Over the course of my tenure in finance, I was fortunate to work alongside of several driven, accomplished colleagues. I received mentorship from engaged managers who continually encouraged and applauded my professional growth. The pursuit of achievement was rewarding in many ways, but it came at the expense of my health. After receiving a series of uncomfortable diagnoses, I leveraged traditional Western interventions as well as Lifestyle and Integrative Medicine practices to aid in the restoration of my health. Accessing the various therapeutics that reside on the Allopathic to Complementary intervention continuum introduced me to the precepts that shape my care paradigm today. Leaving behind a rewarding, stable career to pursue a radically different opportunity takes moxie and unquestionably I would not have been able to launch The Nutrition Attaché without first learning how to effectively manage my health needs.
If I’m not in the kitchen experimenting with a new recipe, you’re likely to find me on my yoga mat, enjoying Peloton cycling and strength classes or relaxing with my husband, son and dogs.
Personal experience with the healing properties of diet and lifestyle is not sufficient to present yourself an expert qualified to work in a clinical capacity, however my time as a patient has shaped my empathy for those who are looking to recapture a sense of well-being.
