I’m Anne and I’m excited to embark on this journey with you. Nutrition can be truly transformative! It is the key in the lock to improving the quality of all aspects of our lives. I have experienced this firsthand, and I want to share my knowledge and motivation with others.
As a teen, I began to love individualized sports like swimming and running. When I was in ninth grade, I had a stress fracture in my pelvis, which months to diagnose and several months to heal. I had been to doctor after doctor, reporting pain but getting nowhere with a diagnosis. Finally, a physical therapist was able to lead me to an accurate diagnosis. She listened to me and helped me understand how my body functioned.
A year later, I developed a stress fracture in my shin. So far, I had to sit out two cross country seasons. Nevertheless, after a lot of care and proper training I was back on the course, running with my friends. I enjoyed my junior and senior years as a member of the cross-country team at my high school.
Throughout my high school years, my eating habits were very irregular. I developed an eating disorder, which continued throughout my first year of college. I had to do a ton of internal work on myself to figure out the “whys” and the “in betweens.” I did a lot of this work on my own, which was rewarding, but it felt very lonely. It seemed like I was always struggling, spending a lot of time and energy figuring out what to eat, and how to take care of my body.
When I became a mom, I was forced to focus on my own nutrition as well as my babies’. All three of my babies had digestive issues and eczema. I was determined to have nutrition steer their health in the right direction and get my kids on a healing path. By the time my third child came along, I was armed with enough knowledge to reverse her digestive and skin issues through nutrition.
Of course, life is not perfect. I have experienced the trials and tribulations of acne, anxiety, depression, hair loss, hormonal imbalance, adrenal fatigue, and stress. But my home base is always the same: nutrition. It’s really been the beacon in my health journey.
Even as a kid, I began to understand how nutrition and lifestyle habits could affect my body. There were many practitioners that would say “that’s just the way your body is,” or “you’re not built for this.” But there were so many other practitioners who listened to what I had to say, and who helped me heal. What I learned as a kid is that there are different paths to wellness, and each individual path needs to fit individual needs. As an adult and a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, I know that there are so many different detours and bumps along the way; and I love witnessing this with my clients. I love being there for challenges and successes, it’s what fires me up, and keeps me in this profession.
Thank you for your time and for allowing me to be your travel companion on your health journey! We will have so much fun together!
I advocate a balanced approach to nutrition and overall wellness. While I appreciate a solid research approach, I am also open to new health trends. One size certainly does not fit all! There is an incredible amount of nutrition advice out there. I help my clients uncover what’s real, what works, and what’s right for them.
I’m passionate about supporting women nutritionally through life’s stages within the context of modern society. I’ve personally experienced several modern world afflictions, such as acne, disordered eating, adrenal fatigue, gut dysfunction, miscarriage, and more. Today’s many roadblocks to optimal health can result in exhaustion, aches, pains, and hormonal imbalance from running on an empty tank.
What we put into our body has a direct impact on the energy we feel and bring to those around us. As women, it’s especially important that we feel seen and heard in our health journey. I empower my clients to eat in a way that works for their lifestyle – including eating more calories in order to be adequately fueled!
I enjoy open, candid conversations with my clients, allowing them to talk about their health concerns freely and without judgment.
