My vegan health journey started in 2014 with a wise soul named Tony Robbins. After attending several of his events I was solidified as a vegan. I ate a cooked vegan menu from March 2014-January 2017. February 2017 I decided to try eating a Raw Vegan 80/10/10 diet for 6 months. High carbs, low fat, all vegan and once again......Life Changing!
I now consider myself to be a sometimes imperfect Raw Vegan. I eat about 99% raw food each and every day. Fruits all day and lots of veggies in the evenings. That being said, Raw Food has opened a gateway to my passion and my soul. Since transitioning to a raw vegan lifestyle I feel compelled to live my passion. When you start consuming more raw food your body starts to renew each cell, each emotion and spiritually you are lifted. It's like a total cleansing of your inner space and this cleansing can be scary for many people. As humans we rarely take quiet time for ourselves and so when we start to hear our inner voice, some people revert back to cooked foods. I started to listen, I wanted to feel free, and now that I understand my soul, I can no longer go back to who I once was. Now I must coach, and speak about the Raw Vegan Lifestyle. I must educate others on how powerful food is for you mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
My goal is to offer classes that allow you to fully experience your inner passion and share it with the world. I believe that with high energy food you can thrive and live each day from a place of love and happiness. My gift in this lifetime is to help others develop their true soul potential and I can't wait to share this journey called life with everyone!
I truly believe Hippocrates had it right all along, "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food."

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being. I also use a far-infrared heating mat lined with amethyst, jade and tourmaline. Benefits of this include: Support the immune system, relief of minor aches, pains and stiffness, increase circulation, reduce inflammation, improve sleep and so much more.

Fitness Kinesiology honors your body’s uniqueness when it comes to your biology, physiology and movement requirements. It is a system of muscle testing that allows me to design a workout routine tailored specifically to your needs.
My goal is to assist you in discovering what type of exercise your body is currently craving. And more importantly what it needs for optimal muscle strength, endurance and function. Fitness doesn’t need to feel like a “must do”, it can be enjoyable for your body and mind. I will guide you towards enjoyment of exercise and less of that “chore” mindset.

Nutritional Kinesiology is a precise evaluation and treatment system that determines with great specificity not only what is currently happening in your body but also what your body requires to heal itself.
My primary goal is to support you in outgrowing whatever health problem you might have. This often happens one layer at a time, like peeling an onion, from the inside out and from what is primary to what is less primary. This approach allows for a healing response that harmonizes with the nervous system for you to feel less stress and more peace. This harmony also strengthens your immune system and uplifts your mood.
