Professional Biography



I am an experienced, board certified family nurse practitioner, board certified functional medicine practitioner, and also hold a board certification as a menopause practitioner and nurse coaching.  I have been focused on improving the healthcare of my community since 2005.  I have over eight years of hospital experience helping to put a band aid on our healthcare crisis.  As a primary care provider of almost four years, I have worked with my patients to improve their health outcomes, but have come to learn that change is hard even in the face of real dire risk to health and happiness.  I have also found that current mainstream treatments are not the answer, in most cases.  My patients using prescription drugs have continued to suffer and have developed new adverse health concerns from the drug side effects.  This reality motivated me to seek new solutions, which I have found in functional medicine and nurse coaching.  I currently combine my training in functional medicine with my nurse coaching skills to help clients make real, positive changes towards a happier and healthier life.  Let me help you achieve unbelievable results!  Click here to get started!

My passion for functional medicine and true healing has led me to find ways to teach other nurses and nurse practitioners these healing practices.  I developed and teach the Functional Medicine for Nurses through the Integrative Nurse Coaches Association, and I also teach nutrition to nursing students.
