My Story

In 2019, my mother suddenly passed away from Heart Disease, which I now know to be the leading cause of death in the United States, and pretty much across the globe. That event totally sent me into a state of disarray, as I didn’t know how to handle something so traumatic.

My Studies

I took a deep dive into our healthcare system because I wanted to know where sickness and disease come from! I was going to leave no stone unturned, so the more research I conducted, the more I kept getting pointed back to the food — our food. During my studies, I found out where heart disease comes from, where most cancers come from, and where most, if not all, diseases come from including obesity, diabetes, autoimmune conditions, etc. If you would allow me, I’d like to be your personal nutritionist and lifestyle coach! Directly after high school, I joined the US Navy where I became a Master Training Specialist at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. I now use those same skills I learned in the Navy, and I’ve combined them with my passion for seeing others transform their health through positive lifestyle changes to lose weight. Let me show you what Functional Medicine is all about, and why they call me:

“The Health Transformation Specialist”

About six months after my mother's passing, she came to me in a dream and told me that I have the God-given ability to heal people. Well as you can imagine, I had no idea what that dream actually meant considering I was in the worst shape of my life. I was 50 pounds overweight with soaring cholesterol numbers and pre-diabetes. It wasn’t until my uncle passed away one year later from Cancer, (which is the second leading cause of death in the United States) that I actually realized what my mother meant when she came to me in that dream. Fast forward one year later, and I’m now a Certified Holistic Nutritionist/Health Coach, and 66 pounds lighter. I went from 183 at my heaviest down to 117; which is what I weighed in my junior year of high school!

I lost the weight and regained my health, not because I wanted to! But, only because I was willing to do so by the recent tragedies that occurred in my life. So I decided to skip all of the nonsense and cut straight to the chase.
