You are living your best life when your mind and body are balanced and healthy. That's why I take a truly holistic approach to prevent, and possibly even reverse disease so you can live your best life. My personal journey has provided me with not only the knowledge of both Western and Eastern modalities of healing, but also the wisdom through my own personal challenges that have shaped how I feel true holistic medicine should be practiced and facilitated.
I am a Registered Nurse, a Doctor of Metaphysics and Divinity, Interfaith Minister, and an Ayurveda/Meditation/Yoga practitioner and teacher of Vedic wisdom. I've studied under the inspired direction of Drs. Deepak Chopra and David Simon and completed their Vedic Mastery program in 2007. Further studies include a diploma in Ayurvedic medicine and an Ayurvedic medical internship in India. Earlier in my career, I spent over 20 years in the pharmaceutical research arena both conducting and monitoring clinical trials in all phases and therapeutic areas, and I know, that pharmaceutical intervention, while it has its place, is not the answer to the deeper problems regarding our healthcare. Having also been a Homecare Nurse and RN Care Manager for many years, I am intimately familiar with the problems our current healthcare system perpetuates, especially in our elderly; increased errors, poly-pharmacy, suboptimal and confusing communications amongst the care team, and lack of advocacy in general. These skills along with many varied experiences in healthcare, and other certifications including Reiki Level II, Spiritual Psychology, Conflict Resolution, Raindrop Therapy using essential oils, Past Life Regression, and Superconscious Transformational Healing, have given me a well-rounded perspective on health and healing and its intimate relationship to spirituality.
I currently practice, write, and speak about the disparity within medicine due to the pharmaceutical lobby and the lack of adherence to the laws of nature which subsequently affect health and healing, or the lack thereof. My intention is to bridge the gap between the remarkable advances in science & modern medicine and the holistic medical community where the focus is on consciousness, longevity, and aging gracefully through the ancient practices of Ayurveda Yoga, and Meditation, along with the mindful and minimal use of pharmaceuticals and surgery when necessary.
I am an animal advocate and an outspoken critic of the farm animal agriculture industry and its toxic relationship with big pharma. I plan to start a holistic retreat center and farm animal sanctuary to bring together the healing of animals and people through compassionate education, rescue when possible, and advocacy.
I work with clients who desire true transformation, not merely the artificial suppression of symptoms.
If getting out of the allopathic matrix and taking care of yourself differently is of any interest to you, book a Free 20-minute Solution Session to see if we are a fit to work together in one of my online health programs. I believe we need to be responsible for our own healthcare as it is the way to maintain our sovereignty and make the best decisions for ourselves.
I look forward to being of service to you!
My goal is to provide alternative/holistic coaching that has the capability to prevent and sometimes even reverse disease using the fundamental healing principles of the body, mind, heart and Spirit. In order to have true health and well-being, all dimensions of our existence must be working in balance and harmony. Transformation can start on any level yet it affects all levels. Where do you desire to transform your health or your life?
I care about your overall well being and that of the collective. If you choose to work with me, I will provide you with the guidance, knowledge, and tools needed to be healthy in all areas of your life. By living Your Best Life, you will be radiating health, happiness and fulfillment and inspiring others to do the same; literally leading by example.
It would be my honor to help you achieve optimal wellness!
No one theory has the answer. Inflammation is the cause of most, if not all chronic disease. As we age, we accumulate free radicals & other oxidants that when left unchecked, actually lead to oxidative damage attacking structures inside our cells that can cause serious consequences. Our bodies can capture the ability of antioxidants and put that capacity back inside our DNA, and specifically our genes. A protein called Nrf2 can be reawakened to flip the switch to turn these protective genes on. Extracts from plants can help activate the Nrf2 protein and bring it back to its full potential thereby leading to health & wellbeing for as long as possible.
Energy - As we age, our mitochondria (the powerhouse of our cells), our energy production, begin to break down. Nrf1 is responsible for mitochondrial health and turnover. It removes damaged cells and is responsible for making new mitochondria in the cell.
Sirtuin Theory - When you remove sirtuins from the cell, the health benefits of caloric restriction and fasting are lost. A molecule called NAD is required for Sirtuin activity. It links metabolism and is a way to activate this family of proteins that manipulates & increases sirtuin activity without caloric restriction or fasting and activates all of the resultant health benefits.
I believe we need to be responsible caretakers and stewards of our own bodies. I also believe we can age gracefully and do not need to suffer with weight gain, joint stiffness, premature wrinkles, low energy, insomnia or take on the maladies of our ancestors.
We can now be proactive rather than reactive by embracing a completely nutritional and natural approach to aging. Just like a healthy diet and lifestyle can only take you so far, Supplementation that addresses imbalances and deficiencies also cannot address all of the pathways that affect how we age. Through activation, our own innate ability to reduce inflammation & oxidative stress, make our own collagen, and facilitate communication between cells, is turned on, just like it was in our 20s!
LifeVantage, the Activation Company, can address these three layers of aging by opening the door of possibilities and changing the conversation as it relates to healthcare. And the conversation does need to be changed, now more than ever!

Our body-mind possesses the innate wisdom to know how to repair and rejuvenate itself. We simply must provide the necessary support to help it do what it already knows how to do. We access this inner wisdom through meditation and spiritual practice. By decreasing the internal mental and emotional turbulence, we can learn to hear the guidance that already exists within. We learn to make time for Self-Care and in doing so, we are better able to care for others.
I believe that while we can be doing all of the "right" things as it relates to nutrition and hydration, many illnesses are caused by the toxins in our foods, water, and environment. Avoiding manufactured ingredients and pesticides reduces the harmful substances entering our bodies. Detoxification practices can help you replace them with cleaner, more organically grown food and natural plant remedies aids the body in healing itself and preventing future disease.
"When diet is wrong medicine is of no use.
When diet is correct, medicine is of no need."
~ Ayurvedic Proverb
Yoga means "to yoke" or join together, body, mind, heart and Spirit. It teaches us awareness and presence and integrates with holistic medicine in that it addresses the whole person. Yoga increases flexibility, balance, and stamina, improves pain, decreases anxiety, and enhances the immune system. Focus on the breath is the most important part of Yoga practice. We learn to breathe in not only air, but life itself, while breathing out allows us to let go of toxins and things that no longer serve us. Yoga's focus is not only on physical health, but more importantly, wellness of the mind, emotions, and connection to Spirit.
The Divine intelligence that is in all things, exists also within all of us. Everything that has ever been thought, said, or done, past, present, and even future, exists in the Superconscious. By accessing this innate intelligence & wisdom and requesting it to heal past traumas, we can better learn to live in the present with joy and gratitude as well as to take inspired action in every area of our lives. This is not about going back re-living past traumas, but allowing the Superconscious, in its infinite knowing, to do whatever is necessary to support and promote gentle release of stuck energy, blocks, and barriers that may be holding us back from having everything we desire in life.
