Like so many women, I was living the “new normal” as a full-time, commuting marketing executive with two small children – frenzied, stressed out and exhausted. I often gobbled down whatever I could find at work, ate from the kids’ plates, called walking 3 blocks from the train “exercise” and rarely got more than 6 hours of sleep. Then I began experiencing major panic attacks so frequent and intense that I found myself avoiding work and social activities “just in case”. Shortly after I started having serious digestive issues that forced me to start dodging even more events, including my children’s holiday shows! After an episode that left me in the ER severely dehydrated and exhausted but with no discernable diagnosis, I vowed that I would focus on getting my health back. I just had to get my life back and I just knew there had to be a better way!
My first major “ah-ha” moment came from learning how my gut dysfunction and my stress and anxiety were completely connected.. really one system behaving badly! When the brain isn't functioning well, the digestive system begins to falter and in order to heal myself I would have to heal both! Another O-M-G moment came when I discovered how multiple food sensitivities and a leaky gut were ruining my ability to absorb nutrients. It wasn’t just about eating better and getting more sleep, I had to really rebuild my health from the ground up. And on this journey, a new world of health and conscious living opened up for me…and for my family.
My goal is to help other women face their own health demons that are a result of living in a fast-paced world while not making self-care a priority. With small, achievable changes made over time, you can experience more gratitude and self-love that let you support those you love and strive for your own dreams. It’s a darn tall order – and sometimes there will be bumps in the road - but it's also delicious and incredibly rewarding. And I’m on the journey with you.
I'm here to guide you on your journey to truly nourish your body, mind and soul and reclaim the life you deserve.
Let’s go be amazing!
