My Story

When I enrolled in Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I wasn’t looking to be a health coach. Honestly, I wasn’t sure what I was looking for. A few years prior, I was researching alternatives to drug therapy for my chronic sinus condition – sinusitis, allergies, etc. I wanted something better than pill popping, nasal sprays, and weekly shots.

I was also about 30 pounds overweight from a college diet of pizza and bagels. My weight was negatively affecting my ankles and reproductive system, and I was tired all the time. I hated the work I was doing and didn’t feel like my life had much purpose.

I had spent the year transitioning to a plant-based diet free of all animal products, and noticed a profound change in my health and overall well-being. I also noticed how my dietary changes were affecting those around me and I began to question our relationship and attachment to food.

Around the same time I enrolled at IIN, I decided to take my Kundalini Yoga practice further and trained to become a teacher.

That was 2004.

Today, I no longer stress about  my weight and I’ve since released all dogma about what it means to be healthy and the idea of good versus bad foods. I’ve come to understand that everyone must start where they are and make habitual changes for lifelong health and well-being.

Integrative Nutrition helped me realize that what we eat is just part of who we are, and while it’s important, it’s not the only qualifier of a happy, healthy, and meaningful life.

I have a satisfying career making full-time money working part-time as a Wellness & Lifestyle Design Coach and Consultant for food and farming.
