My mission is empowering and supporting my clients, walking alongside and guiding them on their personal wellness journey.
An RN experienced in most medical specialties, I became fascinated by the role of nutrition and holistic healing when faced with my own health challenges. By implementing diet and lifestyle changes, I eliminated pain, fatigue, and a host of auto-immune conditions by identifying food and environmental triggers. During my personal journey to wellness, my passion for helping others and empathy from my own experiences led me to a new dream – marrying my education and knowledge of conventional medicine with my personal experiences and further education in holistic, integrative nutrition.
Since becoming certified as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach through The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I have been walking alongside and empowering clients through their own transformations. Continuing my education is a passion of mine and I enrolled in the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy.
In addition to coaching with Turning Your Leaf, I am also the founder of David’sDream Foundation.
