For most of my 20’s and 30’s I had low energy, erratic moods and uncontrollable belly bloat. Like many people, I tried so many things in an effort to feel good in my body – acupuncture, the Atkins diet, intense aerobic workouts and more. Nothing helped me to feel healthy and whole.
After a lifetime of doctor visits, we discovered I had celiac disease. It turned out I am allergic to both gluten and dairy. My body had been in a constant war with itself for years.

More about my story...
In the beginning of my healing journey, I was very resistant to changing my eating habits. It felt like a life-sentence in prison to never be able to eat crusty, flaky bread again. Feelings of victimhood arose as I watched the rest of my family and friends indulge in pizza and fried chicken among other things. After ingesting these foods, I hated the way I felt, but I hated feeling left out even more.
I know I’m not alone. Many of my students have expressed similar fears that they’ll no longer enjoy eating some of their favorite foods if they release gluten, dairy and sugar.
I was determined to find a better way.
My studies at NYU had inspired a lifelong commitment to perseverance and excellence, so I chose to study plant medicine at the Arvigo Institute in Belize. Spiritual studies healed my relationship to food, at the Inner Connection Institute, as I achieved my certification as a healing practitioner. A few years later, I threw myself into studies at the Academy of Culinary Nutrition which led me to become a Culinary Nutritionist and teacher.
I discovered that life can be lived with so much more joy when eating plant-based. I feel amazing in my body when I consume whole foods, making sure to include protein, healthy fat and fiber at every meal. There are so MANY nourishing foods to discover – including moist bread and decadent chocolate cake! My moods are more stable and my hormones are in balance.
I would love to help you discover what works for you too!
