Throughout my teens and early twenties, I was plagued with crippling anxiety, gut problems, fatigue, and a wide array of mystery symptoms. Doctors, specialists, and psychiatrists were dumbfounded, experimenting with medication after medication. I was suffering through life instead of living it. As if those years aren't difficult enough, am I right?
Super-duper long story short, I discovered through self-investigation the cause of my issues and solved them within days. How? I turned my analytical detective brain towards solving my problem. I read any information I could get my hands on relating to disorders of the body. During my personal research, I discovered that all I had to do was change my diet and lifestyle!
Later in life, I realized my passion was helping and empowering people. I wanted to prevent anyone from experiencing what I experienced. I wanted to go back in time and prevent my father from suffering a heart attack at 47. And I wanted to do this for as many people as I could.
So I quit my job and went back to school for nutrition, which was insane because I HATED school in my youth. I earned a Masters in Human Nutrition and am now a Registered and Licensed Dietitian.
Today, my true passion is helping people feel happier and healthier by empowering them to think and care for themselves. I hope to inspire understanding regarding the relationship between food, lifestyle, behaviors, and our mind-boggling, amazingly-designed bodies.
