Over the past 10 years I have learned to greatly respect many of the stresses, obstacles to health and lifestyle imbalances that come with being a busy traveling performer. Issues of obsessive dieting and compulsive eating have plagued me since adolescence. Initially my desire for a greater understanding of nutrition and healthy weight management led me to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) and now it has become a passion of mine to share what I learned with others. Attending the Institute was a transformational experience for me and taught me how to nourish my mind, body and spirit through a holistic approach.
In January of 2016 I was diagnosed with a relatively unknown condition called Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome or POTS. POTS is a form of dysautonomia, meaning the autonomic nervous system no longer correctly regulates automatic processes such as heart rate, breathing, blood pressure and digestion. Through the help of my doctor and exercise physiologist,I am learning how to manage this complicated condition and believe a holistic approach including diet, exercise and meditation are key components in my further healing. My mission is to raise awareness for this condition as well as to reach out and support others who are suffering from chronic illness.
As a Holistic Health Coach I believe in an integrative inside-out approach to health that results in positive long- lasting lifestyle changes. Step by step I aim to educate my clients and give them the tools necessary to reach their goals and heal themselves. I draw on my love of music, running, yoga and meditation to inspire and encourage my clients towards greater health.
