Some Fun Facts About Me:
I have a mini golden doodle pup named Gracie. I was a competitive figure skater from age six to 22 and competed at collegiate nationals two years in a row. I recently discovered my absolute love of all things veggie gardening. My favorite color is pink and I love to dance (like no one is watching) in my spare time :)
A Bit About My Personal Journey
In 2018 I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's, an auto immune condition affecting the thyroid. At this time, I was in college juggling my homework assignments, tests and social life while struggling with symptoms of severe and chronic fatigue, anxiety, brain fog, migraines, digestive upset, cold intolerance, hair loss, chronic infections and weight gain.
I was ultimately able to bring my Hashimoto's into remission through integrating both traditional and holistic approaches to health. I was put on medication for the sub optimal state of my thyroid, but was also supporting my thyroid and immune body as a whole. I did this by initially observing not only the foods I was eating and the movement (or lack thereof) I was doing, but the relationship I had to these things as well as the habits I possessed and the self talk I was creating and replaying for myself that kept me in a unsatisfied, unhealthy and unfulfilled cycle. This practice of coming home to myself...finally working with and not against my own personal & physical wants and needs, not only helped me to physically feel better, but to live a more empowered, confident and authentic life.
