Hey everybody!

First I would like to welcome you to our site! I am so excited for the journey ahead as holistic living has become a huge passion of mine over the last 10 years! Let me give you a little background about me. During my highschool years, there were two areas that I was interested in: cooking (must have been that home economics class :)) and the medical profession. Now, you are probably thinking that those have nothing to do with each other, right? It wasn’t until the last several years that I began to see the connection. You know that saying, “You are what you eat?” Well, that couldn’t be more true! Every time we put food into our mouth, we are either feeding disease or fighting it! I have really come to see this first hand in my professional career. Let me tell you a little more about my career to date.

I decided to pursue a career in nursing as I was passionate about helping others. I received my undergraduate nursing degree from The Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, GA in 1997. I then went on to complete my graduate education and receive a Master of Science in Nursing from Emory University in 2001 specializing as an adult acute care nurse practitioner. Since 2001, I have been working in the field of cardiovascular medicine. In 2003, I joined the faculty at Emory University and continue to lecture, coordinate courses and clinical placements for nurse practitioner students. I see the long term effects of living an unhealthy lifestyle on a daily basis in my patients. Lack of exercise and eating a diet full of chemicals and toxins really take a toll on our bodies. This harsh reality has only fueled my fire for sharing the things that I have learned and incorporated into my daily life over the last several years to help others transform their health too!

I enjoy fitness and consuming healthful meals as the combination of these really makes me feel my best! It wasn’t until 2013 that I was introduced to an additional piece to the puzzle of holistic health, essential oils. I fell in love with these amazing gifts that God has provided and have been educating others on the use and benefits ever since. I am a business leader for my team of wellness advocates. I also provide health coaching and wellness consultations for those interested in transforming their health. I am passionate about helping others achieve their health and fitness goals so that they can live a full and vibrant life! My hope and prayer is that you too will find inspiration here and begin living YOUR BEST life too!!

Xoxo
