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. My passion is to help women look and feel their best. Bringing the spirit, the mind, and the body into harmony, which to me is the essence of holistic beauty. I would love to help you discover health and beauty from the inside out and create your skincare products for the unique beauty you are!
