About Me

I am a wife and mom of 2. I am a Registered Dental Hygienist, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and an autoimmune warrior. My health journey began many years ago with unexplainable issues like intolerance to heat, a low platelet count, and numbness in my feet. Five years ago, things really ramped up and I developed extensive fatigue, brain fog, headaches, joint pain and a butterfly rash. Because of my health care background, I knew a butterfly rash could be a sign of Lupus. I feared a possible Lupus diagnosis and also feared the standard harsh drug therapy that goes along with it. 

After my rheumatologist confirmed that my immune system was abnormal, and had early signs of Lupus, I was motivated to seek out a natural way to deal with my symptoms and feel better. 

I reshaped my eating habits; taking in healing nutrient dense foods and leaving behind inflammatory processed foods, refined sugars and oils. I avoided dairy and grains because of food sensitivities. I also focused on getting better quality sleep and transitioned to a gentler exercising routine.

Because of my own successes with the healing foods, I wanted to help others on their path to health. This desire led me to the Nutritional Therapy Association and its Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner program. 

As I started my studies in the FNTP program, my daughter Alyah, began her own journey dealing with health issues. After a bout with the flu, she just couldn’t bounce back. She suffered from fatigue, excessive weight loss, and extreme abdominal pain every time she ate.  

Nutritional therapy has made the difference in our health journey.  To have an autoimmune condition has been challenging and difficult for me to deal with, but to have my daughter have to walk a similar path has been unbearable! She has suffered greatly  physically and emotionally because of her condition. God has guided me on my own path of healing and he has guided me as I have cared for my daughter.

I know the fear, pain and frustration of having a chronic health condition. I also know those emotions caring for a loved one who is struggling with one. I am here to encourage and give assurance that hope and healing can be found through nutritional therapy!  Your story matters and I am here to help you on your health journey!
