Having graduated from Northwestern University with a B.A. in Psychology, I am extremely interested in the human brain and the reasoning behind our behaviors. The body is all connected—our thoughts and emotions influence our actions.
An internship at Health Magazine and a role as editor for Northwestern’s chapter of Spoon University enabled me to further research the psychology behind eating and the Superfoods that strengthen our bodies and combat both chronic and temporary conditions that we undergo day-to-day.
An internship as a nutrition advisor with TruFit marked a moment of enlightenment: beyond journalism, a true passion towards working with people one-on-one and helping them achieve personal health goals was revealed.
The Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) centers on creating a life based on well-being and happiness, and its impact has allowed for a “ripple effect” to spread throughout the world. The teachings go beyond traditional medicine and nutrition, as the school boasts 100+ dietary theories and takes a post-modern and holistic approach towards working with individuals.
My education has addressed chronic diseases, blood sugar regulation, digestive/gut issues, inflammation, thyroid complication, emotional and stress eating, insomnia, cancers, arthritis, migraines, metabolism, the gene-environment complex, Ayurveda, Chinese medicine, and more.
