"Life belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams" - Eleanor Roosevelt

My health and wellness journey began at 12 years old when I took an interest in nutrition and physical fitness. At age 19 I became a certified yoga instructor while working towards my B.A. in English at St. Mary’s College. After working with individuals with various psychological issues, I became increasing interested in how food affects one’s psychology and biochemistry. This inspired me to earn an M.S. in Psychology with an Emphasis in Nutrition from Dominican University. During this time I also became a member of the Psi Chi Honors Society, which is an international organization that recognizes academic excellence in the field of psychology. After completing grad school, I began studying functional medicine in order to help my clients identify the root causes of their health issues and completely cure them.

Today, my Integrative Health Consultation practice combines my background in psychology, nutrition, functional medicine and fitness to provide my clients with highly customized and comprehensive services to restore and maintain optimal health.

My purpose in life is to help people heal physically, mentally and emotionally so that they can become the healthiest and most fulfilled version of themselves they wish to be. The services I offer are tailored specifically to each individual’s health concerns, goals, genetic potential, mental and emotional well-being, metabolic type and lifestyle in order to effectively assist them in achieving and sustaining their health and wellness goals.

My ultimate goal is to raise the consciousness of every person I meet and impact so that they are living in their full potential and full being.

  • What motivates you?

What motivates me is truly knowing that my life purpose is to inspire and assist people in fully realizing and achieving their potential. I love showing people who they truly are by helping the dissolve their limiting beliefs and sabotaging behavior patterns so that they may fully awaken into the highest and best version of themselves and live their dream life.

  • Describe a difficult situation you were in and how you overcame it?
A difficult situation I was in and overcame was a pattern I created in my life of attracting friends and romantic relationships that was draining and abusive. After enduring so much emotional and psychological abuse from a previous relationship I finally choose to stand in my power and know my worth and ended the relationship peacefully and with grace. I overcame this by making a conscious decision to love myself and value myself enough to only allow the highest and best people and energy into my life. This transformative period has brought me to a place in my life where I am in the best shape of my life, making the most money I have ever made and I have the most amazing friends and support system now.
  • What are your goals for the future?
My goals for the future are to continue to inspire as many people as I can on the biggest platform possible. I will be the next Oprah. A version of Oprah that loves to workout, wear red bottoms, cook and say “Holler!”
  • What’s your favorite snack?
My favorite snack? I love to eat, so it depends on the day, or hour, and what I’m craving. Currently one of my favorite snacks is the pHresh Greens brownie bites I just created the other day. Holler!
  • What’s your favorite motivational quote?
I have lots of quotes I like, especially ones by Eleanor Roosevelt (what an amazing woman), and one of my favorites from her is “Life belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”
