I’m leading the way for you to
check in with your heart,
and fill in the gaps between
chaos and alignment,
instinct and intuition,
and worry and well-being,
Your ideas of what you should be doing come from many places: casual conversations in the playgroup, podcasts, Dr. Sears, your well meaning mother-in-law and “How to Raise…” books.
You put your family first and leave your own needs behind. Aligning your desires with what is possible means means a better life — for you and your family.
You’re living in chaos and yearn to create an inspired and intentional life. You have tools and bits and pieces of real information but there are also enormous blank spaces in what you know and do.
You feel alone. Comparisonitis is taking over and you need a mama mentor.
I’m an observer and organizer of information, a gal who likes to take the bits and pieces and connect them into the big picture of mama life.
The science and alternative care parts of me may seem to be contradictory, but this combo means you get the best of my experience from healing families to living with real kids (messes, mischief and mayhem).
My family includes 3 children and I’ve been a foster parent. It’s been quite the laboratory of personalities and temperaments.
I understand that you want to raise healthy kids just like I do, and I know you’re doing your best.
So I think a lot about how to sort through conflicting or missing information. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by traditional health care approaches, and newer and perhaps less familiar alternative health care choices. You are open, interested and inspired to raise healthy kids but it’s confusing and one more thing to add to your MONSTER to-do list.
We all need real-life resources and simple ideas on how to implement them. We need to translate heady information into practical steps. This is exactly where I get my geek on.
I love research and statistics and experiments and truth. My degree in Neuroendocrinology lets me cut through the scientific gobbledygook and connect the data dots for you. Because how many of us has time to read and reflect on science?
There’s a ton of scientific and health information out there in the world. It barely hits your radar because it feels bewildering. You want to trust information yet not delve into it yourself, right? I love doing this and breaking it down into manageable, consumable bites for you.
But my story begins much earlier. My own path from sickness to wellness has shaped my outlook and made theory real.
I was a highly allergic kid. I had classic allergy symptoms: runny nose, facial swelling, trouble breathing, rashes, eczema, low energy/fatigue. I felt like crap my entire childhood.
What’s clear to me now is that the way I was cared for ignored the fundamental processes of the body. What’s also clear is that my parents did the best they could. They took me to doctors. They took me to allergists. They gave me antihistamines. All these were appropriate steps and represented the standard of care. However, none of this resulted in a healthy child — a healthy me.
