Growing up an only child in rural northern Maine, I always searched for something to light me up. Regardless, I knew whatever that thing was, I would blaze trails, defy norms, and break free from traditional ways of thinking.

 

In college, I changed my major three times, finally settling on a degree in Medical Laboratory Science. That job was quickly unsatisfying so I went back to the drawing board, and, by age 25. I started my career as a Physician’s Assistant. Initially, I thought it answered all my hopes and dreams – and it was, for a while. I began working for a well-respected General Surgery team and in that space, I felt like I was really helping people.

That all changed after enduring months of infertility treatments, resulting in being blessed with twin daughters in May of 2014. I returned to work three months postpartum, this time in an outpatient family practice setting. With little room for growth, I simply walked through the motions: a pill for this, a quick fix for that. It’s like I had sold my soul to big pharma and professional disenchantment returned.

 

In September 2016, my world imploded with personal and professional challenges, threatening my well-earned reputation and financial security, forcing a cross-country move with my young family.

 

All the while, I struggled with daily, debilitating abdominal pain and bloating. Unbeknownst to me, a raging storm of repressed anxiety swirled through my body, gaining more energy as I pressed on. I sought help from my primary care provider, gastroenterologists, nutritionists, etc yet my condition continued to worsen.

I searched for solutions to my chronic health concerns, but it was not until I started working with a Functional Nutritionist that began to emerge from the weeds. Always looking to drive change and improve, I set out on a relentless quest to heal.

 

Shortly thereafter, I began my training as a Functional Nutritionist, and from that point forward radical transformations occurred.  I was healing and so were my patients. And for the first time in ten years, I felt like I was making a real, authentic difference again.

Today, I am happy to say I live without chronic pain, accomplished through intentional shifts in my diet, lifestyle, and mindset. Living that fast-paced, stress-ridden, emotionless life was a certain path to self-destruction. But I emerged and didn’t let that become my story.

 

Like you, I faced chronic health challenges. I came out the other side and am determined to help you do the same; to hold your hand, educate and empower you to reach your health goals. Unlike most practitioners, I’m up for the challenge to solve your complex health concerns.

It takes a special person to ask for help. To want to change. To listen to the little voice inside that is telling them there has to be a better way. Like me, maybe you’re searching for something you haven’t found. You’ve been everywhere and tried everything. That’s why you’re here. 

If that resonates with you, welcome : )

I am honored and grateful to guide those who are lost to find their way and regain their life back.
