doctor's office when she told me that eating healthier would not make me feel better, would not improve my hormone levels, or make any significant positive changes on my extensive blood tests.  Are you kidding me????  What I eat doesn't count??  Little did I know that the medical establishment was so far removed from reality that this could come out of the mouth of a doctor.

I decided to educate myself and go back to school for nutrition and many other modalities targeted to heal my own body.  After many years of working towards my Functional Nutritionist certificate and Holistic Health Practitioner license, I was a new woman!!! Holistic Health Coaching addresses disease as an imbalance in the physical, emotional, spiritual or environmental components of a person's life. I was taught to look at the CAUSE of the illness rather than alleviating symptoms.  I completely cleaned my diet by only eating ONE INGREDIENT foods (nothing processed), only eating organic, pesticide free foods, and eliminating anything that would be genetically modified (no GMOs!!).  I have completely detoxed my house from every chemical and toxin that could negatively affect my health, basically only clean my house and environment with things I can also eat.  This also includes not putting anything on my body that I cannot eat, as our skin absorbs lotions and skin care products, and if you can't eat it, it doesn't belong on your perfect body.

There is a time and place for western medicine and you may have to take those prescription drugs to manage your health, but when you overhaul your lifestyle, you can feel and look better no matter what your "diagnoses" are.  We can take back our power to educate ourselves on what is going in our bodies, and take action to heal ourselves. My goal in life is to reach as many people out there that feel that they are a prisoner to their health issues.  This is also why I have built an online course with personal coaching to go along with it.
