I have been a clinical nutritionist for 17 years. I have worked extensively in private practice while working with many practitioners like medical doctors, chiropractors, acupuncturists and body workers.

I am a licensed caterer, avid food blogger at Seaweed Snacks (since 2008) and am very involved in the food movement in my local town. I started the Nevada City Food Swap, regularly teach cooking classes, co-launched the Nevada City Community Supported Kitchen food share program and have deep roots in the local farm to table movement. I have a beautiful, strong, red headed waldorf daughter who inspires me to continually expand my ability to let my heart grow into itself. I also am an identical twin sister to Danielle, who has celiac disease and Hashimoto’s. Her experience has opened doors for me to specialize in helping others with Hashimotos. Both my sister and I follow the Autoimmune Protocol Diet and I hope to help others see this way of life healing, uplifting and do-able.
I have a strong spiritual practice that awakens me to the truth that loving is the way; to ourselves, our disease, our continual unfolding of life’s path before us. This blog is dedicated to all of you and to myself and the courage we hold to believe we can do this journey.
Two years ago Danielle began her personal journey to heal her Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Celiac, naturally. It all started with unbalanced hormones and a 17-year corporate job that her burned me out. She was lucky enough to find an Osteopath who did a full panel of tests that first discovered Celiac and then six months later at her request she asked for a Thyroid panel, which led to her diagnosis of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. As you can imagine, she was surprised but glad to finally know there was a reason for how I felt, which was tired, puffy with brain-fog all the time. She thought this is what happens to every one as they get older! It also explained those unbalanced hormones.
