“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 understand 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 California and Nevada. I served as a Qualified Medical Examiner , an Independent Medical Evaluator, a member of the California Chiropractic Association and the International Chiropractic Association. I also provided chiropractic and personalized nutrition with a women's shelter and helped run “Community Chiropractic Care Days” at my office in Nevada. Now here in Bethel, CT, I am helping patients with personal nutrition and functional medicine. Through the magic of technology and telehealth, I see patients both near and far.
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 love to research all things hope, health and wellness as well as cook. My soul truly soars out in nature. You can likely find me with my family out on a hike, a bike trail, paddling a kayak, skiing a hill or just exploring the great outdoors.
My best friend is my husband, Scott. We have two adult daughters and a son in boot camp 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!
