Discovering holistic, clinical nutrition
My interest in holistic nutrition stemmed from my own experiences with childhood eczema, asthma, allergies and, later-on, infertility.
Under the care of a clinical nutritionist I was able to manage and overcome these conditions and came to understand the importance of a healthy diet and nutritional support in disease management and prevention.
The more I learned on my journey the more compelled I became to share the knowledge I had gained with others.
This powerful experience drove me to become a driven advocate & communicator and eventually to pursue a career in nutrition.
So, in 2011, happily pregnant with my son, I set out on the path to becoming a nutritionist.
