I am the proud mother of two and wife of a firefighter. I work as a Child Developmental Specialist and Holistic Nutritionist. My passion lies in coaching parents to feel empowerd and confident to lead their child's learning and support team. I became interested in the connection between health and development through my children's journeys of health recovery. Through my job, I could see how many other families are seeking support to bridge their child's health and development needs which led me to pursue holistic nutrition. I enjoy helping families connect the dots to yield big successes.
I graduated with my Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Special Education and my Masters degree in Early Intervention from University of Florida. It's great to be a Florida Gator! I received my Holistic Nutrition Consultant certification through American Fitness Professionals Association.
I love spending time with my family at the beach. I also love to learn; everyday is an opportunity to learn something or meet someone new!
