I have always been fascinated by languages and communication. Through language, we understand ourselves, each other and the world around us. Through communication we make change.
After I got my Master’s Degree in Communication and Culture from York University, I worked in marketing and advertising for a few years. I also excelled at teaching languages across the world. However, I realized that it is another kind of language and communication that mattered to me the most.
When one of my children was diagnosed with ADHD / ASD, I knew that medication would not offer a long-term solution. Instead, I believed in identifying and treating the root cause of the imbalance while supporting the self-healing power of the body. So, I turned to natural solutions - the whole foods diet and the art of supplementation - to help my child thrive. Behavioral changes brought about by the nutritional therapies were amazing. Inspired by the results, I went on to fix many of my own chronic health conditions by learning to listen to the body and answering with the right nutrients at the right time.
After my family experienced first-hand the power of nutrition, I decided to become a Holistic Nutritionist and graduated from the Institute of Holistic Nutrition with First Class Honors in 2015.
My true passion today lies in teaching you the language of nutrition. That is why I founded HAPPY NUTRITION - a fun, interactive, and informative one-stop-shop that will educate, inspire and encourage you to make your family healhier and happier!

WHAT IS A HOLISTIC NUTRITIONIST?
Holistic Nutrition is a natural approach to health that uses evidence-based techniques for diet, lifestyle and detoxification. Instead of focusing on just one aspect of the person, or taking a one size fits all methodology, holistic nutrition evaluates the complete health history, emotional state, environmental exposures to toxins, lifestyle habits and current diet habits of an individual to determine the root cause of his or her health issues.
