I discovered nutrition therapy shortly after the birth of my second child who suffered repeated allergies, as well as ear and respiratory infections. As a result of several life events, I also struggled with adrenal fatigue, severe anaemia and gut dysbiosis.
Inspired by the power of nutrition, I embarked on a learning journey to become a nutrition therapist with the Institute for Optimum Nutrition in the hope to help people in their wellness journey, to discover the power of food, nutrition and functional medicine. The difference it made to our lives was incredible!
