My journey to becoming a Health & Wellness Professional began, as it often does for many of us in this space, with an illness.
Following the birth of my second child, I began a quick downward spiral replete with debilitating symptoms that doctor, after doctor, after doctor (after doctor) could not explain or resolve: a goiter on my thyroid, psoriasis on my hands, fingers, elbows, hair loss, severe brain-fog, bloating, anxiety, depression, weight gain, constant feeling of being cold (so intense that my ring and pinky fingers were often numb and I wore 3+ pairs of socks with Ugg boots and still had cold feet), intense fatigue. Test results were returned to me each time unfeelingly and with a perfunctory, “Your labs are normal.” End of story.
I was dismissed, ignored, and shuffled out the door. The most memorable experience was waiting two-months to see an endocrinologist that I thought had good reviews. I had such high hopes for this appointment. I was going to get an answer, some help. In the less than 15 minutes she spent with me, I was condescendingly told to eat less and exercise more (because I hadn’t already thought of that?!!!). When I asked about my goiter (which had been confirmed by two other doctors), she replied that I was “just fat there.” Needless to say, I left in tears. I felt hopeless, confused, and was thankfully starting to get pretty pissed off.
I realized the only way to get answers was to find them myself. I read books, I researched online, and was able to see a Functional Medicine doctor. She listened to me. She spent time with me and didn’t dismiss me. I felt heard and seen at long last.
My experience inspired me to help other women avoid the long, bumpy, frustrating road I had travelled. I completed certification in health coaching and now use the Functional Medicine approach to guide clients in overcoming their health obstacles.
I want to be that guide for you.
