Areas of expertise: Cardio metabolic disease, women’s health, weight management

Inspiration: During my educational pursuits, I have acquired valuable knowledge pertaining to the inner-workings of the human body, along with methods to promote long-term states of health and wellness. As a naturopathic doctor, I am trained to optimize health through various modalities such as lifestyle management, diet and nutrition, botanical medicine, and supplementation. My areas of focus include women’s health, weight management, and cardio metabolic disease.

My passion is to empower members of the community to be advocates of their own health through education. My philosophy includes teaching others how to take advantage of the healing power of nature. I aim to promote a holistic approach to health and wellness to women and their family

How Restore Wellness addresses health equity and inequities: I would like to let others know that their health goals are attainable. Holistic medicine and nutrition have become elitist in our culture. I would like to change that and make holistic heath and nutrition education accessible.
