Her work is based on the intersection of the mind and body through which she supports mood and neurological shifts through dietary and lifestyle changes, herbs and supplementation.

I have a love for food, cooking, nutrition, healthy living and self-sustainable communities in all of their forms. I was an organic, biodynamic farmer for a couple of years in Oregon and in Mexico and bring that hard work, my love for the land, and ”getting down and dirty” to everything I do now. My practice is informed through my experiences and training in whole foods cooking, health promotion, and bioregionalism. My goal is to empower people to become healthy and take control of their own healthcare, food “systems” and lives. To that end, as “Nourished Health: Nourished Communities,” I contract with nonprofits and community groups that are focused on food justice, agriculture, health or wellness to provide program evaluation and planning support.
My education focused on looking beyond the food pyramid to an individual’s dietary needs based on biochemical makeup. I am a Certified Nutrition Educator through Bauman College School of Holistic Nutrition, a Certified Clinical Herbalist through the Academy of Scottish Herbalism, and a Certified Natural Chef through the Professional School of Natural Cookery. I regularly attend cutting-edge holistic nutrition and medical herbalism conferences and seminars in topics ranging from functional endocrinology to hormone balancing, addiction and blood chemistry analysis, to stay abreast of the most recent research and information concerning holistic health and wellness.
I have worked with clients for over seven years, with a mission to help individuals age successfully, achieve optimal health, and prevent degenerative diseases through positive food and lifestyle choices, combined with physical and emotional rebalancing. I share my knowledge to empower clients to take control of their own health with food choices that best support their specific health condition and specific metabolic type, that also strengthen the local food system and community. I work within the healing framework that every ill health condition can benefit from a solid foundation of healthy foods choices, lifestyle modifications, and community support.
I consider the “whole person” within the “whole system,” rather than concentrating on a particular body part or a specific disease isolated from its community context. With a holistic approach, symptoms are viewed as signals that something is requiring attention, rather than the symptom being treated as the primary problem itself. Prevention is a priority. As a holistic practitioner, I not only educate clients on the best ways to prevent dis-ease, but even more importantly, how to take their current state and strive for optimal health, which can result in increased energy and an overall feeling of wellbeing. Often times this can be achieved with small changes in one’s diet and lifestyle. Other times it’s a more involved journey. Either way, significant results can be achieved if you are open to making the right choices along the path to regeneration.
