The WELLthy Woman was created, because I know what it’s like to drag myself out of bed, rely on afternoon pick-me-ups to get through the day and pray to the sleep gods that “tonight is the night I actually get some rest”.
Upon digging deeper into my own health, I discovered I was battling Hashimoto’s and PCOS. I wasn't given any answers -- let alone the solution -- I needed.
I tried eating several “healthy” diets, exercising and taking handfuls of recommended supplements, but I quickly learned a hard lesson: you can do ALL the right things… but unless you GET TO THE ROOT, it’s not possible to make profound and sustainable strides towards optimal health.
So I set off on a mission to learn everything I could about my body from a physiological, biological and energetic level in an effort to heal myself. Now it's my life's mission to teach other female entrepreneurs how to do the same, so they can create a bigger impact in the world from the healthiest vessel available to them.
In my efforts to master everything about health and wellness, I was able to reverse BOTH of my diagnoses -- all without taking medications or relying on a broken medical system.
Combining my own experience with a professional education, I was able to perfect a program with a signature methodology that guides you to heal at the deepest level — the cellular level.
After graduating from Bastyr University with my Masters in one hand and my Doctorate in the other, my entrepreneurial journey started.
I know what it’s like to have a DEEP desire for FREEDOM but feel stuck in an unfulfilling and outdated paradigm.
Even though I landed a sought after residency in San Francisco, I made a hard choice to walk away, because my heart wasn’t feeling it.
I moved to Portland, Oregon and spent my first four years as a primary care provider and another two years in a cash-based private practice. I had a close mentor, a full practice, I was earning 6-figures and thought I was doing everything right…
But I was exhausted and depressed.
I'm not going to lie, it was a rollercoaster. Honestly, if I had to do it again, I would’ve done it QUITE differently. BUT when you have a vision, a dream, a plan, a passion - YOU MAKE IT WORK.
You pool your resources to hire coaches, mentors and other experts to help you materialize your vision, and you collapse time in the process. You hustle your butt off, because failure is no longer an option.
Once I decided to go all in to my virtual practice, I made 6-figures in less than 6 months and my clients were getting amazing results.
Life was LITERALLY being sucked out of me. I was a slave to insurance companies, my patients were enmeshed in a broken medical system, they had inconsistent follow-through, and I felt like my life was passing me by.
This wasn’t what I thought I was signing up for, when I became a naturopathic doctor and acupuncturist.
When I reflected on what my soul really desired, it became crystal clear. I needed FREEDOM - time, geographical and financial. So, I referred out all my patients, left my brick-and-mortar and decided to start fresh.
The thing is, I know there are SO many practitioners who deeply desire that freedom as well, and I can only see so many 1:1 clients myself. So, I saw a simple solution.
I knew I needed to share my methods, so more practitioners could build a life they love while helping more people in the process.
This is why the WELLth Mentorship was created.
