I am a functional medicine nutritionist based in Eugene, Oregon.  My very engaging nutritional therapy practice has been up and running since 2015, serving clients locally as well as some from around the world. My practice focuses on using nutrition, natural modalities and lifestyle changes to optimize digestive health, thyroid and metabolic function. It’s been a tremendous amount of work to educate myself and establish my practice.  It is also one of the most rewarding experiences 

of my life. 

 

I earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting and an MBA. I was a hardworking business and IT professional for 15 years, working eight years for Deloitte. I enjoyed my business career, yet I found my focus shifting over time.  

 

My interest in nutrition was piqued in 2002 upon meeting my future husband, a long-time sufferer of autoimmune disease. Witnessing firsthand the ineffectiveness of conventional medicine, a desire to find alternative methods to help my husband grew in my heart.  This ambition only intensified in 2010, after experiencing my own health crisis.  I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and endured a traumatic surgery with rare life-threatening complications. 

 

As painful as this experience was, it blossomed into the realization and motivation that it was necessary to take my and my family’s health into our own hands. I then embarked on my journey of intensive study of food and nutrition. After applying lifestyle changes to myself and my family, I experienced and witnessed the amazing improvement in our health and wellness. Nutrition has become my life’s passion. This passion and my desire to share such valuable knowledge with others spawned my nutrition practice. 

 

Along with over a decade of researching and studying gut health, chronic inflammation and the endocrine system, I have successfully completed multiple practitioner's trainings:

  • 2013: I enrolled in a one-year training program from Institute for Integrative Nutrition and was certified as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach.

  • 2016: I became a Hashimoto's Institute Practitioner upon successful completion of a comprehensive thyroid training program through The Hashimoto's Institute. My teachers in this program are the nationally renowned naturopathic-endocrinologist Dr. Alan Christianson, thyroid pharmacist Dr. Izabella Wentz, and functional nutritionist Andrea Nakayama. 

  • 2017: I participated in SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) Master Class practitioner training hosted by SIBO expert Australia-based naturopathic doctor Nirala Jacobi.  That same year I spent six months delving into a comprehensive digestive function practitioner training through the Institute of Nutritional Endocrinology, upon completion becoming a Certified Digestive System Master Coach. 

  • 2019: I completed the following trainings:

    • Three-year practitioner certification program from Institute of Nutritional Endocrinology focused on comprehensive lab work analysis and methods for using natural modalities to heal digestive disorders and hormonal imbalances

    • Functional GI Practicum by naturopathic gastroenterologist Dr. Steven Sandberg-Lewis

    • Mastering Inflammatory Bowel Disease by naturopathic GI expert Dr. Ilana Gurevich

    • Gastrointestinal Strategies and Treatment Applications by functional medicine pioneer Dr. Datis Kharrazian from Kharrazian Institute

 

From my experience working with clients, I have witnessed a strong connection between body and mind.  Many physical health issues are rooted in unresolved emotional traumas.  I am currently attending Transpersonal Energy Healing practitioner training, a program to educate in how to better enhance a client's mind/body awareness.  I am especially excited about this program. We must pursue every avenue in our quests to achieve optimal wellness.  

Awareness of one’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing is fundamental to understanding our behavior patterns, and their connections with past traumas and ongoing emotional stress, and how these play a role on our decisions and approaches to lifestyle and relationships. TEH insights will help me guide clients to self-discovery of what lives in their subconscious in order to effect healing on the cellular level. This training provides a crucial guidance system that establishes trust and rapport, creating a healing bond that accelerates healthy transformation. 

When not immersed in nutrition, I am likely absorbed in other passions such as dancing and yoga (I am also a certified yoga teacher). I am in the midst of a wonderful life journey, with plenty of highs and lows, and most of all, an abundance of learning. I am grateful for the many experiences and growth opportunities. I want to continue to grow and to learn more about love and compassion, about foods, nutrition and cooking, and about fitness and spirituality. Putting these all together is essential for our wellbeing.  

 

I’m passionate about helping others realize and live up to their potential by using food and lifestyle to build a solid foundation for personal growth. I believe the right lifestyle fuels creativity and ingenuity that can support our wellbeing.
