My Journey to Becoming a...

Soul Connected Mama...

My journey to becoming a holistic wellness and life coach began in my early twenties. After receiving an autoimmune disease diagnosis at the age of 21, I spent several years getting really acquainted with every kind of "ologist" that you could imagine! I learned a ton about my body, but not much about how to heal my autoimmune disease without the use of prescription medications, which I was too afraid to take! This led me on a journey to find out what types of holistic interventions really made an impact on my own health and wellness, and ultimately helped me to turn the corner after years of struggle. I’ve gone through many phases of eating highly-processed, ultra-convenient and nutrient-free “foods” under false pretenses that these were healthy for me. I now eat a balanced diet full of whole foods that are as close to the living source as possible and as toxin-free as my current budget and lifestyle allows.   

 

The success I achieved after taking charge of my personal health and wellness sparked a fire in me for holistic wellness, which led me to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where I obtained my certification as an Integrative Nutrition Heath Coach. This program taught me so much about how to support clients who are struggling to achieve their personal wellness goals, and how to identify various areas of their lives that impact their ability to achieve the balance that they desire. I have found that the phrase “being healthy” means something different to everyone.  To me, being healthy means that my body, mind and spirit are all connected and functioning to the best of their ability. I strive for excellence and balance in all areas of my life including my mental health, career, relationships, sexuality, nutrition, emotions, and spirituality. I obtained my certification as an Usui Reiki Master, Crystal Reiki Master, and Life Purpose Coach out of my desire to combine nutritional support with energy work to help my clients bust through the blocks that keep them from achieving true healing and wellness, and keep them from passionately leaning into their purpose.

 

In addition to these certifications, I have a Bachelor's Degree in Education, as well as a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, and have worked as an Elementary Special Education Teacher for more than 8 years. It brings me joy to share with others what I’ve learned on my journey and to be a cheerleader for those looking to better and lengthen their lives, improve their health, and decrease their risk of illness through their own lifestyle and food choices. If done in a sustainable and practical way, these choices will lead to long-lasting, healthy habits for life.

 

I honor your bravery for stepping into my "soul connected world," and I can't wait to support you along this AMAZING journey!

 Love & Light,
