As with most people, I love food. I have always tried to feed my family, what I thought was a healthy diet, but never truly understanding the power of food.
I started my career path in the health care industry as a Certified Medical Assistant. Although I enjoyed my work, I felt the strong desire to follow a more natural approach to health. I found the opportunity to transition to alternative health care and jumped aboard. The last 10 years in holistic medicine have solidified in me that food has amazing power to heal. I was inspired to go back to school and further my passion by studying nutrition on a professional level. I am now a Certified Holistic Nutritionist through AFPA. With the constant change in nutrition science, I pride myself on actively keeping up with current research by attending seminars, webinars and certification programs.
I am not paleo. Not gluten free. Not low-carb. Not sugar free. Not vegetarian. Not vegan. Sometimes I eat foods or maybe a meal that fits neatly into these categories, but I actually strive to eat as wide a variety of foods as possible. This is what makes me feel healthy and happy.
