My Story

Six years ago my life changed completely when I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease.

Months of mysterious joint pain and chronic fatigue had left me feeling like my body no longer belonged to me. Tasks that seemed so simple before like getting out of bed, brushing my teeth, getting dressed, and feeding myself became daunting and painful. After months, my doctor finally gave me a diagnosis – it was lupus. More specifically, I had Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). And that was when my journey with nutrition and yoga began.

I still remember my first yoga class.

My mind kept going as I curled myself into child’s pose, moved from pose to pose and laid in my savasana. I kept thinking to myself, "is this really benefiting me?"

However, after going to yoga classes for months, I learned that the practice allowed me to be friends with myself again and accept my body for where it was at right then and there.

I started thinking there could be more than living with pain and chronic fatigue.

I started being curious about the food I put into my body and its effects on my body. I started trying new foods, taking foods out, and learning about food. I also started realizing how stress had a huge impact on my health. And I started to see how these changes positively affected my health.

From my heart

I believe that the journey to better health is ongoing. I am passionate about supporting and guiding others through this journey. My goal is work together with you and your healthcare team and create a plan that will support you and your health goals.

I want to inspire others to live holistically by becoming attuned with their bodies, connect to others and their environment, and incorporate a whole foods diet.

My credentials

Formally, I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist (R.H.N.) and certified yoga teacher. I am passionate about supporting others as they navigate through their journey to better health. After experiencing chronic pain and being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, I found living a holistic lifestyle helped me reconnect with to myself and eased the pain and fatigue I experienced.

I graduated from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition (CSNN) in Vancouver. I develop personalized wellness plans for clients by suggesting foods that will support their bodies reach optimal health, creating meal plans, and incorporating lifestyle changes such as yoga and mindfulness techniques. I specialize in supporting clients with digestive issues, food sensitivities, autoimmune conditions, hormonal imbalances, chronic fatigue, and chronic pain.

I completed her 250-hour yoga teacher training at Langara College in Vancouver. I currently teach yoga to children ages 3 to 18 with Yoga It Up!, a group that focuses on social and emotional learning, positive psychology and mindfulness. My love for learning continues. I have had the honour of completing the following trainings:
