My Story

A Journey From Lucky Charms to Nurturing Nutrition

Nutrition wasn’t always a passion of mine. There once was a time when Lucky Charms was my breakfast of champions, and a potato drowned in cheese was a “balanced” meal in my book. I was even skeptical of the “gluten-free” movement, often rolling my eyes at the mere mention of it. Working as a marine educator and surfing in my free time, I lived life with gusto. Suddenly, in 2012, a surfing accident and a severe concussion became the unexpected turning point in my life, leading me down a path I had not planned on, but now cherish deeply.

The Wake-Up Call: Rediscovering Myself Through Nutrition

My surfing accident was just the wake-up call I needed. It was the “straw that broke the camel's back,” allowing me to hear my body’s cries for help. I found myself grappling with Celiac and Primary Adrenal Fatigue, which tested my resilience and gave me a fresh perspective on health and vitality. During this challenging time, one of my doctors suggested an elimination diet to identify any foods causing additional stress and inflammation to my body. Fortunately, my amazing mother, diagnosed with gluten intolerance a few years earlier (Coincidence?! I think not!), was there to help me navigate through this unfamiliar territory.

Overcoming Lyme Disease: A Renewed Sense of Purpose

During my recovery, I encountered another significant challenge: Lyme disease. This diagnosis added complexity to my health situation, but it was through addressing an unexpected mold poisoning that I found a breakthrough. Engaging in a thorough process of cleansing my body from the mold, I experienced not only relief from its toxic effects but also gained renewed strength and resilience in my fight against Lyme disease. This phase of my healing journey was pivotal, providing me with deeper insights and fostering greater compassion for individuals navigating intricate and multifaceted health challenges.

Embarking on a Healing Adventure: From Patient to Practitioner

On this new path, I not only learned about inflammatory foods but also discovered the healing power of nutrition. This knowledge was too precious to keep to myself. Inspired to share the gift of healing through nutrition, I became a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and in 2018 founded One Wave Nutrition. With further training in gut health, food sensitivities, adrenal support, and hormone balance, I became equipped to guide others on their wellness journeys.

Living and Loving a Nourished Life

Today, my life is a delightful blend of self-care, adventure, and continuous learning. Living in the enchanting state of Oregon with my supportive husband and adventure dog Luna, I savor every moment, whether I’m gardening, hiking, camping, surfing, or simply soaking in the tranquility of our nearby lake. My story is a tapestry of recovery, discovery, and empowerment through mindful nutrition and self-care, and I take great pride in my achievements.
