Certified Women's Health Coach
Women's Reproductive Health
Hormonal Health Specialist
Before my work helping others as a Registered Nurse and Certified Women's Health Coach, I had my own health journey. Years ago, I suffered from periods of awful acne, anxiety, menstrual pain, and painful ovarian cysts. I was placed on birth control to help, which ended up causing its own set of issues for me due to crazy side effects.
I decided that I would start looking into more holistic approaches to address my issues. My first step was changing my diet., which was horrible at the time. I was amazed at how nutrition truly made such a huge difference in how I was feeling. I built upon those habits by beginning to exercise, and incorporating many other healthy lifestyle changes into my routine. Over time, my acne cleared up, my menstrual cycle was more regular and less painful, and my ovarian cysts finally stopped forming.
I now work with women who have many of these same issues by showing them how to leverage nutrition and other healthy lifestyle habits to improve their hormonal and reproductive health, and optimize their fertility naturally. I have a level of empathy and compassion for my clients that is so genuine because I've been there before. I've searched for solutions only to be given a birth control pill. I've been told that my period issues were "normal", or "typical" women's health issues. I've been worried about my fertility due to a strong family history of fibroids and endometriosis. I GET THE STRUGGLE! The good news is that there are so many things you can do to prevent and even reverse these issues. The purpose for my business is to show you how.
I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from the University of Cincinnati. I have worked in various areas of nursing such as medical surgical, nursing education, case management, postpartum and gynecological post-op care, along with clinical quality improvement.
I went on to obtain my general certification for health coaching though the National Society of Health Coaches and subsequently completed additional extensive training for a specialization in women's health. I pursued fertility training, completed a women’s health apprenticeship under women's health expert and author, Nicole Jardim, and I still participate in countless hours of research and continuing education courses.
My mission is to show women that there are NATURAL solutions to your health challenges. You don't have to suck it up as "just being a woman", feel defeated due to a concerning family history, and you do not have to live with your hormonal and menstrual symptoms. There is a way to get to the root cause of your health concerns and address them with a holistic and lifestyle approach.
