About Me
I am passionate about nutrition and staying healthy- emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually!  Originally from Chicago, I am a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner and Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. I have always been interested in healthy living, physical fitness, and nutrition.   As a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner I decided to focus on a holistic way of eating which also led me to become certified in Reiki.  This means that I feel it's important to eat a mainly organic whole foods diet without pesticides and other chemicals.  I am realistic enough to know that sometimes it's ok to eat that hot fudge sundae or slice of pizza but those should be looked upon as an "occasional treat."
In 2000 I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and was able to keep my symptoms under control by eating whole foods and avoiding gluten, sugar, processed foods and hydrogenated/partially hydrogenated oils.  In 2010 during a stressful time and not eating as well as I should have, I had a relapse and was then also diagnosed with Fibromyalgia.  After that I vowed to take better care of myself so as to avoid another relapse and have subsequently been successful.  I am so passionate about my success that I want to share everything I have learned with others who have health conditions or who just want to remain healthy.
I currently reside in Sherman Oaks, CA
