From an early age I fell in love with cooking and nutrition. At the ripe age of 16, I was curious about the benefits of going on a vegetarian diet. As soon as I switched over I noticed a huge increase in my energy and mindset, not to mention my gut microbiome started digesting a lot more efficiently! Then when I started college I started having migraines and tried a myriad of different medications. After no success, I started focusing more on my sleep, hydrating, transitioning into a more whole food vegan diet, reduced my alcohol intake and started doing yoga. It didn't take long before I reaped the benefits and my migraines disappeared! This made me realize the importance of solving health issues at its core as well-being often starts in the gut. This has propelled me to dedicate myself to helping others improve their own wellbeing through lifestyle changes.
I obtained my B.S. degree in Nutritional Sciences at the University of Arizona and then went on to complete my Dietetic Internship at California Polytechnic State University, SLO to become a Registered Dietitian. Afterwards, I wanted to combine the benefits of nutrition with medicine and received my Nursing B.S.N. degree at Creighton University. In addition, I completed my yoga teacher training in Bali, Indonesia at Aayaa yoga to learn more about how to help others improve their mental well-being. This knowledge allows me to treat each client in a holistic manner by combining nutrition, medicine and mindfulness all in one. My expertise includes plant based nutrition and gastrointestinal health after completing the Health Takes Gut program.
