My journey has encompassed a multitude of experiences that led me to examine my relationship—and its benefits and consequences—with food and holistic health. When I stopped playing sports, I gained a lot of weight. When I got bored, I found it easy to fill that void with eating and drinking. I noticed my allergies got better or worse depending on what I ate.
I lived on three continents and noticed the correlation of what the local culture was putting into their bodies and the outcomes of those decisions. I was familiar with the physical training side of health but that was it; I knew there was a lot more to it and I wanted to learn more.
I eventually found The Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) and learned how the many facets of health tie together. I found out how to eat for MY body and how to achieve a balance that worked for me. By learning about traditional philosophies such as macrobiotics and Ayurveda, and hundreds of dietary theories, such as the glycemic index, The Zone, the Mediterranean diet, and Blue Zones, I realized something critically important:
There are many paths to health, but there isn’t one-size-fits-all approach: we are all unique.
I now feed my whole self and couldn’t be happier. I’m active, healthy, and feel great, The best part now? I get to help people achieve the same balance and happiness they have always wanted.
I invite you to take control of your health.
