Hello! I am an aspiring Holistic Nutritionist, still in search of my desired specialty. I have a Bachelors of Science Degree in Public Health Education, and after much consideration, decided the teaching of Registered Dieticians did not fall in line with what I know to contribute to optimal health and well being. My goal is to compliment my degree with the amazing curriculum from NutraPhoria and have my own virtual Holistic Nutrition practice, or alternately, find an established wellness practice to contribute to.
After struggling for years with dieting and disordered eating, weight gain, acne and overall irritability, plus the confusion “fad” diets, I decided to finally take my health into my own hands. I sought out a Naturopath physician to run some tests on me that my primary care physician refused to run, and found out I had many food sensitivities (from foods I knew to be “healthy”) and issues with my gut. Even though I could now address my issues, a thousand PLUS dollars later, I was handed a bag of supplements and sent on my way to figure out the rest. I KNEW there had to be a better way to help people. That’s when I started learning about Holistic Health and Wellness, and Nutrition Coaching. That would have been so beneficial for me in my time of need! So now I am taking the steps to ease the confusion and intimidation for others, in hopes to create a healthier, happier and EDUCATED world.
