When I was younger, I attempted many restrictive diets and cleanses with the intention of losing weight. I was obsessed with what I ate and how much I exercised, because I struggled with body image. I was a, "yo-yo dieter."
I attended The Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in Vancouver, where I studied anatomy, physiology, chemistry, symptomatology, pathology, eco nutrition, body mind spirit, mental health support, and much more. Every single morning before class I was excited and eager to learn more as my passion grew stronger.
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. My experience working with those clients was so inspirational and fulfilling that I knew that this was exactly what I wanted to do.
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 part time in Pender Harbour, to compliment my career and lifestyle.
Naturally Nourished started soon after the COVID 19 pandemic began, as I decided to take my nutrition services online. This allowed me to work globally with clients, as far as the USA and all over Canada.
Through all of my experience I’ve shifted my perspective towards food, I've developed mindful eating habits, I indulge in treats without guilt or shame, and have developed a healthy relationship with food. And I have been passionately teaching others to do the same since then.
As a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and Certified Group Fitness Instructor, I refer to myself as a, "Holistic Coach." I’ve successfully worked with over 50 nutrition clients, instructed over 60 hours of fitness classes to participants, who I’ve watched grow and transform their lives. I LOVE helping my clients become healthier and happier. And I wish to support you so that you too can be, “Naturally Nourished.”
