Hi! I'm Heather...
A certified functional nutrition and wellness professional who is passionate about helping my clients build a healthy and highly functioning body and mind through food, movement, and detoxification practices so that they feel energized, focused and capable of pursuing their ambitions, and becoming the best version of themselves.
Through the lens of my own personal experience in recovering from digestive issues, mold & heavy metal toxicity, and chronic fatigue, and their implications on my ability to focus, anxiety levels and GI discomfort, I know first-hand how impactful nutrition, a healthy gut and a reduced toxin lifestyle can be in resolving these health issues.
When traditional Western medicine left me without answers to my health concerns, I sought a functional approach to healing. In this process, I learned about the power of nutrition as medicine as well as the impacts of chronic stress, toxins and gut dysbiosis. This led me to pursue a career in functional nutrition and wellness so that I could support others who are experiencing the same frustrations with their health and who want to take a holistic approach to addressing these health issues.
I take a bio-individual approach to nutrition because there is not a one-size-fits all diet that works for everyone. Each person has their own nutrition needs based on ancestry, current lifestyle, health history, health struggles and preferences.
I start by helping my clients address their priority foundations of health which may include supporting blood sugar, improving digestion & absorption, balancing fatty acids & minerals, and removing toxins from the body and environment. We always take a whole-foods first approach and ensure we are sourcing and preparing our foods properly. When we focus on supporting these priority foundations, our body has the amazing ability to rejuvenate itself so that we feel whole and highly functioning again.
I am a proponent of building healthy practices in small bite-sized pieces so that new lifestyle habits feel doable, and more importantly, SUSTAINABLE. Small wins will give us confidence and provide motivation to keep going. The compound effect of those small changes, done consistently over time, will lead to long-term change, and that’s what we want! When you work with me you’ll have an empathetic and steadfast partner on your health journey, so you never feel you are alone in the process.
