It was 2am and I was staring up at the ER lights in excruciating pain. My now-husband was looking down at me on the bed and I could see the worry on his face — we both thought I was going to die.

My doctors ran a bunch of tests — we looked at my appendix, blood work, you name it — everything came back normal. I told the doctor I had just gotten my period so he concluded it was just a painful period and to take some Midol.

3 years prior to this, I stopped taking birth control because my gut told me the chronic fatigue, weight gain, bloating, and anxiety I started experiencing was due to that (despite all of my doctors telling me to stay on it). By this point, I had been diagnosed with hypothyroidism (eventually Hashimoto’s), PCOS and IBS. The only solution I was offered was to go on thyroid and anxiety meds, “eat less and exercise more” (despite my eating disorder and over-exercising history) and to manage my stress - whatever the heck that meant?

After going off of birth control, I lost my period entirely for 3 whole years. At first, I was excited I no longer had to deal with what I once believed was the curse of being a woman but I had this intuitive feeling that something wasn’t right. And one day it came back with a vengeance — this was the day I was rushed to the ER not knowing what was going on in my body. 

This was my breaking point — I’d been told “everything is normal” for years or “just take this for that”, but I knew something bigger was brewing inside. I was sick and tired of being on the merry-go-round of doctors, specialists and nutritionists with no avail. I couldn’t keep doing this.



I was doing EVERYTHING but all I was left with was an average salary, 4 health conditions, and no real reward at the end of the tunnel. I thought, “there’s gotta be more to life than this.”

I was working as a Marketing Director for two wellness clubs and was always the person who was good at anything so I did whatever was asked of me. I also had a background in personal training and teaching group fitness classes, so if an instructor didn't show up, I was the one leading that class (in addition to all the marketing work I still had to get done that day).  

I was also the girl who graduated high school and college a year early — I just wanted to grow up, make a name for myself and of course make that money — but all this ambition and striving ultimately ended in burn out.

I was doing EVERYTHING but all I was left with was an average salary, 4 health conditions, and no real reward at the end of the tunnel. I thought, “there’s gotta be more to life than this.”

In the back of my mind, I had always wanted to start my own business but never knew when it was the right time to do so. After my last bout of extreme burnout, that was my last straw.



I quit my corporate career and went off on my own as an integrative medicine health coach and personal trainer thinking all my problems would go away. Unfortunately, they ALL came with me. I brought my lack of boundaries, overworking tendencies, and became my own toxic boss.

Working for myself was no different than working “for the man.” It was a new career but the same exact story.

What I realized is that overworking myself was actually my addiction to not feeling. When I went through a breakup, I’d pour myself into my work. When I was going through my eating disorder, I’d just work harder. If I had a trauma to heal, I’d turn to work instead. Work was my way of “getting through” things — but when I really looked at what I was doing, it was only contributing to me getting sicker. 

What I realized is that NONE of my health conditions came out of the blue — all the choices, the overworking, the constantly saying “yes” to things led me to this point, both physically and emotionally. Not to mention the emotional baggage that wasn’t even mine and passed down through generations.



By the third time I landed myself in the ER I realized I couldn’t keep doing this.

Coincidentally, most all of the clients I worked with in my own coaching business were just like me — they were doing everything “right” but were still not getting better. I became obsessed with figuring out WHY.  

What I realized is that reviving your health is about so much more than just changing your diet or cursing out your hormones. 

Although I was a Duke Integrative Medicine Health Coach and Functional Medicine Practitioner at the time, I knew there was a bigger piece of the puzzle I hadn’t yet found. Despite Functional Medicine’s ability to address health in a more natural way, it still treated symptoms the same — take this supplement for that symptom (just like how medication is prescribed). 

That’s when I became a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P) and Emotion Code Practitioner, so I could finally get into the deeper work to actually address the whole person — physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually — not just physically.

I could now run functional lab tests as an FDN-P to identify the healing opportunities deep within the body, as well as their sleep patterns, circadian rhythm, stress levels, and more. As an Emotion Code Practitioner, I could help decode negative emotional energies and pinpoint the exact emotion and experience that created a symptom or condition in the body. The energy body is a blueprint for our physical body. This helps our bodies know how to heal, regain balance and regenerate.

What I’ve learned from a decade of experience is that the root causes are almost always far removed from the conditions themselves. My mission is to help you reinterpret your body’s signals and hormone fluctuations to connect the dots so that you have your own unique natural blueprint to guide your hormones, and female biology. 

I now give my clients the tools to help them interpret their body’s messages and tap into their body's innate wisdom.

What I’ll leave you with is this:


💫 It's time to get your power back.

💫 It’s time to feel at home in your body.

💫 It’s time to feel back in sync with the power of your hormones and in the driver seat of your female biology.
