When I was younger, I attempted many restrictive diets and cleanses in the hopes of losing weight. I was obsessed with what I ate and how much I exercised, because I struggled with body image. I had subconsciously allowed the “yo-yo diet” cycle to take control of my life.
I studied at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in Vancouver and over that period of time, I experienced a shift in my perspective towards food, thanks to my education, training, and passion. I learned about anatomy, chemistry, biochemistry, body mind spirit, mental health support, pathology, and much more.
I graduated from CSNN with the designation as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist after working with 12 client case studies and having successfully written the final exam. This is how I discovered my passion to help others learn what I have learned about holistic nutrition.
I moved back to my hometown on the Sunshine Coast, where I taught nutrition workshops, and started working privately through one on one nutrition consultations with clients.
I studied and trained at Canadian Fitness Education Services where I became a Certified Group Fitness Instructor. I began teaching fitness classes before breaking my foot in a dirt biking accident, 3 months later.
Naturally Nourished started soon after the COVID 19 pandemic began, as I decided to take my nutrition services online. It was finally clear to me on who exactly I wanted to help, and that's the "yoyo dieters"!
I began my training as an aspiring Intuitive Counsellor. My intention is to combine my nutrition and counselling skills, so that I can deeply support my clients with all aspects of their life, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. My overall relationship with food has improved tremendously since I was young, and I can say that I have finally achieved food freedom. My life has changed for the better; I have energy, I sleep well, I’ve learned how to deal with my stress and cravings, and I owe it all to the practice of eating mindfully through holistic nutrition. I’ve successfully worked with a large number of clients, who I’ve watched grow and transform their lives. There is no better feeling in the world than seeing my clients become healthier and happier. And I wish to teach you all the tools that I have been given so that you too can be, “Naturally Nourished.”
