“You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress, simultaneously” - Sophia Bush
I see myself as your hope, health and wellness advocate. I believe health is a journey that starts on the inside. I am here to guide, encourage and empower you to be the best version of “you” that you want to be- physically, mentally and spiritually.
As someone who has personally walked through chronic, debilitating migraines and perimenopause struggles - I do get it. In 1998, I began practice as a board licensed chiropractor, but my personal journey ultimately set me on a course of post graduate studies to obtain a functional medicine certification.
I was blessed to practice for 17 years in both California and Nevada. On top of private practice, I also served as a Qualified Medical Examiner and an Independent Medical Evaluator. Having a heart for serving under resourced communities, I provided regular health care services for a local women's shelter and helped run “Community Chiropractic Care Days” at my office in Nevada. Now here in Bethel, CT, I am helping patients through personalized health coaching, nutrition and functional medicine. I see patients both near and far alike.
I have been involved within my church and faith communities, leading various women’s groups, speaking, teaching, and organizing events/conferences.
In my free time, I am a bit of a research nerd on all things hope, health and wellness. I am a total foodie and love to get creative in my kitchen, often taking pictures of my food. But where my soul truly seems to soar is out in nature, whether it’s with my hiking boots, a bike trail, paddling a kayak, skiing, sight-seeing or just a walk in my neighborhood.
My best friend is my husband, Scott. We have two adult daughters and a son serving with the Marine Corp. We have two very friendly and curious kitties that you may see around my home office, Maya and Kai. I am a woman marked by my faith which leads me in both my personal life and practice.
If you would like to start off with a conversation, tell me your story and see if we are a good fit - reach out to me. I am here to help!
