I combine my unique experiences in both the conventional healthcare system where I worked with hospitals for several years, with my interest in and experience with holistic/integrative/functional medicine.
I focus on helping people get to the root cause of chronic health issues and work to heal them naturally. I can both navigate to doctors and practitioners who think more holistically about healing, as well as work with patients to discover and implement things in their daily life and home proven to improve health issues that doctors don't generally focus on or help with.
I became a patient advocate because I had many of my own health experiences: When I was 11, I was diagnosed with Lyme disease. My conventional doctor prescribed antibiotics, but they didn’t work to alleviate my symptoms and my mother was then told there were no other options. She chose a different path. Two years and multiple integrative therapies later, I was Lyme-free.
Over the years, other health issues have come up and each time it became clear that conventional doctors had tools to treat my symptoms, but they never got to the root of the problems, nor did they really try to cure them, and I was lucky enough to find holistic practitioners who did. I’m not shunning conventional healthcare, but I’ve seen its limitations.
In 2010, I lost my mother to suicide while she was on antipsychotic medications to treat schizoaffective disorder. At that point, I knew I needed to completely switch careers and began working for a healthcare technology company, hoping to fix the system from the inside.
After several years working with hospitals, I realized that until wellness and root cause medicine are the standard of care, the current chronic disease crisis would only continue to rise. In 2017, I began my holistic health advocacy platform (WellBe).
