Who I am
My background is in food. I mean that in two ways: Number one, I’m a trained raw food chef, restaurant owner, author and recipe developer. Number two, I love food. The second one led to the first one… but there was a long period of unrest, discomfort and darkness for me around food before I could find my peace with it. The struggles I faced with food and body image led me to this place right here, to strong + radiant. The best advice anyone ever gave me was that life happens for you, not to you. And so, my struggle, as real and hard as it was, happened for me so that I could support and be of service to others on their journey to enduring health.
I grew up with a really amazing mama who raised me by herself, she was (and still is) hardworking, compassionate and health foodie to the max! She was drinking carrot juice and doing coffee enemas way before it was in vogue. I always had an affinity for healthy eating and veganism (as my mom is a 40+ year vegetarian), she taught me well and introduced me to many alternative healing methods that have truly shaped my life, my health and my families health.
