I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition®, where I learned more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle management techniques and innovative coaching methods with some of the world’s top health and wellness experts.
My teachers included 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; Dr. Walter Willett, Chair of Nutrition at Harvard University; Geneen Roth, bestselling author and expert on emotional eating, and many other leading researchers and nutrition authorities.
This education has equipped me with extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, health coaching, and preventive health. Drawing on these skills and my knowledge of different dietary theories, I work to create a personalized “roadmap to health” that suits each client’s unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals. Together, we make changes that produce real and lasting results.
Before pursuing an education in holistic health, I attained a BA in Psychology and Youth Leadership & Development from Anderson University and served two years with AmeriCorps, Public Allies Indianapolis. As a Public Ally, I acquired training in asset-based community development, diversity and inclusion, strengths-based leadership, affirmative inquiry, and several other topics pertaining to nonprofit capacity building and community development. I also received a certification in community leadership and transformative peer coaching.
