From a young age, my family would often joke that I just wasn’t blessed with good health genes. I was that kid who was always struggling with something, from tummy aches, asthma, allergies and a weak immune system. This continued into adulthood where I just often didn’t feel good. Migraines, anxiety and always feeling tired were the norm. Deep down I knew this couldn’t be “normal”. And so I decided around the age of 18 to learn how I could heal. This journey started with learning what foods made me feel better and which made me feel worse and starting to meditate to heal insomnia and depression. Those first experiences were powerful launch pads that taught me that we can heal our bodies and minds. These powerful experiences promoted me to learn more about herbal medicine, supplements. I also decided to go to school for Psychology and Sociology so that I could better understand people and the way our society shapes our wellbeing. Since then I’ve done years of dedicated self study in various health topics. I have also gotten trainings in Yoga, Health Coaching, Craniosacral Therapy, Reiki, Behavior Change, and Corrective Exercise. 

My current practice specializes in supporting people with migraines and headaches as I found there was a major lack of good solutions for migraineurs. In my own healing journey migraines were one of my own biggest challenges I faced and after many years of study, self experimentation and healing work I started to put together a method to help people heal their migraines. I help people understand their unique migraine picture and tools that they need so they can achieve greater health and freedom from migraine. 

As someone who is passionate about about holistic health, it's important to me to understand a wide range of health topics so that I can better see the whole picture of a person. I am well-studied and practiced in nutrition, fitness, lifestyle medicine, biohacking, ancestral health, holistic health and natural medicine, the art and science of coaching, mindfulness, behaviour change, meditation, breath work, pain science and herbalism.

Health Coach, Cranial Sacral Therapist


My goal when I work with my clients is to empower them with the tools they need to overcome their unique health challenges. When I am not studying and practicing holistic holistic healing work I can usually be found in nature hiking, camping or foraging in herbal medicine. Or when I am in the city you can find me dancing zouk, contemporary, contact dance, or partner acrobatics.
