I was born and raised in the Seattle area with a short stint in Eastern Washington until I got married and began raising a family. We then picked up and moved to AZ, which is where we currently reside. I am happily married, raising our four beautiful kids. I am a Holistic Health Practitioner, certified with Pure Vitality University. Health has always been important to me. Although, at 26 I had a major health scare with a diagnosis of ovarian cancer. It was a hurdle I was determined to make it over and fortunately did. The story doesn’t end there though. After the diagnosis and surgery, I went on to have my third child, and as the years progressed we saw more and more learning delays. I never realized at the time how toxic my body was and how capable I was of passing those toxins onto my unborn child. Her neurological issues have made me dive in even more to health and healing. Couple that with my own chronic health issues that came on in my mid 30’s that literally left me falling asleep on the carpet by 9 am while I was homeschooling. Life did not feel vibrant, to say the least. Also, my eyes were opened even more to our family history of chronic health issues, ranging from chronic fatigue, depression, celiac, and more. I became determined to get to the bottom of it all and draw a line in the sand. The buck stops here! The endless hours of research were life-giving! I found my passion. I knew I was not the only person out there struggling to make it through each day. So many others need the right help too! My desire is to find the root cause of what is making you sick and heal from the root instead of bandage the problem.
