As a self-labeled foodie, I am a Board Certified Holistic Nutritionist® who is committed to helping individuals protect their mental health and recover from addiction. I battled crippling anxiety, depression, and brain fog for six years before discovering that my food choices and targeted nutritional therapies were the keys to my healing. I obtained my Certification in Holistic Nutrition through the Energetic Health Institute in 2016. In 2017, I received my Board Certification through the National Association of Nutrition Professionals. After that, in 2021, I received my qualification as a Level I Certified Nutrition Recovery Coach through the Academy for Addiction and Mental Health Nutrition. I use my platform to educate the connection between nutrition, gut health, and brain health. I have spoken at Leading Age Arizona and teach across the Phoenix area. I also provide a guest lecture annually for Dr. Terry at Grand Canyon University. I founded the Abundant Life Nutrition and Wellness Center in 2016, which I now run with my partner, Kelly Calkins. I am passionate about supporting individuals as they pursue a holistic approach to recovering their mental health. As a Mum of three daughters, I live in Mesa, AZ, with my husband of 27 years. I love British movies, my dog, Maverick, and time spent communing with nature.
