I’M A TOTAL NERD WHEN IT COMES TO HEALTH AND WELLNESS.
If you would've told me even just a decade ago that I would have an interest in health and wellness, I would've laughed. However, God had other plans. For a variety of reasons, including toxic mold exposure and unmanaged stress, our family's health plummeted. Nearly every family member was struggling with problems ranging from extreme eczema, psoriasis, miscarriage, multiple food sensitivities, migraines, vertigo, rheumatoid arthritis, severe fatigue, and even hormone problems. I refused to accept this as our lot and I dove head first into finding a solution. That is when I found functional medicine. What I discovered absolutely changed our lives. As a result, I'm passionately motivated to help others do the same.
A FEW RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME:
- I love, love, love quality dairy-free dark chocolate.
- Our family is interracial with my husband being from the Philippines. I said my vows in Tagalog (the Filipino national language) when we married in 2006.
- When I was a kid, you could often find me playing in the woods, writing poetry or sketching. I had a period where I was obsessed with drawing Garfield.
- I rarely give up on anything. I may find myself frustrated but I push forward unless something truly needs to be let go.
- I most closely relate to an Enneagram Type 1, though I like to believe I’m decently resourceful during this stage of life. I’ve been told by many that I tap into my “7” arrow well.
- I have a great love for reading and learning and am constantly keeping my mind fresh with the latest research on a variety of topics.
HERE’S WHO I REALLY AM…
I’m an unashamed Christ-follower, wife to one of the world’s most gracious husbands, and busy mom of five children (ages 4-11) and a puppy! I can assure you, I’ve experienced and learned a few things about fatigue and stress over the years!
WHY AM I SO DETERMINED TO HELP WOMEN ACHIEVE OPTIMAL HEALTH?
I lived for years in a fog of illness, chronic pain and fatigue. My family and personal life suffered as a result. Doctors couldn’t give me any answers. It was implied that it was “all in my head” or “of course I was tired, I had five young children.” I wasn’t satisfied with those answers and went on to find answers within functional medicine.
When I graduated from the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy, I knew immediately that I wanted to serve women and children. Though there are many areas I’m trained to assist with, I'm extra passionate about creating healthy habits with a proper mindset, managing stress, and busting fatigue. If these are in check, so many other health struggles fall into place. So I jumped in with both feet and haven’t looked back.
We all want to be healthy and feel more amazing, right?
The truth is, it can be confusing to know where to begin. When we feel overwhelmed, it’s easy to give up even before we’ve started.
