LIVING HEALTHY. LIVING SIMPLE. LIVING WELL.
If I could sum up my beliefs in just a few words, I’d say that I believe in living simply: eating foods from the earth, thinking good thoughts, using non-toxic products, and doing what makes you really happy.
I made it my mission in life to do what I love as much as possible. When I was fresh out of high school, I remember trying to decide between pursuing graphic design, culinary arts, and nutrition. I always loved art and design, I always had a strong interest in health and the human body, and after several life changes (and epiphanies) at the age of 18, I developed an irrevocable passion for simple living and a holistic lifestyle which led me to become a Certified Holistic Nutritionist in 2011.
Everything you find on my website, in my YouTube videos and in any other content I create, reflects my passion for simple living. I do my best to keep the tips I share practical and to the point, as well as the recipes I create (fewer ingredients), the items I own (less belongings) and the way I organize my days (to-do lists, please!)
I wish I could say I’ve had an obstacle-free life, although, in reality, I don’t wish that at all. I would certainly not be who I am today if it weren’t for all the things I’ve experienced. I also wouldn’t be doing all the things I now do!
My very first blog – an outlet I adored for writing poetry – was born in 2010. As my interests in health and my experiences in life grew, the topics I wanted to share became what you can now find here on this very website.
In my early twenties I began dealing with some troubling digestive complications after a bacterial infection in my gut (C. Difficile, to be exact) which led to the diagnosis of post-infectious IBS (and my subsequent focus as a Nutritionist in the area of digestive wellness). I’ve not only experienced the dark sides of anxiety throughout my life, including depression after a bad concussion in 2012, but the bright side of coming out on the other end.
My passion for writing, inspiring, and healthy living are combined through my blog and weekly videos on YouTube. Whether it’s helping you eat better, reducing stress, finding the courage to do what’s right for you, or teaching you a thing or two about healthy living, that’s what I’m here for!
