I began my mission for health after my daughter was born. I wanted to find ways to make our lives as healthy as possible. All my research for optimum wellness began and ended with food. The next logical step for me was to study nutrition. I completed the nutrition program and the Holistic Health Practitioner at the Global College of Natural Medicine receiving my nutrition consulting certificate and HHP diploma. I am board certified through the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. I have recently become a certified Personal Trainer through American Fitness Professionals & Associates program. I will have my 200 hour yoga teaching certification in November 2010!
I have come to believe that holistic nutrition is a key factor to wellness. The body will function more effectively when given pure food, as it strives to stay balanced. When you eat an abundance of nutrients from quality foods you give your body what it needs to be healthy. I also believe that in order to be successful in choosing and sticking with any healthy lifestyle change you need to befriend the change. Once the healthy lifestyle change is embraced it will become part of your life for good.
