Three years ago I was asking myself “what is wrong with me?” I had feelings of anxiety surrounding body image, career, and I couldn’t help compare myself to others. I was over-exercising to make up for my feelings about my body and choices around food. I was tired from not sleeping well and stressed out… all the time. I was anxious when I didn’t feel like I had control, and I obsessed over food, and being “healthy.” I desperately wanted to be healthy and happy (truly happy*) and fix what was wrong with me.
I help individuals reconnect with their intuition and most importantly the relationship you have with yourself. This means not only the food we put on our plates, but also our careers, relationships, dreams, and thoughts that we have. The work I do is more than a meal plan or prescription, it is learning how to trust our bodies and take loving care of them.
Professional experience: Following my undergraduate degree I worked for The University of Vermont College of Medicine as a co-investigator and research coordinator, while obtaining my Post Baccalaureate Pre Medical Program Certificate. I then completed my graduate degree as the valedictorian of my program. Prior to my work as a Holistic Health Coach I worked as a Physician Assistant specializing in Hospital Medicine and Emergency Medicine. I am honored to have work at institutions including Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
I currently work as a Physician Assistant in Functional Medicine at The Stram Center for Integrative Medicine where I incorporate my passion for wellness, nutrition, and holistic health. Outside of work you can find me hiking in the Adirondacks with my family, spending time on my yoga mat, or crafting up recipes in the kitchen.
