I have always had a passion for natural health and helping others feel their best. My inspiration for living a long healthy life is my grandmother, who lived well into her 90’s while maintaining a healthy balanced life in body, mind and spirit. With that goal in mind, I became frustrated. I was frustrated that I wasn’t feeling as good as I thought I could. I looked for guidance from the mainstream, but they didn’t have answers I was looking for. As a new mother, my young daughter was having many health challenges and when she started to get exercise induced asthma, I was told that, "that's just what kids get." That set me off on a mission to find answers for myself. With my new determination, enthusiasm and researcher mind set, I knew there had to be a better way! While health challenges continued in my family, I stayed persistent to find the answers in a natural and holistic way. I wanted answers from head to toe, not just something for this symptom or that symptom. Most of all, I wanted to know why. Why is this happening? What I found was a truly inspirational mentor who has helped me put it all together and set me on the journey to where I am today. Using my degrees in Biology and Health Science from Hope College, I furthered my education to become a Board Certified Naturopathic Doctor from Trinity School of Natural Health. Along with other certifications, I have the natural health foundation, or the roots of wellness, that can take you from “why do I feel this way?" to "I feel great!.” Most importantly, I have vast experience with people with chronic health conditions such as Lyme, SIBO, IBS, Pandas/Pans and mold toxicity. I will guide you with natural modalities that are affordable and accessible, such as diet and lifestyle modification, detoxification and improving digestion that will incorporate the root cause to wellness and bring the body, mind and spirit back into balance, helping you feel your best, naturally.
