I wanted it all - health, happiness, and a successful career.
But something was always holding me back. Every time I wanted to be social, go on a date, travel, or just live life... I always feared my digestive issues would get in the way. I continued to ignore the pain and discomfort until it was too late. My digestive system started shutting down - an internal scream for help.
It was time to listen to my body.
I’ve always viewed myself as someone, who I thought was healthy - especially when living a crazy-busy corporate lifestyle. Being “always on” and working seven days a week, my brain never shut off. I was in a constant state of dis-stress or dis-ease. I was in fight or flight mode and never stopped to put my health needs first. I thought going to the gym in the morning, then working 15 hours a day was healthy, because everyone I knew was doing it. I thought being consumed with work led me to believe I was important. I’d skip meals and snacks, sometimes I would go a whole day without eating or hardly drinking any water, being fueled only with coffee or energy drinks. When I would eat (as I usually skipped breakfast), I would rush through the process of eating, never taking the time to taste my food and actually enjoy what I was eating. While eating, I would look at my phone, check work emails on my laptop, or eat in the car on my way to a meeting. If I could eat on the run, I would, gulping everything down as fast as I could because I didn’t have time. I couldn’t digest my world. Being caught in a constant state of hurry, I consumed massive amounts of liquids or foods that made me sluggish instead of productive.
My external reality was mirroring my inner reality -
my inability to digest and slow down.
Days would pass when I wouldn’t produce a bowel movement, sometimes even weeks. So I relied on over-the-counter laxatives or colon prep kits to ensure that I would go to the bathroom. Until one day, I found myself almost paralyzed in my bed. I couldn’t move. It was at that life changing movement where I literally could not get out of bed that I decided I needed to listen to my body. I ignored the warning signs for far too long and now I was paying the consequences. Before my 30th birthday, my body already started shutting down on me.
It often takes a life changing and dramatic event that you can no longer ignore to make real lasting changes to your health. After 15 years of struggling with digestive issues and IBS, I began to fully explore the journey of me, vowing to make a commitment to find balance and return to optimal health. I only had two choices - return to what I know - ignoring my digestive pain and discomfort until I ended up in the hospital - or I could go with my gut, learn the secrets of nourishing my body through a holistic approach, and start building a new relationship with my body.

Why work with me?
As your nutritionist, I figure out where you might have digestive issues or food sensitivities that may be contributing to your weight gain, constipation and fatigue. I also provide banish-the-bloat meal recommendations and recipes suitable to your unique body and lifestyle. I’ll also help you poop like a pro, so you’ll become leaner, more energized, and healthy.
As a former marketing manager, with severe digestive issues (and an addiction to laxatives to cure my constipation), I had zero energy and very poor eating habits. I know what it’s like trying to juggle deadlines, demanding bosses, and trying to be healthy, but then skipping meals and gorging on chips at night. I know how and what it takes to keep things on track and restore your digestive system while getting the energy you need. WHY? Because I am highly invested in your health too! Your gut can make you feel like your body is fighting against you, day in and day out. Let’s work together to change that.
Working with me, you get all of this in
one program and one mentor.
Quick fixes for our unhappy bellies and digestive dysfunction are never sustainable and exhausting to keep up with.
Discover how to listen to your body and banish the bloat for good.
Isn't it about time you reconnected with that gut instinct?
