I'm a mother, nurse and functional practitioner with an unshakable passion for preventative and holistic care.
As a community nurse, I often felt restricted with the types of services I could offer or discuss with my patients. This lead me towards the creation of my own online/mobile business.
I now work collaboratively with a Nurse Practitioner to provide the best in functional health and integrative services.
I entered the nursing profession with a cardiac intensive placement in Toronto General Hospital, even though I loved cardiology, I was drawn to the flexibility, challenge and excitement that community care offered. I worked with a diverse population of patients, including diabetic management, oncology, palliative care, IV administration, dialysis and complex wound care. As my knowledge in the topic of Functional Medicine expanded, I noticed the intense need for a TRULY holistic approach in the prevention of chronic disease. Since a good portion of my career involved managing pharmaceutical side effects while ignoring root causes, I started to feel disconnected from nursing in the main stream model.
After working with my own functional health coach, I experienced the beauty of holistic care close-up. I decided to become certified as a functional practitioner, this allows me to run high-quality functional health labs for my clients. By addressing my own root causes, such as detoxification issues, hormonal dysfunction, food sensitivities and bacterial overgrowth- I reduced my anxiety while increasing my mental focus and energy level. I believe that everyone deserves this level of care and I am on a mission to educate people about the complimentary and/or preventative power of functional health coaching.
Our bodies have the innate capacity to heal themselves and I strongly believe that the current conventional health model should be complemented with a holistic and integrative approach that encourages preventative health. Since the conventional model waits for us to become sick enough to be labelled by a diagnosis, we should not solely depend on it for lasting health. There is an alarming need for collaboration between preventative and modern health industries. My mission is to show people how to blend both conventional and preventative approaches to obtain the best health results possible.
