Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach
It took me nearly 25 years to realize it but essentially growing up on a farm taught me everything I needed to know about human health and wellbeing. As a Wisconsin born and raised now expat to Scotland, I’m a health coach who works at the intersection of functional medicine and regenerative agriculture.
What this means is that nature’s ecosystem blueprint for growth and health helps us identify our own “why” for our own growth and health. As we know, our health is directly tied to the foods we eat, which actually means that the farm is where our health comes from, and that the health of our world’s soil has a direct impact on the health of the world’s citizens.
As a Certified Functional Medicine Health Coach, I facilitate spaces for people to move back to health and wholeness through a reconciliation process with the Earth and with the generations who brought them forth. The functional medicine approach to health coaching is a whole systems approach, where we use the stories and connections of your lifestyle to co-create an ecosystem for you to uniquely thrive within. Similarly to how farms and therefore soils thrive, it’s the connections that give us the greatest clues. So, instead of simply managing symptoms, we use our ecosystem tools such as nutrition, movement, stress reduction, sleep, and relationships to move you towards a right relationship with people, place, and yourself.
It’s my greatest joy to join folks along their journey towards health and wholeness, to be a guide in reconnecting them back to meaning and purpose.

Berkey Water Filter
Water is so critically important for optimal health. I believe that we cannot live well if we are not hydrated well. Unfortunately, our drinking water supply is contaminated with all kinds of agrochemicals, heavy metals, and even pharmaceutical drugs, which is why my family uses a Berkey Water Filter. Berkey's filter all this out and more, and because it doesn't rely on electricity to work, it's also the ultimate emergency tool as well. Use this link to buy your own!

What I Believe
Not only can we maintain health, but we can become healthier through understanding our unique design and the environments we create. This usually means restoring ancestral ways of living that create greater health and well-being for humans and the ecosystems that we belong to. It begins with understanding how we live in right relationship with nature and how we see ourselves as inextricably connected to the earth.
