I am a Certified Nutritional Practitioner practicing in Vancouver, BC. I am a graduate of The Institute of Holistic Nutrition. I was raised by a very traditional family and grew up always being thankful for the food on my plate, no matter what it was that was served to me. My culture was heavy on the processed animal meats, fish, and rice with very little exposure to live, whole foods and vegetables. I developed a lot of gut health issues but through my experience and knowledge, I was able to heal myself by eating foods with medicinal properties. Along with that, I started to address stress, move my body and educate myself about sleep hygiene. Over the years, I have learned the value of health, the true meaning of quality of life, appreciated and took advantage of the accessibility of natural healthcare that still exists in today's world. I simply learned to indulge in everything that fed my mind, body and soul. It took me years to learn the connection that food really has to our overall well-being. However, I became more tuned in with my body especially through school and experience, I studied the root causes of my health concerns and later healed myself through nutrition and lifestyle. My experience with healing my gut combined with my nutrition studies make me a knowledgable nutritionist.
When I am not working or cooking, you can find me travelling, enjoying the outdoors, playing beach or indoor volleyball or catching up with some friends.
