Who Am I?

I’m a nutritional pioneer.  I’m doing things that haven’t been done before and my clients are experiencing brilliant results.

One of my FAV things to do is work with people (and organizations) like you to translate what your body and your brain are telling you. Then, empower YOU so that you feel fantastic and look frickin’ amazing.

Things that make my soul happy?

BIG snowflakes, unscheduled days, handwritten notes, stepping outside after a rainstorm…

I’ve been through my own sh*t:

  • Food fixation, cravings, scattered focus, wonky sleep patterns…
  • Feeling fat, insecure, depressed
  • Unaware that I was self-medicating with wheat, sugar, fatty foods, caffeine
  • I’ve devoured a library FULL of books on energy, sleep, weight loss, being balanced, personal & professional transformation…
  • ‘do this’ and ‘stop doing that’.
  • $100,000 + spent on searching for ‘the answer’ through certification programs, Wellness Experts, Doctors, lab tests and so on…
  • I’ve been fed up. Frustrated. Resigned. Is this as good as it gets?
  • I’m not getting the support I NEED. And I feel – like – crap.

My turning point

I’m at the grocery store. ‘Somehow’ I’ve ended up standing in the ice cream aisle. I look at the kale in my cart. Then at the ice cream case. I reach in and grab the ‘Salted Caramel’ ice cream. And I know the truth. I’m going to go home, put the kale in the refrigerator. And then eat – the – ice cream.

I’m clear. I KNOW what to eat. And yet…

Somehow, I always seem to return to that damn pint of ice cream, the bag of potato chips or that container of almond toffee.

What the h*ll is going on?

And then it happens. Decades of personal and professional training, education, and experience coalesce. And I get it. I’ve been missing a CRUCIAL piece.

It’s all in my head! My flippin’ brain is depleted. And it’s doing EVERYTHING it can to get what – it – needs.

Even if that ‘thing’ is sugar, fat, caffeine, chocolate, sex, spending money… These things, are JUST a temporary fix.

And so… I begin a NEW course of action. I start feeding my brain the TARGETED and SPECIFIC nutrients that it has been asking for…

Within 24 hours…

My energy has increased and my mood has lifted.

 

Within 72 hours…

I’m thinking more clearly, my mind is focused.

I’m at ease and feeling relaxed. In fact, I notice I’m breathing more fully.

 

Within a week…

I’m waking up with ease.

And my ‘need’ for my daily sugar and fat fix is gone.

 

Within 3 months…

I’m in awe. Everything I experienced within the 1st week – is STILL happening.

Honestly, I feel like myself again.

Energized. Upbeat. My mind is clear. I am free of reactive food choices. Sleeping normally. I even notice I’m laughing more.

THIS – is – profound.

Why am I so fired up?

Flat out, because it works.

And I want you to have access to the coaching and support that I wish I had gotten along the way.

You likely have many if not most of the right ‘pieces’ (foods, supplements…), however you aren’t sure how to combine these pieces to produce a certain result.

You’re seeking support and direction around how to put the pieces in place, how to ADD IN the pieces that are missing, and then be supported as you create a natural momentum.

WHAT exactly do I do?

I’m a Functional Nutritionist specializing in Neurochemical Nutrition.

So where a traditional nutritionist might focus primarily on what you are eating, my work begins a layer below this by supporting and maintaining optimal brain chemistry. (Wanna learn more? Click here)

My job is to work with you to determine what is going on with your body and your brain, and then show you how to translate this into results in real time.

Most of what I do is based on neurochemical and neuronal activity and patterning. From supplements to coaching techniques… I know this might sound all ‘science-y’, but don’t worry, you don’t need to KNOW all of this. THAT’s where I come in.
