Like many of you, I suffered from debilitating stomach pain, bloating and fatigue after giving birth to my first child. Lack of sleep, added stress and hormone imbalances wreaked havoc on my digestion, energy and mood. I was unsatisfied with traditional approaches to help me such as anti-depressants and antacids. I knew those were only band-aids and I was searching for the root cause of my pain, fatigue and discomfort.
This prompted me to earn my Master's degree in Applied Clinical Nutrition from New York Chiropractic College, graduating summa cum laude in 2015. I have since worked extensively with clients on nutrition therapy from weight loss, to digestive issues, inflammation, autoimmunity and more. I currently see clients at my fitness studio space in Kalamazoo, MI as well as with distance coaching via Skype, telehealth conferencing and phone calls.
Prior to my Master's degree, I earned my personal trainer and group fitness certifications through the American Council on Exercise and my massage therapy certification from the Kalamazoo Center for the Healing Arts after graduating with a BA in biology from Kalamazoo College in 2004.
I truly believe that participating in a health, exercise and nutrition program is the best way to enhance one’s quality of life which prompts the question, "Are you just living or are you THRIVING?"
I currently facilitate over 200 personal training and/or nutrition counseling sessions per month. Through nutrition, lifestyle changes and movement, I can help you teach your body how to heal and optimize your health.
The most rewarding aspect of of my career is empowering people to take charge of their health and achieve life changing results. I look forward to working with you!
