How I Got Started

Prior to becoming a Nutritionist, I had been attending functional medicine seminars since the early 90s, and worked for a major airline for 25 years. After taking a trip to Africa to climb the mountains, I became very ill and after visiting a number of specialists and being on antibiotics for months, was finally diagnosed with a parasite. The side effects of the antibiotic played havoc on my gastrointestinal system, and no one could help me resolve the issues.

Desperate to figure out what was causing my issues, I started reading and studying, trying to find a protocol to ease my symptoms. Eventually, treating myself for candida, a fungal infection.

From that experience, realizing a void that needed to be filled in this area, decided to return to school to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Dietetics & Nutrition, furthering my studies through the Institute of Functional Medicine and was in the inaugural class of 2013.
