Since 2015 I’ve been studying with Andrea Nakayama, an expert in the field of functional nutrition. After completing her Digestive Intensive and Full Body Systems programs, I pursued a mentorship with her to receive my certificate as a Functional Nutrition & Lifestyle Practitioner. My work as an FNLP allows me to enter into therapeutic partnership with clients experiencing complex health concerns.
I received my training as a Health Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s cutting-edge Health Coach Training Program. During my training, I studied over 100 dietary theories, practical lifestyle management techniques, and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts such as Dr. Andrew Weil, Director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine; Dr. Deepak Chopra, leader in the field of mind-body medicine; Dr. David Katz, Director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center; and Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University.
My education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in functional and integrative nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work with clients to help them make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a certification in TESL and a minor in music from Appalachian State University. Post Graduate work includes courses in Expressive Arts Therapy. I am a Certified Reiki Practitioner since March 2011.
