My professional story began in 2007 as a Yoga Teacher and Clinical Medical Assistant. Early on I learned and enjoyed the benefits of joining traditional medicine with holistic practices for vibrant health, fitness, and beauty. Pursuing my passion for integrative health, I became a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner through the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, and was formulating skincare/beauty products of all kinds. About this time, I started my first holistic health care office offering consultations, yoga, and my skincare/beauty products. In order to deepen my understanding and knowledge, I enrolled in the Doctor of Naturopathy program at the Trinity School of Natural Health.

Then in 2014 life came to a halt as I underwent open heart surgery. Following the procedure, I faced a difficult road to recovery; depression and severe physical limitations to name a few. It took a while to regain my strength and confidence but after months of recovery, I was finally able to teach classes again while working in occupational health. In 2015 on the exact anniversary of my open heart surgery, while performing a yoga photo shoot, my subclavian vein collapsed. I had emergency surgery where they removed my first rib to facilitate repairs on my vein and again, a painful and slow healing process would follow. Once it was manageable, I returned to teaching. I became known as the one-armed yoga teacher because I couldn’t raise my arm above 90 degrees.

Over the next several years, I gained invaluable experience in both the medical and naturopathic fields while furthering my education. In 2018, I graduated with my Naturopathic Doctorate, and also passed my board examination through the American Naturopathic Medical Certification Board.
