For years I felt self couscious about the type of counselor I am. The truth is that I have the biggest respect for all the health gurus on social media, but it’s just not me (believe me I tried!!). I will exchange any yoga sessions for some cuddling with my kids. I believe food should be nutritious AND tasty…Looking at you kale! If you have been struggling between: being healthy and “you only have one life to live”, I totally get it!
If you are looking for someone that understand the struggle and that will keep it real and fun, I’m the person for you!
I think there’s two type of people that works in nutrition: the passionate and the desperate. We are all passionnate about health and nutrition but for a lot of us, it was our own health issues that brought us onto this path.
That’s how my storie started…. desperation! A little over 10 years ago, I started my wellness journey, I didn’t know what it would look like but I had to do something about my health. At that point I was physically and mentally exhausted. I had 3 babies under 5, I was hormonal, overweight, bloated, tired, I was losing my hair (It was so bad that I eventually shaved my head) and I had been having my period for over 14 months. I felt broken, I didn’t recognize myself or my body. I felt like my body was giving up on me, that I couldn’t trust it. I was terrorized that something was really wrong. When my results came back all in the normal range and that my doctor decided I was ok, I can’t tell you how relieved and discourage I was.
Desperation brought me to nutrition and it was life changing. Not only did I loose a bunch of weight almost effortlessly, all my symptoms disapeared within weeks of changing my diet. I was blown away by the impact of food on my body. So much in fact that in 2016, I made the decision to go back to school to become a liscenced health and nutrition couselor.
Over the years, I met so many women like me; feeling terrible and lacking answers and support from their physician. This became my mission; helping women understanding their body and supporting them through the process. How many times I heard :- If only I would’ve known this before… ? Don’t get me wrong, we absolutly need doctors but in a time where we are surrounded by process food, busy schedules and this constant pressure to be perfect, we need all the help we can get.
