My Mission

Emphasizing a whole food and supplementation to restore deficiencies and nutritional imbalances for a client’s comprehensive health. The end result being a client’s body functioning properly and seeking its own ideal weight! I have a “no limits set” approach to finding the pivotal place for change in a client’s mental, physical and emotional journey.

My Passion

When my son, Kanaan, was born with Down syndrome, he had many medical issues specific to Down syndrome. One being AVSD open heart surgery specific to trisomy 21. This was the spark that ignited a place inside me to gradually move incrementally through different learning resources to be proactive in Kanaan’s, my own and my clients’ health.
