As the name Inner Wisdom suggests, the foundation of my nutritional, health and wellness knowledge comes from my life experiences. Living and working on our cooperative organic farm, being a doula and Birthing From Within childbirth educator, recieving a BA in Environmental Science, teaching in a variety of settings, raising my three kids, and traveling the world has allowed me to accumulate a wealth of knowledge from which to draw from.

Seeking higher training in my passion, I graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I learned innovative coaching methods, practical lifestyle management techniques, and over 100 dietary theories; everything from Ayurveda, gluten-free, and Paleo, to raw, vegan, and macrobiotics, and everything in between.  I was taught the concept of bio-individuality, which means there is no one way, no one diet that works for all.  One persons cure is another's poison.  Health and wellness is about knowing and honoring yourself.  As I became interested in the bodies energy system and wanted to support myself and others to heal their energy system, I became trained and certified in both Reiki and EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques). Both of these modalities have proven to be very supportive transformational tools.
