Functional Nutritionist & Clinical Herbalist
Having grown up in a rural farming family, I have always felt a strong connection to more natural ways of life. Although I received degrees in business early on, I have had an intense interest in natural health, nutrition and wellness counseling for more than 20 years. Using herbal medicine in my own life to rebuild an immune system damaged by over-medication with anti-biotics as a child into early adulthood, I discovered a natural approach to health and wellness. My years of studying holistic health along with my passion for empowering people to embrace a more natural path toward healing illness and achieving optimal health have enabled me to tap into the wisdom of ancient healing traditions while utilizing modern, evidence-based science.
In 2011, I launched Sage Integrative Health Center with the goal of helping people live healthier, happier lives using herbal medicine, nutrition and wellness coaching. Prior to opening this practice, I worked in the field of advertising and marketing for nearly 15 years both in business and as an Adjunct Faculty member at Temple University.
To me, nutrition and healing aren't about regurgitating protocols or placing 'shoulds' on people, it's about getting to our core beliefs and taking time to better
understand why we make the decisions we make, not just with food, but with our lives. We are complex beings with a wide range of past experiences, perspectives and beliefs. Attempting to inflict one
way of "healthy" eating on someone is not respectful of their uniqueness and their story.
My approach as a clinician and in life is one of connection to our own ability to make solid decisions on our own when we are empowered to go within and hear that deep, wise voice from within. Our bodies and our spirits know exactly what is best for us from the foods we put on our plate to the decisions we make day in and day out. My philosophy of nutrition, teaching and life all stem from a very similar place which draws on ancient wisdom. Native American traditions, Ayurveda, traditional Chinese Medicine and other holistic modalities teach us not to separate the mind, body and spirit; when are minimized to organs or organ systems, we become a heart, a pancreas, a liver instead of a whole being who is dynamic, multidimensional and comprised of an interconnected network. It is in approaching illness and imbalances from a space of wholeness and empowerment, that change really begins, not just on one's plate, but in their mind.
