MY STORY

I landed here as a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, working with clients just like you due to my own health challenges

that started at a very young age, 19 to be exact.

We all have our own healing story.

 

I had been dealing with thyroid issues since I was in my teens (looking back I see symptoms from my childhood) and diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, which is an autoimmune condition at age 19. 

I knew very little about autoimmune diseases then and made no real changes to my diet or lifestyle. No doctors told me what autoimmunity was or even what was happening inside my body.

As a result, I continued to live out my twenties binge eating, partying and working as much as possible to get ahead in life and make my way through university, leading to adrenal fatigue and burnout.

Almost a decade later at age 28, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer which completely flipped the switch for me.

The C word changed everything for me. 

 

Thyroid cancer was my rock bottom but this diagnosis was also the biggest blessing in disguise, as many people 

may never see their “C word” diagnosis as a gift, it really gave me a way out.

A new way of being was on my horizon.


It was my pivot point.

A catalyst of massive change.

A call for radical action.


 I shed who I was almost entirely, letting it all go, like an animal shedding last season's coat.

The things I was doing, toxic friendships, negative work environments and the things I consumed both physically and energetically,

I let it all go.

I re-evaluated everything I put into and onto my body.

 Since that day everything has shifted in my life.

I left my high-stress job never looking back and went to school full time at The Institute of Holistic Nutrition in Toronto to become a Certified Holistic Nutritionist.

Seasonal Eating

Seasons are considered a source of natural diversity that form the natural backdrop for eating. Our eating habits should change with the seasons. Our bodies crave warm, comforting root vegetables in the winter and fresh green salads in the summer – that’s traditionally all that was available for us. However, today with access to everything year-round, it’s easy to forget about the importance of the seasons when we eat. 

Eating with the seasons is one of the best ways to stay in rhythm with nature, get nutrient rich produce, connect with our community at local markets and feel grounded and nourished.

Nutrient rich meals

Eating nutrient rich foods goes far beyond just "eating your greens". A deepened understanding of the nutrient and minerals required by the body's many processes allows me to create customized meals that not only taste great but provide you with the much-needed vitamins, minerals and fuel that your body needs to recover from and illness, improve energy levels, balance hormones and assist in weight loss. 

food for everyday health

Preparation is key to success in all areas of life but especially in the kitchen when it comes to making healthy choices. My meal recommendations are realistic and adaptable to everyone, regardless of cooking abilities, confidence in the kitchen and dietary restrictions. I believe in making lasting changes sustainable and am committed to helping you take the stress out of eating.
