I began my wellness journey at a young age after experimenting with holistic treatments for health issues. I started practicing yoga at the age of twelve and became certified in Transcendental Meditation that same year. I quickly realized the deep benefits of eating well, practicing yoga, taking homeopathic supplements, and meditating daily. After graduating from Gettysburg College, I moved to New York City to join the corporate world as an event planner in the media industry, where I have worked for over 11 years. My world changed when I suffered a serious concussion in 2017.

Despite the medical community’s attempts, my condition worsened with time. I remembered the lessons of my childhood practicing TM and yoga with my mother, took my health into my own hands, and dedicated six weeks to healing with the support of an Integrative Medicine doctor for Cortical Integrative Therapy in Rhode Island. The holistic treatments gave me back my life.  I began to think of health differently and learned to listen and trust my body.

I was inspired to dive deeper into why the accident happened and realized my body was screaming for me to slow down. Before the accident, I’d been planning my wedding while working around the clock—and forgetting to check in with my well-being. I also realized that health is so much more than eating well and exercising, it’s also about the people we are surrounding ourselves with, our careers, home and work environments, and the products we are using on a daily basis. The modern world can be extremely tolling & toxic on our bodies, and while we can’t control everything, we have the power to make simple changes that have a lasting impact. I realize first hand that it can seem nearly impossible or intimidating to find time to fit wellness into your life, but I am here to provide tips and tricks that you can carry with you throughout your busy modern lifestyle. 

I believe health is all about balance and not extremes. 

Ever since my accident, I have spent every moment of my spare time researching and learning more about health through books, mentors, podcasts, product labels, & the personal health stories of others, which inspired me to enroll at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. I am now a Certified Holistic Health Coach. I also worked at Clean Market as a Market Specialist to further enhance my knowledge. 

My mission? It’s my intention to help guide and empower you to take care of your body because it’s the only place you have to live in.
