What started out as a vain attempt to cure the chronic acne I endured for over a decade, God evolved my passion for health and wellness into something so much more.
For years I struggled with a number of health issues; weight gain, hair loss, chronic fatigue, anxiety and depression. One of the most difficult Health issues I faced was IBS. I remember excruciating pain and hunger, along with the stress of an unpredictable bathroom schedule.
Through this process, I really struggled with my self-esteem and self-loathing. I fought eating disorders, struggling first with Bulimia, then starving myself and working out twice a day, all to find myself still gaining weight and losing my confidence. Getting out of bed in the morning was near to impossible, not only because I was chronically fatigued, but because I simply didn’t see the point.
After such a trying time and some unforgettable guidance, I saw health and wellness in a different way. Because of my suffering, I can now empathize with those who have struggled with depression and eating disorders. Health is not about being skinny and beautiful, it is about being my best self to accomplish God’s work and live out my purpose. I feel God directed me to the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. What a joy it was to learn about the power of God’s food as a cure for physical ailments, mental disabilities, and chronic diseases. Now I get the joy of guiding men and women on their own unique journey, to help them experience freedom from food, image issues, and strongholds to finally love themselves for who God created them to be.
