A little bit about me
I played hockey and lacrosse competitively throughout my entire childhood & teenage years. As well as, during the time I spent in University.
Competitive sports taught me many core values, which I believe I carry into my life on a day-to-day basis. I thrive on being challenged, as I am competitive in nature.
I am a very motivated, determined, and dedicated individual, which is why I believe I am the right person to help coach individuals about the power of nutrition and wholesome food.
I have a strong passion for health & wellness. Despite the set backs I have faced, I am beyond grateful for the health challenges I have endeavoured, as they have lead me to where I am today.
In my spare time I now find joy in studying nutrition, cooking, baking, and brewing kombucha.
My Health Journey &
How I got into Holistic Nutrition
I have been on my own health journey for quite some time!
I developed gastrointestinal issues well into my second year of University, where I was studying to attain a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology.
I was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome not long after these horrific symptoms began.
For years & years I sought out help from different medical professionals.
Only to be sent home with the same phrase,
"I'm sorry, it looks like you just have IBS".
I was never given any instructions on how to manage my diagnoses.
I was lonely, hopeless & desperate for help, which no one seemed to be able to give me.
I figured it was time to become my own advocate for my health.
I decided to seek out help from a naturopathic doctor. Through blood testing, I was diagnosed with candida, leaky gut syndrome & parasites.
I had a very poorly functioning liver & my immune system was shot.
I had to completely change my life in all aspects.
I became so interested in nutrition that it soon became my passion. The debilitating digestive issues I had & the new found passion I developed for nutrition led me to apply at the Natural Nutrition Program at CSNN. This program truly changed my life,
I learned how to get to the root of my digestive issues using holistic practices.
Throughout this journey I have finally found my purpose in this world,
which is to share my knowledge about nutrition
& to help others who have similar stories to mine.
