A love of the natural world, environment, animals, and fitness from an early age lead me down the path to an education in the sciences, which evolved into nutritional science. I attended Ryerson University in Toronto and completed a Bachelor of Applied Science Degree in Food and Nutrition in 2008. Despite initial intentions of becoming a registered dietician, as I approached graduation, I just knew dietetics was not the path for me. What initially felt unfortunate was nothing short of a blessing in disguise.
It was at that time I had discovered the world of natural health and alternative healing and thus, I innately knew I had found my calling. I graduated from The Canadian School of Natural Nutrition (CSNN) in 2009 with a diploma in Holistic Nutrition as Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN). I then began devoting much time, research and effort into improving my own health. I had also discovered Yoga and travel and fell upon a path of wellness-driven discovery that to this day I am so very grateful for. I worked for CSNN and their regulatory organization CAHN-Pro (Canadian Association of Holistic Nutrition Professionals) in the immediate years following my graduation. Life then lead me here to Collingwood where I reside with my family including two young children.
Both my mission and my passion are helping others be well, feel well and achieve optimal health. As a perpetual seeker of information and truth I've realized that I am blessed (or possibly cursed) with the desire for continuous learning and self-development. I’m a lifelong student of health and wellness. Nutrition and the science of the human body has been a life shaping journey.... a path to transforming and continuously improving my own health and the health of others.
Motherhood has opened me to a whole new area of interest within my practice that encompasses prenatal health, family health and childhood developmental disorders. I really enjoy helping families stay healthy as a unit, and educating clients on how to prepare and boost family health for the all dreaded "cold and flu season". I also have a personal interest in intestinal healing, autoimmune support, skin issues and histamine intolerance/issues. I am continuously expanding my knowledge in the fields of intestinal health, (heavy metal) detox, PEMF therapies. and holistic cancer support. I am a huge proponent of incorporating the "good", healing frequencies we have access to through both nature and PEMF as well as working to eliminate exposure to the "bad" frequencies we encounter with EMF pollution. Further reading on this can be found in the PEMF and Energy Medicine section of this website.
