I cannot wait to help you feel your best and achieve your goals!
My first degree was a BS in education from the UW-Madison. I loved teaching and have always been interested in how eating right and making healthy lifestyle choices impact health in a positive way. As a preschool teacher I imparted those messages to our impressionable youth.
My next act, as a stay-at-home mother to two daughters, helped me dig deeper into the principles of health and wellness in order to support my growing girls. My interest became a passion. I decided, when my youngest daughter went to kindergarten, that it is never too late to follow a dream. I enrolled in the renowned Nutrition Therapy Institute (NTI) in Denver, CO and began my new education journey. My dream came to fruition when I delivered my thesis on Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome in November 2015 and received my certificate as a Master Nutrition Therapist.
My education at NTI helped me understand that profound wellness is not achieved by trying the latest diet craze of the moment. Profound wellness is achieved when we respect our body’s innate wisdom and incorporate a whole-foods diet and make healthy lifestyle choices. Just eat real food and move your body. It really is that simple.
I live a fulfilling life in Edwards, Colorado, the mountain town of my dreams, with my supportive husband and two amazing, growing daughters. My passions include trail runs in the sunshine with my friends and family, riding my bike, camping, skiing and spending lots of time in my kitchen creating nutritious and tasty meals for my family and friends.
