Strives to Inspire a Long-lasting Commitment to True Wellness

MY STORY

 

Like many practitioners, my path as a wellness counselor started with my own health challenges. I used to be a graphic artist, an airbrush artist to be exact. It never occurred to me that blowing rainbows out of my nose was a bad thing. I was working on the EPCOT project for Disney at the time. I was the youngest designer and only female on the team. Besides the toxicity, the stress was overwhelming.

 

 I was mainlining on coffee and junk food and when I was asked if I wore a mask when I used the airbrush, I replied “No, how could I smoke?” I had all kinds of health problems: heart palpitations, weight problems, headaches, allergies, hypoglycemia so bad I couldn’t function by the afternoon. I was quite young and I thought to myself, if I feel this way now, I don’t even want to know what I will feel like in my 40s, 50s, and 60s.

 

Then I discovered a nutritionist and she saved my life. The first thing she did was put me through a detoxification program, then she taught me how and what to eat, and turned me on to the dietary supplements I needed.  My life was changed forever. I feel better than I did when I was in my 20s. I was so inspired that I went back to school and changed my career.  I have been teaching and practicing Clinical Nutrition/holistic wellness for over 30 years.

 

When it comes to a disease symptom, I investigate like Sherlock Holmes, I search for the underlying cause of that symptom, not just cover it up with a Band-Aid. To me, to help someone restore their health back to balance is the most rewarding career I could ever have.  The rest is history!
