I was born and raised in St. Louis, MO, but spent the last four years living, working, and studying abroad in Israel. Though I am now back in the US, I still work remotely as a content and social media manager for a nonprofit company based in Tel Aviv. I spend most of my free time blogging, hiking, baking gluten-free cookies, brewing kombucha, and connecting with my friends.
I graduated from Missouri State University in 2016 with an undergraduate degree in Communications and two minors in Dance Performance and Religious Studies. From 2018-2019, I studied Aromatherapy and Bach Flower Remedies at Reidman College in Tel Aviv. And finally, in 2020, I graduated from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem where I received my master's degree in Nutritional Sciences. Nutrition is what I am truly passionate about and I am looking forward to helping others heal through food and lifestyle changes.
During the last several years I have become especially interested in the connection between diet and disease, natural treatments and cures, the mind-body connection, and holistic health which doesn't just diagnose an illness, but rather looks at the person as a whole. What's their diet like? Do they have vitamin or mineral deficiencies? Have they ever been exposed to mold or heavy metals? Only by getting to the root of the illness and identifying the underlying cause, can you truly treat and heal an illness.
I have also come to understand that diet is not the only factor involved in healing. The mental and spiritual aspects are just as important. This is an area I am still working on, but the more I read and learn, the more I understand the importance of stress reduction, mindfulness, both physical
and mental rest, positive body image, and loving yourself unconditionally.
